Subgrades (10, 9.5, 9.5, 9.5) - Premier MTG Investment

Here we go! Up for bid this month is easily the finest Beta Black Lotus card we've brokered in our history and represents a world-class investment opportunity unique to the marketplace. The Black Lotus is the single most important MTG card ever printed and is widely considered the most valuable card ever to be released in a regular set. In fact, former professional player Zvi Mowshowitz has declared the Black Lotus as the best artifact of all-time and makes every deck simply better with this card in it. Due to its immense power, this card has been banned/restricted in all formats and is atop the coveted 'Power Nine' list. Designed by Christopher Rush, the Black Lotus is a truly remarkable piece of artwork which many believe to be an equivalent to a Picasso or Van Gogh painting. What we have here is one of the few high-grade examples still in existence with the offered example surpassing many other GEM MINT copies as it possesses a BGS 10 surface sub-grade; an incredibly rare and desired quality. Boasts exceptional eye appeal throughout with terrific centering, dark black borders and smooth edges around. The corners are seemingly untouched while the gloss is thick and the registration is precise. All told, we love this card and with a print run of just 3,300 of each rare card being produced, and the vast majority being played/damaged, there's simply no way to ever satisfy the demand for this premier MTG investment piece. A fine art equivalent which is sure to yield a tremendous return as the market continues to mature. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation.
