Lot of Cards on Facebook

This is a really cool group with a wide range of cards from vintage to newer cards.  All sports and even non sports.  Can be cards, books, magazines, memorabilia and anything that you think is a related to being a collectable and appropriate for our audience.   We only allow auctions, buy it now listings and deal or no deal listings.  At this time we are not doing "fire sales, razzes, or anything at all out of the scope of auctions or buy it now.  

What we seek not to put in this group are Vintage Basketball cards and Vintage Football cards as we have other tremendous groups for that.   A lot of our members of this group are also members of both of the other two groups.

First off we are a clean and fun group for people to feel safe to even sell or buy with their kids.   Any negative comments, swears, obscene photos are grounds for immediate swift removal from the group.    To request to join the group click here:

Feel free to refer your friends and especially buyers of cards to the group. 

 

PLEASE READ OUR RULES BEFORE POSTING. ►►
Our rules are meant to keep things running smoothly. We strive to be a Safe, Fun, Positive place for collectors to interact. So Please ... No profanity, drama, rude or negative comments. Respect everyone and keep it positive. If you see anything that needs an admin's attention, please PM one. If you think a price is way too high, or a condition is over stated, or a card looks altered ... Don't comment in their post ... simply PM an Admin or Moderator.
----------------------------------------
● BUMPING: Limit of 2 "bumps" per day. A 3rd bump is allowed if the item has bids. The goal is to give equal time near the top of the feed, so please consider the timing of your bumps. (Meaning; don't post 5 new items, and bump your old posts all at the same time). If an item gets no responses after 7 days, do not bump it .. without lowering the price.
--------------------------------------------
●: This group is ideally used for vintage and newer cards from 2000 on up. However, if you have nice lots of 1980's and 1990's they are fine as well. Goal is to allow multiple sports and non sports.
----------------------------------------------
● PHOTOS / SCANS: Post LARGE, CLEAR pictures with cards REMOVED from plastic holders (top loaders, screw downs, binder sheets, etc). They produce a glare and can hide minor flaws. Always post front & back pics for single cards (or any lots under 8 cards). If selling large sets or lots in binder sheets, remove a few of the money cards and take individual pics of those too, to better show off card quality.
-
● SELLING / TRADING: Always post picture(s), card description(s), card condition(s), payment methods accepted, shipping charges and your asking price (or trade value $ amount). No un-priced "taking offers" type posts are allowed. All items need to be shipped with tracking. No PWE's.
-
● CARD CONDITIONS: Post an accurate description so people don't have to ask questions. (Card year, set, card numbers, condition, etc). Use the known hobby conditions; PR, FR, GD, VG, VG/EX, EX, EX/MT, NM, NM/MT, MINT, Gem Mint. ("Nice" and "Great" are not conditions). If you're not familiar with card conditions, we have a document in our "files" section that shows examples.
-
● FILLING NEEDS LISTS / PIECING OUT LARGE SETS & LOTS: Sellers can post sets or large lots they're piecing out (selling off individually) to help fill collectors "needs lists." Sellers should post a few pictures and a general description of what they have (ie; "Filling needs lists for 1974 Topps. Conditions vary, mostly EX/MT-ish"). Sellers should organize their cards prior to posting and be prepared to PM prices, conditions and pics to those who request them. Also, to be fair, responded to any inquiries in the order they were received, within reason. (Meaning; don't skip the first 5 guys smaller lists and sell everything to the 6th guy. Yes, that would be easier for you, but since you chose to fill needs lists, it creates animosity from the first 5 guys that took their time to respond with their lists). Also, please use PM's to handle communication & negotiations so you don't monopolize the main feed with comments.
------------------------------------------------
● TRADE LISTS: Feel free to post your "Needs lists" or "Trade Cards Available" lists.
------------------------------------------------
● BUYER AND SELLER COMMUNICATION: Sellers should "Tag" the buyer/winner in the post & PM them with item & payment info. Buyers should pay ASAP (or communicate intentions). When Buyer pays; PM the Seller that you've "Paid." Sellers need to PM tracking number once the item ships. Most issues arise on Facebook because of poor communication. Don't look at a PM then not reply with anything. The other person can see that you did that and it just raises questions. Also, don't jump to conclusions just because someone hasn't responded quickly. Not everyone checks their Facebook messages daily.
------------------------------------------------
● PAYMENTS: Check Sellers post (prior to bidding) for the methods they except. Paypal is the typical way transactions are done. If you can't do Paypal, it's important to mention that prior to buying or selling. Payments need to be made (or mailed) within 72 hours (3 business days) ... unless prior arrangements were made. Communication is the key to smooth transactions. If you're mailing a payment, it needs to be mailed with tracking ... to protect everyone.
-
● PAYPAL: Always use Paypal "Goods and Services." Sellers are NOT allowed to ask for Paypal "Friends and Family.' It's not safe. You're not protected, and it's the #1 way that people get ripped off.
-
● TRACKING: It's required to use tracking on ALL items shipped. It's free on all USPS packages. If you fail to provide tracking, and they say the item never arrived ... you're obligated to refund.
-------------------------------------------------
● AUCTIONS:  24 Hour Countdown auctions (where each new bid extends the auction 24 more hours). Use the same posting and picture guidelines as mentioned above (large, clear front & back pics .. taken outside of plastic holders).
 (We use Eastern Time Zone if none is mentioned). Post a minimum starting bid (no higher than 85% of the real value please), and minimum bid increments ($ .25, $.50, or $1.00, etc. The default is $1 if none are mentioned.) No hidden reserves. Maximum of 5 new auction posts per day (every 24 hours). 


