Default Do you get sick of constant ebay searching for someone you really don't care about?

I know, weird title

But I search for "Chris Carter" many times throughout the day searching for just one card, not like I'm looking to see what new pops up for him like I do for my PC guys, but one specific card.

I'm trying to finish off this printing plate set and have been searching on a daily basis (probably 5-10 times a day) for a few months now and I'm just getting sick of having to look through a bunch of listings I don't care about for just this one card. I don't mind it for my PC guys, it's always nice to see what's being listed even if I'm not in the market for anything at that time.

But this is just getting annoying

I have the same type of thing for a bunch of Orioles refractors. You have to keep the search broad incase someone lists it with a bad title, but you eventually keep seeing the same peoples stuff relisted over and over. But when something new pops up it makes it all worth it.

Set it up as a Saved Search on your eBay app and it will notify you via text when a new matching item is listed

Like the guy above you said, gotta keep the search basic because you never know how they'll list it

They could call it a printing plate, printing press, print plate, etc

So I just gotta keep it simple with "Chris carter" and I don't want all those emails comig through

It's killing me because I pulled the first one of them myself and the other two were already on eBay so I bought them both. I'd love to finish off the set but it's becoming so frustrating having to do these searches so often that I'm wondering if I should just sell the 3 and forget about it

Here's your search:

"chris carter gypsy (1/1, plate, print, printing, press)"

That should encompass everything you want in 1 search so you won't be notified repeatedly.
