Gary, Same with me, but I think it has to do with the new and "improved" Ebay that can take a while to update International sales after they have gone final. I linked to the reference for the four auctions rather than to any of the 4 specific auctions. Ebay constantly updates its searchable database...

Depending upon who wins, you need to be careful. If you are paid by Paypal, then unless you ship in a certain way (with signed receipt, etc.) you can end up having to refund the payment. If it is someone you know it isn't a problem.

Maybe we can trade! I was trying to upgrade one of my my Gaea's Liege copies. I also wanted to upgrade one of my Lord of the Pit cards, but someone beat me to the one SCG offered! If your spare Lord of the Pit is NM/M (like most SCG cards are when they claim they are), maybe we can do a 2 for 1 trad...

This subject came up on MOTL. Last couple I bought (this year) were less than $30, but they are getting scarcer. Over the next year I would expect boxes at $300 - $350, and individual starters at $40, will likely be the norm unless another stash is unleashed on the market. The problem with alt 4th v...

Based upon my uncut sheet, if there is one wrong-backed Magic pre-constructed deck, there will be two. It turns out when Wizards has the precons made, they use a typical 121 card sheet, and fill it with two different 60-card decks, plus a single filler. Which means that at least some Pokemon and Har...

Amazing how the knowledgeable "flipper" or dealer, or whatever you want to call him, made the big bucks reselling an item he didn't know the story behind. I wonder what kind of story he used to make the sale. That is the difference between collectibles like Magic and more established types like art ...

Waiting for some news from sk1 too, haven't heard about him since... Did it get that far inland? Storm trashed the Jersey and Connecticut shores, and the Hudson River Basin (Staten Island, Manhattan and Jersey Cities like Hoboken) as you have probably seen on TV or the Internet. But the storm also ...

I'm doing pretty well. Had lots of rain and lots of wind. Power was up and down much of last night, but seems stable now. I have a bit of cleanup, but since I wasn't in a storm surge I'm counting my blessings.

I can include, for the Championship card and the S dragon in that the items were released to the public--even if only in media form. This would be the same as promoting the company with banners, media events, flyers, etc. ad infinitum-ad naseum (sp?). Gary These items should be a whole new category...

Folks; I agree with hammr that what is really most desireable in the world is a site that historically covers the birth and growth of our hobby in as many aspects of that history as people are interested in. The more detailed, the better. That will only happen when hammr makes that website. Bottom ...

Your post misses a few important points. Any web forum becomes a community. You get comfortable with the members. For world-wide collectors of obscure Magic-related items, this comfort is an important component. Forum members are fellow collectors, a network of contacts for items and for information...

Patrick, It has been longer than months. If you were to go back through the posts, you would see that allowing interested people to join the forum has been a problem for many years. The difference is that this site used to be well worth the two or three day wait for a new account to be personally ap...
