Subject: Son of Numbers Off the Deep End

The rarity of various cards by number of cards printed is interesting to
see. Note that card prices are based more on demand than they are on
pure rarity, so don’t expect an Alpha rare to be worth over 200 times a
Revised rare!

Numbers for Revised, Fourth, Ice Age and promo cards are guesses based on
almost no information. I think I’m in the ballpark, but don’t bet money
on it. Distribution between starters and boosters for The Gathering is
almost completely guesswork. Other numbers are from net postings and
such.
No ‘inside’ information was used to build these number.

** means set is still in print and the number will be larger based
on how long after the date of this posting

The numbers below are based on the following:

Magic: The Gathering:
Alpha 2.6 million cards 50% starter/50% booster
Beta 7.8 million cards 50% starter/50% booster
Unlimited 40 million cards 33% starter/67% booster
Revised 600 million cards 25% starter/75% booster
Fourth 400 million cards ** 33% starter/67% booster

Collector’s Sets: (Gold Borders)
United States 3 million cards 1 of each card per set
International 1.5 million cards 1 of each card per set

Expansions:
Arabian Nights 5 million cards
Antiquities 15 million cards
Legends 35 million cards
The Dark 62 million cards
Fallen Empires 360 million cards
Ice Age 200 million cards ** 33% starter/67% booster

Promotional Cards:
DragonCon 275,000 cards (estimated)
Arena 150,000 cards (estimated) **
Sewers of Estark 150,000 cards (estimated) **
Windseeker Centaur 100,000 cards (estimated) **
Giant Badger 100,000 cards (estimated) **
Mana Crypt 75,000 cards (estimated) **
Ice Age Promo 4,000,000 cards (all commons)

Jyhad:
Limited Edition 180 million cards 33% starter/67% booster

The Ice Age promo commons are: Aurochs, Balduvian Barbarians, Bone Shaman,
Chub Toad, Dire Wolves, Essence Flare, Flygja, Gaze of Pain, Gorilla Pack,
Norritt, Prismatic Ward, Scaled Wurm, Word of Undoing. Almost 50% of the
promo cards were Norritts.

The maximum number of complete sets in that could be made is a good way to
judge the printing size for a set. Here’s the info sorted to show which
sets
are theoretically most difficult to get a hold of:

Alpha 1,100 sets
Beta 3,200 sets
Limited 4,300 sets (Alpha+Beta mix)
Int. Collector’s 5,000 sets
Collector’s 10,000 sets
Unlimited 18,500 sets
Legends 19,500 sets
Arabian Nights 20,500 sets
Antiquities 31,000 sets
Jyhad 66,500 sets
Ice Age 101,000 sets **
The Dark 128,000 sets
Fourth 202,000 sets **
Revised 289,000 sets
Fallen Empires 744,000 sets
