Top Items I Sell on eBay

Top Items I Sell on eBayWhat’s going on everyone? I’ve been selling items on eBay for a minute now. While there are people that do this full-time, I only sell things part time. I have had months where I’ve made over $200, then other months where I only made $50. Any extra money coming in is good. Today, I want to share with you four of the top items that I sell on eBay.


I will start out with the thing that sells best for me. That would be sneakers. I’ve sold brands such as Nike and New Balance. The type of shoe that specifically sells the best for me is Air Jordan’s. Everybody wants to be a sneakerhead (A sneakerhead is a collector of sneakers) these days. I have sold several pairs of used Jordan’s during the past year. As long as they are real somebody will buy them from you. Sometimes I clean them up; sometimes I don’t. The most that I’ve made on a pair of Jordan’s is $150. You can see a post about them here. I also sold some Kobe Bryant’s for over $100. You can see them here.


Jerseys are another item that sells well for me. I’ve sold NBA, soccer and hockey jerseys. There are a lot of sports fans all over the world. As long as your jersey is in good condition and you have good pictures of it there is an 85% chance that it will sell. One of my earliest jersey sales was a Miami Heat D. Wade one. I purchased it for $3 at a Salvation Army store and sold it for $45. $42 profit is pretty damn good.


Bobbleheads are another item that does well for me. I’ve sold them anywhere from $15 – $40. People will pay more for better players or collector’s edition bobbleheads. The bobbleheads that sell the most for me are those of major league baseball players. I look for them every time I go to the thrift stores.

Coffee Mugs

Coffee Mugs is the last item that typically sells well for me. They are usually very cheap at the thrift stores costing $0.50 – $2.00. I’ve sold them for $10 – $35.  Sports mugs, collectible mugs, and Starbucks mugs sell the most for me. For years, I’ve been looking for Starbucks city mugs. Some of them have been known to sell for hundreds of dollars. I haven’t found any of them yet, but I will keep looking.

*Less than a few hours after writing this post I found 6 Starbucks international city mugs. Check out a couple of pictures below. I currently have them listed on eBay right now. I will let you know how much they sell for.

  1. Wow. You really have your eBay selling strategy down pat. I used to sell items that I owned but didn’t need anymore on eBay. I should consider flipping items because I like shopping at thrift stores.

  2. Love that y0u get creative in these ways to make money. Sounds like it’s working well!

  3. The Starbucks city mugs are way cool. I’d collect those. I bet they are hard to come by. Though never know what you’ll find on eBay. Fun.

  4. I’m STILL trying to get over the fact that my mom and sister passed up a box of bobbleheads for ~$2 a piece. I couldn’t believe it! They would have gone for at least $10 a piece.

    I’m a reseller too. You’re missing some key info here. You didn’t make $42 profit on that item bc you had to pay a percentage and a flat fee to both eBay and PayPal.
    Also the market is flooded w starbucks mugs. I found 4 on Sunday at GW and I was so excited! Then I saw how many were for sale (dozens) and the price they were getting(under$20). Yes some are rare and go for big bucks but not always.

  6. I hate mailing stuff, so I shy away from eBay sales, even though I know there’s good money in it.

    I remember that once I found a new Carter’s baby cap at Goodwill. It was adorable and still had its tags on. It was 99 cents, so I got it and put it on eBay. It sold for more than $10. So weird.

  7. I bet shoes would sell well but I never guessed that coffee mugs would be a good sell. This gives me some ideas! 🙂

  9. Great article!
    I had my own eBay store in high school. I used to buy small accessories and electronics on Aliexpress, then sell them at a slight markup. I’d make a $1 or $2 per order. I went to the post office almost everyday for two years.

    And btw.. great idea finding and selling Starbucks mugs. Starbucks has a huge brand loyalty and I’ve noticed that their vintage stuff is hot right now.
