Resale packages

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Repacked Magic products or value packs are regularly sold in American "Big-Box" stores such as Walmart, Target, and Meijer stores.[1] Sometimes, they are also sold online on at Amazon. These products are repackaged because the original packaging has been damaged or otherwise wasn't sold. Wizards provides the packaging art to third parties to help them sell these loose items. As of September 2018, WotC started selling directly to the "Big-Box"stores and Amazon. It is as yet unknown, if the practice of resale packages will be continued.[2]

They also may be recognized by a red band around the deck.[1][note 4]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. "Stocking Tiger" and "Magister of Worth" were mis-packaged into some select blister packs.
  2. Promos starting in 2015 do not include the "A##" marking and are in the 2015-style border.
  3. They are often too small and will not fit sleeved cards at all. Most of the time the contianers are not meant for playing cards. Sometimes however, you do find a double container that does fit sleeved cards.
  4. These are the decks only, and maybe a strategy insert. You will most likely not get all of the cards if the original packaging had foil or oversized cards displayed on the front of the package.
  5. Some of the "precronstructed" decks could be all lands.
  6. These were advertised as a deck by themselves.
