It's defiantly Unique but I've seen a few interesting ones. I've seen some more playable ones that I would place as better choices. If that was a Remand or something then it's be a little silly.

I think it's a 0 to high. It's a cool misprint but it's not worth $2k the card isn't playable at all. If we were talking something playable it would be completely different but it's no Darkblast or Remand. Even if it was I don't think it would see $2k it would have to be a T1 card and then you wouldn't be able to play it anyway.

I honestly think I have a better one than that- It's so screwed up that I couldn't scan it to show it properly. I'd have to make a video. In the near future I should attempt something to convey what I have. In person, everyone seems to love it.

Wouldn't mind having that one on ebay, however, most people that don't deal with misprints think that theirs are worth a goldmine.

anyone else have the urge to rip that tag off? Maybe it's just a stroke of OCD :P

Well, I found his price. I offered him $201 and he took it. This'll be a nice addition, but I'm going to have to find a way to properly put it into my binder without damaging it, & still be able to convey what it is. I may have to look for the sheets that have much larger pockets.

Anyhow, I thought the price was fair, I couldn't justify asking any more though. And I need to somehow show everyone the more fascinating miscut in the collection too.

How did you end up putting this in a binder? Gotta pic?

That did take some thought. Luckily, my misprint binder- the main one I carry with me- has a pocket on the inside front. I then took a large toploader that is about 4" x 6" & put it in there flat.

That seems best, as I can show it to someone without damaging it. Last thing I need is for the excess part to rip off of the rest of it.

Cool, that looks like it should work pretty well, and it shows the misprint very clearly as soon as you open the binder. Speaking of binders, I was wonder whether people tend to place cards in sleeves and then put the sleeved cards in 9-pocket pages or if everyone just puts the cards directly into 9-pocket pages without sleeves as well? Most sleeves are too tall to do the former and part of them sticks out from the top of the 9-pocket page pockets.
