So I have really good news. I spoke with a company yesterday afternoon that is able to create and do all that I am after. The good part is they have all the technology and programs but now need to combine it to make one for me. Its exciting because that means I will either have great software or that the big guys know something I don't and I will soon be in the drink



I am hoping to have an idea of what things will look like soon. If anyone has any feedback in what they would like to see I am open to anything helpful.

So far We have a live Video feed screen with sound on my side to communicate with the bidders. It should take up 1/4 of the Screen in the Upper right. The Left half of the Screen will be for chatter and questions. Below the video feed on the right side should be all the bidding info you need including an UP Next Preview. I am hoping by adding a chatter section that bidders can share info or ask questions during the auction. In case there is a questionable card brought to attention with sufficient proof it will be automatically cancelled and returned to consignee. I am hoping by adding all these features to keep as transparent as I can and always uphold the utmost integrity.

Personally, I would love to have an AH that specializes in mid-range material...like VG sets from the 60s and 70s and a nice g-VG Carew rookie, lower grade raw t-cards and the like. Sadly it does not seem like a viable business model. I used to get a few, got fun cards I enjoyed at cheap to reasonable prices...which was the deathnail of the auction.

That would be great but reality is it cost 4% or $500 per auction I run with that software. So as long as the AH makes a little profit then it should work in theory! Also with the low open bid set at $.99 to start should help drive the bids.

I agree !00% with you . Huggins and Scott will take your collection no matter what it is like, how much it is worth , or how large it is and work with you . They , of course like all AHs love rare high -end items , but they won't cherry pick your collection for just the best items . They offer very competitive consignor fees also.

Of course I'm biased

Default auctions

Huggins and Scott will not try to sell your lower cost items individually. They generally bundle them into lots and sell the lots. You will never get top dollar that way.

Andrew's 99 cent starting bid is a great idea. Some of the auction houses have become the equivalent of high priced eBay BIN's. The starting bids are so high that no one makes an opening bid. There was one particular auction a few months ago that had 200 items with no bids and another 200 items items with only one bid.

Todd, I would think that Sterling Auctions pretty much fits the description of what you are looking for. And, Sterling has an auction every month, which always gives me an auction near term to look forward to.

Love For The Game also seems to have a lot of mid-grade collector oriented lots. Though they aren't monthly and don't seem to have a set schedule.
