Isnt it too late to do COMC unless you pay higher fee?
I've already listed and sold some relics and sets both auction and BIN style. Will just relist what I dont see when they end.

this is actually a little more overwhelming than i anticipated lol i was thinking it would be easy to just auction off 200 cards at the beginning and now im not so sure. blaaaaaaaaaah lol

I know that pretty much everyone here is a seller, not a buyer, but The Topps Vault just listed the 1/1 blank back base cards on eBay.

yes, would be a higher fee to get it listed in a week...figured priority mail to comc would get it there by mon at the latest, then 1 week processing would put it in th middle of the 2nd week of the olympics...difference in processing is only 15 cents per card

The most overwhelming part is the question of WHEN to sell and worrying about a card "exploding" and going 10x more. For me, I'm listing most this Sunday going for one week. Starting price will be the lowest I would take for the card (which is usually double what I bought it for) and let it ride.

Once it sells, never look back. Just think about what you will do with the profits!

Sounds like a plan! I always think that these are not like other cards where if it doesn't sell, I can hold on to it until later in the season or when the season starts (for football). These are NOT the cards to hold until after the olympics!

Either way, by the time the closing ceremonies are done, I should have ZERO olympic-anything left. That's my plan.

Only raised my starting bids slightly higher than the highest last completed listing...listed 21 yesterday, 21 today...only a dozen or so left...

listed my base set 3 different ways, wonder which will sell...

feel sorry for you guys with 200+. i was tired of revising and listing after 20

I realize that demand will be as high as it will be over the next two weeks, but is the supply going to drown that out? I've already noticed a lot more listed in the last couple days. There are even 2-4 card lots of some autos.

About $3 per set wrapped with cardboard and bubble wrap inside size 0 bubble mailer.

For two sets, I wrapped the sets in bubble wrap and use the Priority Mail bubble mailer. Was going to use the 100ct Ultra Pro boxes for each set, but screw that. Those cost $1 each and I am hardly making any money on these as is.

It may be better to break some of the sets into lots based on events, e.g., swimming, soccer, etc.

You may still make the same amount per set but may attract more customers looking for specific players/events.
