As a courtesy to its members, CBCS allows the selling and trading of books and comic related art on its forum. ANY SALE OR TRADE IS DONE AT THE BUYER'S OWN RISK. Neither CBCS, Administration, nor Moderation will act as arbitrators in the case of a dispute. Disputes need to worked out between the buyer and seller.

The selling guidelines are as follows:

● Only CBCS, CGC, raw books, comic related art, or other comic related items are allowed to be sold or traded on the forum.

Amended Dec. 6th, 2019. In regards to advertising a sale on another site by posting a link, only links to CGC and CBCS slabs are allowed. In other words, no linking to any sales of PGX slabs. You can also provide links to other comic book related items such as raw comics, art, statues, figurines, etc.

Amended June 30th, 2021. In regards to linking to items listed for sale offsite, only links to sales or consignment sites that offer an auction type or shopping cart service shall be permitted. For example, My Comic Shop, eBay,, Shortboxed, and ComicLink would be the type of links permitted. FaceBook, Instagram, Craigslist, YouTube, and similar sites would be the type of offsite links that would not be permitted. The reasoning behind this amendment is that these type of listings typically do not provide the amount of information required to sell on the forum and are therefore seen as problematic to both buyer and seller with little recourse for either party should the deal hit a snag.

● Images must be posted for all books or art offered for sale or trade. If a group of books is offered for sale or trade (Avengers 168-175, for example), then a group shot of the lot is acceptable.

● Grades must accompany any books for sale or trade. An estimated grade range ("This book is a FN/FN+" ) is acceptable as long as it isn't excessive ("This book is between GD and NM" ). A grade range for comic book lots is acceptable ("These books are in the VF range" or "These books average between FN and VF" ).

● Prices must be listed on all books or art for sale, either individually or as a group.

● Shipping costs must be stated.

● A return policy must be stated and include a specific time frame. Saying "Returns accepted within 7 days of receipt" is acceptable. Stating "No returns allowed" is also acceptable.

● Acceptable forms of payment must be stated (PayPal, MO, check, for example). Requesting payment via PayPal Personal/Friends & Family IS PROHIBITED. PayPal Personal was not intended to be used for business transactions.

● Limit the number of sales threads to as few as possible. Don't list five different books in five separate sales threads. Place them all in a single thread.

● A sales thread cannot be edited if there is a pending or uncompleted sale.

● Raffles, Mystery Boxes, Digital Code sales, and Pre-sales are prohibited.
