Which of These Items Did You Sell on eBay in the 2000s?

Were you one of the sellers who sold velour tracksuits on eBay in 2003? What about Pokémon goods in 2000? Or fidget spinners in 2017?

eBay took a look back at top trends from the 2000s, and it brings back memories of the fads and fashion that in some cases, we'd probably all like to forget.

One of the biggest fad on eBay was surely the Beanie Babies - Fortune said at one point, the stuffed toys accounted for 10% of eBay's sales. But they ruled in the 1990s, with signs of their crash surfacing in 1999, according to Fortune.

You can review the top shopped retrospective on the eBay corporate blog, and let us know what items you remember selling - the fun, the quirky, the lucrative. And any guesses about future fads as we dive into a new decade?

Of the items listed, I sold Simpsons memorabilia, and superhero items. I just wish I had The Child (aka Baby Yoda) items to sell at Christmas as I could probably retire with the money I'd make.

I sold Beanie Babies in the late 90's nothing compares to those good old days.
