That the vintage stitching correct? I see running shirts for races all the time, how do you decide which to pick up?

Age, and interesting graphics. I'm not an expert on them though. The best ones I had were from the early 80s with characters on them. I think in general you just have to consider how attention-grabbing the design is.

Cool. My best flips have been some obscure Disney ones ans a "Make 7 Up Yours" 7up tee. Both went for over 20.

Thanks for the pic.
Do you normally list them BIN or auction?
post #155 of 162
I've done auctions for mine, and then if they don't sell I move them to Bin. It's a little like fishing, just wait for the rightperson to come along and see it

Again, thanks for the info. Mind PMing me your eBay name so I can follow?

I do BIN at my ideal price and also give an option for OBO.  I find that 50% of the time people just pay what I ask.  I'm sure I miss out on some money, but when I'm only investing $1 per shirt I'd prefer to have a high turnover rate.

Makes sense. I'll have to see if I can find some cheaper shirts in the area and expand my selling portfolio.

That's the beauty of tshirts
Very cheap to buy, great margins, and easy to post and ship.

T-shirts here are about $2 less than a BB sport coat and only ~$10 less than a suit.

That sucks. Most of our shops have tshirts at a buck

Actually, I'm always appalled at shirt prices.  All the GWs near me lump Tees in with polos, sweats, dress shirts, and charge $5.  Savers also charges $5.  SA is the only shop I can find that charges $1.  Luckily they have ~40 feet of racks, so there's plenty to choose from.
