Default Best Time To Sell Baseball Cards On Ebay

I have heard Sunday Nights At Around 8-9 PM Central.
I am planning a 10 day auction for the cards im selling, so i would sell them tonight so they would go through 2 weekend's and end up selling next next sunday night.
But is there a more specific better time to sell your cards?

10 days seems a bit long for me, I lose interest if I have to wait that long on a card I'm bidding on

I know, but most people just look at the first or 2 pages, where the auctions are ending on the day or tommorow. Most people dont see auction when they still have 9 or 10 days remaining, and i want the most views and watches i can get on my cards, who knows.. maybe on the 8th day when it's up. Someone sees it and bids on it, which is why i dont do 7 day auctions.

- avoid ending items on big holiday weekends.

Other than that, people and the web are mobile so I don't think there's any "prime" selling time on eBay anymore. I don't think 10 days is that necessary either unless you're selling a pitcher who you think will have two solid starts in a row. Good luck with your auction.

I think the 10-day listing, starting on a Thursday night is prime for the seller. It's not really painful as a buyer IMO. Most will never know the difference

Personally for ending 8-9 central should work. I know I'm typically heading off to bed 10 pm ish (eastern), so you'd be in that time frame.

I dont like 10 day auctions for the main reason that you pay for the extra time. Its not like your item(s) is being found every day. 9/10 times your cards will hit guys searches. 1/10 times is when a player gets hot and people stumble onto them. I can tell you only if I have free time to do I do odd searches on ebay. And at that point I typically then save that search.
