This. Looks. Mad suspicious. This person seems to have no idea what these cards are worth, hasn't looked into it, and is asking for waaaay too little. Also there are pieces of the P9 up here and this has been online for a month?

Thing is though, I had the serial number on that Tundra verified and it's real. I'm worried that this collection is stolen. Also there are valuables here from a bunch of different sets, like that MM Snappy and Chandra ToD which is suspicious since they claim the cards belonged to their father who was a collector.

I've called around some local card shops and no one has mentioned anything, but I'm also reminded of that shop in Mansfield Ohio that was robbed in April and I'm gonna call them tomorrow to see if any of these correspond to cards that were taken from them.

Some of these cards, esp. that Tundra have clear serial numbers from Beckett so they could be easier to track.

The number on the Tundra is: 0009517429

I'll also attach some more photos the seller has sent me.

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up and share a maaaad suspicious situation.

This is crossposted for maximum exposure. Mad shady shit herehio, or around this region?

My buddy in Iowa is looking at getting back into playing and I live in Milwaukee. I know there's Chicago tournaments, can anyone point me in the direction of that info (or any other Midwest Vintage)? Thanks!

@bobbyvictory Idk what the numbers were for legacy last year, but there were 711 in the main event this year and I know that side events attendance was up significantly (having worked them 3 of 4 days). I'm pretty sure all of the vintage side events were very well attended as well.

@sovarius I did deck checks on the 5ks on Sun, I believe there were 61 or 71 in the vintage and maybe 54 in the legacy. Vintage was 6 rds as was the legacy if I remember correctly.

@sovarius I don't believe so, but I saw a lot of cards, cool alters and shiny stuff the last 2 days lol

Judging, I saw plenty of shops and dredge, decent amount of BUG and a few oath and mentor/pyro decks. Should be fun tomorrow. I'm hoping after my shift ends at 6pm I can get some vintage games in with anyone, either a win a box or just friendlies, find me (Nate Becker) if you want! I'll also welcome legacy testing for Saturday.

I have successfully paid all of the bloody tolls to drive from MKE to Pitt (didn't realize it's $40+) and checked into the airbnb. Despite having 3 other people have life betray them, I am attending my first EW, even if I had to travel alone. I will do my best to make sides run smoothly for everyone and then destroy all of you on Saturday, ultimately failing to top 8 so I won't have judge schedule conflicts. 😉 I look forward to meeting all of you twitch "celebrities" and being able to jam real Magic with all of you, even if the "real Magic" will just be other side events, and I'll have a faux deck (I gots me a fat box of spaghetti monsters).
