Makes sense to start off with my newest pretty, the signed rit below. Didn't include it in the deck because it is signed -- still considering on that. The other drits are shifted, upside down back, lightly printed and yellow hued respectively.

Attempt at using rarities for goblin tokens:

The idea was to only use stuff which either isn't a magic card or which didn't have P/T. The Rathi Assassin was the only textless card I used, didn't bother with UD ones. Just lost out on one of the holo dragon whelps, which would have become a token too.

Storm counters will be:

Difficult question about the value. Regarding the insurance there is no such thing as insure a collection where I live but there is the general insurance thingy when there is a breakin and I checked with them about the MTG collection and they would cover it...but getting the value right would be quite the challenge

Was that the one on eBay for $300? If so congrats for sure, great price on that.
I have enough cards to stack them all up, and commit suicide off the top!

You would have thought the artist would have been tempted to sign the card on the dotted line on the contract, did you have to ask him not to?

So I got the following in the mail:

Well, I had some signed cards I had gotten at GPs, and a pair of playmats... I wanted to display them but wasn't sure how until I saw the above being sold at Target.

So here's my GP San Diego 2011 playmat:

and my GP Nagoya 2014 playmat:

and here they are on the wall:
