Use a championship year to price an eBay baseball item around $19 to $20

When was the last year your favorite baseball team won a championship? If you ever sell something on eBay featuring your team, maybe you can make the price to mimic the year of that championship.

Have a Cubs item? Sell it for $20.16, that’s a fun price! Or if you are a Cardinals fan, set the price to $20.11.

As of right now there are exactly 14 Cubs items on eBay with a price of $20.16. Rather eery since 14 is the uniform number of Mr. Cub Ernie Banks.

How often do fans sell items on eBay with a price to match a championship year?

Full list of all World Series winners, and count of eBay auctions that use the championship year as the price

$20.19 Washington Nationals: 1 item
$20.18 Red Sox: 5 items
$20.17 Astros: 25 items
$20.16 Cubs: 14 items
$20.15 Kansas City Royals: 0 items
$20.14 Giants: 10 items
$20.13 Red Sox: 2 items
$20.12 Giants: 1 item
$20.11 Cardinals: 10 items
$20.10 Giants: 4 items

The poor Royals. They have no items. The 2012 Giants and 2010 Giants get mostly forgotten in favor of the 2014 Giants.

$20.09 Yankees: 23 items
$20.08 Phillies: 2 items
$20.07 Red Sox: 2 items
$20.06 Cardinals: 13 items
$20.05 White Sox: 0 items
$20.04 Red Sox: 4 items
$20.03 Marlins: 3 items
$20.02 Angels: 80 items
$20.01 Diamondbacks: 0 items
$20.00 Yankees: 6825 items

Where are the White Sox fans? No $20.05 auctions for White Sox items?! And none for the $20.01 Diamondbacks. Looks like Mark Grace isn’t trying to pawn off any of his stuff with that clever price.

Of course, the $20.00 Yankees have a ton of stuff. $20.00 is a standard, easy common price. Even more common is the $19.99 Yankees.

$19.99 Yankees: 15008 items
$19.98 Yankees: 542 items
$19.97 Marlins: 30 items
$19.96 Yankees: 134 items
$19.95 Braves: 867 items

$19.93 Blue Jays: 4 items
$19.92 Blue Jays: 4 items
$19.91 Minnesota Twins: 13 items
$19.90 Cincinnati Reds: 30 items

For the Reds, I had to put in the city. Doing a simple search on eBay for Reds, comes up with THOUSANDS of results. Same thing with the Athletics, I had to search Oakland Athletics. Otherwise, too many generic athletic clothing items.

$19.89 Oakland Athletics: 8 items

$19.87 Minnesota Twins: 2 items
$19.86 Mets: 22 items

$19.41 Yankees: 2 items
$19.40 Cincinnati Reds: 1 item

Indians fans are representing here. Their last championship came in 1948. 77 items for $19.48 is pretty good.

$19.39 Yankees: 21 items
$19.38 Yankees: 4 items
$19.37 Yankees: 6 items
$19.36 Yankees: 7 items
$19.35 Detroit Tigers: 2 items
$19.34 Cardinals: 16 items
$19.33 Giants: 38 items
$19.32 Yankees: 19 items
$19.31 Cardinals: 11 items

$19.30 Oakland Athletics: 0 items
$19.29 Oakland Athletics: 2 items
$19.28 Yankees: 8 items

$19.13 Oakland Athletics: 1 item
$19.12 Red Sox: 3 items
$19.11 Oakland Athletics: 0 items
$19.10 Oakland Athletics: 1 item

I’m glad someone is remembering the 1917 White Sox. There is one book being sold for $19.17: “White Sox Park’s Amazing Vendors”. I’ve been to games to the old Comiskey in the early 90s. Their vendors were fun.

$19.09 Pirates: 27 items
$19.08 Cubs: 3 items
$19.07 Cubs: 2 items
$19.06 White Sox: 1 item
$19.05 Giants: 2 items

I’m a little surprised there are only three items for the $19.08 Cubs. But I guess if you are selling something, you might as well get the extra buck by pricing it at $20.16. Any Cubs fan these days doesn’t need to hear 1908 anymore. We’ve had 1908 repeated over and over for way too long.
