CL Update: New Shop and Sales History

Card Ladder
Dec 6, 20212 min read

While Collectors Universe acquisition of Card Ladder was the talk of the town last week. We dropped a completely new feature in addition to improving and expanding our shop.

All Time Sales History:

Card Ladder’s All Time Sales History feature is possibly the biggest and best feature ever released. Although this might sound like an exaggeration, it cannot be put into words how helpful, informative, and useful this feature is.

Search for any card you can think of and you will be able to see its all time sales history. Not just 30 days, or 90 days, or 365 days but ALL TIME history of the card. In today's era of sports cards, we understand how important comps are when buying and or selling cards. When it comes to rare cards that do not sell often, it just doubles an already arduous task of comping a card.

Using the Stephen Curry 2009 Topps Chrome Refractor as an example we can see what this card sold for in September of 2009 all the way up to present day. A great thing about this feature is the card does not have to be in the Card Ladder database, any card can be searched. If you are still having trouble valuing a card after looking at the all time sales history well no problem!

Just simply click on the listing of your choice and you will see the Card Ladder estimated value with the explanation below. While the pricing estimates are not 100% accurate and still a work in progress, it is the same formula used for our already existing price check feature. On our home page you will see the Daily Sales Volume update with the CL Value Accuracy shown, as of 12/6 it is at 70%.

In addition to that we are using the sales data from 9 different websites, not just eBay. If you only want to look at 1 of those 9 platforms you can simply go to the filter tab and pick the auction house of your choosing.

New Shop:

Our new and improved shop allows you to buy from a variety of websites including Ebay, Myslabs, PWCC, and Heritage. You can also change the listing type from auction, buy now, or buy now with best offer. The shop automatically shows items with the least amount of time left but you can also have results show up as price, watchers, and bids.
