Would be interested to hear what kind of percentage of BV some other sellers are getting an a monthly basis. I hover around the 30% rate (meaning 70% off).

i've noticed more and more port sales here lately.. why are so many people getting out of COMC? is it losing it's spunk? my first batch is at 80% finished and i'm starting to feel it was a bad idea to send in the cards lol

It's def. not losing it's spunk. I love it as a seller since 2008 and as a buyer. It has come up in leaps and bounds.

I know I am trying to clean up my inventory on there as there are some higher end cards I'd like to try and obtain. I have a bunch more at home that I can go & send to them too. It's amazing how easy it is to find a few hundred cards every couple of months to send into them.

It's definitely not losing it's spunk. I've had more gross sales in the last 3 months than any 3 month stint prior. My only issue at this point is sellers undercutting each other to the bone on the more common cards. I'm actually having better luck with 90's stuff numbered to 10,000 than today's stuff numbered to 100 .

I am seeing the exact same thing. It is a crime to have to cut a year old Numbered to 100 insert to 90% off book in order to sell the card. The 90's stuff sells for a much higher percentage of book.

Seeing the same...I think it is a result of alot of the special processing deals that have been run along with the increase in the number of sellers. Been selling alot of 90's basketball recently.

I was considering sending in my first batch of 1000 cards or so.

At what price point is it really not worth it to send cards?

$5.00/card
$1.00/card
25 cents/card???

I see alot of 25 cent cards and I figure people have to lose money on these between the storage fees, etc... IS the trick to send a good mix of high dollar cards and low?

Is my perception of this website accurate or am I missing something.

I am sure this has been answered in other threads somewhere but I figure this may be a good place to ask with all these veteran COMC sellers here.

I think there are just a heck of a lot more people collecting 90s and older stuff than more current cards. I just went through and analyzed all my sales, and was shocked by how few cards from the last 10 years I have sold. Consequently, I just dropped my prices on cards from the last 10 years about in half. Hopefully, somebody buys some of them!

Update - maintaining a common level of inventory, but it's continuing to sell . I'll definitely have to refresh some pricing on older inventory though as it seems (outside of the uber-rare stuff) there's a lot more volume of cards competing for the sales. The Amazon thing has helped move cards too.

That said, since I do the Amazon thing, I'm open to any 20% off offers and possibly more on cards in my port. Take a look .

Awesome! It's definitely a good outlet for those cards you can't give away on eBay. Consolidated shipping FTW.

I did some hardcore house-cleaning in February with some very large port sales of my lower-end cards, plus a repricing of all inventory and accepting all offers during the month. I ended up selling over 8200 cards for a total price of over $3400 (as you can see, mostly low-end). Storage fees have now gone from over $30 a month to under $6 .
