  • ALL traded in items must be in Mint condition. Credit is valid for binders ONLY unless stated otherwise.

  • Bulk trades which require excessive processing time (i.e. unsleeving of cards) might receive a trade value deduction of up to 15%.

  • We also offer collection appraisals for insurance purposes.

  • Singles credit means cards in binders and our "deck basics" section. Showcase credit means any cards in showcases as well as binder and deck basics.


  • Why does Metal Galaxy specify that bulk is only good for binder and deck basics type credit? 

We want to give our customers the opportunity to trade in not just their best cards but also bulk commons, uncommons and rares which do not see much play. In the same way that the majority of players would not give up a high end card for bulk (i.e. a thousand commons for a Tarmogoyf), we do not feel it would be fair to expect the store to give up high end and difficult to get cards for low value and not played cards.


Processing bulk is time consuming and we do it not only as a courtesy to our loyal customers but also so that we may build low cost introductory sets for new or casual players at a very limited level of profit. One could say we are recycling and giving purpose to all that bulk :)

Our binders are well stocked and maintained and offer thousands of cards to those trading in bulk.

  •  Why does Metal Galaxy have a 3 tier credit system?

Our experience is that most stores in town do not offer bulk trade-ins and instead chose to focus mainly on accepting high end cards. In doing so, it allows them to offer a wider range of product to those trading in while, at the same time, limiting what can be traded in.


Different tiers of credit allows Metal Galaxy to virtually accept anything that is brought into us and account for the "quality" of what was brought in so that customers can save their credit if they chose to do so.

In addition, Metal Galaxy offers the best Loyalty program in town: earning points on EVERYTHING in the store, no restrictions, no blackouts and the ability to redeem for Store Credit or Showcase Singles Credit. In order to offer such a generous rewards program, we need to differentiate between customers who have earned a reward and those who have brought us bulk, hence the different tiers.

  • Are the posted Bulk Rates negotiable at all?

Metal Galaxy is ALWAYS available to negotiate prior to any trades being brought in and accepted/accounted for. Our primary goal is to make our customers happy while maintaining a balanced and dynamic business environment.

We strive to be as transparent as possible about why we do things the way we do and are always willing to answer your questions!
