In these trying economic times, many people are trying to find ways to stretch their pennies and earn a few extra bucks anyway possible. The First and Goal homefront is no exception as I am currently feeling a bit of a cash crunch myself. To help bolster our bank account, I am looking to sell off most of the “hits” I obtained in the past year while mindlessly buying wax I had no business buying (a new career led to sudden “disposable income” which led to me spending far too much on new boxes of cards which has not helped my current cash crunch).
I have never sold cards online before, so I am hoping you readers have some pointers of advice for me. Do I go the eBay, Craig’s List, or checkoutmycards.com route (I think I’d prefer eBay since I already have a paypal and eBay linked account)? Do I try to set my own price or leave it up to an open auction and hope for the best? Should I start with the really good ones or get my feet wet with the cards that probably won’t bring more than a few bucks anway? Please advise as if you were the one selling these cards and in need of extra income. I don’t want to screw anyone over, but obviously I also want something left over after selling and shipping costs.
So in the words of the great Beatles song: HELP!
