The cards were part of a private collection and are made by Iron Crown Enterprises and cover the original Limited set of (1995) The Wizards, and the (1996 sets of) The Dragons & Dark Minions and finally some (1997) The Lidless Eye cards. I believe all of the cards are black-bordered. There are Rare cards along with common & Uncommon, w/some duplicates. These cards are all placed in Ultra-Pro 9 card sleeves. Just to be clear for everyone, there are about 35 ultra-pro sleeves, that are double-sided with cards that are in picture #1.None of these cards are in picture #2. All of the cards pictured in both pictures one and two. I could not get a good photo to show all of these cards together so I listed two main pictures. But 3000 is very conservative. I will respond to all questions as fast and accurately as I can. The Scan is of the actual cards that you will receive: it is not a promotional pic!
