Pokemon Cards took the world by storm in the late 1990s. Almost everyone was collecting them. Then the craze died down a bit before making a comeback with the Pokemon Go game for smartphones in 2016, which revived Pokemon Card collecting again as well.
If you were one of the millions of people who collected Pokemon cards at some point, chances are you have a huge collection on your hands, and maybe you don’t want it anymore. Maybe it’s time to sell.
Where should you consider selling your Pokemon card collection? Well, it depends what’s most important to you, but here are the places we suggest:
Selling your Pokemon cards on Craigslist is a good option if you’re looking for a fairly low-effort online sale. Selling on Craigslist usually only yields decent results if you live in a well-populated area because that gives you the best chance at finding a willing buyer. However there is some work involved, such as taking good pictures, writing a good description, setting the price correctly, answering questions and arranging the transaction.
Selling any collectible on eBay can be a blessing and a curse. On one-hand, you’re exposed to many, many potential buyers in an auction environment, which usually yields a pretty good selling price. However, selling on eBay takes a LOT of work and a LOT of luck — even if you take perfect pictures, write the perfect description, answer every single question you get and post at the perfect time, there’s no guarantee your items will sell. That’s a lot of work to go through for nothing, and can upset many people.
Local Collectibles Store
Selling your Pokemon cards to your local collectibles store is always a safe, fast way to an all-cash transaction. However, of all the selling options we’ve listed here, you will probably be offered the lowest buying price here. But that’s the trade-off you make between getting the best price possible and having the smoothest transaction possible.
As we mentioned, you usually have to choose between a fast and easy transaction and a high selling price. Not with Neatstuff Collectibles.
We buy and sell millions of dollars of collectibles each year because we offer top dollar for your collectibles and we make the transaction so easy it’s like dealing with your local collectibles store! If we like what you have we will even travel to you to analyze and potentially make an all-cash offer.
