Do you have Magic: The Gathering or Pokemon singles you would like to sell with us? Here's your comprehensive guide on how to do so!

Hi Everyone! Thank you for your interest in selling TCG Singles with us!

This post aims to serve as a comprehensive resource for all of your questions surrounding our TCG Single buying process, as well as some frequently asked questions! If you ever have more questions, please feel free to reach out to our card buyer, Soby, by email at [email protected] 

FAQ #1: Do you sell TCG singles?

Yes! We sell a variety of Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering singles both in-store and online on our TCGPlayer Pro Website! We have several binders that you can ask to look at including:

1. MTG Commanders (All legendary creatures that can be your commander)

2. MTG General (A collection of rare and mythic rare cards from a variety of sets)

3. MTG Art Cards (Art cards from a variety of recent MTG sets)

4. Pokemon General (A collection of EX, GX, V, VMAX, VSTAR, and more from recent sets!)

Can't find the card you want? Maybe we have it on our TCGPlayer Pro Website! Feel free to order online and choose our in-store pickup option, or have the cards shipped anywhere in the United States!

 

FAQ #2: Do you buy TCG singles?

Also yes! However, we only buy certain cards from both Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon. Our list of accepted cards is as follows: 

Pokemon: EX, GX, V, VMAX, VSTAR, Full Art (Pokemon and Trainer Cards), Secret Rare (Pokemon and Trainer Cards), Amazing Rare, Lv. X, BREAK, Prism Star and Promos. 

MTG: Rare, Mythic Rare, Legendary Creatures (incuding Planeswalkers that can be used as commanders)

If you're unsure about whether a card would be accepted, feel free to drop it off and our card buyer will let you know if we're interested in taking it!

 

FAQ #3: Is selling TCG singles free?

That depends on how many cards you want to sell! We only have one card buyer, and to ensure offers can be sent out in a timely manner we have to limit how many cards we take in per week. For larger card orders, we do charge a small service fee that is then reincorporated into your offer if you choose the store credit or points option. Our tiered fee system is as follows: 

1-25 Cards: "Small Drop Off" - No service fee

26-100 Cards: "Large Drop Off" - $5.00 service fee

100+ Cards: "Bulk Drop Off" - $15.00 service fee

We collect the service fee when you drop off your cards, so be prepared depending on how many you want to bring in!

 

FAQ #4: How does the selling process work?

The first thing to know is that our selling process is not a same-day process

Everything starts with dropoff! We have a limited number of drop off slots per week which refresh every Monday. We don't take reservations for these slots, so if we are unable to take your cards initially, check back early next week!

Depending on how many cards you bring in, we may have to charge you a service fee (see FAQ #3). Along with that we will take some basic contact information including your email and phone number. We will also go over our Terms and Conditions with you, and have you sign off on your understanding of them. We will also ask you to take the sleeves off of your cards if you have them. 

Before we send out an offer, our card buyer will check the condition of your cards and look up the market price for each one on TCGPlayer. These two data points impact how much we will offer you for each card. 

After drop off, it can take a up to a week (but usually only a few days) for our card buyer to email you with an offer. We will send you an offer in Cash, Store Credit, and Points, and you can choose which of those three options you prefer. Once you have made a decision, respond to your initial offer email telling the card buyer which option you would like. We need time to make your payment accessible, so you will be unable to retrieve your payment until you have received confirmation from us that it is ready.

After your initial offer email, we will give you three days to respond. If we haven't heard from you after those three days we will send you a second reminder. If we still haven't heard from you three days after your second reminder, we will issue a final reminder. If we still haven't heard from you three days after your final reminder, we will issue you store credit and make your cards available to sell

Once you accept your offer and receive confirmation that your payment is ready, you're free to come and collect it! Cash payouts over $20 will be issued via check, and store credit and point offers will be attached to a store account with your name on it.

 

FAQ #5: Are you a card grading service?

No! We are a small team, and due to staffing limitations we are unable to provide grading services (i.e., "how much would this card sell for?"). We ask you to please only drop off cards that you intend to sell to us. We fully understand that sometimes you simply don't want to accept the offer we send over, but if it continues happening regularly or we see a pattern developing, we reserve the right to refuse to accept cards from someone violating this policy. 

 

We love being able to buy cards from our customers and ensure that someone else can find enjoyment in them! If at any time you have other questions about our TCG singles buying process, please feel free to reach out!
