Q: Is this a misprint?
If it doesn't look right then it probably is! I cover the majority of types of misprints in my Beginners Guide to Misprints so be sure to read that. There are too many variations of misprints to try and list everything (I might try one day) so if you have something not in the guide that doesn't mean that it isn't a misprint!
Q: How much is my misprint worth?
To help pay for the costs of running this website, I will no longer be offering free misprint appraisals. If you'd like to know how much your misprint is worth, please support the site by donating $1 per misprint. If you like free stuff, I wrote a whole whole article, available to you free of charge, explaining how to figure out how much your misprint is worth!
Cards & misprints that I get asked about all the time:
- Graf Rats/Midnight Scavengers: Not even a misprint, read this WotC Article
- Captains Claws w/ Goldnight Castigator Foil: I've now included a full explanation in the Beginner's Guide!
- Fling w/ Toolcraft Exemplar foiling: I've now included a full explanation in the Beginner's Guide!
- Tormenting Voice w/ Drake Haven Foiling: I've now included a full explanation in the Beginner's Guide!
- Gaea's Touch w/ shifted text: 1 in 3 have this error. They're super common.
- Artist Proofs: If you have a card with a blank, white back, it's most likely an Artist Proof. AP's are given to MTG artists in limited quantities to sell or give away as promotions for their work. There's a whole group on Facebook dedicated to AP's. Go check it out!
Q: Where should I sell my misprint?
Q: Where can I buy misprints?
The Misprint and Rarities Facebook Group - Tons of cards get posted there daily, and usually most of them are for sale.
eBay - Smaller audience than the FB group, but it is a dedicated marketplace which helps streamline the buying and selling process.
SCG - Some cards are overprice, some are actually really good deals.
Squirrel Stash: An up and coming vendor that focuses primarily on misprints and rarities. He gets a good chunk of his inventory from the FB group and eBay so don't expect to get a deal of a lifetime. Regardless of the higher prices he has a lot of fantastic items so check it out if you're looking for something specific.
ABU Games - They’ve got a misprint “section” if you look at the right hand side of their main page. A lot of these cards have been listed for years and have not moved due to fairly high prices.
There are plenty of other places, but you’ll find the more you involve yourself with the community the more you’ll learn. The ones listed above should be a good start for you to build your collection!
