Rick, there's a buyer for your Black Lotus...
#1
"Hi everyone. I'm new to the game. I'm looking to acquire some rare cards. I am a collector of wine, art and other goods. Can someone give me some resources on collecting rare cards? Specifically I've been told black lotus cards are very valuable. Also has anyone had any insight on Hasbro's intention for the company?
Thanks, Martin"

This guy is Martin Shkreli. You may have heard of him Wink

Had not heard of the dude.  Don't know where his message came from.  Don't know if Diamond Cutter is toying with me, but the last Alpha Black Lotus went for $13,300, the current one on EBay is $19,000, the one before that $23,000, and a graded one before that, $30,000.  Betas are going around $10k. 

The collectable element of MTG is starting to pass the playability element.  So up until recently, cards were bought to increase the power of a deck.  Now it is starting to be collecting rare cards as in other card collections like baseball cards. 

I also have a complete set of dual lands, and an unopened (shrink wrapped) International Edition set: the full original 300 something cards all unplayed mint.

This is the guy who bought the only copy of a new Wu-Tang Clan album. He is pretty much Satan Incarnate, though.

I'm guessing Wu-Tang isn't the same as Wang Chung.  Probably a micro-aggression.

Not toying with you!

I don't think anybody would buy a new Wang Chung album.

What if there was an Alpha Black Lotus attached?

I'm not clear on Wu-Tang.  They made an album with just one copy?  Not an optimistic sales forecast.

No, they are a successful act. They created this one-only copy as a weird sort of gag. And then Satan himself bought it:

So I shouldn't sell to Satan?

Alright = anyone else with $19000.
