Do you want to own a card from one of Magic’s oldest, most valuable sets, without spending an arm and a leg? Sig shares where to find the cheapest options.
Card Kingdom often has VG and EX ABU cards in stock, but rarely lesser expensive, G copies. This week Sig discusses why this happens, and proposes a solution.
After a brief lull, Sig has focused his attention on a financially strong portion of the Old School market: Alpha and Beta.
While many players look forward to the big Channel Fireball event in Las Vegas, others are excited about the ensuing price corrections that could follow.
This week Sig reexamines buylist prices for Alpha and Beta and notices Star City Games now has the best prices on an array of cards across all conditions.
It’s impossible to time the market perfectly. This can lead to a feeling of disappointment when watching a buylist constantly fluctuate. This week Sig shares his strategies–both financial and emotional–that help him buylist confidently in a volatile market.

Sig’s not sure, but it looks like certain pockets of Reserved List cards are on the rebound. This week, he takes a close look at the market and speculates as to why there may be movement in these key cards after a brief sell-off.
Last weekend, Sig received some very unfortunate news regarding an eBay sale he made of an Alpha card. It turns out, the card may have been clipped Beta. This begs the question: how can one detect the difference? This week Sig investigates.
It’s no secret: Alpha cards are very expensive now. There are just not very many copies to go around. But what about Beta? It’s print run is larger, but relative to the player base, it’s still tiny. This week Sig examines the Beta market and shares his thoughts on Beta’s likely price trajectory.
Nine years ago, Sig wrote his first article describing the collectibility of Alpha rares. At the time, he had no idea just how much the Alpha market could explode. This week, he revisits the topic, updating his view on the set and sharing tips on where to buy.
