It didn't take me long to realize that the selling value for cards at CheckOutMyCards is a lot different than it is over at eBay. Since shipping is lower, I'll pay a dollar or two more for a card at COMC than I will over on feeBay. Some things do baffle me though. I sold a limited autograph from the Basketball Draft case for $15 that didn't get a bid starting at .99¢ over on eBay. In fact, many of those autographed cards sold over on COMC that didn't get any interest at all over on eBay.
Another example of this showed up for me today. I had pulled a Ryan Howard Peak Performer sticker auto out of a jumbo box last year. Considering he was probably in the group of toughest people to pull, I was very happy with it. I sent it off to COMC with my latest batch of cards and had to figure out a price for it since There was no price listed for the card. I went to eBay and saw that the autographed relic version of this card, serial numbered to just 50 copies, just sold for $23.23. With that in mind, I listed my auto for $25 thinking that I would get offers just below that. Well, it didn't take long for someone to snatch up the card for $25 and re-list it at $75. Now I'm wondering if I missed out on something here. Is there any possibly way that this card could be worth more that the version numbered to 50 copies?
Given the sale of the numbered card on eBay, I'm very happy with what I sold the card for, but there is part of me that wonders how much this person would have paid for the card. What do all of you think?
