Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.):
Q: Is TradingCardSets.Com legit? Are these cards authentic?
A: Yes! We sell 100% authentic trading cards. None of our cards are fake cards, replica cards, "artist" cards, or any other version of fake cards.
You can purchase from our eBay store link here if you would prefer to purchase on eBay. While our prices are higher on eBay due to the fees they charge sellers, our customers frequently make their first purchase from our eBay store in order to establish trust and then return to our website for better deals on future purchases.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: Yes! We ship anywhere that we are legally allowed to ship from the United States. We are based in Florida, USA.
Q: Do you have reviews available anywhere?
A: We have reviews on our eBay store (https://www.ebay.com/usr/justinxverley), and additionally on Google.
Q: What condition are these cards in? What kind of quality control measures are in place?
A: Card condition ranges from Near Mint to Moderately Played. We do our best to reject or replace any cards we receive that have dents, creases, folds, or other significant defects. In some cases, cards may have some edgewear, scratches, or whitening.
Q: Why are these cards so cheap/so expensive?
A: We price our products competitively based on eBay's recently sold listings. We are open to offers on most sets. We sell cards across many third party marketplaces including eBay, Etsy, Facebook, and more. By making sales directly from our website instead of a third party marketplace, we can save as much as 20% in fees we pay for promotion and sale. In turn, this allows us to offer lower prices on our website listings than most competing listings on any other marketplaces. Think of it as cutting out the middleman. We also scout auction deals and purchase vintage sets and cards in bulk from certified card shops throughout the United States. Through these methods we are able to reduce the cost of acquiring cards, marketing, and card sales in order to provide our customers with high-quality, affordable products.
Q: Do you sell singles (individual cards)?
A: If you are in the market for individual cards, we recommend buying from our partners Disco Cardz in Florida. You can browse their available inventory by clicking this link (https://www.tcgplayer.com/search/product/all?seller=4adb1224)
Q: Are prices negotiable?
A: Yes! We are open to offers on most sets, and we additionally can provide discount codes for the purchase of multiple sets. Send us an e-mail at email@example.com or message us using the on-site chat feature to work out a deal.
Q: What will these cards grade?
A: We do not grade cards, and we are unable to provide an estimate for what our cards would grade. Many factors affect grading beyond simply condition, including centering. We are happy to provide closeups of the fronts and backs of any cards you would like to inspect for self-grading.
Q: Why would someone want to purchase using this service rather than building a set themselves?
A: There are many advantages to purchasing a set through TradingCardSets.Com. Rather than needing to hunt sometimes upwards of 100 individual cards and deal with fakes, damaged cards, scammers, and processing individual returns, we handle all of that for you. For international Pokémon TCG lovers, purchasing a complete set is often the most cost-effective way to collect vintage cards, and it simplifies the process of dealing with customs and import taxes.
Q: Are international orders subject to customs fees, duties, or taxes?
