hurloon minataur denim jacket

Post by Mirror_Lich » Fri Jun 05, 2009 12:55 am

Does anyone have any idea on the production, raritiy, or value?

More importantly, does anyone want one? (tom?) ;)

I have an embroidered Jester's Cap denim jacket. I did some research years ago, and found that at least a few of the popular early characters made it to these jackets. At one time I had a Shivan, but it somehow slipped away.

They were originally offered to WOTC staffers, and some were offered as top prizes in regional tournaments. I don't know if they were ultimately offered through the WOTC stores or mail-order, or if they were ever issues as incentives through the wholesale and retail distribution chains.

I have also heard rumors that some of the same embroideries were put on leather jackets, although I have never personally seen one.

Quite possibly. Size? I have no idea about value but maybe we could work something out.

Based upon this thread I went looking for my jacket. I can't find my Jester's Cap blue denim jacket, but found my black denim jacket that has an embroidered Nightmare on it. I found the following thread that gives a little info on how it was distributed:

I'll get pictures of it up later.

Man, you are the detective. Thanks much for the link. I got my nightmare jacket in Japan. The Minitor jacket I got at WotC and still have but the nightmare was for sure my favorate.

I don't know who has it now... but it was dumb of me to leave in on the back of my chair when I went to the bathroom......

Oh, that did not happen in Japan but in the USA.

The Nightmare jackets were definitely given out at the Alliance pre-release. (I was the tournament organizer for WotC for Northern California - I remember giving it out at my event.)

Additionally, the "cool trophy" was a crystal box with the Alliance logo engraved on the top. Maybe 6" wide x 3" tall x 4" deep. (It was a looong time ago. The actual size may vary!)

As for other jackets... I seem to remember a couple of them being sold at the Mirage pre-release in Atlanta GA. The same show that brought us the travel cups.

Best regards,

Rainsford

There are two different Nightmare jackets.

The one hanging in my closet is regular blue denim. Not sure where I got this one.

The one hanging in someones closet someplace that was taken off the back of a chair while I was in the bathroom was Black denim. I got it in Japan at the release of Magic in Japanese.

Were the ones given out at the pre-release linked above blue or black?

I got a black one- WOTC people came to Vilseck prior to a Pro Tour (Mainz) I think and they gave me/us backpacks with Jesters Cap/Jacket/Deck Holder pouch things... lots of product. Quality of materials vary. I think it was left overs/promo stuff and nice of them- Military League stuff arrived separately in the mail.

My nightmare jacket is black denim, either a small or a medium. I got it from a corporate honcho who was involved in early Hasbro negotiations. It fit me and not him! =D>
