Artist Proofs General Information

Post by cataclysm80 » Tue Jun 17, 2014 6:57 pm

While collecting my global sets, I've rounded up a few artist proofs. I'm considering adding artist proofs to my global sets, but wanted to make sure I had a good idea how big of a project that would actually be.

From what I understand, Artist Proofs exist for...
Beta/Collector's Edition
Antiquities
Revised
English Legends
English The Dark
Fallen Empires
Italian Unlimited Edition (white border 3rd/Revised)
English 4th
English Ice Age
Italian Ice Age
French Ice Age
English Chronicles
Italian 4th
Spanish Ice Age
Portuguese Ice Age
English Homelands
Traditional Chinese 4th
Japanese 4th black border
English Mirage
English Visions
English 5th
English Weatherlight
English Portal
English Tempest
English Stronghold
English Portal Second Age
English Exodus
Unglued
English Urza's Saga
English Urza's Legacy
English 6th
English Urza's Destiny
Starter 1999
English Mercadian Masques
English Nemesis
English Prophecy
English Invasion
Beatdown
Etc...


Did I miss Any?
Did they make Artist Proofs for Portuguese 4th?
Are they still making artist proof for the new stuff that comes out? Everything?

Thanks!

Hi Tav

No Portuguese 4th Artist Proof. Yes, new Artist Proof exists for New stuff, but I can't help on those to tell you from which sets, as I don't collect them.

Have you considered contacting the artists for the APs of cards from special releases such as Duel Decks, Multiplayer sets (Commander, Archenemy), etc?

As far as I have seen from Artists at GPs, they only have APs from the regular sets (core and expansion), not promo or special releases. but I could be wrong. As an example, I asked Aleksi Briclot if he had gotten APs for the Jace HPB promo, and he had not. I also have not seen APs for promos, and I have asked (again, Aleksi regarding Chandra's Phoenix M12 BAB), although the artists have the actual promos for sale/signature at their events.

I asked Lucas Graciano, whether he has APs of his misprinted Grave Titan Promo.
He told me, the artists get just regular copies of promo cards for free , which are not different from the general promo cards. So there are no APs for Promos, unless you get them from the artist in person and keep it in mind. But thats just for your personal entertainment and has no extra value.

I have several promos I have gotten signed by the artists while attending GPs. I also got a Jester's Cap (FTV). all are the regular versions.

Sorry, long-winded and meandering comment that should have been succinct like yours, Gunnar :-P

I was informed by the artists (that I have been able to ask) that they do not get token or emblem artist proofs, either. I got an Elspeth (Theros) AP signed by Eric Deschamps, but he did not get APs for either Venser or Koth (Venser Vs Koth Duel Deck). and he had sold out of the Tamiyo AP. Franz Vohwinkel was kind enough to sign a Tuktuk token I had brought to GP San Diego 2011.

Hi Clay

This a wrong statement, AP exist for 6 different Promos to my knowledge, I don't know if others exist:

Kird Ape, Jester's Cap and Rathi Dragon for Oversized Ninth Edition Box Topper Cards:

not wrong, it is true that I haven't seen them. I didn't say they didn't exist. I was just not aware of their existence, and hadn't been able to get any from any artists at GPs as they had not received any.
