Remember when playing Magic: The Gathering what the thing to do? Right around the time that Pogs were huge, the kids at my elementary school were all about playing this fantasy card game. And since the mid-90’s, the popularity hasn’t really died down, with tournaments still going on and a healthy card collecting community on eBay. I don’t really remember what even happened to my collection of cards, but most likely, it’s in the same situation as this Japanese dude and his mom – buried in a box at home.
Over the weekend, a seller on Yahoo Auctions Japan by the name of LionKenzo 2003 was cleaning out her son’s room and found his collection of Magic cards. She figured, if he left them behind, they were fair game to get rid of.
