Thanks for the positive vibes on the upcoming auction endeavor! I’ve got 116 lots loaded into the system already with many more coming. Have had a ton of contacts from people with interest in consigning and there’s a lot of room left.
So far, the auction is weighted heavily towards 19th century tobacco…..card sets, lots, albums, cabinets and other items. I’d love to have more pre- and post-war gum and candy cards, 20th century tobacco and other items.
Will have some more notes soon about other items in the auction! Check back here often!
I am starting a Vintage Nonsports Only auction to target a late January / early February 2019 timeframe for the first auction. The auction will be on the simpleauctionsite platform that many other auction houses currently use. I’m hoping to have somewhere in the 500-600 lots in the first auction. To my knowledge, this will be the only Vintage Nonsports Only auction site out there.
In the next 2-4 weeks, the site will be live for registering. In the meantime, you can contact me if you have anything you’d like to include in the auction. Items that are always popular include:
- Complete “N”, “T”, “E” and “R” sets
- Unopened packs
- PSA/SGC graded single cards and sets
- Advertising pieces – Cabinets, Posters, etc
- Tough Typecards
