Do you enjoy flipping cards on eBay as much as I do?
As a football fan and an entrepreneur, nothing is more fun than having an opinion about a player or a team and being able to turn a profit on it if you’re correct. There are quite a few ways to play it if making a few dollars is your goal.
In fantasy football, an educated and well-studied fan can parlay their research into a dominant team. If you’re lucky enough to survive an entire season through injuries and other variables, you might win your league’s trophy, cash and bragging rights. If you aren’t, there’s a good chance you’ll lose your entire buy-in.
Flipping cards is a whole lot of fun. For example, if you decide to invest in a young player's cards with the potential of flipping it for profit, the best-case scenario is that they break out and the card shoots up in value. But even on the flip side, where the player doesn’t perform as expected or gets injured, at least you've still added a rad card to your collection. Plus your card still retains value.
When you're flipping cards, one of the most important considerations is timing. You need to be ready and able to transact at any time, so that if the player snags a huge game-winning touchdown or has a record-breaking game, you’re ready to capitalize on the moment.
The great news is that the eBay vault is here—and it’s a card flipper's best friend.
With the eBay vault, instant transfer becomes a reality as card collectors, flippers and investors can now transact in real-time—eliminating the need for shipping expenses, taxes and most importantly, the time it takes to send and receive cards. You can transfer ownership immediately, so that when your player catches that game-winning TD, the new owner can purchase and take possession of that card in seconds.
In this article, I’m going to talk you through how I started flipping the cards of one of my favorite rookies—Garrett Wilson—who just so happens to play for my favorite football team: the New York Jets. Follow along as I send a 2021 Select XRC PSA 10 card to the eBay vault—the premier, 24/7 secure facility and digital marketplace for trading card collectors with no sales tax, storage or selling fees—and then flip it.
