Trade Cards Online is shutting down.

Trade Cards Online will be shut down beginning 1 July 2019. We strongly recommend you export your lists before this date as the site, together with your account, will no longer be available afterwards. Trade Cards Online was started as a platform to provide the most comprehensive database available on the Internet. But since we weren't able to expend enough time to keep up with the marketplace, we have decided to shut the site down. While it's sad to say goodbye, we are hopeful that you will continue your passion for collecting. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you. We appreciate everyone who has used and supported Trade Cards Online. Thank you!

What I collect
All sets including famous mistakes, recalls, cards that are "MTG related", and MTG posters. I do not collect fluke misprints unless they are unique.

I don't trade for foils unless the card only comes in foil. Promos are the exception to this rule in which they must be foil unless it only comes as a non-foil.


Collection priority
Famous mistakes > Promos > Oversized > International sets > Older sets > Newer sets > Other


Set confusion
Before trading Unlimited, Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends and The Dark cards please refer to my forum posting on telling these cards apart from other sets so your not sending me Revised and Chronicles cards. Many set symbols were printed in multiples sets.

You may also check out my Ultimate Set Guide (Created by me) at:


Buying and selling
I don't buy, at-least not yet. I do sell and trade at average price; All monetary transactions will be conducted through TCO account transfers.


Shipping within the U.S.A
1 - ~30 cards - Snail mail
~31 and up - First Class
1 lb and up - Priority mail
Tracking is not available on snail mail.


International trades
Must include some Salvat, Rinascimento and/or promos, or cards that are hard to get in America.

Debe incluir alguna Salvat, Rinascimento y / o promociones, o tarjetas que son difíciles de conseguir en América. (Google)


I don't list the condition of most of my cards although most of them are M/NM. Many of the played/damaged ones are bundled up and set aside but you may get played ones here and there.


Proxy cards
Current status: Not accepting orders - Orders are seasonal and can be placed between April 1st and September 31st. Advance orders are accepted but it will not be worked on until April when it starts warming up.

I make proxies by request. If you want custom cards you must provide the art you want used. Please note that custom pictures may be cropped as needed.

Current rates (trades or monetary):
Foils - $3.50 each
Non-foils - $3.00 each

To see some samples please read my forum post


Proxy Care, Information Guide, and Policies

- To clean the backs of the cards gently use an art type eraser. Personally I use "Moo Professional Artist Erasers". White art erasers are less harsh on the cards and still get rid of the dirt that may accumulate with play.
- To clean the front of the cards use a cloth and isopropyl alcohol to clean dirt and fingerprints. Acetone can be used on the fronts if they have or gather glue residue, marker, or ink.

- Do not peel corners. Doing so may cause spots when re-stuck.
- Do not expose the backs of cards to acetone or any other paint thinner. This will completely ruin the back of the cards permanently.
- Do not expose to water. Water will separate the layers making the glue unusable. This will also cause the glue to change color making it very obvious and is not repairable.
- Do not use pencil erasers to clean with. Pink erasers are harsh and can rub off not just dirt but also the color or even pieces of the card itself.
- Do not use permanent marker to cover imperfections. The ink is not the same color, masks the foil and is glossy (similar to pen ink).

Improvements - Recent
- Better glue adhesion
- Reduced spotting

Improvements - old
- Card centering
- Huge quality improvement
- Foil edges have been eliminated
- 100% consistent card image sizes

- I'd advise using these proxies with sleeves. These proxies are slightly thicker than normal cards so they do not blend in or shuffle very well with real cards without the use of sleeves. Shuffling them without sleeves may also peel the corners.
- Legal use of proxies in MTG tournaments varies, check the rules for the tournament type and with the place holding the event if proxies are legal to use within the tournament.

- If corners do become unpeeled use a spray adhesive; I use “Loctite Multipurpose”. Spray the contents away from the card to get rid of any clogs or dried glue on the tip (don't stop spraying) then quickly pass over the the area to be re-glued at about a 6 inch distance (do not “point blank”). Let air dry for a few moments then re-stick. Careful not to get any glue on undesired areas. Repair jobs may be noticeable.

Replacement policy
- I will not send replacements for card that have been lost/damaged/altered by any means (except those lost/damaged by shipping), cards not centered, damage to the back of the cards due to the ink removal process, or quality not to an individuals liking; Although I do make every effort to notify a buyer/trader if a card is going to be low quality. Cards that are damaged by shipping must be postmarked back to me within 10 days of you receiving them before replacements may be given.
- Sometimes after a few months the ink between the card may become cracked and distorted. This is caused by having too much glue between the layers and cannot be detected immediately. If this occurs let me know and I will send a replacement. Ink that cracks due to heavy play is not covered by this policy. Cracked cards must also be returned to me at your expense. This glue issue is the only long term replacement policy and is valid for 1 year after postmark date.
- I also reserve the choice to accept or refuse replacements for any problem that may occur that are not explained in this policy.

Return policy
- Returns are not accepted on card trades, these are final. Replacements are available given the guidelines above.
- Returns are accepted on sales as long as the cards are not damaged. If only some of the cards are returnable an amount equal to the percentage returned will be refunded. Upon a price change the original value will be returned upon the time of sale, not the new price. Shipping costs are not refunded.
