Score Board

Welcome to the “Score Board”!  The “Score Board” is a place where you can tell the world about your recent “scores”!  I hope that it will become an educational resource for eBay sellers.   Learn about what sells by checking the “Score Board” on a regular basis!


The more “scores” submitted, the better!  Here’s how it works:


1.  Enter your name, email, and website address (if you have one) below.


2. Send me a brief description of your recent “score” along with a picture of the item you sold.


3. Be sure to mention your userid and/or store name so that people can check out your other goodies. (Free advertising.  Yay!)


4. If possible, send me a link to the item.


Hope to hear from you soon!

    I buy bulk CDs and DVDs. Got a good deal on over 1000 CDs for about 3 cents each.

    Sold this one for $23.00 (over half of what I paid for the entire lot).

    What sells on eBay?

    Arita buttons! Beautiful Japanese porcelain, circa 1930’s imported to the US in the ’50’s, these buttons rocked on eBay! I had 6 of them and sold them for $232! I sold one in just 6 hours. Then had a set of 5 for $200 or best offer and blew that by counteroffering. Who wouldn’t take $175 for 5 buttons? My counter was declined. I learned a big lesson! Dickering is better done in person. Listing closed no sale. I relisted a set of 3 which auctioned for $102! And sold the other 2 for $40 each. I ended up selling the set of 5 for $182.

      Careful with shipping of perfumes. ALL perfumes have to ship via ground shipping (first class or parcel select) due to flammability. They CANNOT be shipped internationally.

    I keep an eye on Pyrex sales and go to EBay’s sold listings all the time and then sort by highest price sold. I was in an antique store by me and saw a piece of Pyrex that rang a bell. I bought it for $49 and sold it for $295.00!

      Wow! I’ve never had much luck with Pyrex. I should give it a second look!

      • Kim Dermit says:

        I think that antique stores are a good spot to look because a lot of those sellers put items in there and then forget about them. If they’re not keeping current pricing with how high the prices are going online, you can get a great deal like I did!

    • Gladys Tineo says:

      I love these! I have tons of Pyrex items so I’m thinking of selling some of those on Ebay as well.

      Wish me luck!! 🙂

    Both of these shirts were picked up at different Goodwills for $1.29. The ’80s blue Nike was BIN at $74.99. The Santa Monica Track Club was listed at $149, but I took an offer of $100 since it was from the same buyer. These days are rare but encouraging when they happen. I always give 10% to a charity relevant to the item, so it’s a “win,win,win.” Here are the links:

      How did you know these worth so much? I would have passed them over.

      • funguyfinds says:

        There is no T-shirt price guide. Its a formula of cultural relevance, rarity and function. These shirts are over 30 years old and comes with the stench of authenticity…which, to a certain demographic, is a status symbol. The buyer remarked that he has been looking for the Nike shirt for over 5 years (possibly nostalgia). I overpaid once for a 1984 Olympic shirt because it reminded me of my grandfather and it was in a size that I can wear. I’m a graphic designer by trade and can spot a valuable shirt in the same way that someone can discern amber and bakelite. Although I have struck out on overproduced reprints before. You always continue to learn and maybe one day I will have an interest in knives and flatware.

      • ebaylife says:

        Thanks for the info! Did you find any in the completed listings or are these that rare?

      • funguyfinds says:

        None on completed listings so it was all a calculated hunch 🙂 It also sold overnight so part of me thinks I should have priced it higher. Then again its part of the wonders of eBay. The right buyer at the right time for the right price.

    I bought this “Sunset Gallery” Christmas Stocking Crewel Kit at a church sale (fill a bag for $5 – so this probably cost me .50). I should have known something was up when it got a bid about 30 minutes after I listed it! It sold for $81!!

  17. Nancy says:

    Purchased this Edward Gorey rubber stamp for $1. Got $36 for it. It was the only one listed on ebay.

  18. Tina says:

    I paid $1.75 for all of these vintage coffee cups. They are Farfel from the Nestle commericals back in the 50s 60s. I got $49.99 plus shipping at an auction. Very happy with that score.
