To reiterate, it is NOT panic in many cases. It's what works for a particular product, set, or player. .99 cent auction works as well as BIN/BO and eBay stores. It's about how each method is...

You can't say that about every product though. There are plenty of products where you can start an auction at .99 cents and come out very well in the end. Several VERY successful large breakers have...

Hey all. Not really a non-sports guy, but I've been intrigued on the price movement. Looks like wholesale pricing has fallen as low as $776. At what point does this become a good buy again despite...

If a card normally sells at .99 cents, there is definitely a benefit to storing it at 2.99. Many buyers will grab it for 2.99 rather than wait for the next auction.

$637.93. So really if you paid anything below that, the seller is agreeing to take a loss. That just seems strange that a person would pay $637 and then re-sell for $400-$500.
