eBay announced the availability of a new research tool on a third-party site. The publisher, PWCC, sells trading cards on the eBay platform. eBay said PWCC’s tool provides over 250 million data points that leverages historical trends of all cards that were sold on eBay’s platform for the past 15 years.
Note that last year, PWCC became part of a select few participating in eBay’s Consignment service.
PWCC Marketplace, the largest auctioneer of investment-caliber trading cards, just announced the launch of a new research tool that will give investors access to 15 years’ worth of trading cards sales data. Titled Market Price Research, PWCC, in partnership with eBay, is leveraging over 250 million data points to showcase dates, prices, and card types, which will provide the basis of the new tool and is part of PWCC’s suite of investor services available for free to the general public.
This newly extended library of data will arm buyers who are looking to make investments in trading cards with the statistics and analysis needed to make informed purchases, while also providing predictive data on the card’s future value. The data leverages historical trends of all cards that were sold on eBay’s platform for the past 15 years.
“There has never been anything like this in the trading card market,” said Brent Huigens, president of PWCC. “Investors will be able to keyword search specific cards and have access to that card’s sales data for the past 15 years. We want to empower investors with an unprecedented access to data, so they can make smart investing decisions.”
PWCC has been a longtime Top-Rated Seller on the eBay platform.
Through PWCC’s unique market platform, PWCC helps to reach 10 times more buyers than any other venue and connects PWCC consignors with over 250,000 prospective buyers.
“In recent years, we’ve seen modern cards breaking records on our platform and we’re thrilled to evolve our partnership with PWCC,” said Sam Bright, senior director of Art & Collectibles at eBay. “Together, with the Market Price Research tool, we are offering our 171 million active buyers the resources to take their investments in card collecting to the next level.”
