← Scryfall FAQs / General Why are some images blurry or placeholders?

Magic has had a very long and involved history, as far as tabletop games go. Many Magic promotional cards and localized cards have received very limited print runs, especially if the card was printed before 2001. Finding a high-quality scan of each Magic card is an ongoing task for the Scryfall team. Often, in order to have any image, we upload a low-quality or cropped version of the card first.
