Trading Card Tips
Collectible cards - Pokemon, Magic, baseball and others - can be worth serious coin. Learn to trade like a pro or you could get ripped off cuz you don't know what your cards are worth.
If you've been a good Pokemaster all year Santa probably gave you a stack of cool new cards for Christmas. Now it's time to trade with your buddies to get the hot cards you want. But do you know what they're worth? Some cards are worth some serious money to collectors and traders. It's a good plan to know what yours are worth so you don't get burned when you're trading.
The trick is sorting out the big money cards from the ones you should pick your teeth with. Here's some advice:
If you want to figure out if your Poke-collection or your Harry Potter cards are worth enough for a new skateboard, snag a Trading Card Game magazine. The mag Duelist, from Wizards of the Coast, is a good one. So are Inquest and Scrye. You can find them at your local comic/hobby store for about $5 US. Make sure you snag the newest issue - prices are always changing, so an old mag is useless.
I have been playing Magic since Invasion came out. I stopped playing for a year and when I came back a whole new style of Magic appeared with high powered cards. I learned to play from expert cards.
