A rare 1993 factory-sealed Magic: The Gathering Beta Edition starter deck, a copy of Marvel Comics X-Men #1 from 1963 graded CGC 5.0, and an estate-fresh collection of 73 1929 Kashin Publications R316 baseball cards, including Babe Ruth, will all come up for bid in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Fall Comic, TCG & Toy auction on Saturday, October 15th.

The 246-lot auction, at 10 am Eastern time, will be held online as well as in the Bruneau & Co. gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston. “After a series of single owner auctions, it’s exciting to be offering an array of comics, trading cards and toys,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm’s Director of Pop Culture. “I’m most excited to see the Magic Beta starter deck cross the block, a piece rarely found on the market and a first for us here.”

The factory-sealed 1993 Magic: The Gathering Beta Edition starter deck presents a rare opportunity for MTG collectors. After Wizards of the Coast experienced success with the Alpha edition in August 1993, it released Beta two months later. This box could contain a Black Lotus, Ancestral Recall, Timetwister, the Power 9, or Volcanic Island. So, keep it sealed or remove the wrap? That will be up to the winning bidder (est. $15,000-$25,000).

The copy of Marvel Comics X-Men #1 (Sept. 1963) graded CGC 5.0, features the origin and first appearance of the X-Men and Magneto. Per the CGC census, 205 copies of the book are graded 5.0 and 746 are graded higher. This one is expected to bring $10,000-$15,000.

“The comic and toy auctions always bring joy and happiness to the gallery, as the colors blend and make for a great display,” said Kevin Bruneau, the president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers and an auctioneer. “While this auction offers our usual selection of comics and cards, there’s a great mix of collectibles, too. It is not every day you see a large group of R316 baseball cards.”
