Magic: The Gathering ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ Card to Be Auctioned

‘All Hallow’s Eve,’ a rare and graded Magic: The Gathering card, has been put up for auction by Heritage Auctions. Legends is a Magic: The Gathering expansion set from 1994. Magic: The Gathering (MTG) is one of the world’s largest trading card games, operated by parent company Wizards of the Coast. Magic recently released their 30th anniversary collection.

The card was illustrated by the late Christopher Rush, who was the same artist that created Black Lotus, the most expensive card in the game. The Black Lotus regularly sells for hundreds of thousands of dollars, including a $800,000 Black Lotus card purchased by rapper Post Malone earlier this year. The All Hallow's Eve card references Halloween, making this auction very timely. The Heritage Auctions website has described the card in this way:

“Magic: The Gathering All Hallow's Eve Legends Edition BGS Trading Card Game NM-MT+ 8.5 (Wizards of the Coast, 1994). Legends was the third expansion set for Magic: The Gathering and was the first to bring some cards that took more than two colors to play. BGS awarded the following subgrades: centering 8.5, edges 9, corners 8, and surface 9.5. BGS has certified 36 copies earning a NM/MT+ 8.5 grade and 223 copies graded higher.”

At the time of this writing, bids have been placed and the auction has concluded. While this isn’t going to break any sales records like a Black Lotus might, it’s a nice nod to the spooky season leading up to Halloween and a sign of the continued interest in MTG cards.
