For about the last 15 years, dealers at sports card shows have had to compete with what collectors can get the same item for on eBay. Collectors with a smartphone and a little patience no longer have to wait until they get back to their PC or laptop to compare prices. It's often right there on a mobile app. Now, eBay is almost ready to add image-recognition technology to its mobile platforms. It will give shoppers the ability to take photos of the items they're looking at and have eBay instantly show matching results from its millions of listings.

I think this application could be incredible for this hobby and could bring back set collectors. Imagine being able to walk into a hobby shop and sit down at a computer and quickly browse through his million card inventory in seconds made possible by him/her having taken quick pics of his cards to upload them to the inventory rather than having scan/search/enter everything...now we would just need a safe and fast scanner to image the cards.
