Fifth Edition Misprints

Post by OGB » Mon Mar 29, 2010 2:19 pm

Anyone have an idea on the value of this? It's a Glasses of Urza that has the front and back of the card printed on the same side, and the back is completely white.

I know of 7 others that exist, including Fyndhorn Elder, Azure Drake, Tawnos' Weaponry, Instill Energy, Skull Catapault and Killer Bees. All uncommons from Fifth Edition.

I own 3-4 of these (all Uncommons from 5th edition, confirmed) and have always seen them sell or trade for about $125-150.

Incidentally, I might be interested in boosting that collection too :-P

It appears that one sheet of these cards was printed, so there were presumably 121 of these misprints.

I currently have:
COP: Artifact
Wooden Sphere
Fellwar Stone
Ashes to Ashes
Power Sink
Mind Bomb
Fountain of Youth
Abyssal Specter
Keldon Warlord
Bog Wraith
Karma
Desert Twister
Wall of Brambles
Wall of Fire
Knight of Stromgald
Pyrotechnics
Radjan Spirit
Craw Giant
Glacial Wall
Goblin Artillery
Crystal Rod
Lifetap
Svyelunite Temple
Dwarven Ruins
Sacred Boon
Icatian Phalanx
Carrion Ants
Mind Warp

...and at least 4-5 others that I can't seem to locate right now.

I would say that the average price right now is in the $125-150+ range, depending on the particular card.

Thanks ende73.

Perhaps the idee with 1 sheet of U (sk1) is still alive. For sure exist 2 sheets with U: 121 cards on a sheet, but 132 U.

It is possible, that a sheet has 2 ore more equal cards.

Somebody knows the composition of the sheets ??

Please continue to annonce your cards on the forum.

I have eleven of them total. If anyone's curious I can post tomorrow which ones they are. It seems the misprinted sheet ended up almost entirely packaged into a single booster box. The guy who bought the box started selling them to raise money for something, and flooded the market really badly. A couple initial offers went for $150, but later fell into the $75-90 range as he had six or so of them at a time for auction.

I think the members of this site caught on pretty quickly to what was happening. Now that they are spread out among people who actually buy and value misprints I'd be surprised if I could pick up any more of these under $150 (if I can, please let me know what you have!).

If I recall correctly, the Wall of Stone was badly played and was offered for sale a couple years in advance of the others, so probably was not packaged with the same box. There may be a small handful more in the wild still, but then again they may have been lost in the mists of time.

I can confirm I purchased the played Wall of Stone a long time before the massive auction-bonanza you mentioned, so actually these could have 2 separate sources.
