MTG Investment

MTG fans rejoice! Rudy of Alpha Investments and Vintage Magic’s Daniel Chang both have chosen to invest, collect and trade Magic the Gathering cards instead of cryptocurrencies, stocks, or other commodities. Why?

The success of the initial edition prompted a reissue later in 1993 (Unlimited Edition), along with expansions to the game. Arabian Nights was released as the first expansion in December 1993. New expansions and revisions of the base game (“Core Sets”) have since been released on a regular basis, amounting to four releases a year. Continue reading for more videos and information.
