Some of the most expensive cards come from an Edition called “Summer Magic”. But why is that?
Revised Edition, the successor to Unlimited, had a number of problems.
Therefore, they decided to release a complete makeover – Unlimited. The new print run was code-named “Edgar”. Nowadays, mostly and well known as Summer Magic. Sadly, this new print run was also full of mistakes. Before noticing them, about 40 booster boxes were shipped to retailers.
These booster packs contained not only green cards whose text was almost unreadable, but also some of the most expensive misprints in Magic‘s history. What makes the set interesting to collectors is the sheer rarity and scarcity of those cards. The consensus among the community is, that Rares from Summer Magic are rarer than Rares from Alpha, Magics first edition.
Now you are maybe asking yourself how to identify those legendary Summer Magic cards? Well, that is actually not that hard.
The card has to be white bordered and in English. The Copyright text has to be in white, in one line and contain the year 1994.
