I used to buy quite a few cards from sportlots to help finish raw sets.

But now they changed the site format and it is even slower than before.

Plus it seems more difficult to find what I am looking for.

Anybody else have comments?

I almost have several times, but it just doesn't seen very "solid" to me. I'm in the IT business, and "iffy" site to me screams "iffy product".

I've used sportslots a lot- never had a problem. It's an easy way to fill in modern sets that are missing cheap cards. Not like there are shows or stores anymore

I've used Sportslots, but its not the easiest site I have ever used. Fills a need though for me.

I've only been a buyer on Sportlots, but it's a valuable resource for modern player collectors. Thus far, I've had zero issue.

As a seller, I suggest creating your own eCrater store. Google searches include eCrater stores and I've gotten buyers just because of unpaid Google ads.

I have bought a ton over the last couple of years.

I have also sold a decent amount.

My concern is the recent changes to the site had made things slower and more cumbersome.

I hope the site improvements keep coming, but I also hope for better speed.

I've used it many times, but it certainly isn't the easiest or fastest of sites.

I bought and sold. Not going to get rich by selling there. I like it to help fill in newer sets if you need some singles. The new changes only make the site harder to navigate. I liked it the old way.

I have a huge batch of 82-84 Topps that I need to toss up there just to see if I can move some of them. I know I am never going to get rich but those cards sitting in the box arent going to sell themselves either

I agree but when you have 16+ other folks selling the same card for .18 cents and 1 power seller selling the same card for .16 cents it's going to take some luck to get an order.
