Alloha friends of fantastic entertainment,

First a note to our busy mods: Yeah, I know that there is already a thread on this topic. But that is
a) ancient (which otherwise doesn't bother me at all)
b) it was opened for the books (and I don't want to talk about the books).

So:

Dear friends of fantastic entertainment,

Who can still remember this excited feeling when the fingertips closed around the crackling plastic packaging and then opened it as carefully as possible?
Who can still remember the wonderful feeling of curiosity when you went in search of the rare cards?
Who still remembers the enthusiasm for the lovely illustrations?
Who still remembers the tactical thoughts that immediately emerged when one had the values ​​of the new achievements in mind?

Haaaaach yeahaaa ...

It's been a decade and a half since I owned the first boosters. At that time I was at the annual game fair in Essen and couldn't resist any longer. There had to be something to the little colorful pieces of cardboard that made hundreds of fans march through the halls with entire folders full of lovingly collected cards. There must be something fascinating about the fact that a few privileged displays enjoyed their new achievements. Crouching on the floor in a corner, framed by hundreds of freshly opened sachets. An enraptured grin on his face.
Something had to explain the value of some cards, which - well protected behind glass - were adorned with a price tag labeled with cool letters. This label had a dizzying price of 2000 (then still in DM). At least I can say of myself that I've seen it before: the legendary "Black Lotus" from the beta.

I was running late back then. The hype was already at its peak - if not exceeded.
But they still existed: the small, hidden shops somewhere in downtown Essen, where you could get new "stuff" at any time. And I did. As a result, I drew my little brother into my passion for collecting. Ironically, months earlier he had received his friend's discarded Commons and we - he, my father, I - had played with them without any prior knowledge of the rules.
I still remember the astonished expression on my brother's face (around ten at the time) when he tried to attack me with all his monsters, which I - after some arithmetic - with a confident "Do it!" quit when I let his monster hordes through without blocking, in order to be able to start the final blow with an evil grin.

Oh yeah ... a few years followed in which I pursued my passion for collecting. In retrospect, it can be considered lucky that as a student I had very few financial resources. Otherwise I would have bought empty the little hidden shops in downtown Essen. Or made the seller at the game fair happy.
So I only carried a few starters and boosters home with me and put the cards in the protective covers with almost religious zeal. With freshly washed fingers. Because - as I had read in the relevant fan magazine Kartefakt - the mint condition should be preserved.
Beautiful memories.
I still have three T-shirts that are adorned with the counter-arrow of the cards. Washed out gray, full of holes, useless, not beautiful to look at. But I would NEVER part with them. You have survived three moves and are always rummaged out when I feel like interrupting my nudism, which I usually practice in my own four walls.

What finally led to my renouncing the purchase of the colorful little pictures?
The new layout!
That was not possible at all!
What was Wizards of the Coast thinking? No idea. But the new tactic had ensured that I invested my hard-earned tutor salary on other things.

But they still exist: neatly clad in sleeves, sorted, loved and full of sentimental memories, around a thousand or maybe even two thousand cards are slumbering well-protected in drawer boxes.


It greets the currently sentimental
