Is ebay the best site to get the most $ for a rare tee?

Fri Nov 16, 2018 6:39 pm

Is ebay the best site to get the most $ for a rare tee? (Hoping for a bidding war). Or are there better selling sites out there? I suppose Instagram is an option, with a set price. But as far as auction...do a lot of serious vintage tshirt buyers still go to ebay first?

Has anyone ever run an auction on IG, and if so, how?

I think so - but I don't know if auctions are the way to go anymore. Seems like they are mostly dealers buying to resell. IG not the way to go.

Yeah I agree.
The only reason to sell something at auction nowadays is when you KNOW you'll get a bidding war. Never hope you will.
I've sold some incredibly rare stuff over the years at auction. If it's a smaller target market then your items might sell for much less than they're worth. If you know it's something that a lot of people will want, sometimes you can get more than what it's worth.

With selling t-shirts, it's easier to just put a price on them. They hardly take up any storage room so it doesn't really matter if they sit on eBay for a year before they sell.
