We Buy Singles and Collections

If you’d like to sell us individual Magic Online cards, boosters, and other items for event tickets, please trade our buybots on Magic Online: Academy_Buybot, Academy_Buybot2, Academy_Buybot3, and Academy_Buybot4.

MTGO Academy also buys bulk Magic Online collections at competitive prices. We buy collections of any size and pay in Event Tickets or verified PayPal cash. If you are interested in selling your collection or a significant part of your collection, you can send us your collection as a CSV file for a quote (please email it to collection@mtgoacademy.com). If you are not sure how to create a CSV file, please see the very short video below. We have many satisfied customers and hope you consider us when selling.

Please note that due to the large amount of collection offers that we receive, we only respond to collections that we are interested in buying. If you do not receive a reply but end up keeping your collection, please feel free to send us your file again should you wish to sell it in the future– our needs change over time!

How do I create a CSV file of my collection?

First, on the Collection View of the MTGO Client, click on “Display” and select “List View.” Second, right-click on the “Name” header and choose “Select all” from the context menu. Third, right-click again on the “Name” header and choose “Export Selected Cards” from the context menu. Finally, save the file as a “.csv” file and email it to us.

After receiving your CSV file, which helps us quickly peruse the contents of your collection, we will reply within 48 hours with a quote if we are interested in purchasing it. If you do decide to sell, please proceed as follows:

1. Respond within the given time frame in our offer e-mail.

2. Next, we will confirm our offer to you and ask you to change your password to a provided one so that we can verify that your CSV file matches the collection you actually have.

3. Then, we will transfer the most valuable cards to our account and send the payment for them via PayPal to an email address of your choice. (If you want Event Tickets, we will leave them on your account after we have transferred your collection.)

4. In most cases, we will need 24 hours to transfer the rest of the cards to our accounts.

After the completed transaction, we would greatly appreciate your feedback so that others can benefit from your opinion and experience.

Thank you for considering us,
MTGO Academy team

  1. I just send you my collection yesterday, they have pretty good cards, and I’m interested on selling everything, when will you be able to answer me? :O

  2. Fran, if you’ve followed the instructions above, chances are that our team has already gotten back to you. Let me know if they haven’t.

  3. I’ve sent off my .CSV twice now with no response…anything I can do to nudge it along?

  4. See above, Tom:

    “Please note that due to the large amount of collection files that we receive, we only respond to collections that we are interested in buying.”

  5. Also, your response time on these comments is terrible, answering months later like people are still waiting around….

  6. Hi I just sent my collection for your evaluation yesterday (Mishmash), MTGO Traders has just sent me their offer, I am awaiting your response to see the better offer before I sell. Have you had a chance to evaluate it yet?

  7. Hi, i Just send you my CSV saturday and until now didnt received an answer.

    Can you check up please.


  8. Just had an easy and pleasant transaction with Michael. Sold my 30,000+ collection, and was paid within 30 minutes of starting the process.


  9. 15k cards 500+ dollars not quite as fast as some of the other dealers but by far the best deal and easy email communication. Sent CSV 8/19 Received $$ next day or very early 2 days later but part of that was me not being able to change my password till early evening.

    A+ Would do Business with again.

    Same as the above comment Michael was in contact with me.

  10. Great transaction with these guys. Got my 80k card collection appraised, traded and paid for within 24 hours. Highly recommend them and will be doing business with them again.

  11. Selling my collection of legacy and modern staples was a really hard decision, but MTGO Academy offered me the best price (some quotes were $200 less).

    It’s not just the price; when you sell your collection, you have to let the buyer into your account – so the main risk you’re taking is being able to trust the buyer’s reputation.

    MGTO Academy were approachable, professional, and honourable.

  12. Sold a modest range of Vintage, Legacy, and Standard cards. I shopped around, and this was, by far, the best offer I received. The whole process was fast and painless, and the communication was outstanding. A+ service!

  13. Worked with Michael and the process was simple and the deal was very fair. I appreciated the quick response, and the help with the process. I would not hesitate to recommend MTGO Academy to anyone who asks.

    Thanks again Michael.

  14. I was getting quotes to sell my collection from 7 different bot chains, and MTGO Academy was one of them. Out of the 7, only 3 ever got back to me, and Michael was the first. Nothing but professionalism and quick service. In the craziness that is the MTGO marketplace, this is one of the few trustworthy vendors out there.
