The BMP generally gets a bad rap out there for it's pricing. I've also heard that Burbank Sportscards in particular is totally out of hand on pricing. Everyone is welcome to their opinion, so here's mine.
To me anyways, the BMP is the most collector friendly of all the online sites. My recent calculations conclude that the site has 112 million cards on it or nearly 20 times as many as COMC has on it, and EBAY is even further behind.
The Beckett Marketplace also features a 25 cent minimum price and I'm guessing there are well over 25 million cards at that price on there. Compared to EBAY $1.00 minimum and COMC 45 cent minimum, that's a BIG difference!
The BMP also features dealers with large qty's of a given card, where as EBAY and COMC usually offer just one or small qty's at best.
Most dealers also feature a free s/h policy at $50.00 for singles in the Continental USA. So a customer could conceivably buy 200 different cards from a single dealer at 25 cents per for $50.00 dlvd. What would that cost on EBAY if the cards were even available there (most aren't these days btw)? $200 plus s/h from each individual dealer, that's how much. COMC isn't a much better option as 25 cents is built into every price already, plus there's additional s/h on top of that.
I can't speak for the rest of the BMP but I will tell all of you that we work very hard to give our customers the best possible shopping experience. We stock over 38 million cards on our site, our turn around times are the best in the business (just check our feedback here), and we've sold over 90,000 cards this MONTH alone on the BMP so we must be doing something right.
As far as make an offer goes, it's coming and it's coming soon. Lots of other collector friendly additions are coming as well that will make the BMP even better.
