As one of my fellow collector''s says, "I will not trade at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted. For whatever else you may think of Beckett and its effect on the trading card industry, I believe that it is the only objective standard available. If our cards are of the same Beckett BV, I will not trade in your favor simply because you think your card is "under rated", or "sells well on eBay."
This explains why I don''t trade at eBay prices - if I have a $20 card that sells for $30 on ebay, and you have an $80 card that sells for $20, and you only trade your cards at ebay prices, does that mean you owe me more in trade?? Or does it only pertain to your card if higher on ebay?
I can never understand why people look for cards on eBay and expect to pay that much for cards on other sites. If the card you wants is selling for $20 on eBay, and people are asking $30 for it on a site, then buy it off of eBay. If the card you were looking for was selling on eBay for $60, and someone on one of the sites was asking only $40 for it, would you tell him you'd pay $60 since that's what it was selling for on eBay??? I doubt it VERY highly!!!
