    eBay Bidder Abbreviations Changed

    Has anyone else noticed this, that the abbreviation on the bidding list is now different from the bidder history page? I battle against i**k a lot, but hadn't seen their name for awhile, but when I checked out this top bidder, that's who it actually was.

    COMC Black Friday

    Alright player collectors, how are we faring this year. I've grabbed around 20 cards this week, nothing super special. After 3 or so years of this it's becoming slim pickings.

    Max Bid vs Final Price - Biggest Difference You've Had

    What auction did you win where the difference between your max bid and what you won it for was the greatest? In other words, what was your greatest steal compared to what you were prepared to pay. Mine, I bid $2000.01 on an RJ card, thinking it would end at ~$1,200 if my competitor was active...

    When A Player Collector Finds THE Superfractor...

    ..He takes a lot of pictures and writes a (relatively) short story. In late 2013 I revived my interest in collecting Randy Johnson cards. From 2000-2004 I collected his cards on eBay, Yahoo Auctions and the old Beckett collector-to-collector trading platform whose name I cannot recall. As I...

    Dynasty - The Illusion of Scarcity

    Not knocking this year's Dynasty at all, I think it turned out far superior to last year's. In fact, I spent more on my '15 Dynasty 1/1 than on any single card I've ever bought. But keeping track of all the cards I came up with a nice visual example of the false scarcity these card companies...

    2015 Topps TEK Thread

    Alright player collector Tekkers, what's the verdict? My thoughts: - the static background (the 2 color thick bars exploding from the middle) is much better than last year, it's more solid and doesn't blend in/run into the different background patterns. - I don't like that they reused 4...

    Gross Margins on Boxes/Cases?

    Just a pure curiosity question because I've never actually known the answer, what are authorized dealers making on full MSRPs on new wax boxes, say from Topps? I work in the grocery industry & we are typically shooting for around 22%GP [ (retail-cost)/retail ]. Can a dealer give me just a basic...

    eBay Card Bought & Relisted by Buyer - Really??

    Original griffeyfan24 auction for a 1998 Donruss Crusade Randy Johnson RED #9 /25 & PSA 10. He had been listing it for $5K & doing his normal 80% selling tactic, I think the card was always around $1,200 when listed. Well it shows that on 10/06 he SOLD IT for $5,250 straight up, no offer just...

    Offer Count on eBay Auctions Gone?

    I can no longer see on BINOBO auctions anything saying [2 offers] etc currently and am wondering if I'm in a small rolllout test group or if this change is fully realized? I looked at ever offers-accepted auction on 2014 Supreme and not 1 offer showed. I then made an offer I knew would get...

    Topps Ring & Trophy "Relic" Cards

    As I watch all the Topps Update 'relic' cards flood eBay, I'm amazed at how coveted these cards are to sellers when setting starting prices. This isn't piece of a game used jersey from an All-Star game. It's not even a jersey from a batting practice photo op at an All-Star game. It's not even a...

    Accuracy of PSA/DNA "Authenticated" Autos?

    I have 50+ Randy Johnson autos from 1997 to present and each and everyone of them no more than a standard deviation off if this handwriting style: So when I see an encased auto CERTIFIED by PSA like this one i squint my eyes and have a befuddled look on my face. I am no handwriting expert...
