Description: Few cards in our market draw as much attention as the coveted Black Lotus. Even to sports card enthusiasts, certain cards rise from the non-sport/gaming card realm to emerge as world class investment pieces. Offered here is the holy-grail of Magic MTG cards, holding a certain lure and desirability that is completely unmatched. Printed as one of the Power Nine only in Alpha, Beta and Unlimited, this artifact can provide a free mana boost for any deck. It is restricted in vintage formats and banned in Legacy. Designed and illustrated by beloved artist Christopher Rush, the Black Lotus has since become the most valuable and important non-promotional MTG card ever printed, as well as becoming the poster child for the MTG brand. In fact, former professional player Zvi Mowshowitz has declared the Black Lotus as the best artifact of all-time. Offered here is by all counts the single finest Alpha Black Lotus we’ve had the pleasure of brokering and presents a unique opportunity for investors/hobbyists to obtain a museum worthy creation of one of the single finest blue-chips ever produced. Held within an exceptionally tough, low pop PSA 10 holder, boasting an overall cleanliness that is just not seen. The fragile black periphery is free of common chipping or wear with four untouched corners and undeniably GEM MINT card stock. The card is brilliantly aligned from all sides with some of the cleanest surfaces we’ve seen. Free of indentations or imperfections with elegant color and precise registration. What further excites this offering is that this irreplaceable piece is coupled with an on-case autograph from artist Christopher Rush; an unparalleled pairing which easily places this a true masterpiece example. All told, we love this card, not just for what it is but for what it represents. A museum worthy, fine-art equivalent, worthy of serious consideration from the most serious alternative investment class. Comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Good luck to all bidders. Please see the video highlight for more details. Part of a remarkable run of Magic The Gathering examples on the market this month. Released in 1993 by Wizards of the Coast, Magic The Gathering was established as the first trading card game in the market and quickly became one of the most populate alternate worlds.
