Or maybe it's in conjunction of that premium only unset card whose name I can't remember right now.
I honestly can't see people going nuts over this card all because of M25...?
Quote from Weebo »Quote from Stoogeslap »Look what happened today: Beta Camouflage went from a $4 card to a $58 card... yipes!!!No, it didn't. You really need to use more than a single source for your pricing information, especially when that source doesn't have reliable pricing data. TCGplayer market price, which reflects what people are actually paying for the card, is $6.70. There's a LP listing for $12, and numerous listings in worse condition in the $4 range. eBay sold listings from today alone have one NM at $20.05, LP at $12.68, VF at 3.29, and (most telling) an auction for LP that ended at $4.49. There are BIN for graded BGS 7.5 at $20 and BGS quad 9 at $50. The only place where Beta Camouflage could possibly be construed as being a $58 card is two listings on TCGplayer and the sites that use TCGplayer mid pricing data, like MTGStocks.
MTGStocks is a great site for tracking trends and being aware of price movement but it's a terrible site for reliable pricing data, especially during and after spikes regardless of what's causing the spike. It takes 30 seconds of research to determine that. Please try and think a little more critically about the information you're getting before you feed into the buyout hype.

That's more likely a reaction than a buyout. "Oh man, I'd better pick this up for my set now or I"ll never get it at a decent price!"
I'm about a dozen cards away from my UL set, and I'm certainly in that mindset.
