Unique Pre-production rare quadrant plate films (CMYK) and full color match proof This set of items is from preproduction development and is dated October, 1993 (Beta release). They are four individual positive transparency films of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black from the lower left quadrant of the rare sheet (i.e., you can remove the black transparency and have a textless Time Walk). Additionally, there is also a full color match proof on cardstock for this quadrant.

My Dear Gary

It's Christmas not April's fool, and this is indeed a very Unique thing, that I will show to the members over the next 10 days, there's No Photoshop involved, just a very Real piece of MTG History. Stay tuned for all the others pics, and the last thing that I will post on the 1rst of January will blow the mind of a bunch of Members :wink:

Is this from the pre-Beta sheet? The word "unaVected' leads me to think so.

I would like to know too. Early sheets and plates were not done at WotC (aka Peters basement) but across town at a printer.
