I have been on eBay since 2001. I love buying and selling sports cards. The by-sport breakdown is 95% basketball, 5% football and golf, and <1% everything else. I do this as a hobby not a living. Although I would love to pursue that someday, my wife will not even entertain the idea right now :). As you'll notice, the majority of what I sell is low-end, with some mid stuff mixed in there. Due to rising shipping costs and the fact that I sell low value type cards, as a rule of thumb any card I sell individually for under $10-12 I will send via the eBay Standard Envelope Shipping with TRACKING. Read on- I put the card in a penny sleeve, then into a card saver type case (or thin top loader), then into a team bag, and then tape it inside two thin pieces of cardboard; and secondly- I much prefer to ship First Class in a bubble mailer, so I offer free upgraded shipping if 2 or more listings are purchased. No up charges for combined shipping, all free. Thank you for visiting my eBay store.
