    I agree that it is not hard to find better deals than you can on ebay, however if someone has an item for sale on there and it does, in fact, sell for that price...

    Well, I can hardly call that overpriced :P someone wanted it right?

    But there again, a second thing I agree on. If you want to know how much something sells for in a certain place, you should poll that place. Ebay won't tell you muchabout how much something will sell for on GameGavel.

    GameGavel.com - FREE 4 ALL ANNOUNCEMENT

    Hello everyone,

    As you know we have been hammering out GameGavel for almost four years. In this time it has sold a few hundred thousand dollars for our sellers but it needs a big time boost! So we are making the decision to upgrade everyone's account to a FREE SELLER ACCOUNT. So, if you are a member of GameGavel you will now have a free account for life on our system. And if you are not a member of GameGavel you have through this evening to get an account so you can also take advantage of this upgrade. Again, all members will pay no listing or selling fees whatsoever!

    We are currently sitting at 5700 members. We have grown our Facebook fan page to over 5,000 members. We figure we have around 10,000 unique people tied to the site in some form or fashion and want to take this base of users/fans to help us turn up the volume to 10!

    The one potential disadvantage of opening up this many free seller accounts is that sellers won't have a vested interest in running quality listings since you are paying nothing. So I beg all of you to educate yourselves on the items you are listing and create a listing that will sell your item or promote bidding (quality item photos, descriptions, realistic selling prices/starting bids/reserves, etc). Unlike eBay, you aren't being charged anything, so please step it up and create a listing that would entice you as a buyer.

    Next, promoting your listings is a must. You all are used to promoting your eBay listings in the forums. You have to do the same thing with your GameGavel listings. There is more competition than ever for your items and you need to do your best to promote them to the people in your gaming circles.

    It is my hope this will reinvigorate all of you with GameGavel accounts to step it up and come together so we can all show the gamers in the country, millions of them, we have a better alternative to eBay and they should all come over here to buy and sell.

    After the mass upgrade has been completed, those of you who have set up subscriptions through our system using Paypal can go into your Paypal accounts and cancel your subscriptions so our system won't be charging you anymore. Please wait to do this until we notify you the upgrade has been completed so you won’t lose your existing listings (if applicable).

    Please help us and your fellow gamers by listing a few things and promoting your listings on the forums you visit and also on our fast growing Facebook fan page http://www.facebook/gamegavel. We are slowly developing that critical mass needed to compete with eBay but still have a long way to go. Thanks again to all of you and I hope many of you will take advantage of this offer.

    Our goal is to have everyone’s accounts upgraded by this Wednesday, November 16. A notification will be emailed to all existing members letting you know that it is completed and you can list and sell for free from here on out.

    How is the site doing now? I need an alternative to Ebay as they royally pissed me off for good this time and I need an alternative. I registered but it still seems quiet on gamegavel. I'm going to try listing some items soon but want some feedback on it now. Also, can you sell video gaming memorabilia or does it strictly have to be games and systems?

    Thanks guys
