It may come as a surprise that there is still money to be made in card collecting. While it is true that the value of most cards has declined since the 1990s, you too can make good money in collecting as long as you’re willing to put in the effort. In fact, a few cards have surpassed traditional forms of investment in the past few decades. Here are our top five tips for collectors looking to turn a profit.
Mavin’s goal is to give you the current market value of your card in just a few clicks. Traditional price guides are outdated, incomplete, and a pain to flip through. Online price guides are difficult to use and it takes forever to find the card you’re looking for. And in both cases, you have no idea where they’re getting their data from. With Mavin, we make searching for your card a breeze and you choose the “data” to find out the most accurate market value for your card. In this article, I’ll give you tips on how to use Mavin to get the best results.
Are you ready to sell your cards on eBay? Before listing anything, make sure to search your card on Mavin to get a price estimate based on cards similar to your own. Once you’re satisfied that you’ve found the best price, you can list your card knowing you have valued your card appropriately.
