With all the Reserved List chatter of late, Sig turns introspective and examines his own history with the RL while making his case for its preservation.
Like 2017, 2020 has become the year of the Reserved List buyout. But just because a card disappears from the market doesn’t mean its price will forever be 10x it was before. This week, Sig dissects the buyout and highlights the data that creates the perceived price spikes.
This week, Sig builds upon his article series contrasting the stock market with the Magic card market. Not only does price and volume tracking become muddled with Magic cards, but so does the tracking of fear and manipulation!
People tend to consider Magic an alternate investment, comparing it to the stock market. But in reality there are some key differences between the two that everyone needs to consider before taking the plunge. This week Sig investigates these differences in a multi-part series.
2019 has been a tough year to be holding Old School cards, to put it mildly. As prices equilibrate, Sig is slowly making new acquisitions for his collection. Will this be a brighter year for card prices? Or will they continue to stagnate? This week, Sig shares his take.
At the start of 2019, Sig made three predictions for what the year may bring in MTG finance. Twelve months later, he reflects back on these predictions. The results may surprise you; with greater respect for the unknown, Sig looks ahead to 2020.
While it’s true the Old School market has been particularly soft this season, some vendors have overdone their price cutting. The result: many deals are out there on major retailer sites…if you know where to look and can catch a restock.
The glorious days of ABUGames trade credit arbitrage are over! Or are they? While ABUGames has been making significant changes to their grading system and pricing, there may still be deals out there if you know how to avoid the pitfalls.
In 2012, an interesting Twitter conversation motivated Sig to write a piece on the long-term investment viability of Magic. Looking back at his predictions, Sig is kicking himself as he witnesses the returns he missed by focusing on the stock market rather than the MTG market.
Two readers had valid questions about Sig’s ABUGames arbitrage article from last week. They inspired Sig to do a follow-up piece, where he talks about shipping costs and the brutally honest truth about motivations.
Despite being covered in the past, one of the most frequent questions in the QS Insider Discord is on how to exit ABUGames store credit. Sig is always evolving his strategy with ABUGames, and this week he provides specific updates on how he’s leveraging this buylist arbitrage.
It’s certainly a buyer’s market out there, as prices have pulled back significantly from their highs. But you’ve got to know where to hunt for deals. This week Sig shares three tips on how to find great deals from some of the largest vendors.
Last Friday Sig drove to MagicFest Indianapolis, where he experienced inconsistent results in trying to move some Old School cards. One vendor did come to the rescue, but Sig’s strategy going forward is going to be a little different.
