Next To Impossible To Sell On Here..
Is it just me? Over the past couple of days I have had offers on my Oscar Taveras Gold and a couple of other cards and they are all lower than recent ended auctions on ebay. Does it have something to do with my feedback? The 1 disputed trade that I have that was cleared up and wound up being nothing? I have no idea. It seems that people only seem to be interested in things if they pay lower than market value which makes no sense to me at all. I mean if you're not interested in paying market value for a card, why bother messaging me that you want it? A little bit frustrating there.

I'm guessing that the reason they need your cards is because they are not willing to pay the Ebay price so they need to make an offer lower than that. If they are buying for PC I don't have a problem with "lowball" offers. The cards just might not be worth as much to them as they are to someone else. On the other hand, if they are looking to get it cheaper so they can make more on it when they resell it that just steams me to no end.Steve Schindler
Collect what you want to collect. Collect players and cards that you like. Collect what you can afford. Collect for you, not to try to impress someone else. If you do this you will much more likely to enjoy the hobby and stay with it.

There can be a small price difference due to not having to pay ebay fee's.
That said, set your price and either accept or reject, easier to window shop & tire kick here :)Perfection is not attainable. But if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence.

problem is ebay is an AUCTION...for the most part....and why would someone buy from you at the same price they could buy from a guy with hundreds of feedbacks knowing he is legit...not to mention on ebay they get ebay bucks as well..so there are a few more benefits to using ebay..in order to get an accurate average you must take every auction from that card ...not just the highest and lowest of the last month like it sounds like your doing...players get hot..insert jeremy lin...you cant just take his highest and lowest prices during the linsanity craze...you must also take into account the days his cards didnt sell for 99 cents also lol....alot of people dont understand that the true average can only be found throughout the lifetime...hence why people pay or want to pay less then ebay

I am taking other things into consideration when it comes to the cards I am selling. The card I am referring to in my posts is an Oscar Taveras Gold/50 from Bowman Chrome 2011 and chances are his card could skyrocket next year if he makes it to the bigs. His card has also pretty steady in the $75 range for the past few months so to have a couple of offers in the $40 range is pretty insulting to be honest.
I also understand that a lot of collectors are just looking to move some of their cards for whatever price they can get, but I am not one of those people. The Taveras is one of the better cards in my collection and I am not looking to move it for the sake of moving it.

theres the price you want to sell for, the price i want to pay and somewhere in the middle is the actual true value lol
