The Gathering Alpha Starter Deck now for auction at Heritage
Heritage auctions, a Dallas, Texas-based auction house that primarily deals in comics, video games, collectible cards, and other similar collectibles, has put on another serious sire of an auction item. This time around, it’s a sealed starter deck from Magic: The Gathering‘s Alpha together. It’s true, the very first Magic the set still contains sealed items, and this one could be yours! Potential bidders have until Saturday, July 24 at 12:50 p.m. Central Time (or 1:50 p.m. Eastern Time) to bid on this piece of Magic the story.
An absolute relic from 1993, this starter deck is one of the greatest finds that Heritage Auctions has likely ever auctioned off when it comes to Magic go. According to the auction list for this item on the Heritage Auctions website:
This is it ladies and gentlemen. One of the best, Magic: The Gathering items we’ve never seen. This is a sealed Starter Deck from the Alpha Edition! We know this because it doesn’t have a barcode at the bottom of the pack. To print Beta editions, barcodes have been added to the bottom of each deck. While we had an Alpha Starter Deck in the last sale, unlike the last one, it’s pretty much pristine. The plastic seal is still perfectly intact and all corners of the box are intact. What can there be in there? A black lotus? A Mox? The legendary Timetwister? Any of the “Power 9” cards would be worth tens of thousands if not more. Of course, Heritage Auctions cannot know what is in the package, nor do we advocate opening that package. But it’s one of those times when a person dreams of possibilities, isn’t it? The deck has slightly dull corners, overall in excellent condition.
If you want to get hold of this extremely rare Magic: The Gathering starter deck, please remember that you have until Saturday, July 24 at 12:50 p.m. Central Time or 1:50 p.m. Eastern Time to do so.
