Plus, a rare Magic: The Gathering card from the Beta set realized over $7,000.

A rare Magic: The Gathering card certified by CGC Trading Cards® realized over $7,000 in a recent PWCC Weekly Auction. The Magic card was just one of many CGC-certified trading cards graded through the partnership between CGC Trading Cards and PWCC Marketplace that sold in November and December 2022.

Leading the CGC-certified cards across November and December’s auctions was a Volcanic Island, Magic: The Gathering (1993) Limited Edition (Beta) graded CGC 7.5. Volcanic Island is a Dual Land card — a card that allowed players to tap two kinds of lands — that is very popular in Commander and Vintage decks. For being nearly 30 years old, this example is still in great condition. It realized $7,500 on November 27.
