4th Edition Alternate Starter Decks for Magic the Gathering


4th Edition (Alternate) Starter Deck
Click to enlarge

Contains 60 cards and rulebook. Being discovered in 1999 by Dan Bock, a former Pro Tour player, the Alternate Fourth (4th) Edition is a parallel print run of the standard Fourth Edition set. The cards had been printed in early 1995 in a first attempt to produce Magic cards on US soil by the United States Playing Card Corporation in Cincinnati. Due to a dispute between the two companies, the cards were never officially published, however, and the two companies discontinued their business relationship after a settlement was made at the American Arbitrary Society in 1996. The cards were scheduled for destruction, yet an unknown number were saved and somehow leaked into the public.The cards look very similar to standard Magic cards, but reveal some differences on closer inspection. Their card stock is thicker, their backside features a glossy finish, and their colors do not show the characteristic pattern of dots but are completely undiscernible. Furthermore, they have a special coating which prevents their colors from turning pale in sunlight. This coating also causes the cards to stay dark under ultraviolet light, also called black light, in contrast to standard Magic cards which start to glow. (www.magiclibrary.com) The total print run is unknown.
