Magic: the Gathering News
MTG trade-ins opening up – Mon & Tues
Some good news for phase 4! We’re resuming Magic singles buying! Hooray! You can trade in those hot singles for store credit. There are some rules, all born out of a need to reduce time in the store to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, but they’re not too complex:
- MTG Buying Hours will be only Monday & Tuesday from noon – 6 pm. This will help us be certain of the length of time cards traded in have been quarantined, and help reduce the amount of time players are standing in the store waiting to only two days.
- If you have 20 or fewer cards, you can stop in any time Monday or Tuesday during our open hours (noon – 6 pm) to trade them in.
- If you have more than 20, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a plan – we want to keep selling appointments to 15 minutes or less, since time indoors is one of the biggest risk factors.
- Cards purchased will be kept in quarantine for 72 hours before any staff or customer may touch them.
That’s it! We’re buying all kinds of cards, from rare to bulk, so let the floodgates reopen and let’s do some trades.
Boxes of Double Masters are still available for pre-order, but be warned; supply is going to be more limited than advertised (as with everything) due to print run shortages. We’ve already seen Mystery sell out far sooner than expected, and we have experienced stock shortages of Core 2021 as well! Don’t let Double Masters pass you by, particularly if you’re a commander player.
