ALPHA Personal Incarnation BGS Graded 9.0 MTG (rarest card in all of Alpha)
Officially the rarest card in the entire Alpha set (see image of Beckett’s population chart in photos attached), here in MINT condition. This card is impossible to find in mint condition, because nearly every copy has big white print dots all over them. The Alpha print run was plagued with printing issues and the Personal Incarnation suffered the worst of these printing flaws. Any other BGS graded copy of this card will have an 8.0 surface at best. This particular copy is a rare gem from Alpha without any print dots and a stunning 9.5 surface grade. Beckett’s population report shows that 5 copies exist in 9.0 condition. Compare that to the 63 copies of the 9.0 Black Lotus (with an additional 41 copies available in 9.5 condition) and we quickly see exactly how rare the Personal Incarnation is in mint condition. Even with this stunningly low population report of only 5 units, it’s very likely that fewer physical copies exist, since graded cards are often removed from their case and resubmitted. This artificially inflates the population number each time the card is regraded. Also, cards (both graded and ungraded) are often lost, burned or destroyed as time passes and people experience hardships. This particular copy was saved from two massive wildfires in California in just the past couple of years alone, as an example of such events. A true gem for a patient collector and investor, since no new copies are likely to be found in flawless condition and without the infamous print dots. Especially after Beckett has now seen and graded a copy with a flawless surface. The bar has now been set very high for future copies that pass through Beckett’s hands. Power 9 come and go, but this beauty is the pride of my Alpha collection. I have never seen another copy in MINT condition in 5 years of searching. If you think that’s a high price to pay, take a peek at vintage comic book prices for comparison. There are far larger numbers of vintage comic books in circulation, which sell for higher sums, even when the condition is less than mint. Right now is an opportunity to acquire this irreplaceable piece of gaming history, in mint condition, from the inaugural set of the world’s best game, before it becomes forever unattainable.
