This week I’m going to take a short break from the Demand Matrix concept while I work on some refinements to the calculations and add in some additional data points. I’m going to focus in on some of the other results I’ve gleaned from my obsessive collection of sales and pricing data. Why do I […]

We’re almost done! After the 5 colors of rares, a whole article on the mythic rares, and almost a week straight of reviewing the 2011 Core Set, we finally conclude the review series with a discussion of artifacts and some choice uncommons. Considering Scars of Mirrodin is on the horizon, the artifacts are sure to cause a lot of buzz!
Ebay is the primary way to dispose of excess Magic cards; it generates enormous traffic, is relatively safe to sell through, and it allows for easy visual displays of your items. The bidding mechanism of Ebay gets buyers emotionally invested in cards, encouraging them to bid more and follow your items. This week, we will look at the major question of selling on Ebay: whether to use Buy-It-Now (BIN) or a traditional auction to sell your cards. Though the choice looks small, a good decision can make a difference of 20% or more on your sale.
Chris McNutt discusses his Demand Matrix concept further, showing some math that helps pin down a card’s “actual” value by using multiple different price sources. This is required theory reading only on DS!
Green got the best rare in the set and by far the most expensive one, but is Fauna Shaman all hype? Is Obstinate Baloth going to see play? How will Overwhelming Stampede effect token decks? All this, and more, can be yours. Just keep reading!

How is the value of a card determined? The short and simple answer is that it’s a combination of supply & demand, playability and hype. Even though this is absolutely true it doesn’t tell us anything. How do you accurately quantify hype, count up the times Jace, The Mind Sculptor is mentioned by Patrick Chapin […]
All good things must come to an end. Quiet Speculation has been slowly dwindling for some time now, as you have no doubt noticed. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is that I’ve been working on its successor: Doubling Season! Please read the “Welcome” letter, but I’ll give you the […]

by Kelly Reid Blue got some interesting mythic rares, but how did it do in the rare department? It got a number of mediocre reprints, but a few of the new rares are perking up a few ears. There’s a potential bargain with a mana cost-adjusted re-imagining of an old favorite, but beyond that, Blue […]
