Have you ever wondered why the Black Lotus is considered to be the most expensive Magic: The Gathering card?
Rhystic Studies has released a compelling 30-minute video that explains why the Black Lotus is Magic's "crown jewel" and why it's selling for a fortune. The video talks about other extremely expensive items or Veblen goods (goods for which demand increases as the price increases, because of its exclusive nature and appeal as a status symbol) to make a point.
