Created for the Magic: The Gathering 2013 Vintage Championship grand prize, and then later used in the Vintage Masters Magic Online set, Ancestral Recall is a legendary piece by celebrated fantasy artist Ryan Pancoast. Ancestral Recall has long been one of the most powerful cards in Magic, since its earliest printing in Alpha.

During the Magic: The Gathering art creation process, artists usually create a preliminary sketch of their idea for the direction of the artwork, and then forward this preliminary work to the art director of the project for approval. After the art director’s approval, the wheels are set in motion for the final artwork (traditional or digital) to be created. This preliminary artwork is a unique look in to what the artist originally envisioned for the piece, which sometimes changes before the final product takes shape. In this case you can see three different possible perspectives, in the initial planning stages of the card. This lot for sale includes the set of all three different perspective preliminary sketches for Ancestral Recall. Each sheet measures 8 1/2 x 11, with the sketches themselves measuring about 6 1/2 x 8 on each one.

Every piece of original artwork purchased from MTGKingpin includes a Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its authenticity and legitimacy as advertised. Most original artwork was purchased directly from the artist, and has a short chain of custody, and trackable provenance.
