Selling your Magic Cards to Jupiter Games
Full Policy & Details

Preparation & Drop-off
  • * Prepare the cards you wish to sell by following our card preparation requirements, outlined below.
  • * Drop off your cards at Jupiter Games.
  • * We reserve the right of refusal on any card submitted for buying. For example, we do not buy cards that are heavily damaged or cards that exhibit an odor, and any such cards may be refused at the drop-off or when discovered later during processing.
  • * We're currently limiting purchases to a quantity of 4,000 cards (or what will fit in one 4-row box) per drop-off. Please contact us to make other arrangements if you'll be selling an exceptionally large quantity of cards.

Card Preparation Requirements
  • * Remove your cards from any binders.
  • * Remove your cards from their sleeves. You may leave any individual card with a buylist value of $25 or greater in its sleeve, but we are unable to return the sleeve to you.
  • * Your must sort your cards.
  • * Buylist cards are cards known to have value and they are listed individually on our buylist. These cards must be sorted by SET. Locate the set symbol, the small graphic on the far right of the line beneath the card art, and arrange your cards so that all matching set symbols (regardless of the symbol's color) are together. Then group together any cards that do not have a set symbol.
  • * Bulk cards are cards not known to have individual value and are not found on a buylist search. These must be sorted by FOIL/NON-FOIL and then by RARITY. Locate the set symbol, the small graphic on the far right of the line beneath the card art, and arrange your cards so that all of the cards with a red set symbol are together, regardless of the symbol's shape. These are mythics. Do the same with all cards with a gold set symbol (rares), then all cards with silver or black symbols (commons & uncommons). Finally, group together any cards that do not have a set symbol.
  • * If you do not have your buylist cards separated from your from bulk cards or you do not know what the distinction is, sort all of your cards together by SET using the rules for buylist cards, above.
  • * Separating your buylist cards from bulk cards may speed up processing time significantly.
  • * A 10% buy offer penalty may be assessed on any buy order that does not meet these preparation requirements.

Processing Your Cards (~1 Business Day)
  • * We will determine the value of your cards using our published buylist and/or bulk pricing matrix.
  • * The values will then be adjusted based on our grading guidelines for card conditions.
  • * We reserve the right of refusal on any card or cards submitted for processing.
  • * If we reject any of your cards during processing, we will notify you and immediately make those cards available for pickup.

Grading Guidelines - Card Conditions


Near Mint:

A card in Near Mint condition will show little to no wear. It may have a light scratch, small nick, or barely noticeable border wear. A foil card will have little to no clouding and retain most or all of its original gloss.


Slightly Played:

These cards are purchased at 80% of the Near Mint price. A card in Slightly Played condition will show visible, minor wear. It may have mild border or corner wear, minor bending, light scratching, small nicks, light scuffing, or very minor border creasing. A foil card may also have moderate clouding and have lost some of its original gloss. A foil card with moderate curving that would otherwise be Near Mint will be graded as Slightly Played.


Moderately and Heavily Played:

These cards are purchased at 50-60% of the Near Mint price. A card in Moderately Played condition will show easily visible, but not extreme wear. It may have extensive border or corner wear, major bending, major scratching, major nicks, major scuffing, major creasing along the top border from shuffling, moderate whitening, slight inking along the borders, slight tearing along the borders, minor water damage, minor dirt buildup, or slight discoloration. A foil card may also have major clouding and have lost most of its original gloss. A card in Heavily Played condition will show all of the above to a greater extent.

We are not presently buying cards signed by the artist, Richard Garfield, or bearing a Pro Tour Stamp. If these cards would otherwise be graded as Near Mint, they will instead be graded as Moderately Played.


Damaged:

We do not accept Damaged cards.

A card in Damaged condition will show easily visible, extreme wear. It may have major whitening, heavy inking, major creasing or tearing, extensive water damage, writing on the front or back, missing pieces, extensive dirt buildup, or extreme discoloration. A foil card that is Damaged may also have lost all of its original gloss.

Sticker Cards that have had any of the stickers peeled are Damaged.

Cards that exhibit a discernible odor are Damaged.


Please note that these percentages will be lower on older, more collectible sets such as Alpha, Beta, Unlimited, etc.
