I know PWCC is a great marketer but JEEZ LOUISE

I just don't buy that people routinely pay 50% more for the same cards just because it is auctioned by them. Things that make you go HMMMMMM. I am about to the point that I am going to just have to blow by their listings.

    they also have very HQ scans, some people really chase very high quality cards (color and centering) which their scans augment vs your average persons auction.

    They do seem to get more for their auctions. Especially when they put their own hologram on it (better eye appeal according to their reviewers).

    But there's something to say for their service - if you are selling a premium card it might be best to auction it through them vs. doing it yourself. You could realize more net cash based on their followers and marketing techniques...

    I absolutely believe there is/should be a premium on PWCC card auctions.

    Most card people on eBay have no idea what cards are worth.
    eBay completed sales, terapeak, worthpoint.... absolute joke. They are manipulated so much, I would put them in the category of “fake news”.
    There is a reason some people sell cards higher consistently than eBay completed sales.

    When Macy’s sells a shirt or Lids sells a hat, the calculate what it cost to bring it to market, sales trends, customer proclivity, long term value, and numerous other factors. They don’t sell by completed sales.

    I have a friend that does not shop at Macy’s or Lids, he goes to super expensive stores and pays $150 for a shirt and $125 for a hat. He wants the idea that he is wearing THE BEST!

    PWCC is the best. I gladly pay a premium on their items. I’m getting what I paid for (many sellers are garbage on eBay), it’s being shipped properly, and their market analysis of investments stands alone in the market as the pinnacle of data collection.

    It’s very sad that people have to attack others that are doing things the right way. If you can’t understand why then You’re better off emulating until you figure it out.

    Well that may be correct, but then again I think unscrupulous activity happens frequently in many transactions these days in many varied aspects of business and IMHO there are also those that just have more money than brains in their pocket and are willing to pay 50% more than what a card is worth.

    There is no auctioneer consistently bringing the type of cards PWCC does. It’s ground breaking and it’s obvious the high appeal material is getting consigned to them routinely. I would be worried if I were some of the smaller AH’s.

    Just wait until they have their Vault marketplace. Listing BIN’s. It will be the single greatest marketplace for the best of the best cards. It won’t even be close.

    Actually, when it comes to this stuff reputation is everything. That’s why PWCC is successful - you don’t find too many disappointed buyers or sellers. Sort of similar to PSA, you don’t just pay for the service but the brand as well. PSA, SGC and BVG all grade cards. I think 98 percent would say all are pretty well respected. Which one do you want you’re 10’s in? Like all three are 10s of your ideal card and you have money for any.

    Pick one.

    On these boards (and in the market) for most cards the answer is going to be PSA because of the brand. Doesn’t disparage the other two just like saying this about PWCC doesn’t disparage the many awesome auction houses that exist. But a great reputation, quality service and high prices are like Bo Duke, Luke Duke and the General Lee - expect many ‘high flying’ adventures when all three are found together. That’s Business 101.

    I think this is what it comes down to for most people with PWCC (and PSA, for that matter) - the service is unquestionably legitimate and therefore it is worth it to most to be paying some type of premium for it.

    I mean, raise your hand if you ever saw something on eBay - even in a slab - where you passed on it because the seller looked sketchy? Or even just took a sellers word on condition? :wink:

    I could address this piece by piece, and the several parts I agree with and the several parts I disagree with, but honestly I’m too lazy at this moment to write that kind of post. So i’ll only say this. Their “index” or whatever they call it is not always objective and often flawed. You laud it, but honestly I don’t think it serves a lot of purpose, at this point in time, in the way their data is collected and especially in the ways it’s organized and presented.

    I certainly don’t avoid their auctions - good values can be found anywhere including PWCC - but I prefer to buy raw, I collect off the beaten path a bit and can’t really do most four figure* and any five figure cards as a buyer. So that limits the options with many of their listings that would be of interest to me. I’ve won very few items and no ‘whales’ of any kind. Nor do I imagine I will.

    As a collector and therefore mostly a buyer, I did consign a small lot of items to them once just to see if it was all it’s cracked up to be. Since I knew I wouldn’t be placing any bids and there wasn’t going to be any funny business that way I was a little nervous. However, all the lots outperformed my expectation with some being record highs for the grade. Personally, it was all first rate and from first contact to check cutting (quickly) I had not a single complaint.

    It just seems like you come pretty darn close to market tops easier and quicker with a quality item with PWCC than you can on your own for the average Joe and even big sellers. Paid quick, they must ship quick (a flip or two was up 4-5 days later on eBay) and will address every question asked promptly.

    I don’t mean to sound like an ad; just giving an honest collectors review.

    Part of it has to do with the fact there are a lot of eyeballs on their auctions which aren’t run continuously. So people wait in anticipation for which cards the next auction will bring to market. If you look at eBay these days, there are very few sellers doing $0.99 auctions. So that also plays into it. People are more likely to bid 50% above VCP for a card that started at $0.99 vs one with a high BIN or opening bid with no action.

    People do pay way over market sometimes and do so legitimately. Even a small time seller like me sometimes hits gold. I sold a PSA 9 1960s HOFer a while back for 3x VCP. I usually start my listings around VCP average and often sell with 1 or 2 bids. This one had many bids with two bidders going back and forth against each other. The examples that have sold since that one auction have returned back near VCP average. I can imagine with all the interest in PWCC auctions and the high quality material and scans, it’s not hard to believe they get crazy prices sometimes. I do get good deals from them too though. Especially on commons to fill in my sets.

