    Damaged cards

    Do you care about the quality of the cards you play? I know that, if you drop cards from your deck, you'd want them to be in good condition for trading and/or selling, but what about personally? For instance, I sometimes buy "damaged" cards at a lower price online to save money, even though I know it won't be able to be sold/traded, afterward, and even one little crease can keep it from being bought. So, what do you do, in this case?

    It depends honestly. For me, if it was a high foil card that is worth something on the market that was extremely damaged, I die a little on the inside but will probably purchase said card. There's also people who play their cards without sleeves, and my soul dies a bit more on the inside when I see this.

    I don't even like my sleeves being damaged, I shrug to think about damaged cards.
    I don't post a lot, but I read everything in this forum. EVERYTHING.

    I would prefer that they don't be damaged, though I don't mind too much. Such cards either have history or were vandalized.

    Even when I sleeve 'em, foil cards where I am have this annoying tendency towards warping -- part of why I actually adore cards being released as Common or Rare rather than a higher rarity. Structure Deck reprints are a godsend, I tell you! ;_;

    Were I still actively playing IRL, I might be tempted to try double-sleeving and see where that gets me (that is, if it ends up saving my poor cards from warping).

    I've tried double-sleeving before. All it does is traps any moisture that seeps into the sleeve and makes it impossible to dry the card off.

    Also, anyone surprised when a damaged copy of a card still fetches a high price? I bought 2 damaged Mound of the Bound Creator - one of which arrived with all four corners clipped and lots of wear on the edges - and they still cost me like $3-$4 a pop (they're normally $5-$7)

    You've got American prints right? They tend to do that.

    I don't mind the warping, since it's usually not that bad and doesn't damage the card to the point of making them unsellable. Only issue I have with them is shuffling with them, but that's a minor issue.

    I don't like it when people intentionally destroy cards that they don't like; I remember, a long while back, some jackass scrub took a highly sought-after foil card (I forgot what the card was, except that it was a trap), and tore it up, just because he didn't like it and didn't want to trade it away to someone else. That pissed off a TON of duelists at the event this occurred at, myself included...

    I also don't like it when people draw over the artwork of their cards to "customize" them; I know that extensive editing to a card makes it unusable and illegal, but I'm not sure how far that goes...

    Yeah, there was one bloke at my store who tended to do that. Bit of a jackass, although I did have intelligent conversation with him.
