    Simple trading ettiquete. For the new and the old

    Due to some recent experiences, I feel it is necessary to post this just as a simple reminder to anyone that trades here or anywhere else.
    These aren't LAWS of the land, just excellent guidelines for trading.

    #1. Use penny sleeves, top-loaders (hard cases), team bags or one SMALL piece of tape on the top of case.

    #2. Use bubble mailers and DC# for every trade. Anything over $100 should have sig conformation and/or insurance.

    #3. Send all trades within 48 hours of making a trade, including Sundays. Unless you state in the trading process "It will be X amount of days before I can send"

    #4. Do your best to complete all trades. Don't back out after agreeing or posting a trade. If you feel you cannot/will not complete the trade contact a mod ASAP.

    #5. Be up front about the condition of all cards involved in trades. ALWAYS!

    #6. NEVER try to trade a card unless it is in hand. You have it right now, not on the way from Ebay, Naxcom, another trade, etc.

    #7. If you feel "low-balled" dont take offense. It was just an offer. A simple "no thank you" or "that wont do" works just fine.

    Hope this is helpful to newer members, and a quick reminder for even "seasoned" traders.
    Good luck to you all in your pack/box breaks, Ebay wins, and trades.

    Take care,

    Cody

    Figured you may want to add that in order to use D/C the item has to be at least 3/4" thick.

    Nice tips BTW

    Thats not exactly true. The rule was lifted last year some time, but some USPS workers are either ignorant, just dont know, or dont care.

    So in order to make a package thicker use some excess bubble wrap, old bubble mailer pieces balled up, or cardboard chunk folded lightly in half.

    Would also like to add when a member asks you to send first please dont be insulted. Its just the rules of the board provided you have less then 10 feedback. We all had to go through it to build our rep.

    Thanks
