As it turns out, the batch included one of Magic: The Gathering’s rarest cards; the Black Lotus. According to an info site about Magic: The Gathering cards, there are two versions of this card – a White Border version and a Black Border version. The latter is an insanely rare, insanely powerful card that could be worth up to $30,000-$50,000 dollars for the one card. This version, with the white border, is the Unlimited Edition and is less rare, but still is worth about $5,000, but could go for way more in the right circles.
With 5 days to go in the bidding, the auction was up to 601,000 Yen, which works out to be roughly $5,500. Which isn’t half bad.
Then the auction stopped.
