Magazine Exchange is proud to distribute the best brands in the Trading Card Game and Sports Trading Card market. We have been in business and under the same ownership since 1976 and we belive the brands we represent say a lot about our company. Here is information on just a few of the brands we carry. We carry other great brands as well... this is just a few highlights!
Magic: The Gathering is arguably the most important brand for the trading card game market. A long history, a loyal customer base and the support of the Wizards Play Network all combine to create a brand unlike any other. If you have a hobby gaming store not only should you be supporting this brand, you should also be an active Wizard's Play Network location. This free program supported by Wizard's of the Coast will increase your store's sales, profits and loyal customer base. Please talk to us about Magic and the Wizard's Play Network.
Yu-Gi-Oh is another key brand for any trading card game store. Like Wizard's, Konami has an active and vibrant Organized Play Support program. We fully support and recommend to our retailers that they participate in the Konami Official Tournament Store program. Magazine Exchange feels that we are one of your most reliable distribution choices for this brand. We hope you will consider us for your Yu-Gi-Oh business.
Even people not involved in the trading card game industry know about Pokemon! This game continues to captivate young new gamers! With the Black and White series we have seen our sales of Pokemon absolutely sky rocket. Make sure your store is stocking the Pokemon Trading Card Game.
For heritage and brand recognition it is hard to beat The Topps Company. Magazine Exchange is proud to be one of a small group of Topps Authorized Hobby Distributors. We have had our account with Topps since 1983, which actually makes our company the most senior of their distribution partners. So we like to think that we have a great heritage just like The Topps Comany. In a world where so many products are being replaced by the internet collectible sports trading cards have proven to be a remarkably resiliant business.
Panini, with licenses for the NFL, NHL, NBA and the MLBPA has a great "stable" of trading card products that our shops rely upon to fuel sales year round. We are very pleased to be able to say that we represent the Panini brands in the sports trading card hobby market. Please call us with your Panini product and promotional needs. The promotional comment is a hint... we have found Panini to be very receptive of helping shops with case break parties, customer appreciation nights, etc.
There are only four Authorized Hobby Distributors in the United States for the Upper Deck Company, and we are one of them. Upper Deck is licensed for NHL trading cards as well as Collegiate Football cards. They make some of the most popular and in demand brands in the trading card category. Brands like SP Authentic Football and Upper Deck Hockey are perennial best sellers year after year. If your store is not an Upper Deck Certified Diamond Dealer location please give us a call and we will be delighted to help you with the application process.
