Not use sleeves? Why?
#44 - zeedeveel (05/03/2015) [-]
The sleeves we had back then got dirt specks easy and people thought they'd remember what dirt specks in what position would be the card they wanted. That paired with the fact that everyone just wanted big creatures led to few younger people caring about the artifacts and spells that would truly shape the cost of the early magic sets.

I understand early comics werent often preserved so mint quality ones are very hard to come by. But the question is why are cards, that are mass produced, worth so much money, especially if they cant be used? Card counterfeiting should be rampart if they could go for 500$ a piece.

The game is very popular amongst collectors, hence the rarest cards are very sought for and have very high value if they're rare enough. Some may also want such a hilariously unbalanced card because why not.

Some cards are very much the same. The card the anon above mentioned only had about 1100 copies printed. When Magic was a fledgling game, we were not allowed to play with sleeves as to avoid us marking the sleeves and most of us kept our decks in plain stacks with rubber bands. This could cause some obvious wear issues with banding being prevalent. There have been counterfeits to pop up over time though it is overwhelmingly hard to make a decent one and when you do, it's generally pretty easy to trace it back.

I remember being eight years old and people getting angry because they pulled Moxen, a series of five cards that are now worth maybe $6000 apiece and they'd literally just throw them away with the packs. About 3,300 of these were printed.

It's a matter of supply and demand and you very much could use these cards in some formats, just not those I participate in.

What the hell would mass produced card from a card game be worth any more then the paper they were printed on?

I call bullshit on that since only 10 in the Alpha set were printed and those are the rarest, going up to at least $10,000.
User avatar #54 - wilburn (05/03/2015) [-]
thats so not true, a few low 1000s were printed of the alpha run
#36 - zeedeveel (05/03/2015) [-]
There were about 1100 printed. The only thing I came to College with was my EDH deck. Sadly the power 9 is banned in EDH but I'm still a Judge and still have about $20,000 in cards. $5,000 of which are in this one deck.

Pic related, it's me a few seconds ago with 4 cards that equate to about $2000

Yyyyyyyyyyo.. I hear you sell shinies.
I caught a Shiny Gligar recently, haven't trained it worth a point.

I can get you the details later, but... would you wanna buy it?

Pokemon caught seldom sell for anything. They have to be bred for competitive battling before they're worth anything.
