This card comes from the Alpha card set, the first to be printed in Magic: The Gathering, which debuted in 1993. So it’s roughly two decades old, it’s signed by the artist (rare according to PWCC Auctions, who call it the best Black Lotus they have had the pleasure of auctioning).

“The brittle black border is free of damage with all four corners intact and in extraordinary condition,” he says. “The card is perfectly aligned on all sides with one of the cleanest surfaces we’ve ever seen. Free of stains or blemishes, with elegant color and accurate registration.”
