    Magic: The Gathering Black Lotus Alpha Edition BGS 9 Signed on Case by Artist (Wizards of the Coast, 1993). Alpha Black Lotus is the most coveted Magic the Gathering card ever created. For the August 5th 1993 Alpha release, only 1100 of these rare cards were created; making any examples at all extremely scarce. There are a total of only 209 Alpha Black Lotus cards BGS graded, and this remarkable card falls in the Top 50! It is one of only four graded in Quad++ BGS 9, and there are only 42 graded higher. This example was signed by the artist Christopher Rush on the case making it one of only a handful that are signed by the late artist. Don't miss a very rare opportunity to own "The King of Magic the Gathering Cards", and in an exceptional grade. The last recorded sale of a Quad++ BGS 9 Alpha Black Lotus was on April 24 2019 for $141,775.
