Well the sale I was using to get the cheap Hidden Fates tins has ended. It was supposed to run until Sunday but has been replaced by the Memorial Day sale and that does not include the tins in the sale. So that will put an end to me stocking up more for the meantime at least.
There is a good sale for Greninja GX, but not sure how much these things will be worth in a few years

I've already got 6 boxes of those so don't really want to get many more (if any). They are theoretically good profit but the market for Detective Pikachu boosters and Greninjas has to be very low

So I read that some people weigh packs and sell the ones that aren't good. I don't intend on doing that but are the lower priced ones on eBay going to be weighed? So if I'm not weighing packs should I sell for higher?

The code cards weigh different depending on if there is a holo or not inside.

I just opened one of my Hidden Fates tins to see what was inside and man if they are all like that, they are shoddily packed. The GX card looks like it was crammed in and so is minorly crumpled on the edges.

Also I am not sure if this is the norm but the packs look weird. There's like a white mark on the front and back of the packs at both the top and bottom where the seal overlaps. Like where it was pressed, it was either pressed strangely or the machine they use is leaving a mark on both the top and bottom seals. When I flip over the flap bit it looks fine. The bottom and sides of the packs are also crumpled a little from how they were shoved tightly in the box.

I'm tempted to just sell the tins seals now rather than selling things individually as people may question if these are resealed. And the GX card (which isn't worth much anyway) is essentially worthless with the minor damage. And if they are all like that, I'm better just selling the tins complete.

Yes, i had this problem too, which made me open all the bad ones. I've kept a lot of the pristine packs for resale...maybe.

In terms of pricey? I got 12 full art shiny vaults. 2 most expensive other than Charizard are Darkrai and Gardevoir. I have potential PSA 10s with Articuno and Darkrai

Sold my first thing on eBay.

Sold for $35 (4x Hidden Fates Boosters) which means after fees and shipping cost, I'm left with $27. It cost me a smidge over $17 for the tin. So like $10 profit and I still have the empty tin and GX card I could sell.

The profit would be good if things sold quicker. Feel like I would have to have 50-100+ items listed at any given time with like 10 items selling a day for it to be worth investing any time into. Maybe if I just sell in bigger bulk or something.

I wanted to see what the market is like so I know what is worth buying and what isn't whenever I see the stuff. Then if things start to become sparse or go up in price I can hold off on selling.

Like the Detective Pikachu stuff seems like a good deal but nobody buys or looks at it so buying more seems pointless as I'll take forever to sell what I already have.

Shining Legends stuff is easily accessible to me in local stores right now but if it doesn't sell much, there's no point me buying tons of stock of it. Right now it seems to get more views on eBay than other stuff but isn't selling so I probably have it overpriced.

Hidden Fates stuff is still accessible at a good price on GameStop so that seems worth stocking up on more. So I'll probably keep selling that and buy more too just so I don't have thousands of dollars of shit in my house

As one who doesn't keep up with prices, does this pay for your $1100, then?

Yes, I can easily make up the $1100 I have spent if I wanted to.

Yes, my wife was already saying I was hoarding too many things! lol! I'm having fun. In my ebay store, I'm still struggling to sell my promo cards and extras right now, but the demand should come. It is also getting views, but I think people are looking for potential psa 10s, so I might have to reconsider how I list things. My animal crossing cards are still selling for $30-$100 per day which is wild.

Yeah, it also helps to sell small things to increase your limits so you can work on getting good feedback and more listings. You won't go from 0 to 100 and it might take a month or three to get something started, but you'll have more freedom as you can list more things.

Yeah the plus point for me is that the post office is enroute to work to me on a very quiet road with little traffic. So for me to drop stuff off in the dropbox would literally add 1-2 minutes to my journey since I can print labels at home. Having stuff for sale and just dropping it off whenever it sells shouldn't be a big deal. Right now I'm on furlough so my time is whatever right now (post office is like 7-8 mins away)

What I might start doing is 'Mystery packs' to shift slower selling stuff. Like 2 Det Pikachu boosters, 1-2 random boosters and a random GX card for like $15 or something. Maybe toss in one of those pins and call it $18.

My advice there would be to show the breakdown of what is distributed in the packs, and offer something sought after in there. I might be doing a similar thing!

I could probably sell mystery packs with a guaranteed shiny vault card and regular holo for $20, tbh. Using only my doubles and putting umbreon in the mix
