Kelly answers reader questions and muses about the end of the Summer PTQ season.
If you’re anything like me, you love Magic. More specifically, you love trading Magic cards. The thrill of the trade is just as exciting as winning FNM or cracking that first Baneslayer Angel. If you’re reading this site, then I’m sure you’ve seen some of the great advice of the other writers here and maybe […]
In my last column, I discussed some of the resources you should have to being making short-swing trades on cards, using the power of real-time social media instead of the snail’s pace of “real life”.

The bidding mechanism of Ebay gets buyers emotionally invested in cards, encouraging them to bid more and follow your items. This week, we will look at the major question of selling on Ebay: whether to use Buy-It-Now (BIN) or a traditional auction to sell your cards. Though the choice looks small, a good decision can make a difference of 20% or more on your sale.
Chris McNutt discusses his Demand Matrix concept further, showing some math that helps pin down a card’s “actual” value by using multiple different price sources. This is required theory reading only on DS!
