Magic Card Set Symbols

Magic card set symbols

Unlike other types of cards people collect, Magic cards don’t have a unique number printed on them. This makes it hard to look them up online.

To look up your Magic cards you need to know the edition name (not printed on the card). Look for the set symbol (middle-right area of the card) and use the following table to look up the corresponding edition name.

TIP: Try typing in the latest copyright year to narrow down the list of possible symbols.
