AXIOS: do you have an albino Blue Elemental Blast? I'd say that is one of my fav's in my collection. That & the Charlie Brown Saphire Medalion. Those are cool.

Albino cards missed the coloring stage of printing, so the card is black and white.

These cards are found mostly in the Ice Age & older white bordered sets. The two most playable cards are Lightning Bolt & BEBlast. I've seen some with normal backs, some without, but they are missing color, & only show black & white on the front. They are quite cool.

As of now, I have one. I am getting a rather large collection of misprints- hundreds of cards I've never even seen- soon though. I do not believe he has the Charlie Brown Medallion. I've seen only two, & I own one of them.

Some of the stuff I am getting though... mmm.... I can't wait until my friend gets back, I'll have some damn fine additions to my collection, that's for sure. I'll drop you a line when I do- it'll be around Xmas.

Thanks guys I never heard of them  do you have a scan I'd be interested in seeing what they look like. Are they really hard to come by. I'd be interested to add one to my collection.

Are these related to the yellow IA cards?  I have a yellow Goblin Mutant that I used to play with all the time.  I had heard of other yellow cards, but never saw them.

As far as scans, I asked Santa for a scanner ;) Maybe someone else has one. Just picture a Bolt or BEB without any color.

The Charlie Brown Medallion will not show up on a scan. Take a Sapphire Medallion & get a glare on it & look at the top right corner, There is a simple illustration of Charlie brown's head & part of his body. Seriously. It is very hard to describe, too bad I don't know of an easy way to show you.

Your yellow Snowman sounds like it is similar to what I have. I've seen various "stages" of the miscoloring of the Ice Age cards, some are pretty funky.

I also am getting from my friend his Candelabra that has a completely different color scheme on the back, looks all psychadelic. I'll have to scan that beauty when I get it. I know I'll be asking a boatload of questions once I get his misprints.

I remember discussions about the Charlie Brown cards at some point in the past.  Not sure if that was on MTGNews, or back on Bob's discussion forum.
It was an interesting discussion, if memory serves me.

Yea, I'd imagine that if one was put on ebay today, it'd get more. It has slowly become known amongst collectors. When someone told me, I had a good laugh. I then was shown one, & got an even bigger laugh.

So, any time i see one in a binder, I take it out to carefully examine it. I haven't found a CB by chance yet, but rarely do I even see a Medallion of any kind in anyones binder.

Either way, showing it off always freaks people out. I flat out tell them what it is, they think I'm joking, & I show 'em. The response is always worth it.

If I ever sell it, I'll put a link on this site. I'll make thousands  ;D
