  • What are everyone's thoughts on this? I know it is trading card only right now, but how long before they expand?

    https://www.ebay.com/vlt/enrollment/?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&campid=5336824214&toolid=10001

    It makes it nice when buying/selling because you can know that the card exists and is in the condition said, etc. But something tells me this is just ultimately not going to be safe long term.

  • I can understand someone who buys high value cards as an investment who don't know the hobby inside and out, using this service as a piece of mind step along the way.
    However If I purchased a card worth that much I would want it in hand as much as I'd want my CGC slabs in hand as well.

    I understand that branching out as a business is important for future success but ebay has so many issues that should be fixed way before a new endeavor.

    For buyers and sellers alike there are bugs like the send offer to buyers bug that happened, and the fee structures moving constantly. 30 million user uploaded pictures just vanishing from listings and so on.

    There are other vault companies out there with better reputations in the hobby and ebay is struggling to stay competitive even in its own market.

    I love ebay I just wish ebay loved ebay, and not the opinions of it's shareholders over what actually built it into what it is the end users.

    Hopefully that didn't come across as too scathing but I am really passionate about customer service and the bigger ebay gets the more that part of the company gets drug behind the horse so to speak....

  • This is a hard pass for me if it ever went into the comics department. As the previous person said, you're one hack away from losing a collection at any given time.
