Rare £1 coin with error sells for fortune on eBay – and you could have one too – Daily Star

Are you a rare coin collector? In recent weeks we’ve seen a range of rare 50p coins sell for more than its face value. Previously, a rare Kew Gardens 50p coin sold for a whopping 300 times more than its original amount on eBay. Meanwhile, a Blue Peter coin proved popular too as it flogged for under £300. Now it looks as though it’s not just 50p coins that collectors want, it’s also £1 coins too. Earlier this month a rare £1 coin with a notable minting error sold for £206 online. The coin is a copy of the new British pound which entered circulation in 2017, but a design error meant that it was worth a fortune. You could have a coin with a minting error in your pocket (Image: Getty Images) It is supposed to have a gold coloured outer-rim (nickel-brass) and a silver coloured middle (nickel-plated alloy).…

Chris Eubank Jr’s microwave sells for £66,000 on eBay – ‘That escalated quickly.’ » Brinkwire

A microwave signed by boxer Chris Eubank Jr attracted a bid of £66,000 on eBay. When Chris Eubank Jr was returning to his hotel in Newcastle after a training session last week, he didn’t expect to be asked to sign a microwave. He also didn’t expect that agreeing to scribble his autograph on the item would later cost him £66,000. After learning the microwave was up for auction Eubank Jr, 32, pledged to match the winning bid with a donation to charity. He tweeted “Been sent a link to an eBay auction thats selling the microwave I signed in Newcastle. “No idea how much it’ll go for but to make this a more meaningful situation whatever the winning bid is I’ll match it and give the money to a charity of the winners choice.” His classy gesture duly prompted frenzied interest as bids suddenly ramped up, and on Thursday night the…

What’s Hot: Appetite for Boxes, Hot Players Still Hearty – Sports Collectors Daily

You are here: Home / Hobby Shop Talk / What’s Hot: Appetite for Boxes, Hot Players Still Hearty October 25, 2021 By Mike Fruitman As always it is an interesting time to own a card shop.  In between either answering questions from collectors who are wondering what will eventually happen when Fanatics becomes more involved with the sports card community OR being “told” what will happen, it is still pretty insane at my shop these days. Pretty much from when the door pops to when things shut down for the day, collectors are still clamoring for seemingly every new release and every player who is playing well as the football season progresses.  Special thanks go out to Jameis Winston who (for a short amount of time) even made 2015 NFL products popular.  Yes, 2015 NFL actually sold well enough to help reclaim some space on my shelf that I never…

Fulfilled by eCommeleon – Selling to Europe simplified – Tamebay

Almost two years since Brexit came into effect many British retailers are still struggling to find their feet across the pond in mainland Europe with increased shipping rates, delivery delays, new tax & customs clearance requirements, just the start of the myriad issues that stand in the way of returning to pre-Brexit revenues (let alone profits). In fact one stat suggests that almost 70% of UK sellers on Amazon Germany have now stopped selling on the marketplace! For all but the largest retailers, the investment in time, energy, resources and of course, money is not justifiable, leading to many online sellers giving up on any hopes of finding an easy way of selling via European marketplaces again, until now. “Having helped UK retailers expand into European marketplaces since 2007, the team behind eCommeleon felt obligated to create a solution to help small and medium-sized retailers tackle all of these demands…

Sellers are speculating that eBay will now allow them to list contemporary nude art photographs in the Collectibles category after banning them over the summer. But because there was no announcement, they are unsure.eBay eliminated its entire Adult Only category this summer, but allowed sellers to move certain adult items to other categories as long as they didn’t contain sexual content. In the case of items in Adult Only Collectibles and Adult Only Art, sellers could relist them in one of four other categories as long as they did not contain sexual content (provocative sexual poses, for example) and sellers made sure to include the Item Specific, “Subject: Nudes.”In the email eBay sent in May, the allowed categories were the following:- Art categories- Collectibles > Paper > Pin Up >Vintage (Pre-1970)- Collectibles > Postcards > Risqué- Collectibles > Photographic Images > Risqué > Vintage & Antique (Pre-1940)So presumably if you had nude art…

1970-71 Topps Basketball Set Loaded With Stars, Key Rookies – Sports Collectors Daily

Basketball cards seemed like a tall order for Topps during the 1960s, but the card company came up with back-to-back “tall boy” sets and an intriguing product. The tall boys were similar to the design used for the 1965 Topps football set. The ’65 set revolved around one star —  Joe Namath — and the 1970-71 Topps basketball set also was notable for the hottest rookie to enter the NBA in years. That would be Pete Maravich, and his rookie card is the main draw for this 175-card issue. It was the first time Topps had two series for a basketball set. Topps had tried a basketball set in 1957-58, and Fleer took a shot with NBA cards in 1961-62, but neither product caught on. But with the Celtics’ dominance of the 1960s winding down and the retirement of Boston center Bill Russell, plus the anticipation of UCLA star Lew Alcindor joining the…
