The way to know if you're required to report the income you made from selling items on eBay is to go to IRS.gov and call up Publication 17 and go through that and match the rules to the facts in your particular situation. Also look at the instructions to IRS Form 1040. Work you way slowly and carefully through the forms and instructions; that's how you can figure it out yourself.