24 HOUR COUNTDOWN AUCTION FORMAT: Start post with ** A U C T I O N ** Post a minimum starting bid (no higher than 85% of the real value please). Minimum bid increments are $1. Mention; "Auction Ends 24 hours after last bid." No hidden reserves. Maximum of 5 new auction posts per day (every 24 hours).
-
● BIDDING: Bids are placed in the comments of the post. The minimum bid increment is $1 (unless $ .25 or $ .50 is listed in the post). No bid increments under $ .25 are allowed. NO DELETING OF BIDS (unless you contact an Admin first).

-----------------------------------------------
● SHIPPING: Always ship packages WITH TRACKING. PM the buyer the tracking number after it's mailed. Always protect the condition of cards when packaging. (Top loaders, heavy cardboard "sandwiches", bubble wrap, boxes .. whatever is needed to completely protect the cards). There's nothing worse than getting damaged cards because of sloppy, careless shipping methods. No PWE's.
-
● SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF U.S.: All shipping charges are for the continental US only. If you're outside of the U.S. you need to make arrangements with sellers prior to bidding or buying, and expect to pay the extra difference. NO PWE SHIPMENTS ALLOWED OR SHOULD BE ADVERTISED IN THE POST. THIS IS FOR BUYERS PROTECTION.
-------------------------------------------------
● SECURITY: Use your best judgment and protect yourself in all transactions. We can't fully screen everyone that joins this group, and all transactions are at your own risk. Never send Paypal by "friends and family". Paypal's buyer guarantee only applies when you pay through their "Goods and Services" method. Never trade with anyone you're unfamiliar with, without looking into them a little bit first (ask for references, ask an Admin, check the "negative feedback list" in our "Files" section. Check their name in one of the scammers/feedback groups. Search their name for other posts outside of our group, etc.) Please contact an Admin if you ever have any problems, or see anything that seems sketchy.
-------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
● NON PAYS: If payment is not made within 72 hours the seller can relist, cancel or offer to the underbidder. Non payers are typically banned from the group and names are shared with other groups and put on negative feedback lists. Communication is the key to resolving issues.
-------------------------------------------------
● DELETING POSTS: No deleting of bids, posts or comments (unless you contact an Admin first). If you accidentally enter an incorrect bid amount, contact an Admin before deleting it. Don't delete old posts. We want the records to be there. If your item's no longer for sale, simply edit header & add "sold." I'll occasionally delete old posts, so if you need a record, take a screen shot.
---------------------------------------------------
● WAX PACKS & WAX BOX SALES of vintage and Modern cards are allowed. However, if they're not factory sealed (or wrapped / graded by a tpg), you must accept refunds if the buyer feels they were tampered with.
● AUTOGRAPHED cards and items are allowed. However, if they are not authenticated by a reputable company, you must accept refunds if they are proven to be fakes.
-----------------------------------------------------
● NO SPAM, LINKS or outside ADVERTISING without Admin pre-approval. We do have a "File" thread named; "Links to: Other Facebook Groups, Websites, Stores, Ebay Profiles, etc." where you can post your links. Please limit your personal bumps of that thread to twice a month. No non-hobby related links.
● NO CHARITY, Help a sick friend, or fundraising type posts are allowed.
● NO REPRINT CARDS unless certified, or card has "reprint" printed on it.
● NO BOX BREAKS (unless approved by Admin).
● NO RAZZES, Mystery lots or Contests (without Admin approval).
-----------------------------------------------------
And lastly, this is a hobby.... Have fun and enjoy your collection!
