Terms and Conditions
The T206 Society will be run and operated on two very simplistic rules: Respect for the T206 set as a whole, and most importantly, respect for your fellow collector. We will use very simplistic guidelines which all involved parties will be required to abide by. Most importantly, however, you are required to have fun!
Buying From T206 Society (Gallery/ Shop)
1.) To check out what is for sale go the to the Gallery tab located on your T206 Society toolbar and click “For Sale”, located second from the top.
2.) In the event that you have found a piece(s) that you wish to purchase or present an offer on, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, or click the red “Product Inquiry” button in the listing and we will contact you as soon as possible.
3.) Once a deal has been finalized you may send payment directly to the T206 Society, which will be held by the T206 Society until you have received your card(s) (in the event the piece is being mailed by the seller and not directly from the T206 Society). Delivery will be confirmed by a tracking number, which is mandatory at the T206 Society.
4.) Payment may be made via personal check or instant transfer to the direct account of the T206 Society and you will be notified personally by the T206 Society once payment has cleared.
5.) There will be no Buyers Premium.
Selling On T206 Society (Gallery/ Shop)
1.) If you are interested in selling a piece(s) with the T206 Society you may contact us directly at email@example.com. We will contact you as soon as possible.
2.) The process of selling a piece via the T206 Society will require you to submit an inventory list, along with your desired price, as well as quality front and back scans. We cannot stress enough the importance of a quality scan, as this can make all the difference to a prospective buyer. If possible, please send scans at maximum size and quality so that the viewer may get the most detailed look at the card.
3.) Once you have listed a piece(s) with the T206 Society you are free to sell your piece(s) via other means (i.e. auction houses, net54, ebay etc.), however you will be required to notify us of this as soon as possible so that we may end your listing with the T206 Society in a prompt manner.
4.) You will not be required to pay anything to the T206 Society unless you have sold a piece(s).
Sellers Fee Structure (Gallery/ Shop)
The fee charged by the T206 Society will be based upon the amount you sell your piece(s) for. The fee will be based upon each sale.
A consignor will be charged 5% of the final sale price of each card sold via the the T206 Society. However, if you are re-selling a piece which you purchased directly from the T206 Society the fee will be reduced to 3.5%.
Shipping Process (Gallery/ Shop)
1.) A seller must determine their shipping cost for each individual listing.
2.) The listed and final price of any card should include any shipping and insurance fees.
3.) All items must be shipped safely and securely, the way a T206 deserves to be cared for. A tracking number must be provided to T206 Society as soon as is reasonably possible so that we may send it to the buyer in a prompt manner.
4.) The package will require a signature, though the buyer may choose to waive this right. We highly recommend that all packages be signed for as some pieces can be truly irreplaceable. Additional insurance will be the responsibility of the buyer unless the seller should choose to cover this expense.
5.) T206 Society will in no way be held responsible for lost or damaged items. While shipping services typically get the job done, insurance can truly be a crucial element to the security of all involved parties.
Chain Of Command
For our most trusted and familiar vendors, we will allow for them to hold and ship their own pieces while the T206 Society will reserve the funds for the seller until the item has arrived safely to the buyer, ensuring protection to all parties.
1.) Once a buyer has agreed to purchase a piece via the T206 Society, the listing will be marked as “Sale Pending”.
2.) The buyer will send the funds to the T206 Society.
3.) Once the funds have cleared, T206 Society will contact the seller who may now ship the card to the buyer.
4.) A tracking number as well as a signature will be required. The buyer may choose to waive the signature, but will assume the responsibility of any lost or damaged items as a result of this.
5.) Once a package has been confirmed as delivered to the buyer the T206 Society will release the funds to the seller, minus the appropriate fees listed above (5%), which will include a full invoice upon request.
Odds And Ends
1.) T206 Society will be listing our personal pieces, however we will make note of this in every single listing as to avoid any conflict of interest. (***This Listing Brought To You Courtesy Of T206 Society***)
2.) While as of 2014, we are now offering raw, ungraded cards, please note our previous stance on the issue, and understand that our hatred of fraud will always remain, and we will go far out of our way to keep our members safe at all times: All pieces must be professionally graded, as we will make our very best best attempt to avoid selling any altered or counterfeit cards, which may appear to be genuine to the naked eye. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however we feel it is our duty to sell cards which are guaranteed to be authentic and unaltered by a professional grading company, and that are clearly marked when they have in fact been altered in any way, and nothing else. At T206 Society, we are 110% against altering cards in order to deceive a prospective buyer.
3.) T206 Society will NOT quote data from any of the grading companies “Population Reports”.
4.) Use of the site and services of T206 Society are “Caveat Emptor”.
5.) If you are under the age of 18, you must have a parent or guardians permission to conduct business with T206 Society.
6.) Buyers outside of the United States will be subject to additional shipping and handling fees, which will be based on what the post office charges.
7.) Invoices will be sent via email, with paper invoices available upon request.
8.) T206 Society reserves the right to maintain listings/ images of sold cards which came from the T206 Society collection.
