Author’s Note: Last time we talked, I was confessing my sins and announcing my departure from the game. As it turns out, it’s much harder to leave the game when you own a company that people have come to depend on. Before I get down to business, I’d like to take a moment to both thank you and update you. The support that my wife and I received after my announcement was both humbling and encouraging- the Magic community is awesome! (but you knew that already). My wife and I are better than we’ve ever been; God has been good to us and I’m thankful for the clarity that He’s brought to our lives. I could write articles, upon articles, about what we’re learning and the awesome things that we’ve experienced over the past few months, but I know that this isn’t the place. Let’s talk about why I’m really here.
I’m pleased to announce that Legit MTG has been purchased by Nate Laurence (owner of The Lotus Guardian). The paperwork has been signed and the inventory has been transferred.
I can honestly say that I’m excited about handing the torch over to Nate and his team. I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with them at shows over the last few years and I know that they will do right by the name. I’m sure that your mind is teeming with questions so let me start answering them.
Who is The Lotus Guardian?
These guys have been in the business for over 12 years. They operate out of a store in Owensboro, Kentucky, where they run tournaments for Magic and other games.
What will happen to legitmtg.com?
Both www.legitmtg.com and store.legitmtg.com will stay intact. The Lotus Guardian will become Legit MTG.
Will the new owners be keeping the free shipping on orders over $2?
Yes, they will continue to honor our free shipping policy.
What new things can we expect from the new owners?
One of the reasons that I selected these guys is that they bring a lot to the table for those who love Legit. Here are some things that you can expect in the future:
T-Shirts – I’ve already received an email from Cory on the new management team asking me for the logo so that they can get these made!
New Products – This will include board games, Magic sealed products and all kinds of other stuff that we haven’t offered in the past.
More Stock – One of the things that I was never happy with was our stock level. The combining inventories will be a big help in this area.
Will you (Medina) be involved in the new Legit MTG at all?
I’ll be sticking around for a couple of weeks to ensure a smooth transition. I’ve also agreed to do some consulting on an as-needed basis.
Stick around, there are exciting things on the horizon for Legit MTG.
