Thread: Making money with sports cards

Like gps said, the only people who make any real money in this hobby is the people that sell the boxes. I've only made my money back on 2 out of the 30 or 40 boxes that I've opened.

I don't think that is completely the case. There is money to be made with flipping cards, or larger card deals. I know people that make a good amount of money doing that. There are few that do enough volume to do it full time, but the main thing is that you need a network of people to buy seperate things, like a few high end guys, a few mid level guys, guys that want just jerseys and lower end autos, and then dollar box and below stuff.

Money can be made, however, most money will only be made if you can hold onto a card for 5 years plus.
One thing you could do is look for collections or large lots on Craigslist or eBay and break them down and sell individually, which will probably only get you profit if the cards are pre-1980s (unless it is 1986-87 Fleer Basketball)
