Should I Consign with Probstein123?
There are many good reasons to look into consigning your sports cards on eBay. One of the main reasons people opt to use consignors is to save money on fees. If you have a high value card it can be more cost effective to consign it. Even with cards worth $50 you will take home more money than if you had to list it yourself and pay eBay/Paypal fees.
Another reason people consign is to conceal their identity. By listing your cards through a consignor you are able to stay anonymous. This can be great if you have a very high value collection and don’t want to draw attention to yourself. However, this often leads to people thinking they can get away will shill bidding on their own auctions and also attracts card trimming scammers to list their trimmed cards through consignors.
If you search the web for Probstein123 you will find varying reviews. A lot of people swear by Probstein123 and PWCC as great legit businesses to help you maximize your earnings. However, there are claims that these companies actively take part in shill bidding, don’t do anything to stop trimmed/altered cards from being sold, and even have eBay remove negative feedback from their accounts.
