Unbelievable

Think i am going to start a policy of every time i have to relist on ebay it goes up by the fees to do it, or a tenner depending on mood

I look at teams on S 'something' and my prices are half of those in better boxes and condition too....sorry (?)

Still selling but the prices are poor, do a LOT better on private deals thru here or 'ask seller' on Ebay
always open to offers

Ebay is a total disaster now. All the fakes have killed the market
Prices are becoming lower and lower for the easy to find teams. The medium have still some good results caused to base combos, reference on box etc,, but rare teams are increasing a lot the final prices.

Fake teams is always a open problem, since when I joined to the forum about 10 years ago... I have worked out the problem, beacause when I have the minimal suspect regarding the seller and what he is selling, I don't bid !
In the last years I have reduced the 99% the fake teams !
What is the problem on ebay, in my opinion, are the poor description of the conditions of the players... Numbers on backs, invisible regluing in the photo, spare players, etc, etc.
May start everything at a tenner and see what happens
A friend of mine, here in Italy, lot of years ago told me "start at a lower price, people enjoy to make bid..."
I have to say that it works, but not for the easy to find teams...

Yes , only a few bacause , in my opinion your starting prices were too high (or teams ended too high).
But prices are a personal opinion and I don't want to say that you are wrong with them.

That's a fair comment i have no problem there, starting prices are really the minimum i would be happy with for a said item

eBay has really gone off the boil over the last year+. Too many dodgy teams or buy it nows for several 100.
In the last calendar year I must have bought about a couple of teams on there.
Current spares: Brescia x2 light blue inner, white outer, PMs please if you can help.

I only really buy Scalex on there now Pete, selling all my h/w apart from a few of the West Ham sides
I still want the 1-190 but i'm happy to paint them on Santiago/Top Spin...they do the same thing
No room for the stadium now so my impetus is completely gone, plus my lad of 5 would kill it :angry:

Got some private deals going most times even as i speak so ebays just a shop window at present, mind you sold a bit yesterday but its SNAIL speed

Certainly not dropping out the hobby just want to release some funds to buy other things, and now TS have a decent hw rep i can't see the point in hording high value collectables
Still painting too but i use Santiago as its more cost effective, and i like the base colours better
