Just Games is east side Rochester‘s source for Magic: the Gathering singles. We have a wide selection of Standard singles, but we also stock over a half-million individual cards in our card catalog, ranging from ultra-rare Legacy and Vintage staples like Moxes and Dual Lands, to casual EDH cards like Thrumming Stone and Gamble. We open thousands of packs so that you don’t have to!

We reserve the right to refuse any trade, at any time, for any reason. To trade in cards you must be 18 or older, possess a valid government issued ID, own all cards traded in, and provide Just Games with a phone number, email, signature and address at which you may be contacted if necessary.
When do you buy?
We recently updated our buying hours! We typically buy cards daily, but due to COVID please check on current restrictions.
How do you pay?
Store credit or PayPal payment. For larger collections of individual cards ($1000+) we may write a check.
Do you appraise / authenticate cards?
No, we do not.
When you bring cards in, we will offer a rate for the entire collection you bring in. We do not individually break cards out of stacks or sort your collection for you. Please bring us only cards you want to sell.
How do you value cards?
We use a combination of TCGPlayer’s Professional software and a proprietary database that collects the prices that individual cards have actually sold for in the last 72 hours across multiple online markets (Ebay, Amazon, TCG, etc). This ensures that buy and sell prices are as accurate as possible. This methodology removes 99.9% of errors from card pricing, and ensures both parties are getting up to the minute market information.
