Since being designed by Christopher Rush in the early 90s, the Black Lotus has risen to a significant status as being the most prominent and coveted magic card to ever be created. This card is visually appealing to even the most novice of investors with its mesmerizing color, majestic surfaces and impeccable fine art equivalent illustration. Though beyond its natural beauty, the Black Lotus is a tremendously powerful and important card to own and sits atop the illustrious power 9. Former professional player Zvi Mowshowitz has declared the Black Lotus as the best artifact of all-time and makes every deck simply better with this card in it. Due to its immense power, the Black Lotus quickly became the holy-grail of the Alpha production and has sense became one of the most valuable cards in the market. What we have here is an exceptionally pretty, high-grade example which boasts incredible eye appeal throughout. Virtually centered 50/50 with dark black borders and rock-solid MINT edges. Shows high-gloss with excellent print and registration. Minimally touched corners largely prevents this card from grading higher. With a print run of just 1,100 of each rare card being produced, and the vast majority being played/damaged, there's simply not enough of these to ever satisfy the demand. As the MTG market continues to mature, the Black Lotus remains atop all others and continues to yield some of the highest returns the market has ever seen. It's not hard to believe that this NM-MT+ copy will approach the $100,000 mark in the near future. A remarkably special fine art equivalent piece which comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Part of a brilliant run of Magic The Gathering examples on the auction block this month. One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 7th Auction of 2019.

Feb, 2018 Top 5% Eye appeal greatly affects market value. Since 2015 we at PWCC have designated cards in the top 30% of the market with our Certified Eye Appeal Program. These cards have statistically sold at auction for 130%-200%+ of market average, depending on the eye appeal assessment rendered. The premium paid for cards in the top 30% of the eye appeal scale reveals an investment trend largely in its infancy. As a key investment variable, the eye appeal of a vintage trading card seems destined to have an increasingly significant impact on market value for the foreseeable future. Investors are encouraged to take notice of this important variable and invest accordingly.

Any buyer who does not pay for an item will be permanently blocked from bidding with PWCC and reported to eBay. Payment Options In addition to paying direct through eBay, PWCC is proud to offer several additional options to enable easier payment for auction winnings including short-term, zero interest payment plans, long-term, very low interest payment plans, and the option to consign-in-lieu of payment. Please contact PWCC with any questions about these payment options. PWCC Return Policy Our return policy is not a no-questions-asked return policy. Returns are only accepted if an item is misrepresented in the auction title, description, images, email, or phone communication. Buyer's remorse is not a valid reason for return. We strive to be reasonable in the event of a disagreement and ask that buyers afford us the same level of fairness. Misrepresentation of an auction item is exceedingly rare. We at PWCC are not professional graders so we trust in the reputation and opinion of 3rd party professional graders. Professional grading is subjective and different 3rd party graders will often disagree over the grading on a single card. Such a disagreement is not a justifiable reason for a return with PWCC. As a broker of graded trading cards, our responsibility is the accurate description and delivery of the item advertised; not to guarantee how a graded card will be assessed by different grading company. Any issue a buyer has with a card's professional grade should be addressed with the company that graded the card. Returned items must be received back in the condition they were received. Original shipping as well as return shipping will be refunded along with the full purchase price upon receiving back a returned item. Auction Integrity Safeguarding the integrity of bidding on our auctions is our highest priority. For the trading card marketplace to function effectively, the honesty and integrity of the participants must be ensured. Collectors deserve a bidding environment that is 100% legitimate and free from manipulation by the auction house, consignors, friends of consignors, friends of the auction house, or anyone else who seeks to exert artificial influence on the sale price. Bid Monitoring PWCC proactively monitors the behavior of bidders. We reserve the right to contact bidders who place bids outside the guidelines outlined below, and in some cases, we will choose to cancel bids and block bidders from participating in our auctions. All bid retractions and cancellations that violate eBay’s policy are reported daily to eBay. eBay reserves the right to enforce its policies. Any username with recurrent bid retractions across the eBay platform will be blocked from participating in further PWCC auctions. "String bidding", or placing a series of sequential bids at the minimum bid increment, can be perceived as bid manipulation because the practice allows a bidder to expose the maximum bid of another bidder without becoming the high bidder himself or herself. Any instances of string bidding will be flagged by our team. In cases of clear manipulation, string bids will be cancelled and offenders will be blocked. We ask that the bidding community assist us in identifying concerning bid behavior on any of our auctions. Please notify PWCC of any suspicious behavior by sending an email to our bid monitoring team. Contact information can be found on our website under the “Buyers” tab. Thank you for helping us ensure the integrity of the marketplace.
