Mine came with a damaged box, too, although not as bad as yours. It's a beast of a catalogue, looking forward to flipping through with my boys!

As my auctions are typically of the eBay variety, do people tend to wait until the last day/last hour to submit bids in these as well? Not sure if all my excitement will be for naught like the final ten seconds on eBay. Some things are still reasonable. For now (even with the premium).

Don't put much stock in items that look like a bargain right now. Most people rush to get their bids in on the first day or two, so they are eligible to participate in extended bidding. But it is not unusual for prices to double, triple, etc. during extended bidding.

My catalog arrived today...again, the Catalog itself is a work of art (and box was fully intact), but nothing showing from my short, very specific 'Shopping List'- and I don't have the wallet to treat their auction like an impulse counter.

Good Luck to Everyone else!

Just opened my catalog. Actually i dropped it on the floor upstairs and it went 'boom' like a sack of concrete. Good thing it didnt land on my foot.

My catalog delivery came with a big hole on the side of the box as well. This might be a common thing with USPS and heavier items.

On a side note the REA items are great. But I am noticing a drop in card offerings. Could there be a shift in market consignment trends? Or are people just not selling as much these days?
I'm comparing notes to when I was really in the market looking for tickets and cards 2013-2014, seems there were more abundance of these several years ago.

My delivery box also had a hole. The box is much larger than the catalog, and the catalog was turned so that the side opposite the spine was resting against one side of the panel flaps, and between the spine and the other end of the box was a gap of multiple inches that had a scrunched up section of paper. The long side panel in the area with the scrunched up paper was where my gaping hole was, so no harm no foul.

Still, lopsided packaging like this can cause shipping issues. As a note, REA does pack their auction items with extra care.

Wish they didn't send me a catalog at all. I'm cool with the website.

Under the Green New Deal there will be no more auction catalogs.

Steve - did you receive a catalog for this auction? Back in September you asked to stop receiving the catalog, so we removed your name. I just checked the mailing list for this auction and your name wasn't on it. If you received a catalog, please let me know because that means someone other than me is sending our printer a mailing list.

Anyone who wishes to stop receiving a catalog, just drop us an e-mail or send me a PM. Happy to oblige. Also, anyone who receives a damaged or missing catalog, let us know and we'll happily replace it. There's usually a few every auction, usually less than one tenth of one percent of what we send out but it happens. I try and reach out to anyone who says theirs was missing, but I have to get a response to figure out where to send the replacement (and I don't always get a response!).

Thank you to all for the bids so far and thanks to all the consignors who made this auction possible. Looking forward to a fun final ten days.

Brian
