Terms

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Why am I being charged sales tax?
As a result of recent and ongoing legislation, most U.S. states now require businesses to collect and remit sales tax on online purchases made from their states. Regardless of where sellers are located, they are required to charge tax on internet orders if your state mandates it. Each state has different requirements and thresholds on what is taxed, and how much. Note that purchases shipped to or picked up in states that do not impose sales tax will not be subject to tax.

Thank you,
Rich

Condition of Items

The auctioneer is not responsible for the condition of the items sold. Coins are not graded by auctioneer. The auctioneer is NOT a coin Grader! Please use your own judgment to condition and grade of any item. It is very likely all raw coins have been cleaned in some fashion at one point of time during the life of the coin. We do not offer returns on any coin purchased due to grade or condition including cleaned or harshly cleaned coins. All coins we sell are sold "AS IS" without Guarantee or warranty of any kind. We do NOT accept returns for any reason. Including but not limited to buyers remorse. Once you bid on an Item or an item is bid on from your IP address it is your responsibility to pay for the purchase or purchases. Please keep in mind the only two Grading Company's that guarantee their grade is PCGS and NGC. Buyer beware of other Grading company's. Do not get this mixed up with the legitimate Grading Company's PCGS and NGC. Often third party grading company's will grade coins higher and will use names similar to the legitimate grading company's name, such as, PCGC, and NCG. For references go to coinauctionshelp.com. This site gives you names of legitimate and illegitimate Grading Companies. All coins we sell are sold "AS IS" without Guarantee or warranty of any kind from the auctioneer. The grading company who graded the coins is the party responsible for the grade not the auctioneer. We do not grade coins and we do not write the coin guides. We only relay information from said grading company's and price guides. It is solely the buyers responsibility to research these grading company's prior to bidding. Again, please ask questions before you bid. We do not own the coins we sell. All coins are sold on consignment. Therefore, due to our circumstances with the coins we sell we cannot accept returns.

The auctioneer is not responsible for the condition for any sports collectible items sold. We can not guarantee the condition, grade or value of any sports card. We also can not guarantee that cards have not been altered from their original state. If we know that a card has been altered, we will call that out in the description, however we do not have time to measure and inspect every card we sell and can not accept returns on cards that have been found to be altered. We will, however, guarantee that the sports cards we sell are authentic unless otherwise stated as a reprint or fake. Any card that is sold by us as genuine yet fails to pass the authentication process of PSA, Beckett, or SGC may be returned for the full purchase price within 90 days of the auction date. When we sell unopened boxes or packs of sports cards, we will call out any items in the description if we notice obvious signs of tampering, however we can not guarantee that any boxes or packs have not been tampered with and can not accept returns on any of these items. Any autographed items that are sold are non-returnable and authenticity of the items are not guaranteed by the auctioneer unless otherwise stated. If we are selling an autographed item, we believe it to be genuine unless otherwise stated, however, we will not guarantee such authenticity so please inspect the item and make the determination for yourself. In sports card sales, lots that are described as "sets" or as "complete sets" are not guaranteed to be 100% complete unless specifically stated. If a box comes to us and is marked as a "set", we do not check to see if every card is present. We do make sure that the key cards are present but we do not have the time to hand check every card of every set. Please rely upon the pictures to make a determination or valuation about the sports items we sell and please send any questions about the items prior to sale day so that we can have time to adequately research and answer your questions. We do not accept returns for any reason except for the above mentioned authenticity reasons.

The auctioneer is not responsible for the condition of any comic books that are sold. We can not guarantee the condition, grade or value of any comic. If we know that a comic has been altered from its original state, we will call that out in the description, however we can not guarantee that comics have not been altered. Additionally, we do not check every page in every comic book that we sell so we can not guarantee that comics don't have tears or clipped coupons, value stamps, pin-ups, etc. and we can not guarantee that other blemishes such as ink marks aren't in the book. Please rely upon the pictures to make a determination or valuation about the comic books we sell and please send any questions about the items prior to sale day so that we can have time to adequately research and answer your questions. All comics we sell are sold "AS IS" without guarantee or warranty of any kind from the auctioneer. We do not accept returns for any reason.

Thank you,
