Iv been asking around for a while and have gotten every answer from $1-$100 and would really like to know if its worth keeping back or just another card box deal.

I have a 3rd edition Jandor's Saddlebags that the face of the card is pushed along the right side. I just wanted to know if misprinted MTG cards and worth anything or a commonly occurring thing.

Thanks for the help.

Its all in the collector. some may want it, some may not, and you'll get a different price everywhere.

Do you have a scanner or camera? I am mildly interested in it, and seeing what it looks like.

I have a foil Forced Worship that have a Scars of Mirrodin logo instead the of the new phyrexia one (in the text box)

I'm keeping it because I've been told by a guy at my local shop that one of his client frequently buy those kind of cards

But how much does it worth....good question !

From what I understand, the misprints that are guaranteed money are the ones where you can see another card on it... I have an interesting off-center Mana Leak, but it isn't off center enough to bring in any real cash...

This is JUST interesting and cool:

You could always try eBay. The funny thing about a collectible item like that is that it's literally worthless until someone applies a value to it that they're willing to pay. Then it becomes worth exactly that much. emoticon

Of course, that really does apply to all products and services, doesn't it?

The problem is EVERYONE knows it's only valuable if you want it to be so...I wish you the best of luck dumping it off and I hope you score big, but....I doubt it. I (personally) don't know anyone that wants any miscuts but there is the entire World (wide web). I've seen this question asked before, regarding miscuts, foreign, and foreign miscuts but usually in the end....Your' lucky to get foils off for face value.

My suggestion is keep it until you find someone looking for them, instead of searching. But hey what do I know, good luck and keep us updated on the sale!

To someone that has no idea what mtg is, it's not the cardboard it's printed on.
To someone that plays it has appeal.
But to a collector, or someone that alters cards (wants an easy way out), it's value is higher. But value is hard to pinpoint. It's wroth is what he, or she pays. Nothing else can change that.

Now a double printed big jace have would be held at 1.5-2x value, because how sought after he is already. Foil would crazy in how it's valued.

On a side note Jandor's Saddlebags was only printed in...

Seriously - $1-2, $3 if you're lucky. Whoever told you more than that is completely misinformed.
