Magic: The Gathering Trading Cards Dominate Bruneau and co Auction

Posted by Dinesh Kumar on March 9th, 2022

Magic: The Gathering (“MTG”) trading cards dominated the list of top lots in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Winter Comic, TCG (Trading Card Games) & Toy auction held February 26th, as the top five offerings – all MTG cards from 1993 – combined to bring a total of 3,750. The auction was held online as well as in Bruneau & Co’s gallery located in Cranston.

Soaring to the winner’s circle was a rare and highly desirable Magic: The Gathering Beta Black Lotus card, graded CGC 9 Mint, a Holy Grail item for MTG collectors. It sold within estimate for ,000. The card is revered as the most powerful of the Power Nine and is idolized for its fast mana acceleration during play. It’s also famous for the elegant artwork by Christopher Rush.

“It was a phenomenal sale, and an absolute pleasure to get to handle such a wonderful collection of Magic: The Gathering cards” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm’s Director of Pop Culture. “Original Alpha and Beta cards do not come out of the woodwork that often ungraded, especially Power Nine. It was certainly a Trading Card Game dominated day.”

Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers will host a Comic Books Auction on on Wednesday, March 23rd at 6 pm Eastern; an online-only Estates Fine Art & Antiques Auction on Monday, March 28th, also at 6 pm; and a Pop Culture / Comics Auction on Saturday, May 7th.
