Re: Mail Brag!

A pimp collection I got recently.

Re: starcity has 1 starlit angel chinese in stock!

THIS might be another reason for the price of this card..... ( not mine) http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/xx48/blamu/startlit_chinese_100_zpsza7o7bjl.jpg That makes a lot of sense. I find this card very overvalued. I know Simplified Chinese is very rare, but it's just a regular uncommon! We aren'...

Is this card an uncommon? I wonder why it's so expensive in that case. The last one one on Ebay sold $405. Is Portal so extremely rare in Simplified Chinese that an uncommon can be so expensive? I know there are many angels collectors and this card is also wanted by rarities collectors, but it seem...

Of course, the values on all of these is based on an assumption that graders do not have Mondays, in-law problems, girlfrineds cheating on them or wives going through that delicate time of a womens' life. It also assumes that people in these companies are 100% immune to favoritism, clout and payola...

I'm surprised nobody voted Japanese, while prices are noticeable higher than for the rest of languages (except Korean and Russian, obviously). There's still people that prefer it, for tradition, because they like it more, or because they don't even consider Korean and Russian, as it's too hard to fi...

BGS 10 alpha is extremly rare. This unco (a cheap unco) sold 3400 USD : [img] [img]http://i1259.photobucket.com/albums/ii543/tromagic/alpha%20bgs%2010%203400%20usd_zpsfkbrr1hp.jpg[/img] The BGS 9.5 sell lower than PSA 10.

It look like the price of the alpha PSA 10 are 2-3 time higher than last year. Even the common sell for 150 + ... It was arround 70-90 on free auctions last year. Alpha is the key set for MTG. The Gem mint alpha is the holy grail :-D It's more surprising when you consider that many of us prefer BGS...
