Rare ‘Magic: The Gathering’ Card Goes On Sale For $100,000

A rare Black Lotus card from Magic: The Gathering just hit the market with an asking price of $100,000.

According to ComicBook.com, the card is being sold by Pristine Comics. The card is currently up for sale on the store’s website.

The Black Lotus card was only printed during the earliest Magic sets which makes it an extremely rare card. This particular card is also in incredible condition. According to Pristine Comics, it is the only Black Lotus to receive a 10 rating from the Beckett Grading Service.

The store writes: “It Cannot Be Under-Estimated How Difficult It Is For A Card To Achieve This High Of A Grade… There Is Only One BGS-10 Beta Black Lotus.  There Are 34 PSA-10’s Of This Same Card.”

If you’ve never played Magic: The Gathering you may have a hard time understanding the hype surrounding this card. Thankfully, we have a video to show you just how excited you should be.

Earlier this month a card collector opened up an early Alpha Magic set and was shocked to discover a Black Lotus inside. (Scroll to the eight minute mark to see true happiness.)

ComicBook.com notes that the card in the video is actually more rare than the one being offered by Pristine Comics. It’s unlikely that the YouTube card features $100,000, however, because it’s not in as good of condition.
