Looking for Foil Melissa Benson Cards

Post by Alien_Starfighter_Pilot » Sat Jul 10, 2010 4:42 am

My Artist collection goal is to have all of Melissa A. Benson's English-only first printings of each card she has provided art for (both foil and non-foil). For non-foil I am only missing: Alluring Scent Portal Second Age.

I am also trying to get the first foil version of the following cards:

Lord of Atlantis Time Spiral
Angel of Mercy 8th Edition

Also, was there a foil version of the Shivan Dragon in the Beatdown set, or is Gatherer just misleading with it's Shivan Dragon Beatdown picture being BB? In the Beatdown set I have 2 foil BB cards (Sengir Vampire and Ernham Djinn). I don't think there were any other foil cards from the set, but I'd love to be wrong.

I am also looking for the non-MTG cards she has provided art for, and that list is small, too. The Galactic Empire's War Veteran promo is the one very difficult to get card I can think of right now that I am missing.

I am willing to trade. please send me a message if you can help.

Also, any suggestions on where to go to create a webpage where I can list what I have and what I want? I would prefer free, but would be willing to use a pay site if there are other features.

I don't believe that there was either foils or black bordered cards in that set. I could be wrong as I tore my copy of Beatdown into parts many, many moons ago. Someone else might be more sure but as my memory serves the cards were all white bordered.

Hope that helps,

Travis

Beatdown foils were Sengir Vampire and Erhnam Djinn. Shivan was not foil, and there were no BB cards except the 2 foils.

I am not surprised by that, but still a little disappointed. A foil Shivan with Melissa's art would be beautiful, and I would just HAVE to have one.

If you PM me so I can keep your note on file I will check for this card in a week or so when I redo my green inventory. I presently note that I have a full play set which may have a P2 card in it.

I forget very easy so a PM would insure that I look.

Hey there. If you can email me a list of everything you're looking for I can see what I have. I have over 50,000 foils so I should have plenty.

When I tried the links I got an "access denied" page.

ok, I've figured out that when I'm logged in, I can view the links. just tried it when I was logged out of the site and I got the "Access Denied" page, too. damn.

well, I'll fix the wants page now, but the haves page will take a little longer, so I'll fix that one later today.

**Wants page is fixed**
