Here’s how you can sell Gnome Games your used cards and other games.

Do you have old Yu Gi Oh, Magic or Pokemon cards that are just gathering dust?

Well Gnome Games will often take them off your hands and give you some Gnome Gold for them!

Here’s how you can sell your stuff to us.

Simply fill out this form, tell us a little bit about what you have and we’ll email you back within 2 business days IF we are interested and when we can take a look at them to make you an offer.

If you don’t hear back within 2 business days, we aren’t interested in the stuff at this time.
For some things we are almost always buying at bulk rates for in store credit – SEE BELOW for walk in rates. 

We purchase items from minors only when their parents are present, or have given us previous permission – so mom or dad will have to come in as well.

Walk in CCG rates –

We are currently paying the following for bulk collections – (cards must but in very good to excellent condition).
When we buy in bulk we’ll measure your cards – and offer a rate based on 80 cards per inch.
Walk in rates are in for in store credit only and are non-negotiable.  Our staff isn’t allowed to offer any more than what this price list indicates and these rates are for in store credit.

We will always ask for a photo ID and minors (anyone under the age of 18) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.  Older siblings and friends aren’t usually legal guardians.

Cards must be in very good or better condition, and neatly collected into easily measurable boxes or stacks. We will count pages of full cards in binders, look at your bulk cards, determine via measurement or very quick count of how many you have and what condition we think they are in.  Then a Gnome Games staff will make you an offer on the whole lot for Gnome Games store Credit on the spot. 

These offers are NON NEGOTIABLE – take it or leave it offers, and may be downgraded based on observed card condition. We may ask you to wait or set up a time if we are busy when you come in to sell us your cards.  We do not do appraisals without an appointment.

Near-Mint Condition, definition (to receive our full buy price):

A Near-Mint card is generally in very good condition. It may have a few hard to notice flaws such as very minor whitening on the edges or very slight dings.

Very Good – Played Condition, definition (this receives only up to 50% of our buy price):

These have more noticeable flaws such as small surface scratches, whitening, stamps from competitive events etc. Writing on a card is considered damaged, however only in Magic: The Gathering, if it is the signature of either Richard Garfield, or the artist we will consider it played.

Damaged Condition, definition:

We ask that you do not bring damaged cards to us. These are cards that have major flaws including but not limited to water damage, creases, peeling, and writing / drawing (not including artist signature).
