    Yes, but so many forum users want "PayPal gift" to circumvent the fees. I ain't doing it.

    I hate selling on eBay (very very rarely do) but we all know there's certain cards which should be auctioned.

    Well, considering I posted a question yesterday regarding which Bowman cards they were on the thread you started to sell them, and you have not even bothered to answer, I can see why you would have problems selling on here.

    Same with me. My collecting focus is very narrow so there usually isn't much on there for me. I get hits on my Puckett buying thread every now and then.

    Then don't pay by gift. Most users are happy to accept goods. If they won't then stay away. Personally I always ask for goods

    The other problem I have is the PM's and responses. People will post or send a message asking for a lot price and then they don't respond ever or it takes forever. It pops up on the screen and says you have a message, if you ask for a price you should be able to respond immediately or within an hour or so. I have people not respond for 48 hours and expect to still have the same offer sitting there.

    Its the most annoying part of trying to sell here IMO.
    Always buying chrome slabs from 2012-2014 at up to 100% of ebay!

    Always buying raw chrome from 2013-2014 at up to 90% of ebay!

    All subject to players, condition, prices, sellers, among other variables.

    Yeah sorry, I rarely sell on here and i checked a few times after with no responses or pm.

    Anyway, I answered your post about the Springer cards.

    Like everything else it comes down to member base. The 'active' member base here is predominantly store (brick & mortar or otherwise) owners, prospectors, flippers, breakers/sellers, collectors no longer actively collecting, and eBay sellers looking to make a few bucks. Rounding that out are just a select few who would have no real opportunity to buy or sell here for what they need.

I've been a part of many deals on this site and I don't think any came from the transaction forum.
    What do you have left?

    I would agree with this.I have PM'd too many to count asking for if collector X has something I need, and then I never hear from then again.Does no one else get the "you have a new PM" pop up box when you log in anymore?Or they message back "I'll see what I have", and then I never hear from then again.<shrug>

    Yes, it does seem like transactions board is dominated by prospects.I've slowly lost interest in prospects other than the ones that play for my team.I don't even rip boxes of Bowman Draft anymore.

    I don't follow. Are you implying that this is how Burbank does their listings?

    I would love to buy more cards here, but here are my issues...

    - Terrible descriptions!! I do not want to look at every "Look at this steal!!" thread. Tell me what card you are selling in the description.

    - NO LISTS! NO PICS! NO PRICES! I won't even bother.

    - I am not a prospector. I only have PC stuff. I want to pay the lowest price possible. Not because I want to flip, but because it helps my dollars go further.

    - Very low diversification of available cards. I want Josh Hamilton, Michael Young, and HOFer autos. Those are not items listed too often and when they are I have to search like crazy to find them or I stumble upon them accidentally. I'd rather just search eBay or COMC.

    That's a lot of things to fix and I do not know if it can be done.
