Who We Are and What We Do.
sportscards is a universal tool to research all areas of collectibles. Our concept is to help buyers find the best deal possible by comparing active and sold items, allow dealers to identify the best price to sell an item for in order to keep profit turning and for collectors to keep track of their collectibles’ value. The Site offers users, members, and subscribers the ability to research collectible items posted for sale, compare active and sold pricing to determine what they should pay or sell items for, and to see what their items for sale may potentially be worth. All of the listings on the Site are generated from eBay through an API. sportscards is an eBay Compatible Application.

Items listed for sale on the Site are not the property of sportscards. Any sales transaction occurs between the seller of the item and the buyer, and sportscards does not play any role in the transfer of ownership of the goods purchased from the seller to the buyer.