    I assume that many to all those trying to justify the 50% markup are trying to protect their investments. I don't believe that anyone honestly believes the 50% is justified, no matter what they say.

  • ElvisPElvisP Posts: 684 ✭✭✭

    Everytime I come across a PWCC auction, buyers are all over it. Buyers pounce on their auctions fast. Same way with Probstein. COMC is a consignment business, but they never do auctions for some reason.

  • DotStoreDotStore Posts: 212 ✭✭✭

    I've bought a few things from them that were pretty good deals (based on the same card/grade auctioned from other sellers). I go in with the mindset of "this is what the card is worth to me" and if it goes over my max bid then so be it. I don't get into bidding wars on a card. Actually, I can't get into a bidding war because I usually submit my max bid with about 5 seconds to go -- so there's no chance I duke it out with another bidder...

    Side Note: I've always thought eBay could raise their revenue by doing what other auction venues do and extend the auction for "x" minutes when a bid comes within the last minute(s) of the original end time...

    Re: Side Note

    I don’t disagree with you on the revenue angle but I have seen some of the auction houses with soft closings (as opposed to the eBay style hard close) shift to hard closings and I would imagine that is customer complaint driven. Because those can become a contest between two guys of who can stay up longer with small incremental bidding (that in some cases keeps every lot open longer).

    Both systems work with the right card, obviously, to produce high prices so at the end of the day the auction host should take the pulse of his core customers and do what makes them happy.

    I have to imagine there are a lot of people that only buy from PWCC. They're basically the only seller on eBay that always offers 1. high quality items, high quality scans, basically weekly auctions, and ALL auctions start at $0.99.

    But really, I think it's the flexibility in payment that attracts people to them. You don't need to have money to by from them. Something pops up that you want? Just win it and then send them a better card as a consignment to pay for it. I bet that attracts a LOT of buyers. It also probably allows them to bid higher than if they were paying cold hard cash the next morning.

    I know, I know, they have their problems that have been discussed here, and they're serious problems, but there are also legitimate reasons why people only go with them, too.

    For me, many of the cards I buy are worth the premium. I like centered cards with high quality photography. I know the transaction will go smoothly and the shipping will be fine. Ebay has brought a lot of good cards to market but there is a lot of fraud and quite frankly a lot of stupid people I just choose not to deal with. I rarely buy an item on Ebay if it isn't PWCC or another seller I trust of which there are very few. If you want to save a few dollars go ahead and take the risk but it's not for me.

  • remedylaneremedylane Posts: 135 ✭✭✭

    It all comes down to what someone is willing to pay. That's on the particular buyer. Pwcc does have the best of the best. I've overpaid for raw cards and for graded cards. Comes down to wants and how far you are willing to go.

    Imo, it's all become a bit overblown. I remember collecting in the 80s and 90s, before professional grading became the norm. If you wanted a value you looked in the book. If you wanted a Roger Staubach rookie for instance, you'd pay $125 for a NM one. Now if it's in a holder you are gonna pay in the thousands. There is a separate set of values, a legit mint raw card and a mint graded card are worth different amounts.

    To be honest it's really kind of silly. In reality the holder is worth more than the actual card. And now there even more premiums on super nice pwcc or probstein graded cards. I'm not mad, it's just funny if you really think about it and break it down .

    I don't disagree with you. But we all had the same grading guidelines in any tuff stuff or Beckett. Same ones used by grading companies today. I think we just saw what we wanted to see back then when it came to grading our cards. Hell, that happens even now with professional grading..

    I think the 50% mark up has been embellished in this thread. I would say most cards go for (top end) market value.

    I account the premium to more eyes being on pwcc items.

    No different than shopping in my town of 10,000 people. I like to keep my money local but if you think I am going to pay you an extra 50% for the same quality item to buy local then you better think again. 10% is no problem, more than 10%, it depends on the item, but 50%, not gonna happen. I guess I like my money enough to put it towards another card rather than to give it away. IMHO, people get tied up in names instead of opening their eyes. I sure didn't expect my initial post to garner this type of rhetoric. I just got to laugh that I am deemed "SAD" and that I am "attacking" and should "emulate". Unreal, I have been on this board a long time and have made several good friends over the past decade and have done numerous sales and purchases but I guess this is why I have only made the number of posts I have in so many years.

    I’d rather go to my local stores. They are more money but they are convenient and friendly.

    No different than shopping in my town of 10,000 people. I like to keep my money local but if you think I am going to pay you an extra 50% for the same quality item to buy local then you better think again. 10% is no problem, more than 10%, it depends on the item, but 50%, not gonna happen. I guess I like my money enough to put it towards another card rather than to give it away. IMHO, people get tied up in names instead of opening their eyes. I sure didn't expect my initial post to garner this type of rhetoric. I just got to laugh that I am deemed "SAD" and that I am "attacking" and should "emulate". Unreal, I have been on this board a long time and have made several good friends over the past decade and have done numerous sales and purchases but I guess this is why I have only made the number of posts I have in so many years.

    Use the troll filter: once you find a troll, stop reading and go to next entry. Much more enjoyable. Takes less time, too! :wink:
