Gold-Bordered Card Prices

Economics forum

I have several Gold-Bordered cards from Urza's Destiny, Nemesis, Urza's Saga, and Urza's Legacy. I want to know: how do you price them? I have looked at many websites and they only show (take Grim Monolith as an example) the actual price for the normal card, not the gold-bordered version. In my collection, the cards in question (all Gold-Bordered) are Grim Monolith, Masticore , Mishra's Helix , Phyrexian Colossus, Phyrexian Proccessor (USG), and Tangle Wire.

So I shop with Card Kingdom. It's a wee bit more expensive, but what's nice is they bundle all cards together and do one shipment instead of dozens. Saves on S&H.

But the other reason I use them is because unlike TCG Player who doesn't do a good job filtering cards from other sets, Card Kingdom does.

Here is the page for your Grim Monolith. You can click on the different qualities for the card from your set and it will give you a fair market value to establish a round-about price.

Hope this helps :)

I really do not think they hold much value. Maybe the GrimMonolith can be around 10 bucks, tops.

I am from europe and mtgcardmarket.eu has a lot of these in stock (see their price trend). 1 euro is a bit more than 1 dollar.

Thank you Boza and TypicalTimmy. I knew they were much cheaper than the original printings, but ten to eleven bucks isn't awful.

Yes, a general indicator is 1/10th of the price of the original card. BTW, if you play Canadian Highlander, gold-bordered cards are perfectly legal for use in that format. I paid 6 euro for my gold-bordered Force of Will and I am getting a lot of mileage out of it.

Boza good to know. I have recently started playing Canadian Highlander (I'm Canadian and I thought it'd be good idea to check it out).
