Default Hunt Auction Pickups

I didn't win this, ... but --- $6,500+ after BP??? Really?

I know it's upside down, and on the front, but, when I returned home and went to see what it sold for, I had to bat my eyes a few times to make sure I read the number correctly.

http://www.huntauctions.com/phone/im...11&lot_num=437

Anyone pick something up they needed? I tend to despise Hunt Auctions for multiple reasons:

1. Organization
2. Awful scans
3. Poorly described/inaccurate conditions
4. Many times they do not provide back scans -- which is important for people collecting various backs...especially for T206s

Nate

I agree 100%. They could do a better job for their consignors.

When they had the Drum find it took 3 emails and a phone call to get back scans.

They get some really good consignments though.

The brown Lenox Lajoie
The Drums
The Red Suns in 2010
The consignment that had all the packs of cigarettes along with the cards.
The Cracker Jacks being talked about in a current thread and so on.

I am sure they are aware but it appears they are happy the way things are turning out. Not sure if anyone from Hunt reads the forum.

The t206 errors have come into their own over the past year or so. REA and Hunt are proof of that.

I am sure Johnny's collection has more than doubled in value in the past 6 months...

Default I'd rather be brainless

No one with a Brain would spend this much for one crummy card.

Ain't that the truth!

Johnny: time to sell?

I don't understand that end price. It doesn't compute.

I was the underbidder and it was a deal at the final price. It has quite the secret.

I think the price had more to do with the back. Someone got a really great card, congrats!

Default well.....

If I had 10 k to dump, it would've been on that card, card sold for an absolute bargain imho!!! winner is extremely lucky....


ship immediately to sgc....(the one tpg that deserves to slab this card, no offense other graders, they are the ones to deserve to slab, as overprint piedmont front/multi strike piedy back....i'm sure will get similar designation...card is a big card and winner is extremely lucky....I am sorry Chris......my heart sank for you....

these types of scrap are like finding a diamond in sand.....the hunt is half the fun, but the disappointment can be painful at times...


whoed have thunk it??? 100 + year old chase cards....HA HA! I love these cards ...


put that card in Goodwin and i'm sure it would hit 10+ k easy...easy...right now




.......Nate, thanks man!!! my cards are worth more than cash to me right now, but a wagner may persuade me....you have become a true force in dealing T206...(.I love the flag btw)






Brian and the haters....you will see, these are like small pieces of art, true alternative T206,


one man's trash is another man's treasure, one man gathers what another man spills.......

THESE CARDS have only started , and will not stop...so might as well accept and move on....and, send me your email, I will take any off your hands

Jim...

your insight on this set and the market , is truly ahead of our time, and your understanding of these rarities is beyond many collectors scope


Congrats to the winner of the Brain card....may I have on weekends

and all other winners....

Wowsers! I saw that there was a WST on the front... But never would have guessed that was on the back. Honestly how can the AH not mention that in the listing or show back scans. At least the ghost that I picked up in a lot a while back was listed as a 'print anomaly.'
