Fundraising: Wizards of the Coast Auctions Uncut Magic: The Gathering Foil Sheets for Extra Life

Recommended Posts

As part of Wizards of the Coast's push for Extra Life 2019, they have unleashed a deluge of Magic: The Gathering products to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital. We talked earlier this week about Ponies: The Galloping, a limited run of special My Little Pony cards and playmats bundled to raise money for Extra Life. However, Wizards of the Coast has a second fundraising initiative going on at the same time: An uncut foil sheet auction

 

When Magic: The Gathering produces cards to sell in game sections and stores across the world, those cards begin their journeys as part of a larger whole. The production facilities print the cards en mass as part of large sheets. Each sheet consists of 121 cards apiece. These sheets are then cut apart neatly into the individual cards with which Magic: The Gathering players are familiar. Uncut sheets don't often see the light of day, however the company has made a tradition of giving uncut card sheets on special occasions as prizes. 

 

For Extra Life 2019, Wizards of the Coast has created an auction benefiting Extra Life through eBay Charity. The fine folks at Magic: The Gathering have put up 22 uncut foil Magic card sheets for auction. 100% of what these auctions raise will be sent directly to Extra Life. Additionally, those who purchase the sheets can add a donation to the transaction.

Many of the uncut sheets are of rare or mythic foil cards - or even alternate-art versions of well-known cards. One of the highlights of the auction is a foil sheet of rare and mythic cards from New Phyrexia. Another highlight is a foil sheet from the Throne of Eldraine card set featuring alternate artwork. This represents a rare opportunity to get your hands on a piece of Magic: The Gathering memorabilia while also helping support sick and injured kids across the US and Canada, so check out the auction and make your bids! This opportunity might not come around again.

 

You can look through the entire selection of uncut card sheets on the eBay for Charity website. The auction began on October 23 and will run until November 2 at 11pm PT. 

 

Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!
