so i started playing magic in 2013 and never being around for the UN-sets i was excited and bought 2! I went in understanding that most cards i would get would be worth nothing. As i opened it i got Steamflogger Boss and it was foiled and i know this card has no use in any format because no contraptions are legal. I go to see on Starcity games its worth $200! i was shocked should i save this and see if it goes up or should i sell it off high.

It is expensive because it is rare. There is 1 steamflogger boss, per land sheet. The lands sell for like $30 in foil. And you have tons of those on a sheet but only 1 boss.

Sell it ASAP, and expect to go a fair bit lower? It is going to be a collectors item, not something people want to pimp out their decks generally.

Sell it asap even if you can't get the full price. You'll never use it and it's only for collectors. LeaPlath is right.

Non foil is 99 cents. The foiled are $100 at most stores over at TCGplayer. There is no way you can get someone to pay $100 for it. I would try to give someone a "good deal" around $50 now that the price is so inflated.

Sell, and do it now. If you can get anything more than $50 or so for it you are making out.
