Premier MTG Investment - Just 0.5 Away From Mint 9

The preeminent magic card from the inaugural Alpha production. Since being designed by Christopher Rush in the early 90s, the Black Lotus has risen to a significant status as being the most prominent and coveted magic card to ever be created. This card is visually appealing to even the most novice of investors with its mesmerizing color, majestic surfaces and impeccable fine art equivalent illustration. Though beyond its natural beauty, the Black Lotus is a tremendously powerful and important card to own from the Alpha set. 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 part of the coveted 'Power Nine'. Offered here is one of the few, truly special high-grade Black Lotus examples that possess a pristine 50/50 centering sub-grade; an ultra-rare and desired trait. In addition, the card exhibits high-gloss with crisp edges and dark borders around. Simply put, this card is far too rare to ever satisfy the demand with a print run of just 1,100 of each rare card being produced. As the MTG market continues to mature, the Black Lotus remains atop all others and continues to yield some of the highest returns the market has ever seen. How long before the Fine Art community takes stock on the trends in magic cards? What will become of an investment piece like this when the trading card market elevates to awareness among traditional markets? All told, we are elated to offer this wonderful magic card to the investment community free of reserve. Good luck to all the bidders. Part of an impressive run of Magic The Gathering examples on the auction block this month. One of over 19,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2019.
