Ebay Makes a Change For the Worse

Wow is all I can say. Why would ebay do something like this? Hopefully this is a bug and will be fixed. If you go to ebay and click on the category "Sports Mem, Cards & Fan Shop", then the "Cards" category, then "Baseball", you get the following sub-categories:



"New" and "Used". No more "Sets", "Lots", "Singles", "Graded", "1960-1969", etc. I checked my current active auctions and they have all been switched to the generic "Baseball" category. How does this possibly make things easier for buyers or sellers? Come on ebay!

This plus their insistence on changing something major on all of your listings each year, so you have to go through each one individually and manually change it (this year was shipping time and no more insurance) and doing away with no more store items for under a dollar has this eBay seller hopping mad.

It doesn't surprise me... I can't remember the last positive change they made.

This has totally ruined buying baseball cards on eBay for me. Hopefully this is something they are just trying out and will revert back to the original when they see how crappy this layout is.

Weird, I still see it the old way...did they shift back since the 23rd?

Nope, it's still the new (limited) way for me. I just clicked on sell, then browse categories. I chose Sports Mem, Cards & Fan Shop, then Cards, then Baseball and that was as far as the options would go.
