The Card Collective - Who are we?
Selling your collection of Pokémon or Magic cards can be a daunting endeavor. Because of this, we here at The Card Collective strive to make the process as easy and safe as possible. We guide you through the entire process and you are always welcome to contact us with any questions you may have.
The Card Collective has partnered with Spilforsyningen whom we also share physical location with. It’s also possible to meet us around the world, when we visit conventions and events. We have a true passion for Pokémon and Magic cards and because of this we are always on the look-out for new collections and exciting cards.
Here you can sell your Pokémon or Magic cards
You can sell your collection almost no matter its size - no collection is too grand! However, if your collection is small or of very low value, we might not be interested in buying it, as it might not be worth our time to evaluate the collection. We are especially interested in rare and valuable cards such as Charizards or the Black Lotus.
How do you sell your card collection?
We provide two easy ways for you to sell your Pokémon or Magic cards.
Buylist: Right here on our website you can create a “Buylist” - a list of the cards you wish to sell. With this option, you fill in the information about the cards you wish to sell yourself and while doing so, you will be able to see how much the individual cards approximately are worth. We have created a step-by-step guide of how to use the Buylist-system here. This option is generally better for smaller collections.
E-mail: If you wish to avoid having to add each individual card in your collection, you can instead send us and e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org and inform us that you wish to sell your collection. Remember to attach some pictures of your collection.
If we are interested in your collection, you can either drop it off at our store at Bispensgade 34, 9000 Aalborg for a final appraisal. All you have to do is sign in at the register and fill in a form with your contact information. You will then receive a proof that you have dropped off your collection with us. Alternatively we will send you a package label and you can then mail us your collection.
Payment for your collection
When we have had a chance to go through and appraise your collection, we’ll send you an offer for the parts of it we are interested in*. You can choose whether you wish to receive payment as cash/wire transfer or store credit. We always pay more in store credit.
Store credit can be used either on our webshop, where it is assigned to your account (based on the e-mail you have provided). If you are more interested in products like Warhammer, boardgames or something completely different, you can also choose to receive store credit to the physical store, Spilforsyningen.
Normally we pay between 50-70% of the cards resell value. This price is calculated based on the card’s market value and general demand and interest for the card. We take note of the price of other copies of the same cards in the same condition that has been sold. Note that the prices displayed on our website doesn't necessarialy reflect the current average marketprice and might therefore by higher than other site or marketplaces.
For any card below a market value of 1€ (euro) we consider bulk and offer a standard price of: 20dkk per kg. for commons and uncommons, and 0.5 dkk per rare and mythic card.
The card’s general condition is also a major factor when calculating the price. Thus, the mentioned possible bid of approximately 50-70% of market value only applies to cards in Near Mint or Excellent condition. If you are uncertain what conditions the cards in your collection are in, you can check out at our Guide to card conditions.
Payment usually happens after we have received and inspected the cards so that we can make sure they meet the expectations set based on your submitted buylist or e-mail correspondence.
*Longer wait times can occur with large collections.
Do you live far away? We'll pay for shipping
If you happen to live too far away from the store to drop off the collection, we offer to pay for GLS shipping to the store. The cards are still your responsibility during transport, so if your collection is very valuable, we recommend dropping it off at the store or having it insured.
We only pay for shipping to the store. If you do not wish to accept our offer on your collection, you are required to pay for the return shipping. If you wish to have your cards sent to us for an appraisal, please make sure to pack them safely, as we do not take resposibility for any damages caused to the items during shipping. Do not use rubber bands or other methods that risk damaging the cards, as this will lower their value. If you have utilized a buylist, please make sure to pack the cards in the same order as they appear on the buylist.
Appraisal of card collections
If you are in need of a professional appraisal of your Magic Card or Pokémon collection, if you need a proof of value for your bank or insurance company, we provide this service. An appraisal costs a fixed fee of 250 DKK plus an additional 250 DKK for each hour of work begun while going through your collection.
