HI all:
The board needs a little pick me up. Love of The Game's Winter auction ends tonight. There are tons of great lots to bid on. The auction is bound to go very late ( or early depending on how you look at it) and spawn yet another " Auction closing times" thread. I for one LOVE the all nighters!
Here's the contest. Member who post his guess of the auction closing time- closest to the actual time....wins. One guess per member and no guesses past 11pm EST. Winner gets both the cards pictured below mailed to them free. Ill PM the winner and post his username. Good luck!! Post EASTERN TIME guesses. Ties go to earliest guess. Al.... You can't play:)

what was the official ending time?

Stonepony
01-31-2016, 09:34 AM
Official closing time, per Al, was a numbing 5:29 am EST
Mrvstr wins by missing the mark by 2 minutes .
Almostdone also missed by 2 min, but mrvstr closest bid came in first.
That was fun, maybe do again this spring/ summer

Snapolit1

Thanks for the contest! After the week of bad news, that's the perfect person to win this contest. Probably the most positive guy on the board, congrats Johnny!! :D

Is there a way of knowing with out Al telling us? Based off the final notice email it was between 5 and 5:30.

Thanks Dave. Much appreciated as a diversion from the bad decisions many collectors made in the other thread.

Now about that 530am time to close. How many of us over 50 yrs old stayed up? I love Al and the auctions but please close them earlier. Tell people it's going to close at 3am on that night....close it at 315 and be done with it....just a suggestion..... The older I get the less I like all night auctions.....but I do understand. I fell out at around 1am or so CST......

Snapolit1
01-31-2016, 09:58 AM
I placed my bets and went to sleep at midnight. No way I am sitting up hitting the refresh button all night. And a little surprised there weren't more emails about imminent closing, etc.
Having said that, I am very happy with the pieces I got, and it feels nice having dealt with what everyone says is one of the good guys. The slime surrounding this industry as a whole is starting to get to me.

I kept setting my phone alarm. Admittedly it was painful .
At 315 CST I finally just put in a max bid ( which held up well below it) and called it s night. While NOT a lot my lot closing guy...ill admit I like my sleep:)

Any thoughts on whether LOTG and Goldin ending same night had any effect on hammer prices?
What time did Goldin close? I didn't follow them

Joe_G.
01-31-2016, 10:15 AM
It was tough for me to stay up until closing, I placed max bid at 4:17am (Eastern) at several increments above my leading bid and lost it at 5:08am. I just wasn't meant to have that Twitchell GQ (wasn't first time - I was high underbidder in Feb. 2003 on eBay). Maybe next time.

What time did Goldin close? I didn't follow them
Their sgc50/4 Mantle #311 sold for 54,900
They had some nice t206 Cobbs i was looking at.
Despite some 'altered' pieces, they still got good money.
Big ticket items i saw was the Cobb Tin for 10,370
and the large lot of t206s (333) get 24,400
and the Clemente RC psa8 getting 58,560 WOW!!!!:eek:

Jason
01-31-2016, 10:53 AM

Nevermind I see it now 5:29am

Cool contest and congrats to Johnny! I was in the poker room until about 6am and had time to follow all of this. After 5 hours of no bids on my lots, someone tried to throw a bid in at 4am-ish. Luckily I was still wide awake. I managed to win half a Joe Tinker autograph for $200 and the Art Fletcher sweater endorsement for $150. Great great great auction!
