Hey guys I found 2 Dragons of Tarkir misprints in my collection. They came from the same booster box and was wondering if anyone else found one of these and could tell me if they're worth anything. The misprint is that the card has a holo-marking, but both cards are common. One is a dragon fodder and the other is evolving wilds. EDIT: nevermind these are promos from the pre-release.

Has anyone ever opened up a misprint before? I think I used to have a cephalid looter with the wizard subtype, but I can't find it in my collection anymore, so who knows.

It is likely that they are the promo versions of Dragon Fodder and Evolving Wilds from the DTK prerelease. If they say "Tarkir Dragonfury" down by the artist credit, that is where they're from.

Ahh that's right, that's where they're from. I forgot they were from the terrible promo giveaway, thanks.

I pulled a misprinted heavy mattock of all godawful things. It was off center, so the border was missing on one side and twice as thick on the other. I gave it to a friend who collects heavy mattocks as part of his birthday present.

MM2 was chockafull of miscuts. I have one that has the bottom edge of the full sheet with printer guides.

I also have a miscut foil Rhystic Study

A friend of mine pulled a miscut Kiora emblem out of a BFZ pack at the prerelease a while back. And by "miscut" I mean "was sliced in half and the top part of the card was missing". He still has it in his trade binder, but he was equal parts unhappy and bewildered about pulling that one.

Also pulled about a million hyper-saturated miscolored cards from Khans, but they seemed to have fixed that pretty quickly. Aside from that one situation, the cards from BFZ seem to be alright.

I've gotten my hands on quite a few misprints through random packs, but they are never anything anything I would think people would find of value. While some are just simple three-extra-layers-of-eyeliner kind of text issues, others are generally the miscut and poorly centred cards.

I used to have a few binder pages of Serendib Efreet's (the green bordered version), but I think that is one of the most commonly owned misprints ever made. I'll never forget the confusion when that set first game out and people were trying to figure out what was going on.

I traded for this beauty back in the day when Mercadian Masques was still on the shelves, we valued it the price of a regular foil common:

Haven't really opened any exceptional misprints myself.
