About Dealernet

Overview

Dealernet is the original bid - ask marketplace servicing the sports card industry.  Founded in January, 2001, it has since proved to be the leading online e-commerce site for thousands of sportscard, gaming and collectibles traders as both a marketplace and a source of timely information for sealed boxes and cases.  Live buy and sell offers on thousands of products are displayed using the same technology and layout as level 2 stock market trading platforms.  Click on a buy or sell listing, enter the quantity and within 3-7 business days payment and/or product is received by the two parties involved.  No middleman is needed, allowing for quick and efficient transactions to be completed on thousands of boxes daily.

The prices of boxes and cases are determined as vendors place bids to buy or sell.  A bid is the price at which somebody wishes to buy, and an ask is the price at which somebody wishes to sell.

The overall market is made up of thousands of traders, who may have differing ideas about the current value of a specific box and thus the price at which they are willing to buy or sell it. Dealernet provides a platform where such trading can be easily conducted by matching buyers and sellers of boxes and providing live and efficient market data for user analysis. Dealernet membership allows users to compare pricing on boxes quickly and be able to trade with over 1500 vendors worldwide on a secure, private platform.

Dealernet also offers a fascinating example of the laws of supply and demand at work in real time. For every transaction, there must be a buyer and a seller. Because of the immutable laws of supply and demand, if there are more buyers for a specific box than there are sellers of it, the price will trend up. Conversely, if there are more sellers than buyers, the price will trend down.  By utilizing the exclusive Dealernet history price guide feature, members have the ability to easily check comps on every release from the past 30 years when visiting an LCS or even the NSCC.
