I’m wondering if anyone can enlighten me on selling Magic cards at Gen Con. Will they buy all cards or only a selection? Is it for cash or credit? Is it worth it?
I havent played for several years so I know most of the cards I have probably aren’t current.
So, you have a couple of options.
Number One: Look up the vendors that will be there and see if they have a website or potentially buylists, that will give you an idea of what you could get in either credit or cash
Two: You could always take them to your local game store, just do the research before hand so you know the worth
Three: In all seriousness, depending on the cards, I might be interested in them. :) Just let me know what you've got.
Four: Depending on how determined you are to get a certain amount for them, you could put them in the Auction, as one lot or a few different lots (maybe single cards for particularly valuable ones if relevant, but it does not sound like you are too sure as to their value). You could definitely get something for them, and depending on when exactly you played, maybe a lot more than something.
I paid for my entire trip with 7 cards last time I went. You could definitely get more money but they’re pretty fair. Cash on the spot
Just go to one of the vendors
As far as I know, sometimes you can play fantasy mini-games, like online solitaire as an example. That's how I ran into MTG cards.
