Ebay and ABUGames' auction series will begin on May 12 at 11PM Eastern Time (8PM PT), and will feature Magic cards from a variety of historic sets such as the original core sets, Arabian Nights, The Dark, and Legends. The condition of the cards are graded with the Beckett Grading System (BGS), so buyers will have the condifdence to bid for these cards.

The online retailer is also providing ways for players to preorder cards from the latest set, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths, which is already available digitally on Magic: The Gathering Arena and Magic Online. If you're looking forward to buy Ikoria Collector Booster Boxes, eBay will be selling them for roughly $200 starting May 11. This is a great deal since these types of boxes usually sell online for as much as $250 per box.
