Difference between Collector's Edition and International CE?

Post by Alien_Starfighter_Pilot » Sun Jan 16, 2011 6:41 pm

I've looked on the site, couldn't find anything about differentiating them in previous posts (I looked back to late 2007).

there is not a description in the Magic Card Sets.

the sets are not on the rarities side (maybe they can be added/moved to the rarities side under "Box Set Cards"?)

wouldn't mind some help before I start my global collection so that I know what I need to look for.

The difference is one says "Collectors' Edition" on the back of the card and the other says "International Edition" :)

The other difference is that there were fewer International Edition printed.

10,000 Collector's Edition

5,000 International Edition (according to Crystal Keep) <-- I think this is accurate
3,000 International Edition (according to MTG Salvation Wiki)

That is why I didn't post any numbers above as this has always been kinda foggy in my mind.

Have you heard this story before?

"Ten thousand of the domestic edition were printed and ten thousand of the international edition were printed. Due to demand, five thousand of the international edition were used for the domestic edition." From:

http://www.wizardscupboard.com/collecto ... 26429.html

I haven't. I'm sure they just ran the other 5000 through the press and reprinted the backs........ Which would result in 15000 and 5000. hummm

Hi Clay
If someone is willing to scan in High quality the 363 cards, in the future, I can add those in the Box Sets subsection :wink:

Ok Alexis, I see your point (see? I told ya'll I need as much help as possible).

actually, regarding my original post, I can't see a need for anything more than the backs of each of the sets to differentiate them.

# of sets printed and other background information would be a nice added bonus, but isn't crucial.

Hi Clay
I know this has been covered somewhere on the forum, but if I do remember the small booklet in C.E and I.C.E are different. Will try to find back the topic.
