Non NM Cards Price Adjust Chart

All listed buy prices are for Near Mint versions of cards! We buy Slightly Played (SP), Moderately Played (MP), and Heavily Played (HP) versions of cards at the following rates: SP (85%), MP(70%) and HP (50%). Some cards the buy price may vary depends on our inventory and requirement.


NM/M = "Near Mint/Mint" (Cards in Near Mint/Mint condition show minimal to no wear from shuffling or general play. A card graded in Near Mint/Mint condition is generally indistinguishable from cards in an unsleeved deck of other Near Mint/Mint cards. Foils in this category have little or no scuffing or clouding on the front.)

SP = "Slightly Played" (Cards in Slightly Played condition show definite, minor wear. Examples of cards in this grade include cards with mild border wear, minor corner wear, slight scratching, clouding, or scuffing/loss of sheen on the front due to play wear. Cards signed by the card's artist or Richard Garfield, or bearing a pro tour stamp, are graded as Slightly Played condition, if they would otherwise be Near Mint or Slightly Played. Foils in this condition will generally have some clouding or wear on the front of the card. Sleeves may or may not be needed to play these cards in a tournament.)

MP = "Moderately Played" (Cards in Moderately Played condition show moderate wear, but are still legal for tournament play if sleeved. Examples of cards in this grade include cards with moderate binder creasing, moderate corner wear, moderate border wear,  whitening on the back or front face of the card, slight inking along the back borders, moderate scratching, minor water damage, or slight (hairline)shuffle creasing.)

HP = "Heavily Played" (Cards in Heavily Played condition show extreme wear, and may not be legal for tournament play, even in a sleeve. We do not sell cards in this condition on our website! We do occasionally sell Heavily Played cards in-person at events, where the buyer can see the exact amount of damage to the card before purchase. Heavily Played cards include cards that have writing on the back, major creasing, folding, major water damage, major whitening, major border wear, major inking (white-bordered cards that are markered on front to look black-bordered), tearing, chunks missing out of the card, cards that have been run over by a car, cards that have been run through a washing machine, etc. In short, Heavily Played cards are any cards that grade worse than Moderately Played.)

If the majority of the cards are MP/HP or worse; a further penalty may occur to cover the costs of supplies used for inventory card condition indication.

Alternatively the entire sell order will be refused entry into our inventory.

Foreign Cards:

Currently we are not buying all foreign cards. Please send us an email to check what foreign cards we are buying.

How to Ship Your Order:

Be sure to include a print out of your confirmation e-mail and sell list. Failure to provide both could delay processing and payment of your order by at least one business day.

Make sure that the order of the cards on your list matches the physical order of the cards shipped to us. If you do not have your cards in any order, or if the non-bulk cards have multiple problems, you will incur a 10% penalty to your ENTIRE sell order.

Make sure your cards are packaged securely. We cannot be responsible for any items damaged in transit to our store. Collections that arrive in a state of complete disarray will incur penalties of up to 50% or may be refused outright. If we refuse to purchase your collection because this rule was not followed, you will be responsible for all shipping costs associated with returning your collection.

Your sell order must total at least $10.00. If your sale totals less than $10.00, we will ask you to add cards to your order until you reach $10.00. Please do not individually sleeve cards that are under $10 in value. We need to de-sleeve cards to grade them, and the more cards we have to de-sleeve, the longer it will take to process your buy.

We encourage you to use a track-able method (Courier post or NZ couriers) to ship your package. You are allowed to ship to us via the NZ post office, but please keep in mind that standard NZ shipping options cannot be tracked. You are responsible for all shipping costs of items you are selling/trading to us, including any postage due or custom fees that we may incur upon receipt of your package.

Points to remember:

  1. Remove cards from any sleeves, binders, or other packaging.

  2. Avoid rubber bands, paper clips, and any other containers that may damage your cards.

  3. Cards should be secured in a hard shell case, deck box, fat pack or other container.

  4. Ensure that cards are packed securely and will not shift or fall out during transit.

  5. When packaging your cards do not use excessive tape or anything else that will put your cards at risk by making the package difficult to open.

  6. We encourage you to obtain a tracking number and insurance for your shipment.

After You Ship:

Once we receive your cards, we will review your package to make sure all the cards are accounted for, and their condition according to our grading guide. If any of your cards were not NM according to the grading guide, we will send you an e-mail with an adjusted total for the buy. We will never process a buy with an adjusted total due to grading without first contacting you to make sure that the adjusted total is acceptable!

Please ship your cards within two business days of receiving approval for your buy. You do not need to get us the cards within two days, but the postmark on the package must reflect that the cards were shipped within two business days of your confirmation e-mail.

International Shipments

We accept shipments from all countries; however most international orders take 3-5 additional business days to process. Whenever there are customs or import fees associated with your package, you are responsible for the payment of the fees. In the case of such fees, we will contact you with the amount of fees associated with your package, and deduct that amount from your final order total.


We reserve the right to refuse any sell order, at any time, for any reason.

Payment by bank deposit or PayPal is usually sent within a business week of confirmed receipt of your cards. Trade Credit is usually issued within two days of confirmed receipt of your cards. Payments may be slightly delayed during times of great business volume (set releases, Xmas period, website wide sales, etc.)

You will be responsible for all Paypal fees associated with payment. Paypal fees are found here: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/paypal-fees


If your cards need to be returned (usually due to issues with grading/card condition), you are responsible for the cost of shipping to have the cards returned to you. You may use credit card, PayPal, or store credit to pay for shipping costs. If you request to have your cards sent back, you have 30 days to pay for shipping costs.

If payment has not been received within 30 days, we will process your sell order using the amount of our last adjusted offer. The return shipping cost can be between $4.5 to $10NZD.
