Title Bio
Set contains 75 common, 95 uncommon, 117 rare, and 15 basic land (including 2 alternate image cards for each land type).

Because of the unique nature of Magic the Gathering: Limited Edition Alpha, as described on the Wizards of the Coast website (see below), CCL has chosen to list both the Alpha and Beta sets of Magic the Gathering as 1st Editions. This is denoted in the "Printing" field on the cards listed in these titles.

*Premiered at Origins '93 in July of that year, Magic: The Gathering; was first released to the general public on August 5, 1993. The "Alpha" set consisted of 295 cards. After the Alpha print run of 2.6 million cards, some corrections were made and the remaining 7.3 million cards were released as the "Beta" set (302 cards). *Source: wizards.com

The first printing of this set, commonly referred to as "Alpha", had black borders and heavily rounded corners. The second printing of this set, commonly referred to as "Beta", had black borders and noticeably less rounded corners consistent with later expansions.
