Yeah, I'm not buying anything particularly expensive, so the pricey sellers won't affect me much.  I would rather buy fifty 40-cent cards of a variety of players than one $20 card of a guy I don't care about just because it finishes a set.  I don't mean that as a criticism of anyone else's methods of collecting at all.

I keep a running "watch list" and check it periodically because again like the shopping cart you don't "own" the cards on that list until you buy them. The difference is cards stay on your watch list until you take them off. Where with the shopping cart (like at other sites) there is a time limit after x number of days items are automatically removed. If an item is sold while on you watch list the price will change to "not for sale" and then you have to look for another copy of that card if you ever want to own it.

I need to add more credit to my account so I can buy the cards off my watch list and stop the pratice of keeping a large watch list. IN early Dec I found one of my white whales at COMC so I snatched that puppy up. It was $8 but what the heck I had to have it and now it is patiently sitting in my "Items ready to ship" stack but all by its lonesome. Another reason to buy up some more cards off my list.

While you are there why don't you buy some of my duplicates. Nothing is higher than 75 cents. I could use the funds, lol.

I have bought a few cards on COMC but have never sent any in for sale. Was thinking about doing that since they do post your itemson Amazon and eBay. Need to check on the fees to have cards sold there.

Trying to acquire one card for every for every set, insert, parralle, minor, euro, team issue, oddball etc sets produced for Hockey. Been an interesting project. 3414 different cards so far.

The basic fee is a quarter per card. That's why you never see anything there less than that. Minimum of $25 or 100 cards. You can pay more to get it posted faster and some big ticket cards are more as well. Since I don't plan to sell any of them I didn't pay much attention.

if you send them a batch in (any amount of cards) the standard rate which is the slowest amount of time for them to process is .25cents a card and take 6-8wks to process and post under your name. which means....as they process they take out .25 for each card you send.. if you have a card that you want to sell for $1.. you set the price for $1 and it post for $1.25 ... the quicker process fees are like .50 and $1 with process less than two weeks-- sometimes its just not worth it when you consered shipping cost you pay to get it there. i have i think of 600 cards now on there.. made close to $300 the past 6 mos (?) ... just send in things i don't or want to buy what i do. i even got lucky and bought a port (someones entire collection there) for a decent price, just to resell ... >>> the way i look at it, someone is always looking for something.. even if its just a filler. and it lets me get what i want. have fun and good luck
