    I find it amazing that they still haven't figured out a way to reprint a Thunder Spirit that is functionally different based on +1/+1 or -1/-1 counters. E.g.:

    Not-Thunder Spirit
    Creature - Other creature type than Spirit
    Not-Thunder Spirit enters the battlefield with two +1/+1 counters on it.
    Flying, first strike
    0/0

    I'm pretty sure that if they really wanted to "solve" that problem, it could be done.

    Instead it's a nice, honest piece of nonsense to make MaRo look like a "good guy" in the Reserve List debate.

    Unfortunately it's a completely bullshit stance and makes zero logical sense, outside of Marketing and PR double-speak.

    Why does this matter? This booster is encased in a box, so to get it you need to first open the box? At that stage, it might as well have no wrapper (if the card itself wouldn't get destroyed then)

    Because people will no doubt try selling just the Box Topper packs alone.

    ... but the packaging explicitly says, "not for resale"! who would break such a good faith gesture from WOTC by selling this product on the open market?

    But actually, if the card is contained in a sealed box why does it need to be wrapped? Unless the intent is to have the cards sold after the box is opened?

    Pageantry. So all your friends can gather around and watch in awe as you slowly peal back the Wonka Bar to see the golden ticket.
    Like all those old completer/video game ads showing a half dozen kids losing their shit over vector graphics or whatever.

    I suppose it also gives those neckbeards with latex gloves another opportunity to post a video of them opening the pack on YouTube... no offense to latex gloves.

    P.s you haven't lived until you played the OG Star Wars game on an arcade cabinet.

    Maybe it's so that "mint" means they're still in the wrapper?

    Probably because there's no way to secure it in the box - the wrapper is to protect the card. Basically, a really really fancy sleeve.
