Who Here Has Used The Registry As a Way To Sell Inventory?


I've got a stupid amount of PSA slabs (w/ cards inside) that need to be sold. Each day I almost:
1) Start an eBay store
2) Create a Shopify store
3) Create enormous listings of my cards and links to front/back scans with pricing to be posted in various forums
4) Ship all of my cards off to a consignment genie
5) Start this discussion to see if I can use the PSA Set Registry software to help with selling.

If I mark something for sale in the registry, what happens? Does it magically appear as available for other people's registry sets, so when they click "Shop", one of the options is "Buy from Bob"? Who's done this? Was there a fee? Am I talking nonsense?

    I think your first problem may be who (potential buyer) would go to your Registry set and see that you have cards for sale. Hypothetically, if you have an Albert Pujols master set and you do what you're thinking, aren't you limiting your exposure to potential buyers? Even if the "for sale" info spreads across all the other registered sets, how often do you think people go there to look? I would think very, very few. Low to no traffic = low to no sales.

    Don't know what you're selling, but if you want little or no effort involved, I'd send them to a "consignment genie". Over the years I have dealt with Steve Novella, who is ACES!! You can find him at Stevenovella.com. I had him sell a very high grade 55 Topps set of mine a few years ago, agreement made on the phone and off went about $60k in cards...smooth deal, excellent results, his vig is reasonable and he's an excellent communicator...I highly recommend Steve. Feel free to drop my name if you call.

    Steve Novella is a great guy to deal with

    I've only bought from Steve Novella but I must agree. Great packaging, quick shipping. I like how he takes care of business.

    Bob, as others have said here, Steve Novella is a great resource for you to use to sell cards for you.

    Nope. I've just accumulated so many duplicates over the years that I'm swimming in stuff I need to unload. I'm planning on contacting Steve, but before I do that I'll post a list here and across the street of what I'm selling.

    Swimming is an exaggeration but I have personally tripped over piles of cards entombed in plastic in Bob's basement

    For all I know, you're still down there wandering around between the stacks.

  • I have never sold off the registry but I have had some success buying off the registry, usually from those who have uncomplete sets. Im working on high grade baseball 1966-69. If you have any dupes psa 9 or 10 from these years, message me . Cheers

    @bobsbbcards I am interested in PSA Topps Milwaukee Braves and Milwaukee Brewers


    After those four National League games, Gorman Thomas was never the same, and neither were the Brewers, and come to think of it neither was I.
