Only 37 BGS 9.5s - Rarest 9.5 Lotus Of All Core Sets

Among the best investments pieces in the market. 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. Offered here is a particularly special Black Lotus rendering from MTG's #2 core set. The '93 Unlimited issue was revolutionary in its time as it was the first MTG production run to feature a white bordered front and was officially titled something other than 'Magic The Gathering' when released. One of just thirty-seven GEM MINT copies, the Unlimited Black Lotus in BGS 9.5 is the rarest 9.5 Black Lotus of all core sets; including the Alpha and Beta issues. The card is just glowing and holds a quad+ subgrade assessment. Possesses mesmerizing white borders which surround a radiant Black Lotus flower illustration. The corners are completely untouched, the edges are razor sharp and the surfaces are pristine. Free of any visual indentations or other signs of circulation with thick gloss and precise registration. To put it simply, we love this card and the MTG brand. Like an exceedingly rare piece of beautiful art, this card will surely yield a fantastic return and should forever represent one of the safest investments in the market. We are proud to offer this world-class investment commodity to the Magic community, free of reserve. Comes highly recommended by PWCC.
