Ebay Collecting Truths

Rate this Entry
Some generalizations I've learned in my years of buying on Ebay.

  1. If an autograph auction has to say the authentication company is one of the best in the business, it’s not.
  2. If the description says the card is NrMT-MT or better, you’ll be lucky to get it in NrMT-MT.
  3. If a set or lot of vintage says NrMT on average, the star cards are no better than EX.
  4. It the auction doesn’t say on-card auto, it’s a sticker.
  5. If the auction says it “might” be a 1/1, it’s not.
  6. If the Buy It Now listing has a Best Offer attached, you can probably get it for half.
