See, I can actually PLAY my Black Lotus. You can't do anything with baseball cards except look at them. They're useless. Full ack Never understood the thrill of Baseball cards... You had to be there! It was mainly a US thing, since cards were hard to find in Canada and the Caribbean (meaning many o...

And yet a $1 (at best) card sells for $46. Unless they are really unusual (like the card backs misaligned compared to the card front), miscuts should not be valued higher that perfect cards. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And many Magic collectors like oddities, regardless of how the were...

Consider in 12 months when the cuts are distributed. You come across a single miscut. How do you identify if it is organic? It is sometimes impossible. We all know there are uncut sheets in circulation. Any uncut sheet can be turned into cards. If the owner finds the right company, the cards can be...

is it not difficult to cut them nicely with the right size and crisp edges/corners? It is a bit difficult. With mechanical cutting there are two major types of processes. There is one method where sheets are continuously fed through guides and disc-type blades cut the sheets, into strips and the st...

This is a reason why I never bothered with mis-cuts. It is one thing to try and cut a sheet into individual cards. But in the past this has usually been an option for convenience rather than profit, since the uncut sheet was priced at the price of the cards it contained, or perhaps at a slight premi...

My question is why would anyone ever bid on these cards from a brand new Ebay seller from Costa Rica?

Would have gone for a lot less if I hadn't bid it up that high. Figured whoever outbid me probably needed it more than me.

If anyone here bought it and is opening product please let me know. I only need a few upgrades, and have tons of extras to trade.

It was uncommons and not rares, so there wasn't quite the crazy demand there would be today. And the world was much more focused on players rather than collectors, so there weren't too many buyers wanting one of everything. Wizards worked much of the program through their official retail channels. A...

One of the biggest screw ups ever for WOTC. Half the US got one list, half got the other. I remember trading in things like mana batteries and asking for mana drains and land taxes.

Item 1 attempts to control distribution so that speculators have a tougher time influencing the market.

When I was in the print business, we expected to scrap anywhere from 3% to 7% of a print run for set-up and for quality defects. This was important because we had to plan on initiating more product than ordered so that we had enough "good" product at the end. Most of our contracts, which were pretty...

It sounds perfectly logical. Most sheets have 121 card capacity. Which works well for two 60-card decks.

I never collected APs, or almost anything signed. When you get around to regular cards I can respond a bit more positively.

Assuming they were part of a sheet with other promos, one of these got lost in the sorting / collating, and ended up in the wrong pile. Somewhere Wizards has a bunch more just waiting for the appropriate reason to distribute them, or else forgot about them. Having one in the wild might prompt Wizard...
