Size? Condition? Accurate description? Contents? Maybe not as important with cards, but lots of us deal in memorabilia, where the more information you provide, the better.

Too many folks selling pinback buttons don't include size info. Helpful to specify size or to at least include a photo of the item next to a ruler.

Appearance does not matter to me, unless it is really bad. Like good pictures. Want to see both sides of a card, especially if there is a variation on the back. Different angles of other items is a plus.

The only thing that matters in the listing is the price, quality pics, feedback and a decent description.

I voted before I read your actual question. So, I would change my vote to no All you need are good pictures, description describing any flaws, decent feedback and BE FRIENDLY

I clicked on your link. No need for all that in my opinion. Like everyone says, good scans( front and BACK)!

I prefer a more simpler listing, but as yours had a decent picture and a description, I was fine with it.

good luck

Bob

Same thing I did. The poll question isn't worded best to describe the two choices. I agree with most others in this thread. Appearance as it relates to good scans is most important.

For what it's worth Jeff, I think your listings look pretty good. Presentation does matter a little bit IMO. Decades of marketing research and every ad agency in the world will agree with that I believe.

  • Feedback - not end all, be all, but I check what the negative/neutrals might say
  • Price, including shipping -duh?
  • Spelling and that the person can communicate - again, not end all, be all, but if the person takes time for coming across effectively, then I feel they 'care' for their items(s)

Much of the above just show you care (IMO).
I agree with this. I clicked on your link. With a feedback score of almost 4000, and a 100% rating all I would need is a couple of pictures, a brief description, and a fair price to buy. The rest doesn't matter.
