We do not accept back orders on items not in stock. This is because the rapid change in prices on some cards means we can't guarantee any prices will remain the same. However, we do accept pre-orders for new sets.

The price guide magazines are a guide, not an actual price list. They are formed by taking the average value of card prices sent in by different people around the world. Our prices are set by our cost to purchase the cards, the demand for the cards compared to the supply, the labor costs to obtain, sort and grade the cards, and the actual rarity of the cards.

Each card is carefully evaluated by a person with over three years of experience in grading collectible cards. Played cards show wear, but are still in good condition and are not excessively worn. They have no damage or distinctive marks that would make them illegal in tournament play.
Alpha cards have a more rounded border than all other magic cards made since then, including Beta cards. If you put an Alpha card in a stack of other magic cards, the Alpha card is easy to detect due to its corner. There are 295 different Alpha cards.
Collector's Edition or International Collector's Edition cards are official Magic the Gathering cards which were printed as a complete set by Wizards Of The Coast. They do not compete in value with regular cards. These cards have square corners, gold border and the "collector's edition" written at the back. These cards, when used with sleeves, are allowed in some tournaments , check with the tournament coordinator.
Miscuts are cards that were cut incorrectly at the factory, and thus have part of the card cut off at the wrong place on the picture. Such cards have little collectible value. Misprints are cards which were printed incorrectly, such as having the wrong card face put on the back of a different set, or the front picture having no color. Some misprints include some Fallen Empire cards printed with Wyvern backs, and Magic cards printed with no color in the front picture. Misprints often have a high collectible value.
These are cards professionally graded by the Professional Sports Authenticator service in California. They are graded by a numeric process 1-10, 10 being perfect mint and 9 being mint. They are considered to be worth more to those collecting PSA graded cards. Hobby4Sure doesn't not guarantee the grading of any PSA graded cards sold by us, as they were graded by another company.
Certain high value, very collectible cards (like an Unlimited Black Lotus or Alpha Demonic Hordes) are worth considerably more in better conditions. We have instituted a larger group of card conditions to make sure each customer knows exactly what they are buying, and can be confident that if they purchase a Mint card, they will be pleased with the condition. This also offers flexibility for a player who wants to use a card in their deck and does not care as much for condition.
When WOTC switched production from Alpha to Beta, they had some Alpha rares left over. These rares were mixed into the Beta print run when collating some of the Beta Starters. It is thus possible you will find the rare in a Beta Starter to be an Alpha, not a Beta.

Fake cards are indeed a problem in the hobby because so many cards have a high value. Fake cards are made by color photocopying cards, taking Collector Edition cards and gluing the fronts onto the backs of regular cards, by actual printing cards in a printing press, and many other methods. Since original cards are made using a patented printing process created by Carta Mundi, it is impossible to actually make an undetectable fake. We have an expert on staff who checks all our valuable cards to detect fakes. Over the years we have been shown hundreds of fake cards. When we encounter a fake, depending on the circumstances, we either give it back to the person and tell them that it is a fake, or we ship the fake card to Wizards Of The Coast, to be handled by their counterfeit department. If you have cards that you concerned about, we would be happy to evaluate the authenticity of the cards at any show that we are attending. You can contact us on the Contact Us page to find out if we are attending a show that you are also interested in attending.
