Would buyers just as soon pay a fixed price for your Nolan Ryan rookie card?
You’d never know it from all of the auction catalogs floating around major card shows and arriving in the mailboxes of serious collectors at a steady pace but is it possible we’re getting tired of bidding wars?

If you believe the business insiders who follow such things, eBay’s recent moves to curry favor with fixed price sellers might just reflect a national trend–not just with sports stuff, but anything else for which shoppers might be in the market.
At least that’s what Business Week magazine seemed to discover when it delved into the subject.
They say the thrill and novelty of auctions have given way to the convenience of one-click purchases.
Are some of these cards better sold in fixed price auctions?
