Re: Enter the Battlefield now streaming on Netflix

Thanks... I didn't even know of such a thing.

Guess I'll log off and go check it out. :wink:

Re: No Love for an Alpha Starter on eBay?!

Hey GlobalBoosterHunter,

Yeah, the feedback does it for me... I don't care how much I want it, I'm not paying 4 figures to someone with 2 feedback. [-X

Oh, and the German only shipping can't help. :-P

Re: In Memoriam of Artists That Are Gone

Wayne England and Christopher Rush back-to-back... a sad time for Magic fans indeed. :'-( I never met Wayne, but Chris was such a great guy when we met years ago at GenCon. I know he had some trouble for a while there - Gary was in touch with him when he lived in Colorado. Lately I thought he was do...

Re: Real People on MtG cards

Back in "the day" it was very common practice to use real people for the models for vampires in the Jyhad card game. I think spouses, friends, Wizards employees, and other artists were commonly used. I have many of my vampires signed by both the model and the artist. :wink:

Re: Alpha Cut 4th Ed. How do you tell?

Hey Gary,

I know little about it too, but I've always shared your skepticism. I work in a print shop and we have die cutting machines; while printing MtG cards would involve a lot of work, I could Alpha cut anything you want en mass no problem. :-O

Re: Advice needed about APs

Hey Gary, Those are very cool - love Dan's big signature. :-P I don't know if anyone grades AP's, but they might. Since they have square corners you'd have to be careful... MtG collectors have no idea how rough graders are on corners that aren't sharp!! TBH you could probably sell as is - with your ...

If anyone is going, I'd love to get some of my Drew Tucker cards signed if you could help. [-o<

Re: Freeing some graded cards

Busted ! You're freeing 9 grades ! With Yoda's lightsaber ? :-D LOL, no... although if I had a lightsaber I'd probably use it. Most of my later crackouts were 9's, as I was trying to both finish my artist set in mint and thin out my excess graded cards (keeping mostly 9.5/10's). Blinding Angel?!?! ...

Re: Freeing some graded cards

I'm guessing not very often. I tossed most of my flips at first until I knew about sending them in. At that point I started saving them... http://i258.photobucket.com/albums/hh280/thulnanth/20150905_114413.jpg I have over 100, probably tossed over 100, and I'm just one person... :-P Take it easy, Ja...

Re: In What Order were the Sets Designed / Printed / Released ?

Hey cataclysm80, Fun read... it really takes me back. I started playing Magic while I was on Christmas break from college in 1993. The friends who showed it to me had discovered it at GenCon that summer. I remember going to the hobby shop and buying 24 boosters of Unlimited. Maybe 5 days later I was...

Hey cataclysm80, As someone who works for a printer, great response!!! I agree with everything you said... I'm also glad you said it since I can't type and that would've taken me a week to put together (lol). It is very common to use prior printed sheets for makeready when setting up presses. The fa...

Re: Freeing some graded cards

Hey all, Yeah, I cracked out all my cards that were 8.5 or lower... at those grades they're better to have raw to play with (over 100 crackouts). I've even cracked some 9's to fill in sets (including beta Moxes and an Ancerstral Recall). I know you can send the flips to PSA and they're supposed to a...
