Description:

The holy grail, historical Harry Potter TCG cards! Unknown of until recently. Part of now already one-of-a-kind "Pre-Release Beta Test-Play" set, originally made in 2 decks of 40 cards – used for play by „Wizards Of The Coast“ staff to see if the game was good enough and if it needed improvement before (in 2000) it hit shelves, before the Base Set. It was also preliminary used to "agree on a certain style of artworks" according to one of the HP TCG illustrators (before the movies came out) which were then shown to JK Rowling, a lot of which she accepted, but a lot of which she also refused cause they didn't fit the mood. With a lot of the illustrators, she met in person, after they had made so many sketches, most of which didn't even end up on actual cards. In average, every illustrator made at least 5-10 more spare sketches.
From August 2001 when the Base Set was released, somewhere to the end of 2001, Harry Potter (TCG) was in the top 3 best selling toys in the world (according to WotC sales manager for Europe in 2001/2002), before the kids identified the characters from the books with the ones from movies, so all this vintage artwork began to decay and the game eventually ended. If you wanna kick-off or put a cream on your Harry Potter TCG/artwork collection, this is an extremely cool way to do it, because rarities like this make (artwork) collections have more sense as they tell a story which sets you apart from others who might not come across this. Having bought this deck, my collection soared and it's an honor to have the cards which no one else could have, so I'm sharing the joy instead of keeping all 80 together :)
All the artworks (not caring about holos, foils and promos) on regular cards are really easy to obtain from decks and booster boxes, and it might cost you only up to 200$ (maybe not even that much...) to get all 500 different non-foil HP TCG cards. The other artworks can be found on stickers, albums, journals, calendars, posters and similar items. Takes time to find all, but these specific cards are not about time, they are about opportunity.As a gift, I promise you this - I'm creating the most complete database of HP artwork (even to the smallest doodles), made by that wave of artists from 2000 to 2004 (with Order of the Phoenix and those last WotC Pokemon waves, all this vintage artwork really died for good). All TCG, posters, paintings, sketches, albums, stickers, calendars, anything HP TCG artwork-related you can imagine, all that scanned in one zip file. So, if you need any reference, I'll be up for it very soon!
All of these test-play artworks were literally never used for any later officially released HP cards or any HP merchandise at all mentioned above, not ever, not in traces. A couple of them („Animal to Vapor“ and „Memory Obliteration Charm“) were even designed by artists who were not employed in the later HP TCG production – Magic the Gathering artist Quinton Hoover (R.I.P.)and children book illustrator Joanne Scribner.It's seen from airplane that these cards had a somewhat different feeling and touch at the beginning.
The cards were played 19 years ago (as they should be by the title :D), but are very charming and in excellent condition. No scratches, no damage whatsoever on any surface/back where pictures and text are as such, there is only some light whitening on edges. But again, kinda cool as they show some passion as the staff played them. The cards are of course all legit and original, the usual WOTC „rosette“ pattern being visible with help of a magnifier. I can also point you to the person I got them from. He was that 2000 Europe WOTC sales manager.
All of the cards have the same numbering in the bottom right, all of them also being marked as Rare (*) with the famous„Pokemon-style“ WOTC1st Edition stamp! That's another huge plus, because no other TCG had the same style ("Pokemon") 1st Edition stamp but Harry Potter!Lesson cards' illustrator(s) is/are unknown.
Cardback is different than the one on official cards. This cardback is purple with golden letters and snitch flying across, which quite resembles the first HP Sorcerer's Stone game!
Breaking this set up might be a blasphemy, but it's already done for good by selling over 50 cards from this deck (I kept over 20, one of each illustration), and it's okay to share this before my flat burns down :) A similar thing was done with 4 Magic the Gathering decks who had Harry Potter error cardbacks, they were almost all sold broken up as singles for 350$ for non-mint and 500-600$ for mint cards.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to have a piece of HP TCG history. Even the rarest HP items ever (like 1st edition 1st print of the 1st book) have bigger quantity than these cards. Even movie props do. To any HP collector in the world, you can show these cards as something really special and show off a bit :)


Since I sold an enormous quantity of cards from these deck, I have only two of each of these Lessons left. Since the most expensive Potter Promo cards go for 500$, pricing these at 30$ for Animal Lesson and 40$ for Charms Lesson (+5$ shipping) is below any criteria, so go ahead and snatch them :) They are actually the price of a Dumbledore holo card, very reasonable.
