They’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year (or in the case of 2020, 366 days). Some of the top eBay sports card sellers may prefer auctions while others go the straight sales route. No matter the method, it’s clear that trading cards are still among the strongest movers on the entire eBay platform.
WebRetailer.com, in conjunction with Marketplace Pulse has released their annual lists of the top 1,000 eBay sellers in the world and it’s a group that includes several dealers that will be familiar to sports collectors. In all, four sports card companies ranked among the top 20 eBay sellers in the United States.
The rankings are based on the number of feedback ratings given to each seller in 2019. Not all buyers leave feedback, of course, so the score is less than the number of items each seller actually processed but does provide a glimpse into each seller’s volume.
Topping the list is auction specialist Greg Morris Cards. The long-time California-based dealer ranked 15th in the world and eighth in the United States, having gained 298,000 feedback ratings last year. He was the only dealer on the overall U.S. top 10 list to have a perfect 100 percent score.
Morris sells primarily higher-grade vintage cards, offering thousands of cards in auction-style listing each week (you can see them here).
Right behind Morris was COMC, which allows consignment sellers on its platform to cross list their inventory on eBay and began running auctions late last year. COMC is the 16th ranked seller in the world and sits ninth among U.S.-based accounts.
Burbank Sports Cards (216,000 feedback mentions in 2019) and consignment seller Probstein123 (190,000) also ranked in the top 20 on the American seller list. Burbank has over 2.6 million cards from its massive inventory for purchase on eBay, while Probstein does both auctions and Buy it Now.
