MAGIC TRADE CHANGES COMING
Magic constitutes the greatest volume of traded-in used product in the gaming-hobby industry. Articles all over the web compare it to an unregulated stock market, experiencing drops and gains that would make Wall Street itself run in fear.
Recent trends have made it necessary for us to reassess our numbers. Starting in October we will be changing our percentages and we wanted to give you as much advance notice as possible.
Card for card trades remain the same. For each card traded in, you receive 60% for Magic cards in the store for other value cards (does not apply to bulk commons, uncommons and lands).
Commons and Uncommons will also stay at 2 for 1—for every 2 commons you trade in, you may take any other common in the commons boxes; similarly for every 2 uncommons you trade in, you may take any other uncommon in the commons boxes. We do not price out these cards individually, although any common or uncommon that exceeds a dollar is put into the “value card binders” and treated like a rare card.
For store credit, 45% of the value of cards traded in can be applied to your account to spend on product. And finally, for cash, 30% of the value of cards traded in will be paid out in cash.
Currently we are closed to buying cards. We do this on occasion to catch up on work loads or if we’re at our budget for buying. So please check back with us on a monthly basis.
All numbers are rounded off to the nearest dollar when assessing how much credit or cash is received.
