There used to be a lot of activity on these boards. Can someone tell me what platform people that are buying/selling/trading graded cards have moved to? Thanks a lot!

    Not a lot of trading on eBay. Facebook is where I do a lot.

    I know some people who used to sell on here now use Facebook. I not a Facebook fan so am missing out a bit, but I still buy regularly on here and Net54.

    Facebook. The old mods killed these boards with all their bans. These boards used to be amazing with all the knowledge and product changing hands.

    Right, what I’m saying is what do you collect? All sports? Modern or vintage? Vintage football, Venezuelan baseball, specific players or teams…. Lmk and I’ll make recommendations.

    For buying I use facebook groups, myslabs, or ebay. Ebays fees got to be too much and I have built a solid group of friends on FB that I'm comfortable buying from with no protection. If I'm buying a big $ card, I still prefer to buy off of ebay because of the buyer protection.

    For trading I use the bench forum. It's really active for low dollar trading and just having fun.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 27,471 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'd have no problem whatsoever buying or selling a high dollar item with a long time member on here such as Perkdog, Stone, Grote, etc.

    Ebay as well, no problem with a high dollar item for reasons I think we all know. Unless the seller feedback is dismal or a newbie seller who just smells like a scammer. Be careful though even with good Ebay feedback because a favorite scammer trick on there is to build up positive feedback selling low cost items. But then they come in for the kill with high dollar items, and scam the buyers.

    On a venue such as Facebook, i think I'd limit my transactions to inexpensive modern cards, just trying to fill holes in a set worth a few dollars. Or trading my inexpensive dups for their inexpensive dups that I needed, etc.

    Ah that makes sense... Pro Baseball 50s - 90s; Perez Steele (signed and not) Gateway signed. I also have some famous people autograph (various fields).

  • Chicago1976Chicago1976 Posts: 444 ✭✭✭✭✭

    For buying: Ebay, MySlabs, and 4 Sharp Corners for graded cards. For raw cards, mostly card shows and shops where I can see the card in hand.

    When selling, I use MySlabs.

    I sell on ebay and low dollar raw I sell on comc.

  • Thanks for all the tips guys. I will try myslabs and the Bench. I am most interested in trading now because I have a lot of lower value duplicates that I would like to trade for holes in my sets.
