This card comes from the 1993 “Alpha” print
run of the Magic the Gathering trading card game. This series consists of 295 cards.
Cards from this series are highly sought after by collectors. Due to age and the fact that players didn’t
really start using card sleeves to maintain their cards while playing until
around 1993/1994, these cards can be difficult to find in unplayed condition. Alpha cards are easy to discern from other Magic cards due to their larger rounded corners.

On PSA EX-5 cards, very minor rounding of the corners is becoming
evident. Surface wear or printing defects are more visible.
There may be minor chipping on edges. Loss of original gloss will be
more apparent. Focus of picture may be slightly out-of-register.
Several light scratches may be visible upon close inspection, but do
not detract from the appeal of the card. Card may show some
off-whiteness of borders. Centering must be 85/15 or better on the
front and 90/10 or better on the back.
This is currently registered in The Graded Gamer's PSA Set Registry and will be
transferred to the buyer upon confirmation of successful delivery.
