T206 Auction Best Way to Build Your Collection

Prior to the invention of eBay, finding a T206 auction meant going to places like Teletrade, where it was anyone's guess whether the card actually matched the description.  Prior to that, your only option was going to a larger card show, where you might run into a few dealers who had them.

Life is much better these days for T206 baseball collectors.

Yes, prices are higher, but that was really inevitable as more people latched on to this classic set and baseball cards of rare vintage really started to prove their worth as investments.

Your opportunities for building a really nice collection are much greater.  Major card shows are still here.  Catalog auctions have exploded in the last fifteen years and eBay is now a household name.

Auctions for T206 cards on eBay can be found 365 days per year, 24 hours per day.  Some are 'Buy it Now' straight sales while others bring the fun of an auction to the table.  It can be argued that prices for T206 cards are as fair as they'll ever be since the going rates are really determined by bidder interest.  Price guides are outdated as soon as they're printed.  eBay, however, is a dynamic marketplace, where a quick search of completed items can offer a true answer for what the cards are worth.

Dealers are putting their entire inventories on eBay now.  Sometimes prices seem high, but if there's a "submit best offer" option, why not take a shot?  Maybe the seller is motivated.  All he can do is say no.  I wouldn't insult the seller with a ridiculously lowball bid, but be somewhere in the ballpark and he'll at least consider it.

A T206 auction  can help you build a nice collection quickly and if you're buying graded cards, there's also a nice, safe feeling that what you're buying is the real deal.
