Default Love of the Game Auctions - Open for Bidding

Hi everyone:

In the midst of all the National hoopla, I thought I'd just let you all know that Love of the Game's Summer auction opened this afternoon.

This is easily our biggest sale yet. In addition to the typical menagerie of scarce and unusual cards and unique memorabilia, we've got quite a few truly special items:

• T206 Eddie Plank, SGC 10
• 1914 Cracker Jack near set, #4 on the PSA Registry
• 1914 Cracker Jack Del Pratt, PSA 1.5
• 1915 Cracker Jack Ty Cobb, PSA 2
• 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson, PSA 2
• High-grade 1939 R303-B complete set, #2 on the SGC Registry

For the collector of more modern items, we've got a few dynamite complete sets:

• 1967 Topps baseball, #14 on the PSA Registry
• 1964 Topps football, #1 on the PSA Registry
• 1962 Fleer football, #8 on the PSA Registry

If you're so inclined, please visit www.loveofthegameauctions.com and check out what we've got to offer. And if you're in Chicago, please stop by Booth #309 and preview some of the cards.

Thanks,
-Al

The Plank is cool for sure but why isn't it Grade Altered or Authentic?

You're the man Al! This is the first time I've ever consigned to an auction house, so bid away, otherwise I'll never do it again

The way I understand SGC's policy -- and don't shoot the messenger -- is that if they determine that eraser marks were done to remove something like pencil marks, the grade will be authentic. But if the erasing wasn't done to remove something that originally wasn't on the card, then the card can receive a number.

I might not have expressed their exact letter of the law, but I think that's the basic philosophy. And just because I tried to explain it, doesn't mean I necessarily agree with the logic.

Since the Plank and SGC currently are in the same building for the next four days, it would be great to get an official explanation right from the horse's mouth.

mouth.
Actually, they will grade pencil erasures numerically. A board member showed a before and after with a grade bump-up. The erasure was preformed in-house at SGC by the customer, who asked beforehand, if it would be ok.

I really like the Fonts you used and the overall feel of your website...very inviting, well done!

That Pratt is awesome....that is THE card that keeps most from completing the 1914 CJ set..the Jackson and Cobb are usually readily available, but the Pratt is a whole different ballgame...

I just want to bump this because this auction is allowing me to experience something for the first time. I've never consigned cards to an auction until this one going on right now. I have three lots and I'm bidding on a bunch of things too, so now I'm constantly checking to see if my lots get any bids, so I can bid more on other things. Yesterday my stuff got 4-5 bids, so that moved me into a new bracket of stuff I can consider. It's fun when the stakes aren't too high and the stuff you're selling is doing fairly good

Yeah Ted, I think you might get a buck or two from me...my entire week was planned around Saturday night. I would prefer to stop getting emails from Al to let me know I have been outbid, so please stop bidding.

I'm hoping it's fun, but I guess the worst case is that I get outbid on everything and get all the money from my consignments. In that case, I'm only 3-4 bids total away from getting the minimum I hoped for from them. If they do better though, then I'll bid more on some things than I normally would have bid.

Barry,
I contacted Al about a minor point in one of the descriptions and he fixed it with a two-paragraph addendum. There is no way anyone can claim they didn't know what they were bidding on!

I'm a writer for Huggins & Scott and I always appreciate those who can express their ideas well. I think Al does a tremendous job of melding technical writing with interesting prose.

Agreed, he doesn't seem to have been schooled at the Dime Store Romance Novel school of writing that some of the other houses employ.
