Okay. If anyone puts their foot forward on that, I've got a couple hundred playtest cards (several from The Dark too). My favorite is an ugly Swamp. It's a goofy looking hand drawn tree. I met Richard Garfield. He said "oh, I drew that!" I suggested he sign it. He drew notes coming out of it and sai...

The whelp was apparently made before other foils. It's problem is, at some angles, it's all black. You don't see the hologram, you have to look at it just right. No big deal, until you have a 60 card deck, with 12 permanents on the table and your opponent can't see all of them properly. This would b...

Yea, the foil one. Amy Weber said the art was sold to Garfield before Alpha was released. Her first mtg art sold. He bought it for a friend. She's not sure which, I need to talk to Garfield again. Way too many questions. Again. Amy had also seen the foil Whelp (I've heard there's 3 total but have no...

I think 7K isn't too unrealistic. I'd jump at that if they were the Mark Poole art Urza lands. I'd love to own either. I'm probably in the group of people who right now are thinking "if I had the money I'd jump on it." But sadly, I am tied up & broke with- what else- other big MtG items. It's always...

I think we'd all need armed guards or something. I'm not too nervous bringing some cards out of the house, but I would REALLY be worried at a place like GenCon. However, it can be fun to do... just the other day I brought all three alpha playtest decks to my local shop. Played a game with the owner ...

I once saw an alternate artwork of the Lotus done by Rush. It basicly was almost dead on, but not it... never did figure out any real info on that piece. Maybe he simply drew it & wasn't happy with it or something. I almost bought it. Nice layout there, I have always enjoyed classic pinball & video ...

The one rumour I've been hearing is that MtG has this "box" and it's one of everything they've ever made, which includes most of the rare stuff.

I find this to be false, mind you. But I hear it a lot.

I'm with Ben/ Gunslinga- there are a lot of square cornered hand cut ones out there... these too would have to be hand cut.

Almost done.... I need your help finishing 2 sets!

Hi all, Yes as always I am looking for plenty of misprints & probably always will be. However, I am VERY CLOSE to finishing two sets, and, well... you know how it gets when you are almost there. It's nice to get it out of the way. I have a normal h/w list but I'm just creating a new thread to get at...

I know quite a few people who, to get around the Alpha rule from ages ago did cut their cards to Alpha corners.

Yea on an individual basis it is hard to find any for less than $100 each any more. And several I see are no longer mint, either.

I know the person who won the auction. I saw it in person, and am not convinced that it is real. It may be, but given how easily this could be made, I am glad I didn't win it.
