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 Beta 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'. Presented here is a truly special and all around brilliant specimen which lies within a highly coveted Beckett 9.5 holder. Boasting near perfect centering with keen edges and dark borders around. The surfaces are impeccable with no visual indentations or imperfections present. In addition, the color is extremely bright, the gloss is thick and the registration is precise. Simply put, this card is far too rare to ever satisfy the demand with a print run of just 3,300 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? We are truly elated to offer the preeminent Beta Black Lotus to the MTG and investment community, free of reserved. Good luck to all the bidders.
