Re: Alpha/Beta set sales comps?

Last winter a friend asked me to sell their full Unlimited set, which ranged from nm to played and agreed to aim for 10k euros as the price of the cards. The owner received another offer for 10k after we had agreed to break the set. So far about 4.5k has been sold and there are still few moxen, Lotu...

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, german misprint

A new Planeswalker misprint/translation error. German Ugin, the Spirit Dragon has a rather nice translation error: "X: Exile each permanent with converted mana cost of X or more , that's one or more colors" The Ugin's Fate Promos are already pretty high in value, but the german copies also have this...

So perhaps Chinese has a lower print run, and the price of English is more effected by demand. I just remember when putting my sets together that English was the hardest for me to find. Japanese was the easiest. Hi Tim Was it easy to complete the Simplified and Traditional Chinese one ? I also had ...

Love the pic. "Thousands addicted by burnt addictive ink. Hasbro stock soars." "Somehow the Chinese got their hands on the real stuff." states a WotC employee, who wishes to stay nameless.

Four sealed Arena land packs possibly on sale

A newish member on MtGSalvation just asked the value of his Saga foil lands, with 4 sealed packs included here.

So if anybody still needs these, there might be a good chance to contact the person.

With kind regards,

Few judges did quick background checks. There are currently roughly 1100 level 2 or higher judges. Maybe 1k of them have certified someone and this might be pretty high guestimate, as newer L2s haven't had a chance and the as GPs require one to be L2 or higher lots of the L2s are pretty recent. I be...

I went over my lands and couldn't find any Plains or Mountains with the larger star, but I randomly had both Plains and Swamp with both versions. I still need to check my 10 judge Bolts, but I would guess those were all printed in one go, instead of over two years like the Arena lands. I had thought...

Topic: Differences in Foil scans---why?
Replies: 6
Views: 1590

Hello Gary, This can come from couple of scanner issues, or from the cards itself. I'm not an expert, but knowing how the early scanner worked, I can speculate that the method hasn't changed too much. The scanner issues might be: 1) Software compiling the scan. Scanners are bad at scanning foils. Th...

I've been getting offers for 520 € after MCM fees of 5 % (total 547 €) for a nm/m set. The buyer wanted to buy several sets at that price range... Last year I sold one set for 525 €. Another Finnish trader told me he sold one ex+ set for 550 € last summer, but that seemed quite overpriced. But getti...

Evolution: the art of Rebecca Guay kickstarter

Rebecca opened a kickstarter for her art book two weeks back, but I haven't seen any mention of it here yet. With several MtG-related prints availlable, there might be some interest to people here. There was even original Serra Angel art from the 1993 comics and originalö art of Wall of Wood, but so...

Cool. It is interesting that some of these have a green sticker stuck to the wrapper, whereas others have the green circle printed as part of the wrapper. I don't know why the stickers had to be added afterwards, but our university games club was sourced to stick those finnish/swedish rules -sticke...
