Whether you’ve been collecting and playing Magic: The Gathering since the release of the very first edition, or if you’ll soon be picking up the new Core Set 2020, you know that there’s something special about these sets of cards. In addition to the unique and beautiful artwork featured on each card, and the countless hours of enjoyment you get from playing the game, there’s also a monetary value inherent in Magic: The Gathering.
You might already be active in the card collecting arena and have a pretty decent collection of rare cards – perhaps you took great delight in winning a bidding war on eBay for the Sol Ring card. Or maybe you were lucky enough to score Mishra’s Workshop way back when you first started purchasing Magic: The Gathering.
But no matter how much mana you’ve got in your most powerful deck, it’s not enough to protect your cards and other valuable collectibles in the event of a natural disaster. In real life, there’s no counterspell you can cast to reverse the damaging effects of a fire, flood, or other cruel act of nature with the devious mission to destroy your most prized possessions.
Homeowners Insurance is Like the Crazed Goblin Card
At first, homeowners insurance sounds like a suitable protector for your valuables—after all, it’s supposed to provide coverage for everything in your home, right?
Unfortunately, if an incident occurs, you’ll quickly discover that homeowners insurance, just like the Crazed Goblin, doesn’t fare so well when it comes to providing proper coverage for your valuable Magic: The Gathering cards and collectibles.
That’s because homeowners insurance typically only offers the base cash value for collectible items, and not the current market value. Additionally, there might even be a limit on coverage, and certain losses may not be covered at all. So, just like the game, if you want to win you must master the rules.
