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 International Edition Sealed Gaming Gift Set. This sealed set has the original factory shrink wrap covering the box. The box has a small ding on one of the lower corners. The ding is visible in the photo 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 run-print (only 10,000 made of U.S. and 5,000 of the Int'l), these Collector's Edition Sets are almost as hard-to-find as the original BETA Set!
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.
