Description Extended Information
 
The only autographed Alpha Black lotus with a professionally graded condition of 10. This is the holy grail and exact specimen that has been discussed, sought after, and unequivocally known as The World's Most Valuable Magic: The Gathering Card .

Tastefully signed with a fine-line black pen, which is greatly preferred over the commonly used sharpie (a fat magic marker). Christopher Rush's autograph was inscribed to perfection as it does not obstruct the Lotus, the card's text, nor his initials printed on the artwork of the card. This encapsulated treasure has remained carefully stored within a resealable ultra-pro sleeve, placed within a non-abrasive case, and kept away from light of any kind (never left on display since fading incurred from lighting is irreversible).

Considering the exclusivity and high value, this is not an item that can be ordered through the shopping cart; arrangements must be made through email before the transaction can take place. Serious offers will be considered but there is no hurry to sell. This is an exclusive showpiece for the NeoStore and will only be sold for an offer that can be considered as exceptional as the item in this listing.

Autographed vs. non-autographed magic cards:
When artists autograph their own artwork, does that ruin the value of their painting? In the realm of art, an autograph from the original artist is not just a desirable and personal christening performed by the creator, their autograph substantiates the validity/authenticity of their work, and this same premise applies to magic cards.

Magic cards are ALL created by artists through their artwork, ergo, magic cards are literally works of art in the form of art prints. Autographed cards signed by the original artist or the creator of magic, Richard Garfield, virtually ALWAYS sell for a substantial premium over their non-autographed counterpart (assuming all other factors being equal, such as condition & edition). Another variable: Artists aren't immortal, at least not physically, and so it will eventually be impossible to track them down for a signing. Fact: > 99.99% of magic cards in existence are non-autographed, which makes the autographed card exceptionally rare in the macroscopic perspective.

12/12/2013 news update:
An Alpha Black Lotus with a grading of 9.5 sold at auction for $27,302 + $20 shipping on November 17th, 2013. The winning bidder had an eBay rating of 991 at the time and there were 38 bids placed by 14 unique bidders. This auction could have ended differently, but there was a retracted high bid in the amount of US $54,700.00 (Retracted: Nov-13-13 07:21:15 PS, refer to bottom of screenshot below).

Fact: There are at least three non-autographed BGS graded 9.5 Alpha Black Lotus listed publicly at this very moment (one currently held by Daniel Chang, another held by ABU Games, and the third sold in this auction). That does NOT mean that the population of BGS graded 9.5 Alpha Black Lotus are limited to just three, it's likely > 3 but within a single digit pop...makes you wonder what the only autographed Alpha Black Lotus with a grading of 10 could fetch at auction!

Made me win 100% of the time :) May 25, 2011
Reviewer: The Black Lotus Incarnate from Texas  
I bought this card a few months back, and as soon as I put it in my deck, I noticed a surge of power within myself. The card had unlocked something buried deep within, and it had allowed me to raise my game to a whole new level.

I went to my locals the following day, ready to show it off, but when I went to search for it in my deck, it was gone! I was scared, but thought I must have left it at home. I sat down to play against Darrel Fitcher, and when I drew my opening cards, on my hand was the picture of the Black Lotus. I could see my opponent's hand, and I could see every move he would make, every response he would make, and the best way to win the duel.

I obviously have not been able to use the card, I'm sad to say, but that is a small price to pay for having a Magic the Gathering aimbot. Thanks, Neostore!
