Didn't realize that mat is worth so much. Its the mat I play on on the very rare occasions that I play paper magic.

I think few collectors would be intereste...

For storage, I have found that comic book bags with the cardboard backing boards work quite nicely. That's what I use as well. Do you store them individually, or put multiple in a single bag? I put 4 per bag. I've been using cardboard comic book boxes but am wondering if there's something the right...

The seller recently responded with the following about the condition: Took a long time too piece this together. No folds or creases, no staples. Stored in a smoke free environment. Some have border chipping but most do not. Hard to get these in this condition as they are so hard to store due to size.

Did you question the seller about the condition ? Are you planning to bid there to get the lot ? Yes, I questioned the seller (see "...the seller hasn't responded to the query I sent about 4 hours ago" in earlier post). I'm not planning to bid, not sure how I would explain it to my wife. Plus, I do...

Let's say I have none. I have a few only so it is better to buy a set. The current auction doesn't provide any guidance about the condition of the cards and the seller hasn't responded to the query I sent about 4 hours ago. If you are willing to risk it, buy this set and then get the Radiant 99 fro...

A few years ago, someone had a complete set for sale on eBay. I think it sold for over $1,000. There was a forum thread about the auction.

Any idea of the value of this lot please ? I am a complete Newbie for that. Buying individual cards from online stores would probably cost over $800. I'm assuming an average card price of around $10 (eye-ball estimate, I haven't spent the time to add up all of the prices). I don't think they get a ...

Re: Looking for Complete Oversized Arena Set

A "complete" set was listed on eBay yesterday Unfortunately it is missing the hard to find Radiant 99 6x9 cards, or the seller forgot to list them. Is this why you mention "complete"? Yes, that's why I specified "complete". A "complete" set isn't that difficult to assemble (if you are patient enoug...

Does anyone know if you must live in Europe to register for MKM? I don't see the United States listed in the address information.

I use comic book bags with backing and store them in comic book boxes. I'd be nervous storing them in a binder. You don't want them messing with the binder rings.

Congratulations on your set. I've been working on my player's set ever since those Arena seasons. I just need 10 more from '99 Radiant.

Thanks ! I'm also helpless with Google Maps. I guess it will be a good training :-) My wife's been a good tutor. Search for "Fort Mason California" in the map. That should center the map on that area. Then, enter "hotel" in the search box. That should put red dots on the map for locations that prob...
