I've used Brent, and had nice success. His rates are very reasonable. I've purchased from Probstein, and gotten great service. Not sure one is better than the other.

Evening,
Picture it:

Lounge Chair..................Feet up............Bucket of Coronas, (Sans Limes), have never had the taste for that. Paypal arrives daily for about % 80-85 % Net of what you've consigned, seriously I am not joking, I spend 20-30 hours a week doing my E-bay Business , this guy does all the work, I just have to crack out some new inventory which I am A$$ deep in, every once in awhile!!!

Wow, thoughts are running rampant!!!!!

Great post. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the Probstein123 thread. Rick and Brent would be my top two choices if I ever did consign anything.

I've bought from both with great success and they are great to work with from a buyer's point of view. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

PWCC seems to do better than VCP on many of his listings

Rick, so when you say 95% of net profits, you mean net of FVFs and Paypal, correct? So basically tack on another 7-10% to the 5%, meaning ~85% of realized ending price on eBay?

Just want to make sure I'm clear as I may need to consign some stuff in the near future. I think by comparison Brent is a flat 10% commission on whatever final price is.

Brent has an escalating price based upon how much or how little your item sales for. If your item sells for $20, then he charges a flat $8 + 10%, so the price on that one would be $12 comission. That rate is up to $100. $100-$200, he charges 15%. Over $200 he charges 12.5% etc......the rates are on his site. He charges more for lots as opposed to single cards, but everything is on his site.

Ok, thanks for correcting, Bobby. I hadn't looked at Brent's prices lately. Looks like you have the most up to date info.

hey thunderdan,
thanks for the reply...
overall our rates are very comparable with PWCC...
the main difference between us and them is that we handle more volume...
we have close to 17,000 items in our ebay store ( compared to zero )
and we run around 2500 auctions a month and they do this typically do this volume every 6 months...
( we have a a staff of 5 ) and can handle the volume...

however, PWCC sells more high end single graded cards ie: T206 cobbs, 33 goudey Ruths, etc...
brent does a great job ....feel free to use us both

call me anytime

I've never sold as much as a stick of gum on ebay.

So I'm gonna make a supposition - anyone feel free to respond...

Since Rick has over 20K FB at 100% - I'm assuming your items would "draw" more bidders on his auctions than if one tried to sell them themselves?

Just curious.

I did find Rick on my 'saved' list - interesting - I don't think I've bought anything from them tho.

I originally brought this up a few months ago. Back in February I contacted Rick for him to sell some of my items. I have had complete satisfaction with him, his rates, but most importantly the customer service!!!!

Rick will receive my 9th shipment to him tomorrow. I have realized about $10,000 with about 500 auctions, and more recently we have set up a sub store. Easy to track for auctions, and I have a couple dozen Buy it Now's.

Rick IMO has exactly what I'm looking for. I wasn't 100 percent sure or confident at first, but every time auctions go up, my packages are received, items sell, etc, I am contacted. He'll talk to you on the phone whenever you want, and is a master with responding to emails.

I am very confident now, and look forward to a long lasting hobby relationship. I love buying lot's, sorting them in spare time and having the best in the industry sell them for me.

I told Rick a few weeks ago, "I will keep finding the food for dinner, he and his employees will prepare the meal, and we'll all have a nice dinner". He told me stay hungry!

I had 10 auctions end last night for a few hundred bucks, and those sales where deposited into my account this morning. Love it!!

Thanks again Rick, I appreciate what you do.

Feel free to ask me any Q's or send me a PM about my experiences.

I am speaking only from a buyer's stand point.

I highly recommend Mr. Probstein! In fact I just recently purchased a card from them last week and everything went perfect. I run daily searches in their ebay store.

PWCC never has anything I want. If they did I probably would buy from them as well.

If it were me selling stuff I would go with Mr. Probstein. I believe with their larger volume they attract more people to their listings. That is just my 2 cents though.

GL with what ever you end up doing Bobby.

Rick did a great job for me with quite a few lots - thanks Rick.

Brent has a bunch of my stuff going out this week too. Nice to have a couple of good options available for sales....
