The portal glasses are cardboard and plastic and were store promos in '97. I picked up a pair on ebay in '98 for a few bucks and actually never opened them. A rare oddity nowadays as I haven't seen them at all since I bought them.

In my not so humble opinion regarding rarities, the rest is really nice(Mox Diamond set- good 'global' set of cards to have), somewhat unnecessary (Japanese Chronicles- BB cards- only like 10 of them have ever really seen the light of day in decks) or not really worth the cost (Citadel tokens-plain, plastic and ugly is no way to go through life).

The Portal Glasses (binoculars, really) were also given out at various conventions... or maybe I was just sent some as prize support because I am so darned handsome. :-D Anyway, they were free to everyone.

That said, things that are free aren't saved by many people, so these might now be worth some money now.

Best regards,
