  1. A sale thread must contain cards that are CSG certified or raw only.
  2. List your cards only once, and in the appropriate sub-forum. Incorrectly placed threads or cards posted in multiple places will be moved. 
  3.  A sale thread must be an exclusive Boards-only offer. If the card is offered for sale through another venue such as a personal site, dealer site, eBay, etc., then it should not be offered here. If a card is offered elsewhere, it should be offered in the Sales Advertising board.
  4. A sale thread must list specific cards with purchase prices. It is acceptable to bulk price, and/or note that package discounts may be available, but you must list a starting price that you will sell the item for.
  5. Either a scan or an estimated grade must be listed with each card offered for sale.
  6. Estimated shipping costs, times, and methods must be listed.
  7. Forms of payments must be listed. PayPal "goods and services" is an acceptable payment method, but Personal PayPal, aka "friends and family," is not allowed. It is also against the rules to ask for Personal PayPal via private message.
  8. Your post cannot violate the terms of service for your payment methods, such as posting no surcharges for accepting PayPal, or discounts for other methods.
  9. A return policy must be stated with any time limits indicated. It is acceptable to say "no time limit" or "no returns," or have time limits that vary by reason for a return, such as "30 day return for any reason. No time limit for returns not as described.” But time limits must be stated.
  10. If posting a trading thread you must list a dollar value price for the card that you will accept in trade value, and you must put "TRADE ONLY" in the title of your thread if you will not accept money.
  11. Threads are allowed to be bumped three times total and only one full day after falling off of the front page. This does not include "sold" notices, or truly useful informational updates. A post that inappropriately bumps a sale thread and is then deleted can still be seen by CGC.
  12. No spamming. Group your for sale items into one thread in each sub-forum. Attempts to take up front page real estate by creating multiple threads are not allowed.
  13. Links to outside sites for any purpose involving purchasing the offered cards are not allowed.
  14. Raffles are not allowed.
  15. Mystery boxes are not allowed. You must list everything you are selling exactly as the buyer will receive it.
  16. Pre-sale announcements belong in the Announcements thread. Do not start your own thread in the sales sub-forums for your sale until you are ready to post and sell your cards. Posting a single card now and the rest at a stated time is considered an announcement, and is not allowed.

 

For a violation of rules #4-10, a warning will be issued stating the violation. If the violation is not corrected within a 24 hour period of the warning, the sale thread may be removed.

For violation of rules #1-3 and #11-17, the sales thread will be removed.

Repeated violations may result in a point assignment.

BUYERS: Prompt responses must be made to buy requests made through the Boards either by posting in the sale thread or sending a private message. When you reply to a sale thread indicating that you'll buy something, you must indicate what card you are buying. If someone else is more specific than you are, your offer may not be considered valid by the seller.

Buyers may not post in a way that hurts a sellers chance of a sale, or discredits their reputation.  A few examples would be saying this card is priced too high, or a cheaper copy can be found at xxxxx.  Another example would be, I don't like this person, and would never buy from him/her.   There may be a few exceptions for known scammers.    We can tell the difference between a joke and a rude or unnecessary comment.    A decision either way will be at the discretion of the moderator.  Violation of this rule will result in points added to your account, and possibly restricting your ability to post on the forum.
