    Pricing

    I guess one of my biggest questions would be how to price the cards. I might think they look good to me but somebody else may not think so. My biggest fear is that somebody buys one of my cards and feels like they over paid for the value they feel the card is worth. The other question if you all could help with is how does everyone collect or make payments is that done through Pay Pal? Or something similar.

    Thanks for anyone's help in getting me started and back into the hobby again.

    John

    Welcome, unless set fillers, my traders/sellers are 98%+ & a few were gradable, just like I would expect back. Many use paypal, some use money orders, some send cash for small deals, anything above $20 gets a money order from me

    John- Generally speaking, the expectation is that newer cards will be at least Near Mint. On vintage cards, it is better if you have access to a scanner. The PSA website has very specific grading definitions and visual representations.

    Welcome to the site.

    And PayPal is a very common way of paying for things. Quick, easy to use, and offers some protection as well. As for pricing, using places like eBay is good because it can give you a range of what prices people are paying for cards right now.

    I look at COMC.com and check prices there too. I will look at a book, as it is easier to go book to book.

    Just be honest and use a scanner. If it has a crease, say it. If the corners are dinged say it. I try to scan all of the cards in but on large trades it doesn't always work. I haven't traded as much as alot of people here, but I rarely have an issue with grades or conditions.

    I buy cards all the time, alot of us feel our cards are worth more than they really are, It's the hobby. If the book says $40, but I can buy it for $5 on-line, is it really worth $40? Especially if the corners are dinged . (I see a lot of new memorabilia cards that are thick, but are on soft cardboard where the corners are dinged out of the package or while being put into a sleeve!.)
