I stopped buying product in any signifigant amounts when I opened up my first Pro Tour player card :-( I might do a Pre release and that's about it from now on. I will continue to buy/collect ABU and other rare cards but I've had enough with the new stuff....

I guess it's pretty much a circular arguement. My main reasoning is: 1) It doesn't make them any substantial profit to reprint those cards. The collectors sets may have been profitable back when WOTC was a small company but now they would have to mass produce which just destroys collecting altogethe...

It's not logical for WOTC to reprint any "big" cards... They usually publish an article every year or so about why it wouldn't make any sense. People still often talk about it happening... as if they know something that the people who run WOTC don't know ;-) It really makes no sense to screw collect...

To be fair,

Troll and Toad is usually preposterously overpriced...

I think the card is going to rise in value so I'd hold (like you threaten to do) if you don't get an offer that appeals to you :-)

I think it's nuts by the way! I'd rather buy some sealed Beta product and take my chances getting a Gem Lotus that way:-)

Sorry about my rant!

Wyvern backed FE value?

Just curious how much these are going for? Someone offered to sell me some and I can only find the ones T&T is selling. Usually they're astronomically higher than the norm...

I guess I'm biased cause I think it's a dumb idea. I suppose that it's good for anybody making a killing off of selling graded cards or doing the grading though. I got some PSA 10's, Beta stuff. Cards look great but not really any better than some stuff I've got put away... I think it's a fad type o...

I think Beckett looks nice but PSA is no worse a grader than BGS. PSA is older and has a much larger population of graded cards than BGS. This explains why there will be fewer higher and lower graded cards from BGS. Beckett has an MTG publication which "shills" it's own graded cards. Beckett used to...

Ebay inquiry

I was curious if anyone has seen any original MTG artwork (bigger) than Guardian Beast sell on Ebay up to this date?

Looks like they had the Original Artists do the Artwork up until now.
I'd think Dan Frazier could use the work.
Very nice new Artwork though.
