Guys few Weeks before, I wanted to buy 2 Old Man of the Sea cards - Price about 50 Euros. Today I saw this card again but for 150 Euro and more... what the hell is going on? Can someone explain me this? Do you think the price will fall again soon? Thank you!

It'll probably fall a bit because $250 is way too high for a card that rarely sees play. I'd guess it'll fall back to like $100-$120. However, it's a reserved list card and like all of them subject to random buyouts, which is what happened. It's too bad but there's not much to do. Each time a janky reserved list card gets bought out it gains like somewhere between $20-$50 of permanent value, even if demand is low.

As others have mentioned we are in the middle of a buyout on cards from just about every set from the early nineties. It sucks and creates a real high inflation but they happen. This buyout is larger than most so it may take a while but the value will start to go down as the people buying them out sell them off.

Sorry but you will wait until Wizards actually reprint Arabian Nights before these cards will drop in price....This was a major buyout that has collectors scrambling to finish collections. (And yeah, I know- Reserved List yada yada)

My only regret is that 6 months ago I sold my only Elephant Graveyard for thirty bucks :/
