HOW DOES COLLECTIBLE CONSIGNMENT WORK?
Trading Card Boxes & Cases
Due to the volatile trading card and rapid fluctuation in price, all trading card sales are final. However, in some cases, we may accept returns if the request is made on the same day of package delivery. All items must have their factory seal intact and be in its original condition. If you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us immediately so we can help rectify the situation.
To ensure the value and integrity of our autographed items, all memorabilia sales are final. All of our autographed items come certified with an SCC COA or a COA from a recognized leader in sports memorabilia and autograph authentication.
We only accept graded cards for consignment. Items will be listed within 3 weeks of receiving them after receiving your graded slabs back from our grading partners (SGC, BGS, PSA). However, orders of under 50 cards will typically go up within 2 weeks. If the order is over 50 cards it may take 3-4 weeks to get everything listed but it may be processed in batches over multiple weeks.
Payouts are based on INDIVIDUAL card sales prices and are applied to each individual item not the total sales. PayPal payouts are made within 2 business days after the request is made and are based on available balance. Check payouts will be mailed within 5 business days after the request is made and are based on the available balance – please note these are subject to a $10 fee as we send them priority with tracking.
Sending us a list of which collectible assets you want sold is required to do so and we will give both you and us a copy of what items we are selling for you. If there are multiple SGC, BGS, PSA 8s of the same card or “misses” we reserve the right to lot these items versus sell individually. If we determine most cards in an order will not receive bids, we reserve the right to return the order. We will contact you before returning. Please note most cards should sell over $50 and average $100 to take advantage of our services.
Unsold Items: Every item will be listed at either “Buy Now” for a price we set with the customer or “Auction” starting at $50 minimum reserve amount. Any item valued at over $10,000.00 that goes unsold will be kept in house and relisted for the same fees within 90 days at no additional expense to the customer.
While we only sell graded collectibles, we will consider some memorabilia – signed baseballs, jerseys etc., however, please reach out before submitting as these require approval. We will not sell magazines, books, dolls etc. We will list fixed price for customers if the item sells consistently over $1,000 – we will do up to 10 cards – and an auto decline/ auto accept number is required.
Condition requirements: cards are in at least nm/mt condition; cards are not altered in any way, shape, or form.
(Zero Strike Policy) Under no circumstances are you permitted to bid on your own auctions. If you are caught doing this, we will no longer accept cards from you.

HOW DO I PURCHASE HOBBY CARTEL DIGITAL COLLECTIBLE NFTs?
To collect Hobby Cartel NFTs, all you need is a Hobby Cartel NFT account to buy them. If you have an account, simply login and find a Hobby Cartel NFT or Pack for sale. When setting up your account, include the URL to your NFT as well as your public crypto wallet ID address. This is important if you purchased a rare edition NFT that grants you access to special privileges beyond the standard Hobby Cartel physical products. This is how we verify and upgrade your account. If you need further support, please reach out to a HobbyCartel of the HobbyCartel’s Token team in the support channel of our Discord.
When you purchase an Hobby Cartel Digital Collectible you will receive an NFT (Non-Fungible Token) badge proving verified ownership of this exclusive token on the Ethereum Blockchain. You must provide a valid wallet address to receive your NFT. Shortly after purchasing, your NFT (ERC1155) will transfer to your crypto wallet. If you purchase with a credit card, and do not want to receive your exclusive NFT which unlocks access to value over the lifetime of your account, you can decline at point of purchase.
If you don’t have an ETH crypto wallet and want to set one up, please follow/double-check these steps if you are not familiar with blockchain transactions to verify successful transfer:
1.) Provide the Hobby Cartel team member your public ETH wallet address. MetaMask is the preferred wallet, and you can find steps to do so here.
2.) Make sure you have enough ETH to pay for the transaction including GWEI (gas fees).
3.) The Hobby Cartel team will send the Digital Collectible (NFT)to the public address you provided and will provide proof via Etherscan.
4.) We recommend you use the MetaMask Mobile App, because NFTs are not currently visible on the Chrome browser extension for MetaMask.
5.) To verify, select Collectibles → Add Collectibles (If you do not already see your NFT in your wallet).
6.) If still uncertain the transfer was successful, enter the NFT address and collectible ID and your NFT will appear under the Collectibles tab on your MetaMask wallet.

WHAT ARE DIGITAL COLLECTIBLES?
Hobby Cartel NFTs are digital collectibles on the blockchain. Each NFT is created by Hobby Cartel, but truly owned by fans that collect them.
NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token”, which is simply a unique digital item. For technical folks: Hobby Cartel NFTs are ERC 721 tokens, the most popular token standard compatible with many platforms including Ethereum.
