Magic The Gathering
I have, for many years, successfully avoided Magic the Gathering. I have always been aware of the game but never took an interest in it and didn't have any friends that actually played the game so I was never exposed to it. That changed about a month ago when my friend Travis came by the house one afternoon after purchasing a booster box. He is a longtime player, having played since the core M7 set was released. A long time I guess. I sat and watched him open booster packs, logging his cards into a website called deckbox.org until he pulled a card called Aggravated Assault. He was super stoked, I was confused. He continues opening booster packs (there was 36 packs in the booster box!) and along the way finds two more, I can't remember what he called them, legendaries or something. I ride with him to the local game store called Game On in Sylva, NC where he sold the 3 cards from his booster box to the guy behind the counter for $120! 3 cards! He turned around and bought another booster box with the $120! So I bought a M19 booster box, Guilds of Ravnica, Ravnica Allegiance and Dominaria fat packs, all the guild sets they had, a vehicle challenge deck, a couple of deck builders toolkits etc. If I only ever knew these cards were so valuable....., I have been logging my cards in on deckbox and have pulled a couple of good cards so far. The most valuable one I have found so far is a card called Tireless Tracker worth $9.98 as of this writing. And the game is actually fun to play. Travis has been teaching my wife and I how to play and I'm having fun with it. I have even went to one Friday Night Magic tournament so far and earned some Ravnica Weekend promo cards. Do any of y'all play!!? Does anyone have any old sets they are willing to sell or donate to a new player/collector?
