One of the things that I enjoy most about the N.Y.S.E. Opens is the giveaways. 

The giveaways at the first N.Y.S.E. Open were nuts, in large part due to the price on power being significantly lower than it is now.  The giveaways at the second N.Y.S.E. Open were pared back significantly, but there was still some cool stuff given out.

I pick up things all year long with the intention of giving them away in June.  At the moment, I've got prints from RK Post, playmats from Christopher Rush, Mark Poole, and other big events that had sweet mats.

Other than that, and the altered Karns (which will be a staple at all N.Y.S.E. Opens), is there anything (affordable) that you guys would like to see given away at future events?  Is there something I'm missing?

Cards are always an option, but maybe consider raiding etsy for ideas.

Not a ton of winners on the site, but some of them might make a fun giveaway.

For the nostalgia factor, you can't go wrong with buying some of those oversized 6x9 cards they used to have in card shops (Juzam, Lotus, Chaos Orb) and making something crafty out of them. Maybe make a deck box out of one? Or treat one (with laminate or some other material) to make it a playmat? Maybe fold and cut one into a wallet? That'd be pretty cool.

Have Greg and Jackie make some stuff,  Wink

I'm sad though, because I don't think I can make it this year.  New job, new baby, and a wedding in need to fly in for in July (I don't think I can make two trips that close together).  For various reasons, I am hoping that last one falls through and I can make it up there for this.

That being said, I think I will be good to go to Eternal Weekend (I'll have paid time off by then).  Very Happy

Wait What!?!

I see they are all sold out, but is SCG actually moving them at these prices?

On topic I'd like to see a custom token/counter with N.Y.S.E. III and the date.  Or make a hat pin similar to how WotC used to do the top8 pins.

Good thing Unlimited Loti can be bought on eBay for $2,500 still. Definitely not a good sign though for those saving up to get into the format.

Seconded. One of my favorite pieces of tournament memorabilia has always been this:


Something along these lines would be really really cool. I would imagine that you could probably get preorders to fund something like this if it were created.

Check their buy prices. They may not move much product at those high sell prices, but many argue that SCG's buy price sets the minimum sell price for everyone else. (Though those prices are only for NM)

I like the token idea, but also even cheap cards that are cool would be nice. I mean I wouldn't be upset to get a playset of Ichorids or Oath of Druids, sure I might not need them, but they're fun cards to own that aren't too hard to trade.

Edit: I just had an idea, if you can get someone to alter some new cards to have old frames that would be amazing, although potentially expensive. I can just imagine it now, old frame Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time, that would just be amazing, because I'm still hoping they print the Zen fetches as old frame Judge foils.

Man, now I really wish I bought that sleeve playable Lotus at the GP for 1.5k, the front looked ok but there was a weird imprint mark on the back.
