Please correct me if I am wrong, but didn't 'They' want the Unlimited cards to have a silver/grey border? Then due to cost issues they deciced on white borders, which I seem to recall was (in the article) referred to as less attractive.

So that is my answer - these are from a very early test run, where they had not decided on what colour the borders were to be.

could it be a primer for the backs so the ink does not bleed through to the other side?

I remember what Ponagger is talking about but then I think it would be on the front of the card.

CORRECT, at least I think, I am getting confused now somehow.


They wanted to print Unlimited cards with a grey/ silver border in the front.
Why is it on the back then.
Quit easy. The used a sheet which was not fully printed from unlimited and printed these on the back of the allready printed rare sheet.
As normal card stock is white in the beggining and gets the colors added in the process the silver was added from the revised printrun.
The AQ card was therfor printed on it AFTER the revised card.


So Basicly the most interesting part of the card is the Backside.
Where the grey or silver (name it as you want) border was printed to test how it would look like. Sadly they are all Offcenter and where overprinted.

Anyways I LOVE them.

The second scan is the back of the cards up top? The cards in the second scan are definitely NOT from unlimited, as there are cards like Mishras War machine and Marytrs of Korlis and Jalum Tome which are clearly (expansion symbol is clearly visible) Antiquities cards. The Raise Dead is a mystery to me.

As far as I know there was no plan to change the border color from UL to revised, but that doesn't mean there weren't print tests done.

Are the cards in the second scan something totally seperate from the 1st scan?

did you not read that post? they were originally going to have Unlimited have silver boarders. so they used the sheet later for test printing Revised and AQ cards.
