In comparison to graded cards, a Near Mint card should be around the quality of a BGS 9 or a PSA 9.
Magic the Gathering Beta Collector's Edition Sealed Gaming Gift Set. This sealed set has the original factory shrink wrap covering the box. Box does have a small ding on one of the lower corners. The ding is pictured here.
Released in 1993, the BETA COLLECTOR'S EDITION GIFT SET is an exact copy of the BETA Limited Set with the EXCEPTION of 3 things: 1) 61 Basic Lands were included to increase the set size from 302 to 363. 2) The cards have SQUARE corners, unlike most Magic cards that have rounded corners. 3) The back of the cards are GOLD-BORDERED and have "Collector's Edition" written on it. It is these last two exceptions that make these cards illegal to use in tournament play. However, due to its limited print-run only a few thousand sets were made!
This is a 363 card set including the following MINT cards: Ancestrall Recall, Black Lotus, Mox Emerald, Mox Jet, Mox Pearl, Mox Ruby, Mox Sapphire, Time Walk, Timetwister.
