    Would anyone be interested in selling items on our site in an eBay fashion? I thought that perhaps since we have a captive Packers (and some what NFL) audience that this may be a good venue to institue this type of functionality. Now whether there is a demand for the service, is another whole aspect of the issue.

    Let me know if anyone out there would be interested in 1. selling items (I would assume Packers or sports related, but really doesn't matter to me) and 2. would people be interested in purchasing items from sellers on the site here.

    Any other positives or negatives that you could see coming with this functionality?

    You'd better be careful so as not to have to assume liability for any faulty transactions.

    If you, Ryan, were selling things, that's one issue. If you let other people sell on your site like eBay, I know that's not a road I would want to journey down on my site. Just sounds risky.

    Beyond that I'm not really interested, but thought I would give you my 2 cents.

    That's cool, there will be plenty of diclaimers written by my attorney, no worries there. Anyone that tries to come back on me will not get too far.

    Or what we could do is I list the items in a store front, you paypal the money to me as an "escrow service" and then once you receive the goods, I send the money to the seller. Man that sounds like a lot of work though.

    I don't know exactly how it would work, just throwing it out there for now.

    Nice to see you back out on the site though Rabid!

    If it is quality I'm hanging on to it. If it is a Hunt or Marshall Jersey...Some comedian might buy them.

    My worn out can cooler, round bottomed stein, and other items aren't worth the shipping costs.

    Hardcore fans don't sell. It is an idea to put on hold.

    Ryan I would suggest a simple classified type system. I would stay away from auction type stuff. Whereas a classified system the responsibilty and liabilty for the sale and transfer of Items is the Sellers/buyers responsabilty.

    And I hate Pay pal and no offense I dont trust anyone with my money.

    Actually, earlier today - we were at a place (under the Hooter's Corporate Umbrella) called Beer Sellar - and one of the former original Managers who opened up the place... came strollin' back in, from his free weekend away from Nashville (he's the guy that got the Nashville Packerbackers their gig at the Hangout they now use) - so, ol' Sean and I are yakkin' - he tends to wear his IPB t-shirt while he's behind the Bar down in Nashville - which causes all sorts of raves from the gang down there - everyone wants to buy the (proverbial) shirt off his back, they (apparently) like it THAT much.... i guess you could put it up to how the Clubs all have a symbiosis, like Kin do.... but, anyways..... 1.) it was great seein' Sean and we'll probably do a roadtrip down his way next season to hang with the Nashville PackerBackers... 2.) after readin' this post... it strikes me that maybe (just maybe) there's a few others who wouldn't mind grabbin one of our Club's shirts, as well.

    What dya think, RYAN? (which leads back to that 'other' conversation you & I were havin'....)

    Just curious.....!

    I hope this is okay Ryan. I'm a big Packer fan and a "poster" on this site and am not trying to spam, just thought some other Packer fans might want to add to their collection.

    Yeah - but man... the calories.. 'specially the Gravedigger stuff, eh? [GRin]

    I also have two of the Wheaties boxes, with the SB31 crew and Favre3xMVP in my cabinet.

    Other than that - I figure the cat would get into it.

    Great stuff, tho'

    Now.....i don't KNOW if you did or not.........but it's best to take the cereal out to store those collectibles. Keeps the mice and stuff from attacking it. (You may have done so already, but there might be someone that doesn't know that)
    And with soda or beer cans, if there's a CHANCE they could freeze where you store them, punch a hole in the bottom of the can to let the contents out. This saves the seal on the top of the can. Makes it easy/ safe to store them.
