Premier P9 Investment Piece From Magic The Gathering

Critically important MTG card which is incomparable in terms of rarity and market importance. 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 and sits atop the illustrious power 9. 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, the Black Lotus quickly became the holy-grail of the Alpha production and has sense became one of the most valuable cards in the market. What we have here is an exceptionally pretty, high-grade example which boasts incredible eye appeal throughout. Virtually centered 50/50 with dark black borders and rock-solid MINT edges. Shows high-gloss with excellent print and registration. Minimally touched corners largely prevents this card from grading higher. With a print run of just 1,100 of each rare card being produced, and the vast majority being played/damaged, there's simply not enough of these to ever satisfy the demand. 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. It's not hard to believe that this NM-MT+ copy will approach the $100,000 mark in the near future. A remarkably special fine art equivalent piece which comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Part of a brilliant run of Magic The Gathering examples on the auction block this month. One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 7th Auction of 2019.
