Selling Items to Free Range Pumpkins

If you want to sell us comics or large collections of games, toys and/or card collections, please download and complete one of our trade forms then make an appointment to have your collection reviewed!  This is super important, as we may not always have a buyer on site to look over your collection and make an offer. We’d hate for you to bring in your awesome collection, and then not have anyone here to be able to properly evaluate it.

If you have a smaller collection of games and/or cards, you can download and complete one of our trade forms and bring it in to the store!

We do not appraise, grade, or value collections – we can only give you our purchase offer.

MOST IMPORTANT: We cannot offer the full retail / price guide value on anything. Our purchase price is usually significantly lower compared to the prices of what you would see in a price guide or online. If you are interested in getting market prices, we would recommend selling the item(s) yourself.

 

HOW TO BEST PRESENT YOUR STUFF!

It’s tempting to bring your things in their current condition, but the best thing you can do to get the most for your collectibles is to make them as presentable as possible. Contrary to popular belief, comics in “their original plastic” aren’t a thing. They’re just in dirty old bags and boards that need to be replaced. This costs money and reduces the amount we can pay for your collectibles because they require additional labor and supplies to prepare them for sale.

Comics

Want to sell your old comics? We’re here for you! If you bring in your comic collection without an appointment, we can only offer our blanket bulk price of $10 per long box of comics. Please note that with an appointment, we can properly evaluate your collection and potentially offer more. Please complete the Trade Form and make an appointment.

Here’s a few things to remember before scheduling your appointment:

  • Please only bring your comics in for your scheduled appointment unless you are interested in our blanket bulk purchase price.
  • Keep in mind there are some comics we may not even offer bulk pricing. Having an appointment and bringing your items in to sell is not a guarantee that we will be able to purchase them.
  • When you bring your collection in, please understand that we have to have some time to focus on sorting it out and figuring out a proper purchase price.
  • We’re not going to be able to spend time looking at every single comic. Be prepared to show us the comics you feel are the most important to review in our price evaluation.
  • If you prefer, you can just drop your collection off, and then return later for a quote. We charge $30/hour (minimum of $30) to process collections that have been dropped off.
  • We cannot give you any kind of estimates of what we’re able to offer via phone or email. We have to check it out in person to fairly assess it.

TCG/CCG Cards

We’re always buying Magic the Gathering cards! For trading in small collections or a handful of cards feel free to stop by any time and one of our employees can assist you. For larger collections please complete the Card Trade Form and make an appointment!

What we buy:

Lightly played/Near Mint singles. Only looking to trade in a few cards? Our staff can look through them and evaluate what we will/won’t buy. All buying decisions are based on our current inventory levels for individual cards.

For entire collections, regardless of condition or current inventory, please make an appointment to have a collection reviewed for a purchase price. Be prepared to show us cards of significant value as we will not be able to take the time to review each individual card.

Keep in mind, there are times we aren’t buying bulk from some sets. We do not buy basic land or tokens.

Bulk rates are constantly fluctuating, so the prices shown here should be used as a guide.

  • Bulk: $0.01 per card
  • Singles: 45% of TCG Player Market Price - we do not pay out on Near Mint Condition (store credit)

     

    Toys and Figures

    We are more than happy to make you an offer for your toys and collectibles.  Please complete the Trade Form and make an appointment. There are a few requirements to sell us your toys:

    • Must be in new condition.
    • Clean Package
    • New, In original packaging (preferable)

    (Basically, If you kept your items stored away & clean, then we are likely to purchase them. On the other hand, if your items were used as toys and played with, then we most likely won't be interested in purchasing.)

    Sports Cards

    We are not accepting sports cards at this time.

    Tabletop Games

    The first step is establishing whether the games you're selling are games we take. We don't usually buy mass market games such as Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Snakes and Ladders etc. We prefer to buy designer games such as Pandemic, Ticket to Ride, Blood Rage and much more.

    Next, you'll want to fill out our Trade Form making sure your list includes the manufacturer and edition of the game, as well as noting any cool expansions or promos.

    Lastly, be sure to make an appointment with our buyer. He will usually offer between 5%-50% of market value for used games.
