I have been posting my numbers very last minute the last few weeks, so let’s break that habit and get them done earlier. Easy to do when sales are as slow as they were last week!
But that will happen when 0 items over $100 sell. Plus my monthly auctions, which will reflect in next week’s numbers, did great this time around and I still have 150 more auctions which close tonight. Use up those free auction listings if you have collectibles items, folks. Even if it means setting minimum bids at half your buy it now, which is what I do. Trading cards are the most popular category for auctions, so I am “lucky” in that sense, but I think there are a lot of buyers who like bidding and trying to win as opposed to the one-click buy-now mentality that exists on basically every other marketplace platform.

Average sales price: $48.52 (down 9% from one year ago)
Highest price sold (net): $64.93— Jessie Diggins 2018 Topps Olympics nordic skiing autograph
Lowest price sold (net): $13.17— Jake Daubert 2012 National Treasures bat card ##/99 — second week in a row that a Jake Daubert bat card is my low price sale…you love to see a pipeline of consistent sales like this!
It’s always so interesting to think about how we break down our numbers…my numbers look terrible on the surface compared to a year ago, but because I’m selling on another platform, things are fine. And even within eBay, sales are pretty strong…I’m down 11% compared to last month and 15% compared to last quarter, but that’s all within reasonable expectations. I often wonder if this is the case for people who post here every once in a blue moon about how sales are bad, without a lot of details, and then disappear again for a while.
