Magic the Gathering

Do you have Magic cards in a closet taking up space that you don’t want anymore?  Bring them to us!

We are happy to buy sorted and unsorted Magic: The Gathering collections!  Here is how the process works:

Bring us your collection with Rares, Mythics, and other expensive cards sorted out, and we will check their prices.   We will buy any card worth $3 or more for a percentage of what we will sell it for (our sell prices are the median price found on  For cards worth less than $3, we buy them for the following prices:

10¢ per card for Bulk Rares

25¢ per card for Bulk Mythics

$4 per 1000 cards of bulk Commons and Uncommons (basic lands not included)


If you do not want to sort out the rares and mythics, that’s okay!  We will buy the whole collection at $4 per 1000 cards.  The offer we make will be higher, though, if you sort the rares and mythics out in advance!
