Re: Any Recent Sale of Splendid Genesis?

BTW, I am still beating myself for selling Beta Mox Ruby BGGS 9.5 for $3k several years ago when I needed some cash flow.
I did not expect the card to rise up in value by this much this fast, @ upward of $10K!

Any Recent Sale of Splendid Genesis?

Hello, I have been away for years thanks to the birth of my son. Just curious, has there been any recent sale of Splendid Genesis? If so, does anyone kept track of how much it was sold for? If not, how much do you think the price would be? I see that MTG rare singles in general, have risen up in val...

Re: Looking for Special Guest Gift Cards

I thought about buying Robot Chicken, but the whole aspect of the card simply being composed of another magic card with inkjet print paper with picture of robochicken magic card pasted on the front, was an absolute turnoff.

Re: Splendid Genesis: BGS 8.5. Should I Crack It or Keep It?

Do you agree that it is an 8.5? There are authentication companies who don't grade, they just case the item and certify that it is genuine. I know this is true in most hobbies but I am not sure in the card market. The cost of the service is cheaper. If you sell it as an 8.5 then people will base th...

Re: Force of Will Judge Promo Rarity?

It was awarded to far fewer Judges than regular Judge promos. In particular, it was only awarded to judges that certified other judges or some such. One reddit poster speculated that there are only 1,000 or so such judges: https://www.reddit.com/r/magicTCG/comments/250jcw/judge_foil_force_of_will/c...

Force of Will Judge Promo Rarity?

Greeting my fellow collectors. Perhaps this has been addressed already in the other threads, but upon using the forum search function, the sheer number of results I got somewhat deterred me from pursuing more. My question is as follows: What warrants the Force of Will DCI Judge Promo card to cost mo...

Re: Splendid Genesis: BGS 8.5. Should I Crack It or Keep It?

Hi there. I would just leave it as it is. I think the Splendid is one of those cards that it won't fluctuate much in price regardless of the grade. As Matt said, the BGS label guarantees authenticity and if you were to sell it at some point, it would definitely help. Hi there. I would just leave it...

Re: starcity has 1 starlit angel chinese in stock!

Why does this card carry so much value? Tried searching on google and besides the fact that it has alternative image, thanks to Communist China, I couldn't find any reasons that explains its pricing.

Re: Splendid Genesis: BGS 8.5. Should I Crack It or Keep It?

To be honest, I don't think it would change anything to crack it or not. First, BGS 8.5 doesn't command any premium on a card, so you wouldn't make more or less profit out of it. Indeed, it guarantees the authenticity of the card so it's a good thing. Now if you ever get a buyer that absolutely wan...
