Hi guys, now that I have a great local card shop again, you'll be seeing me here again on a regular basis. So, it's time to pick up where I left off. Time to create a want list again.

What I have:
I have MANY normal cards- most are older- and have plenty of misprints that I could part with as well. The list is too long to post, I've been playing since 1994. If you are looking for something specific, let me know.

A brief list of extra rarities I own that I might trade
miscuts & crimps from most sets
FE & Masques cards with a front & back printed on the same side
Summer Magic
Alt. 4th
Upside down backs on Masques foils
tons of general printing errors
albino cards
cards with tape underneath the printing
square cornered cards
square cornered foils that are upside down & miscut on back
cards with fronts on both sides
playtest cards, mostly Alpha, Ice Age and Spectral Chaos, mid 90's stuff.
Charlie Brown Medallions
etc, etc.

What I want:

Normal cards:

I am a set collector, and am a few years behind. I'll create a set want list soon. If you have sets to sell/ trade, contact me. I am only interested in English sets. Most are Time Spiral or newer, or foil. Currently putting together an Unstable foil set.

I collect cards that quote Edgar Allan Poe. Any version, of these cards are welcome. They include Frozen Shade, Phantom Monster, Urborg, etc. I also collect Balance and Wastes. I'll gladly want any misprints or mass quantitieds of all these cards, most languages too.


These are what I am here for. I want your misprinted cards, too many to mention. Upside down, faded, Summer, wrong back, miscut, whatever. I want them, plus I have several to trade.The weirder the better. Just tell me what you have & want. I will start posting images of some of my better cards in the future.

Alpha playtest cards! I have a few hundred, I always want more. Some I will trade, others are in decks (I have multiple decks). And yes, I play with these decks. If you meet me, we can play a game.

I have duplicates of many 4th Edition, Ice Age & Fallen Empires cards not listed and they are available for trade.

Outside of collecting MtG, I also collect autographs of Hall of Fame baseball players. If you have any of the difficult deceased players, I am interested. I have extras of many as well.

I will check back often, if you have any specific wants, I'd love to help. I'd also like to broaden my misprints & hope you can help. Thank you.

Whew, saw them. Nice stuff, but the only thing I'd want is the foil test print. I saw it was just sold, right? I don't have that much money to spend right now...

**Fallen Empires list of miscuts just added. Next I will try to make it a bit more readable.

as you might know, I'm attempting your same project on English Ice Age (not on Fallen Empires, even though I own quite a few of those too).

I just checked my extras and have the following I could trade for some of my needs:

Arnjlot's Ascent
Burnt Offering
Death Ward
Touch of Death
Word of Undoing

Like you, I'm basically missing Uncommons and Rares only (I even have an extra rare, Chaos Moon, but apparently you already own that), but there might still be some Commons I could use.
Pls let me have your list of extras.

I did see that you are attempting this as well, yes. I'm curious as to what we both are missing, and how far along you are. I passed halfway right before I stopped collecting for a while.

I'll send you a pm with a list.

Lord of the Pit (2)
Nevinyrral's Disk

Damn, I only have about a dozen extra rares, none of which you mentioned. Do you need any others, or is there another obscure set you are working on?

I finally found the time to make a spreadsheet showing my English Ice Age miscuts (only those showing a part of a second card or the edge of the sheet).

I currently own about 30% of rares, 20% of uncommons (this surprised me, I believed I had more Uncs than rares) and 90% of commons with several extras up for trade.

The link is here: ... c&hl=en_US

Everybody (starting from Keith of course: I just sent you a PM) feel free to contact me for trades.
