impressive

I counted 52 Guru Swamps there, with only around 30 of the others and no Plains... Maybe the seller used only dual lands and Karakas for his/her white mana. It's also always nice to see a good amount of alpha and beta duals in nice shape. It's nice to see some collections people buy here, as I have ...

Setting goals

Setting goals and changing the direction can be hard, frustrating, fun or liberating... Or all of them at the same time. Reaching the goals is often great, but can also be a it of a letdown, if it comes too easy. I remember when I decided to get a full set of 40 black bordered duals around 1998. Tha...

P3K-set price

Hello Gary, I've been following the prices a lot and the traditional chinese set sold for only 1.6k$ and change, meaning around 1.5k after fees. I also understood that the buyer has already started selling the cards as singles, with the total price coming to almost 2.8k$, if they can get their buy-i...

EDH

Welcome to the club. I found that the first deck was OK, just decimated most of my higher caliber trade stock, but the second deck started to leave ugly holes in my sets. The good part was starting it before most europeans did, so I did get some sweet deals at the beginning. At least I'm at two deck...

Collection protection

This thread prompted me to finally start an index of where in my collection the bigger money is for my wife and kids. Starting that felt a bit morbid, but having seen hapless sellers nearly giving out collections, protecting the money invested seemed prudent. It turns out to be useful for insurance ...

Alpha Regrowth

Great results for Preston, but woe on me. These auctions just destroyed several haggling sessions, when I have been trying to get a seller to lower their asking price of alpha Regrowth from 30 €. No hope of that anymore. :-D I also dropped out on every single alpha auction before the end, as the pri...

Full old foil Mtgo-sets

7th edition factory sealed sets should be pretty rare and IPA was not widely redeemed either. New sets were coming out and IPA was not drafted heavily anymore. I agree on the 2x multiplier, but finding the right collector might take some work. Maybe MtGO traders/Cape Fear guys would appreciate a pie...

Oversized foils

I've gotten comfirmation from a few other stores with premium Helvaults - 1 in Sweden (Hearsay, I haven't seen a single one for sale from Sweden, so this might be a phantom Vault) - Paris (Magic Bazaar had one) - Brussels (Outpost Brussels, it seems) - Italy (There might be two, there's a lot of cop...

I was just quick and lucky. There's some good points in going to work early after my kids decide it's time to wake daddy up and notice the 30 premium Helvaults info. I know of 3 foil Helvaults here in Europe, and last time I checked none of the players, who had opened the third one had listed any on...

Oversized foil angels

I picked up one of each of these at 10-30 €, but I predict that the price will settle around 50 € for a while, before most will end up in collections. In a year the price will go up to maybe 100 each, when new angel collectors try to get these. I will personally pick some more up, if the price dips ...

Foil Helvaults

WotC has confirmed that there were just 30 foil Helvaults. http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtg/daily/arcana/963 That means that there are only 3240 foil tokens, and if I understood correctly (54 of each promo in the vault) 1620 of each foil angel/demon. So 33 tokens equals 1 % o...

I doubt that you could send alcohol without declaring it and paying taxes. I'm no expert on US tarifs, but I kind of doubt that alcohol would be exempted from them. Also there might be quite a bit of paperwork involved. And no air transport without more paperwork. Most likely the bottles should be s...

Sorin emblem backs

I managed finally to visit my local dealer and checked all their 10+ english emblems. Every single one had the "All things Magic"-backs. So I can finally officially say that it's the common english version in Europe. Unfortunately those all had small nicks and scratches, so I decided not to pick any...

Campfire Desert

Great collection, But I see the 'campfire Desert' missing from AN. One copy of Desert on every sheet of AN had a small white dot on it, right on top of one of the dunes. Some collectors count it as a different version along with the light/dark ones. I also notived that you did not have the different...

Guru

As per request . Three binder pages of each land. I have to admit that this is a bit of a brag item, and I would be sad to let my lands go, so I priced them accordingly. But the lowest price for full Guru set on MCM is 315 € for a single full set, with all the others at 350 € or higher. Islands are...
