Hi Bernd

As you might have noticed, those are a good part of the regular misprints, errors, typos, that happened with Alpha:

Every instance of the artist Douglas Shuler's name was misspelled as "Schuler".

Animate Artifact
Benalish Hero
Contract from Below
Drain Life
Drain Power
Icy Manipulator
Northern Paladin
Prodigal Sorcerer
Psionic Blast
Tranquility
Unholy Strength
Veteran Bodyguard
Weakness

Birds of Paradise — there are two slashes and a space after the word "Flying" instead of a hard return.

Circle of Protection: Red — miscredited to Anson Maddocks; it should be Mark Tedin.

Cyclopean Tomb — printed without a mana cost; it should be four colorless.

Death Ward — miscredited to Dan Frazier; it should be Mark Poole.

Demonic Hordes — printed with an upkeep cost of literally "BBB" instead of three black mana symbols.

Elvish Archers — printed with power/toughness 1/2 instead of 2/1.

Force of Nature — printed with an upkeep cost of literally "GGGG" instead of four green mana symbols. Douglas Shuler's name was also misspelled.

Goblin Balloon Brigade — the wording for the activated ability could be interpreted to give all Goblins Flying instead of only itself, which was the original intent. The wording was changed to reflect the original intent beginning with Revised Edition.

Goblin King — the wording gave all Goblins +1/+1 and mountainwalk, but the original intent was that this would not apply to the Goblin King itself. Beginning with Revised Edition this problem was solved by listing the Goblin King's type as "Lord"; beginning with Ninth Edition the word "Goblin" returned to the type and the wording for the ability was changed to "Other Goblins get +1/+1 and have mountainwalk." [18]

Island Sanctuary — protected you against creature damage from any nonflying, non-islandwalk creature, even your own.

Karma — Different text and font compared to Beta

Mana Short — Different text and font compared to Beta

Orcish Artillery — printed with a mana cost of {1}{R} instead of {1}{R}{R}.

Orcish Oriflamme — printed with the mana cost {1}{R} instead of {3}{R}.

Phantasmal Forces — printed with an upkeep cost of literally "U" instead of a blue mana symbol.

Red Elemental Blast — printed as an instant instead of an interrupt.

Rock Hydra — printed with an upkeep cost of literally "RRR" instead of three red mana symbols; also the cost to preserve a head when the Rock Hydra suffers damage is depicted as "R" instead of one red mana symbol.

Sedge Troll — miscredited to Jeff A. Menges; it should be Dan Frazier.

Siren s Call — Missing the accent should be Siren's call

Tropical Island — miscredited to Mark Poole; it should be Jesper Myrfors.

Twiddle — Different text and font compared to Beta

Unsummon — the clause reading "enchantments on creature are CARD ed" should instead read "enchantments on creature are discarded". Douglas Shuler's name was also misspelled.

OTHER

Basalt Monolith had errata for a while to prevent the mana it generated from being usable with itself because of an infinite mana combo with Power Artifact and an infinite damage-to-player combo with the original wording of Relic Bind, which also received errata to prevent this combo.

Channel is one of many cards that is overpowered because of its ability to trade one resource for another at a low cost, in this case life for mana.

Hi Alexis: I knew of some issues the print run had but wasn't aware of the plethora of issues. Boy, maybe it will help you to fetch a premium here and there. Will you list prices, too? Cheers, Bernd

Hi Bernd

For now, I'm double checking condition, as for pricing, as I don't collect Alpha, I have to go through 95 cards on different websites to get an idea according to condition, etc., some people are sending me list with price offers in Euros, as a lot of them are based in Europe. I don't know yet, how I will organize the sale and where: auction with starting price, fixed price, sale with best offer, etc. I will let you know.
