Default Holiday Ebay sales - opinions please

Posted By: Bryan Long

I think we may have discussed this before but I couldn't find anything in the search. I am parting with a number of cards and since I have no idea of a asking price I thought of putting them on ebay. My question is have any of the ebay sellers on the board noticed that prices drop dramatically over the holidays, especially Christmas? I don't want to put anything on ebay if the prices will reflect people not buying for lack of cash to spend on BB cards. Any opinions?
Thanks.

If you are selling into a market where the target purchaser may be financially affected by purchasing gifts, I recommend holding off your offering. If your cards are higher priced, then it should matter less.

I know last December I got a few good deals the week before xmas on EBay, that I did suspect was related to the season. Also, this year I'm cutting back on my card spending until mid January.

Unless the item is really unique, I'd advise against it.

Case in point: my PSA 4 1952 Babe Ruth Look and See with wonderful centering and color sold for $71 on sunday. A PSA 3 with crap centering and a bent corner sold for $103. Why? I have no idea.

The cards I've been following haven't produced any bargains; that's for sure. Most of the sought-after pre war stuff still looks strong. However, more commonly found cards tend to suffer between now and mid-January

I haven't seen any appreciable difference lately on most of the tougher and more desirable cards.
