Just curious, but how the hell can you tell the difference? I looked at the two individual cards side by side for like 5 minutes and could not make out one single difference. :?

My favorite T&T listing is for an item that I've seen some sellers throw in for free with larger lots:



Entry-level Cosmic Encounter



Where they get the idea that someone would be enough of a brain-donor to pay $134 for a common, not-even-that-good item ... well, I don't know. Maybe from their butts.

Right.  :roll:  These types of listings are the precise reason why TrollandToadstore and their bidding ID Renvohek are forever blocked from my auctions. I don't believe in taking advantage of anyone even if they would be dumb enough to pay over $13,000 for a freaking game card. That is downright criminal.

Heh, thats what is huh.  How the hell can you really tell though as you could very easily clip the scan of it to look like that and the listing itself doesnt even reference a difference as to whtehr or not it is the supposed more rare one.  Either way though, for over $13k, that mother f***er better be made of real platinum and diamonds for it to come to be anywhere close to that value, I don't care how "rare" it is.

Brian, all (well most) Magic cards have a small symbol to the bottom right of the picture. That typically tells what set it is from. the Summer Magic one has no symbol; the Arabian one has a scimitar.
The cards can indeed be counterfeited. I saw some very good fakes back when I collected them.

If that one sells for over $13 I might just try to start printing them myself. I mean Christ it has to be cheaper than $13k right.  :?

IIRC mine sold for $500 years ago, and that was quite high.

Damn Frank, maybe you should have hung on to it. Just think you could have sold it off to Troll and Toad now for $10K and they would still be in line for well over $3k in profit. :D  What a bunch of morons. :roll:

Yes the last couple can go for a bit, looks a bit high to me (not if I was selling my coppies though) They weren't printed in the US so you have to get em overseas...

I think I paid close to that or more from the copy I bought from burnie bros a while ago.

I also shelled out $600 for one once, but that came with a PoVQ.   :D

Well regardless....still a bit on the high side with the opening bid of $99.  I have noticed that this particular seller tends to put the opening bid on his auctions much higher than the average end price...especially on MERP items over the last three months.  Most of those auctions have run their course with no bidders.  A week later he has put them back up with considerably lower starting bids.
