Introduction, and Summary of our aims:
-Simply put, This is a pack trading thread, OUR CARDS for YOUR PACKS.
We, the Top Cut Trading Inc. are small group of friends and traders with a big aim. We want to use our expansive collections for the good of the community; and try to meet collectors and players diverse range of needs, in exchange for Booster Packs (which act effectively as a trade currency).
This thread is updated almost daily to reflect the public supply and demand of our traded cards/items. This is in order to ensure that you can feel comfortable using the values of this thread to get proper value out of your cards, and to ensure that all our traded cards are traded at what we perceive to be the fairest value.
We almost always are able to offer a discount on large orders, as long as the cards are not all '*' rated or HGSS-era. If needed and requested we will also add evolution lines to your ordered card, normally at no extra cost, unless the card is pre-NXD or has a greater value for some other reason.
If there is any unlisted card that you wish to inquire about please ask on the thread. Should you have any questions, complaints, or issues with a particular trader on the thread, please contact me in game, and I will try to find a solution if possible.
If you are looking on guidance for how to complete a trade, general rules and guidelines, or information on card rarity. They are now all located below the Value Guide; please see the contents section for more details.
It is important to note that as a result of some packs being in significantly higher demand/lower availability than others, different packs may well have different ratios in relation to the values located on the thread price guide.
The list of packs and their respective ratios, in comparison to what we term One 'standard' Pack (which means the value which is stated next to the card in the 'Value Guide'), are located below.
We hold the right to change these ratios at short notice if necessary, and different traders may have slightly different ratios; but this will be made clear to you before completing a trade with them .
Number of Each Type of Pack: One 'standard' Pack (how many packs are necessary to equal the value of one 'standard' pack)
-A Standard Pack is the value listed next to the card
Example 1: If Mewtwo EX NXD Regular had a value of 5 'Standard' Packs then it would cost 10 Flashfire packs, (because 5 x 2:1= 10)
Example 2: You would need 3 Primal Clash Packs to equal the value of 2 'Standard' Packs. (because 2 x 1.5:1= 3)
Example 3: You would need 4 Legendary Treasures Packs to equal the value of 2 'Standard' Packs. (because 2 x 2:1= 4)
Example 4: You would need 10 Unleashed Packs to equal the value of 1 'Standard' Pack.(because 1 / 0.1 =10)
0.1:1 HeartGold & SoulSilver, Unleashed, Undaunted, Triumphant, Call of Legends
0.2:1 Charizard-Themed Avatar Collection Box
0.67:1 Black and White (Please note this discount may not apply to certain '*' rated cards)
0.8:1 Packs: Noble Victories, Plasma Freeze(Please note this discount may not apply to certain '*' rated cards)
1:1 Packs (1): Dark Explorers, Dragons Exalted, Dragon Vault, Boundaries Crossed
1:1 Pack (2): Plasma Storm, Next Destinies, Plasma Blast, Dewford League Bundle, Mauville League, Lavaridge League, 2015 Petalburg Gym Season, 2015 Fortree Gym Season (These packs may not be accepted at 1:1 for '*' rated or HGSS-Era cards)
1.25:1 Packs: Roaring Skies, Rustboro League (These packs may not be accepted at a 1.25:1 ratio for '*' rated or HGSS-Era cards)
1.5:1 Packs: Emerging Powers, Furious Fists, Phantom Forces, Primal Clash, Double Crisis (These packs aside Emerging Powers are not accepted for '*' rated cards)
2:1 Packs: Flashfire, Legendary Treasures, XY (These packs are not accepted for '*' rated cards)
Other Tournament Chests are accepted as trade-in for 0.5 value Trainers/Rares.
Trade Veto: We will try and help you with whatever we can... but due to the increasing rarity of these cards and changes to the trading system, we withhold the right to veto (reject) any orders for cards from HS-NV, even if they are listed on the front page.
The Top Cut Trading Inc. Value Guide is the largest and most comprehensive Value Guide available; featuring our trade values for all notable Pokemon, Trainers and Energy (as well as value ranges for most unlisted cards).
Our Value Guide also features within itself the most detailed list of available Promo cards (as well as a reference guide to currently unobtainable cards) as well as a large exclusive section dedicated to the rare HGSS-era cards.
To see our guides for Gameplay Items (Coins, Sleeves & Deck Boxes), then please head down below the Guidelines section of the thread to the Gameplay Corner. The list of Unobtainables, and other points of reference are located there also.
