Give and Let Give #28: 7/18 - 7/24


Another week full of goodies! Unfortunately, we didn't have any Unlimited or Beta cards traded, just the pair of LIMITED EDITION ALPHA cards coming from Canada!

So why is the top trade this week good?

Well... it's not... in fact it doesn't really see play anywhere. It's only in 31 of 286,016 decks on EDH Rec. As we all know, the collectability of any Alpha card is extremely high, and the reason why this one landed some serious PucaPoints.

There were 6 printings all coming before 1995 with a current point range (as of this article) between 54 and 72,099. Revised being the cheapest and Alpha being the most expensive. Looking overall at the value of Alpha cards these days is quite daunting. This one is for all you collectors out there!
