This is a internal test card created by WOTC when trying out designs for the new m15 border/hologram. I belive this is the only one to make its way onto the Internet thusfar, as the person I acquired it from was very secretive. My tablet camera does not capture the hologram all that well, but it is slightly sunken into the card surface with the magic "M" design embossed on. I acquired it at origins this past weekend.

I'm 100% sure that it is the real deal. Genuine WOTC product. The person I acquired it from is very reliable.

The reason is that I will almost certainly end up selling it at some point, and because the item is unique, I do not want potential buyers to know what I paid

I don't play edh really, I just bought it because I thought the price was right for what it was. It is cool as hell also. Test card. The hologram also looks way cooler in person.

Hey neat! I have a half dozen of those! Let me see if I can get some pictures together.

Someone should repost these on r/magic or whatever, I'm not a ledditor. I think OP's intention by posting here was to alert the internet of the exisexistence of these anonymously

I've looked at it under magnification and everything is good but moreover I trust my source.

You retard, unless it's worthless and the only people who might buy it are other idiots, why would what you did or didn't pay for it mean anything?

>> No.40493726

That poster's confusing intent aside there's no point anyway. The people interested in this are people like those at magiclibraries and similar who want to catalogue and acquire stuff like this.

>> No.40494489

because that is human psychology 101. If you know i paid 10 dollars for something worth 100, you are likely to offer me a lower price than if you knew i paid 90 dollars for it.

Here's a Forest. It's a basic land from the game Magic. I paid $100 for it.

How much are you likely to give me for it?


>> No.40494611

depends on which forest. i would happily pay 100$ for certain forests.

So it depends on the Forest, and not how much I paid for it?

Point proven, class dismissed. I hope you enjoyed remedial basic thinking.

>> No.40494654

He either: paid a gew dollars for it and doesn't want people to know it's a piece of worthless cardboard, or paid WAY too much for a piece of worthless cardboard.

Either way, he's hoping to sell it for an absurd amount of times what he paid.

>> No.40494684

obviously you have never been in an negotiation before.
yes I'm obviously hoping to sell it for more than what I paid. It is no more "worthless" than any other expensive magic card.

I have been playing magic since i was 12 and got a 5th edition starter for my birthday. Im 27 now. I work in the games industry, buying and selling games professionally. It is through my connections in the industry that I was able to even get the opportunity to buy the card. Quit embarrassing yourself.

>> No.40495685


This is very important OP, does the cardboard has a blue core?

>> No.40495869

Jesus, dude, you either really got ripped off, or you really are this stupid about selling things.

Once a price is established, its value will stay around that area, unless circumstances change drastically, like all the other cards are destroyed, or you find out it's made from shitty paper that crumbles. So, if you paid $3k for it, you can expect its value to probably stay about the same. You can probably charge a little higher than that, but any fool can cross-reference and call you out on your pricing.

tl;dr You're a spineless coward; post what you paid faggot

>> No.40495904

there is no established market for a card that only 2-3 known copies exist and none have ever been sold except to me.

The established ballpark is what you paid for it

Precisely BECAUSE you over-invested in a stupid card that will lose its value if you so much as bend a corner a little, in which case kiss that investment goodbye forever

The inherent flaw in this is when people see little cards as legitimate investments

It's a test card it's not tournament legal they're all supposed to be destroyed it's purely a collector's item because it's rare.
If you just wanted to play with it you would buy a normal Gilded Lotus for like five bucks and not boast about it on /tg/

No one cares that much about a test print for Gilded Lotus. Except this one asshole who's showing it off to /tg/ and claiming he paid more than he did so he can hike the price even higher to "collectors" who want to waste large sums of money on slightly different variants of cards and pretend they're worth that much.

I'd want that Isperia, Ulamog, and Elesh.

>> No.40501575

Not OP, but that analogy is fucked in the head you retard. Basic Forests (the kind you're obviously referring to) are ubiquitous and have an extremely well-defined value on the secondary market.

Tell me, is that the case for the card OP got a hold of?

>> No.40501614

Ergo why he's unwilling to divulge it. You just plain out stated why the guy you're arguing against is objectively correct. Good job.

>> No.40501647

>With exactly zero demand
I think you don't understand what "collecting" means at all.

Yes, that's exactly how collecting extremely rare cards that aren't supposed to hit the market works, you genius.

>> No.40501797

If /tg/ is throwing this much of a retard tantrum over OP and his one card, I guess you'd all have an aneurysm over the guy in this video who isn't willing to show the darker parts of his collection:

(skip to 16:40 if you don't wanna watch the rest of the video)

Actually, I wouldn't even be surprised if OP is Greg Fenton. Either way, that's how collecting these kinds of cards work, kids.

Considering it could be something like the proposal card, it's really not that surprising.
