Hey guys,

I just listed 600+ cards with Checkoutmycards.com... It was good service..It took a full 2 weeks after I sent them the cards to get it uploaded though. They are really busy I guess. Was .20 a card to list, but that is a one time cost till they sell. I am pretty happy with it and will update if and when the sales come in. Take a look, this could be an alternative from Ebay. wunderkindcards's Cards - CheckOutMyCards.com

Well, I feel I am in my right mind. These are cards that I am not going to waste listing on Ebay. Now instead of sitting in my house collecting dust, they are listed on a site with a lot of exposure. So I pay .20 one time fee per card. Now if they sell, I don't have to worry about shipping, paypal fees, cheating customers, nagging customers, going to the post office, different post office rules, negative feedback, positive feedback, etc. ..all the things people complain about on here every day. I already have sold some cards and it hasn't been 24 hours even. I wouldn't list my best cards on here, but cards like a box full of chromes and refractors that might or might not sell works for me. I look at the 20% commission as a little high, but then remember all the crap I don't have to deal with and it makes it worth it. Time is money, and the more time I can spend on the bigger items and set building the more money I can make.

it is definitely one of those alternatives people are seeking. Keep us informed. Like you said, it may be a way to move certain things without all the hassle. Good Luck!

Yes please keep us informed, what have you sold, how much did you get? I mean if you can sell rookies and base and common cards that you can't sell on ebay, why not dump them here? If you can sell half of them for anything, it is better than them sitting in your room taking up space!

Ok guys..I am keeping you updated...here are my first sales in less than 2 days...

Jacoby Ellsbury 1952 Rookies Chrome $6.00 ---Ebay average anywhere from $3-12

Jacoby Ellsbury 1952 Rookies Chrome Refractor $10.00 -- Ebay none recently to compare with

Miguel Tejada 1952 Rookies Chrome $1.00 -- Ebay .99

Mark Reynolds 1952 Rookies Chrome $2.00 -- Ebay No sales

So, there is 19.00 in sales.

Now if I wanted to cash that out I would get 15.20. But, if I wanted to use it to list more cards I get the whole 19.00 that would be 95 more cards, or I could buy more cards from the site for the whole 19.00 if I see some that I could use in my collection or sell for higher on Ebay. That way I am getting the whole amount and not having to worry at all about the 20% commission.

Reallly quite interesting....
Loading up cards on the net,
you can even keep your purchases on the net..

Has sort of an ETopps feel to it.
I may give this a shot

They are long time members of the card selling community. They were formally lowpricecards.com A pretty big card site. Also Tim Getsch one of the owners works for microsoft and has for awhile. These guys are here to stay. Look at how much money they invested in their site, I trust them.

Another Update:

Tonight I sold all of my 23 Arod Road to 500 cards I had listed....at $3.00 each.

That's 69.00 for 23 of them.

Pretty darn happy with that. So far in less than 72 hours I have $88.00 in sales for 27 of the 671 I listed. I have 649 more cards to go. The best thing, I don't have to worry about shipping or paypal.

This keeps getting better and better.

WOW now that is a good sale! Especially since on ebay you can barely sell that lot for $10.

When you list the card for 20 cents is there an expiration date?

Default Thanks...

I just checked them out and saw wunder's cards. Looks like a small price to pay for a lot of cards just sitting around.

I have a bunch of Topps Moments and Milestones that may do okay there. They are all big name guys and numbered. I have other inserts and stuff from breaking boxes that I'd never bother listing on eBay. I'll probably send them 200 cards to start and see what happens.

Like someone said, they'd just be collecting dust.

Best to All,
Vinny

I just checked out the whole site and it is very intriguing. I may give it a try with some cards I have laying around that are not worth selling on ebay.
The thing that makes no since are the idiots selling cards for .15 on the site that spent .20 to list them. I have cards that I really need to get rid of but I am not paying someone to take them away!!!!!

The idiots selling the card for 15 cents are the guys that own the site -- I'd imagine they waive the 20 cent fee for themselves

Ok. I was wondering what the hell was going on.

Now that I think about it -- I don't know why I made that assumption -- but that's my guess

Actually guys, they give a break on bulk listings. Also, if you list a ton of commons they will bring down the listing fee to accommodate. I am going to be sending them close to 8,000 cards and am expecting to get quite a break on the .20 listing. They will turn away commons that have no sale value at all though, so mostly meaning sets from the 90's.

I hope they work on categorizing them all better. Also I hope they get to weed out the wrong descriptions. I was flipping through some pages and saw a 1982 Topps George Foster for a quarter that said it had an autograph on it. It was, of course, the preprinted facsimile auto.

Best to All,
Vinny

Yeah, there are some growing pains they are going through. It took more than 2 weeks for my cards to be posted. Also, as far as I know, they don't have a bulk pricing method. So I had to go through each card and price it then upload it. Took awhile. I was hoping they would have a way to export your list to excel then go through and price it. Then just upload it and away you go. But the positives out weigh the negatives. The fact that my wife will stop pestering me about the boxes of cards just sitting around everywhere is worth more than everything else.

Going well, I've sold another 14 dollars in cards since my last post. I've had some real lowball offers that I have declined, but I am still happy overall.

Are you still sending them 8000 cards?

I'm still a little wary of their 20% cash out costs -- a $1 card costs 40 cents to sell (granted, without any of the shipping hassle).
