I list cards and they sell occasionally, but most of the time the cards I list just sit there for months and I keep relisting as an auction so that I don't have to pay listing fees.

i wont ever get rich doing it, but im paying the bills and i havent had a boss in 7 years. and i can work in my boxers, take breaks for hoops whenever i want, and if im having a bad day, i can have a guinness or four at lunch
that being said, me and the wife are trying for a kid, so ill probably go get a 9-5, take ebay to part time, drop the GIS work, and only do the highest end appraisals
