Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers




Anyone who doubts the soaring popularity of Magic: The Gathering trading cards needs to look no further than Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ upcoming Winter Comic, TCG (Trading Card Games) & Toy auction slated for Saturday, February 26th, starting promptly at 10 am Eastern. The top five lots – all MTG cards – have a combined high estimate of $135,000. “This is certainly going to be an extravaganza for Magic: The Gathering collectors,” predicted Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm’s Director of Pop Culture “This is one of the best collections to surface in a long time. It’s also a first in a very long time that comics do not dominate the catalog. I can’t wait to see how many new bidders are attracted to the auction.” The sale, packed with 427 lots curated from across the country, will be held online as well as in Bruneau & Co.’s gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, R.I. Internet bidding will be facilitated by the popular platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Bidsquare.com, plus bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app ‘Bruneau & Co.’ on iTunes or GooglePlay. All five of the expected top lots are MTG cards from a single-owner Virginia collection and all are from 1993. Tip-top among these is a Magic: The Gathering Beta Black Lotus card, graded CGC 9 Mint, a Holy Grail item for MTG collectors (estimate: $40,000-$60,000). It’s idolized for its fast mana acceleration during play and is famous for its elegant artwork by Christopher Rush. To learn more, please visit www.bruneauandco.com.
