On Monday, June 1, 2020, the original ink for Brigitte Roka’s Secret Lair Lightning Bolt was sold all but instantaneously on the MTG Art Market for an electrifying $4,000.

Lightning Bolt by Brigitte Roka is a work of ink on watercolor paper, finished digitally for final card publication. It is one of four brand new Lightning Bolt cards commissioned for the “Mountain, Go” Secret Lair drop that is available tomorrow, June 4, 2020 for 24 hours only.

This is her first published Magic commission.

The work was offered on the MTG Art Market by Vorthos Mike acting as agent for the artist, beginning with a $1,000 opening bid ask alongside a Buy It Now option of $4,000, active only until the last 36 hours of the auction. The auction included both the original ink and a matching size 12” x 16” giclee print on high quality lustre paper, never to be printed again at this size. If the Buy It Now was elected, the sale would also include four artist proofs once available.

Two bids were placed at auction onset, but after only 18 minutes, the $4,000 buy it now option was elected, and the auction was over as fast as lightning strikes. The sale was put on hold to finalize payment with the new buyer, and confirmed complete on the afternoon of June 2, 2020. This Lightning Bolt was sold in a flash, and is off to its new home.
