The record-setting auction was held on PWCC Marketplace and completed yesterday, topping the previous Alpha Black Lotus by $28,900. This particular card is the crown jewel of any MTG collection, and even included a signed case by deceased illustrator Christopher Rush.
According to PWCC Marketplace, roughly 1,000 copies are believed to be printed, with only six getting a perfect 10 grading. The most iconic card from Magic always draws attention when they go up for auction. A signed artist proof version of Black Lotus recently made news when rapper Post Malone purchased it for $800,000.
