We've printed a lot of Magic cards. 25 years of booster packs, starter decks, Planeswalker Decks, Duel Decks, intro packs, From the Vaults, event decks, Commander decks, anthologies, boxed sets, Prerelease packs, preconstructed decks, and whatever the heck Planechase is—well, that's a lot of things.

But since 2008, we've got some really great, really accurate numbers up through 2016. Eight years out of 25 may not be the whole picture, but it's a time when Magic grew by leaps and bounds, when the game's popularity was unprecedented, and when we made a whole lot of Magic cards.
