What card(s) do you collect?

Post by fvzappa » Wed Nov 07, 2007 1:06 am

I was looking at another thread, of which involves a huge lot of cards, and wondered about all of us on here...

I mean, we have our set goals, rarity goals, etc. but many of us collect a few unpopular cards for personal reasons. Ages ago, this was a thread I'm sure, but, as an owner of WAY too many cards, it'd be nice to know what cards each of us collect so that when I am going through a few thousand cards I can remove any/ all cards with another forum member in mind. YOU, for instance, right? I'm not talikg about "I collect Asain Birds of Paradise" (who wouldn't pull those from their unsorted cards?), I'm talking about "I collect Uncle Istvans" or something of the sort.

I'll start. I have several, but the junk cards that you'll find in the heaps of excess cards are these two-

Phantom Monster (uncommon) & Frozen Shade (common)

Both are found in the earlier base sets. And they quote Edgar Allan Poe in the flaor text. I collect all of the Poe cards in any fashion.

Your turn!

There's an old archived thread about this here
http://www.magiclibrarities.net/forum/v ... php?t=3155

it'll be interesting to see if anyone's interests have changed since then.

I still collect Kudzu, Apathy and alpha Copper Tablets

As my member title says: Counterspells (BB only), of course the Force of Will and Mana Drains are the most interesting cards :wink:

I collect Bird Maidens, but not very exzessiv. Just when I find some in a common box at a dealer or something like that.
My main target is the "Heer der geplagten Skelette" Misprint.

If it's wielding a triton, I want one...

I think I picked that tribe so long ago because I hated red, I hated gobline decks specifically and I like playing blue whenever I get a choice.
Collecting Merfolk and Lords of Atlantis, 1 of each, every language, misprints, etc.
