Default Should I Sell My Collection On eBay Or COMC

I'm in need of some money. But I don't know what site should I sell my cards. My collection is not very good so any money coming in would be great. Can someone please check out my Photobucket collection and tell me what is best for me to do?

Thanks

COMC is going to cost you money up-front to send cards in, so if you're in need of money, might not be the best option. Also, COMC may take a while for everything to sell.

Ebay will get you quicker sales but if you auction everything, you might get less overall. Plus you would probably have to take the time to get good scans and keep on top of all your auctions.

Really comes down to how much free time you have (for eBay) and/or if you have enough cash on hand to pay the up-front costs to COMC.

eBay is faster if time is of the essence, and you don't have to put in any up-front money if cash is an issue.

COMC would be a much better option for someone who has a lot of $5, $10, $20 cards and is willing to let them trickle out the door over 6 months or a year or two.

You can also do both. Try them on eBay first and any that you don't sell for a satisfactory price, submit to COMC.

You don't want to do it the other way around - submitting them to COMC, then taking back the unsold ones and selling them on eBay.

You can just send them into COMC and checkoutmydeals can lowball you on your cards and you can sell them that way

Yes, but it would be faster for me to lowball him on eBay in one big lot.

Or you can not lowball and just make fair offers.

If you don't want me to make you offers, just send me a private message and I won't make you offers. I don't want to bother anyone or waste anyone's time, and I apologize if I offended you.
