  1. Julie also mentioned that her Clone from Alpha sold privately for $120K at some point (she didn't sell it for that, a private collector did). Not proof, but strong evidence of a 6 figure sale.
  2. Jace finishes at $28,100 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/-/153128320251?nordt=true&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l10137 Gideon up next only at $8,600 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/GIDEON-OF-THE-TRIALS-ORIGINAL-PAINTING-by-TERESE-NIELSEN-MTG-Magic-SDCC/153137282750?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D716826f805fc41e1a857fa51d8fe21ad%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D153137282750%26itm%3D153137282750&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A45d53e3a-9ef1-11e8-b473-74dbd18010f0|parentrq%3A332def211650a9e1c7327c57fffcb6c5|iid%3A1
  3. Walking Dead #1 cover? Maybe a REAL nice early Spawn cover?
  4.

  5. As much as the power of the card matters in MtG art, there actually ARE other factors. I own a bunch of pieces that are blah cards, but beautiful art, and not cheap to purchase. The name of the artist DOES matter too. As does nostalgia.
  6. It's definitely higher than I thought it would go for, but it is a nicer Phil piece. The Foglios definitely have a big following outside of MTG, and their pieces were all sold long ago, so they are very rare to come up for auction. Also, bitcoin.
  7. But she's evolved as an artist a LOT since then. The art on the original Force of Will would be mostly forgettable on a non-iconic card. The arts for these Planeswalkers are really amazing, and traditionally painted PWer art is few and far between, adding another premium.
  8. I wouldn't say that Force of Will has anything to do with this. Terese has a very distinct style that is really appealing to a lot of collectors. I would love to own a Nielsen, but in general her cards don't fit my collection, or are out of my price range.
  9. A far larger, better drawn/painted, and higher power level card for less than a third of the price. Nostalgia is a hell of a drug.
  10. Final hammer price on Shaharazad $72K. https://comics.ha.com/itm/original-comic-art/kaja-foglio-magic-the-gathering-arabian-nights-shahrazad-card-painting-original-art-and-card-wizards-of-the-c-total-2-items-/a/121829-14061.s?ic4=GalleryView-ShortDescription-071515
  11. Meanwhile I bought another Baga from the same set for $1550 the same week (and I like the art more!)
  12. $40K seems reasonable to me, $80K seems unlikely, but also wouldn't really surprise me.
  13. Final hammer price on Arcades Sabboth was $30K (exactly the reserve).
  14. Juzam Djinn is now worth $1200 by itself.
  15. That is probably a top 10 card from the set. Picking up something like Ghazban Ogre or Fishliver Oil would probably only run you $3-10K (hard to say since I've never seen ANY Arabian Nights card art sell).
