This is the difference between the sale price and resell price. It does not take into account any costs associated with reselling. Things like shipping, storage fees, if applicable.
Sale Price. The price at which the reseller purchased the item.
Resell Price. The price at which the reseller sold the item.

Perhaps the most controversial trading card release of all time, this box was heavily criticized by the MTG community for being offensively overpriced. This led many to abstain from its sale, making it quite rare.

At 9 AM PST, boxes went live for purchase on MTG’s web store. There was a digital queue-based system for purchase initially, but after 10 minutes there was no wait time to access the sale. There was a limit of 5 boxes per order.

Sold Out

Sold Out? Who knows.

After 39 minutes, the product appeared to be sold out. Notably, MTG’s Twitter account said the sale had “concluded”, rather than say the product was sold out, leading many in the community to speculate that they had pulled the sale to save face from poor sales. However, this has never been confirmed.


Last Minute FOMO Buyers

The day after the sale concluded, a number of confirmed orders sold on eBay for at and around the $1,900 mark, as speculators that were sidelined during the sale got FOMO.
