Kird Ape (EMA) Artist Proof


There are 50 standard and 30 foil in this edition. White-backed artist proof cards are printed by Wizards of the Coast and are exclusively issued to the artist. The front of the card is identical to a regular Magic card and the back of the card is white/unprinted. The quantities issued to the artist changed through the years, see the product descriptions for more information.

Product Information


  • In the early years of Magic, random quantities of AP’s were issued to the artists. In later editions, the average amount was 50 for non-foil and 30 for foil. The aforementioned numbers were not always precise but close to that.
  • After several years of creating Magic art, Terese began signing and numbering the artist proofs. Again, the early sets were not numbered.
  • All AP’s do come signed. Most of the AP’s are signed with a black Sharpie. There is an occasional exception to that as a few of the AP’s remaining from very early editions were signed with a silver pen. Foil artist proofs are signed and numbered in gold.
  • Terese’s signature has evolved through the 20+ years that she started signing. If you are collecting some of her older cards that were signed at that time you will notice the evolution of a block-style signature to her current more fluid, circular signature.
  • Modern Masters was the first set wherein Terese was issued foil artist proofs.
  • Keep in mind some of the oldest cards have been around for a couple of decades and the white-back is not a sparkly, brilliant, white anymore.
  • With many of the sets, Terese signed the cards when she received them, so specific pen-colors and signature requests are not possible.
  • If you don’t see a card in the store that Terese had in a particular set, then it is sold out. Artist proof cards from 2018-2020 will be added soon.
