Quote from WorstBandNameEverI don't think this is a smart way to spend your money. Invest in quicker return cards, things likethe Zen fetches when they were low were fantastic.
Also, people still play vintage and there are not many of these cards. Buying, just to sit on them, makes it harder for the people who use these cards.
I would guess that the vast majority of Lotuses and moxen out there are not in the hands of players. I have a full set, haven't been used in a year. My friend owns a store and has several moxen, havent been played with ages... Dan Bock has like a hundred Black Lotus, and I doubt he's got 100 vintage decks that see regular use. These are show pieces / trophies to players, not just to collectors.
