Default Open For Bidding: Love of the Game's Summer Set Builder's Auction

Hi Everyone:

Just a quick note that LOTG's Summertime Set Builder's Auction is live and open for bidding.

This is a fun little auction, with something for everyone - lots of small groups and single cards to fill in holes in your sets, some nice autographed cards and photos, a couple of unique memorabilia items, and even some shiny stuff this time.

Highlights include a nice '33 Goudey #181 Ruth, a T205 Matty, and a cool group of vintage pinback buttons from defunct major league teams.

The auction closes on Saturday, May 30. Get your bids in now at http://loveofthegameauctions.com/catalog.aspx

Just as a reminder, we have a monster catalog auction coming up this July which will be closing just after the National. Stay tuned for more info on that, and good luck with the Set Builder's auction!

-Al

Pretty weak effort, might have been better to just wait and put this material in the bigger July auction. Just my opinion.............

Your auctions are always great fun with some interesting offerings for the set builders and type collectors.
I already have my handful of bids in.
Congrats and all the best,
Barry

There are a variety of schools of thought on this. You imply that it cheapens the brand to have an auction like this. LOTG makes a clear differentiation between premier auctions and set builder's auctions. They even go so far as to have lower buyer's premiums for their set builder's auction. The other school of thought is it gets to include buyers who might not have the bankroll at this time to participate in the premium auctions.

LOTG is not unique in this regard as Mile High has a very similar model and Heritage with one of the best brands around has their weekly internet auctions.

Outside our little world, Mercedes has introduced lower price offerings and I have not seen their brand diminish.

I think this type of auction helps include bidders now that might not otherwise be able to participate as well as allowing LOTG to accept a larger range of items without requiring the consignor to break up their consignment.

I think Al's auction model makes sense because it's not all high or low end material -- so everyone has an interest instead of just some of the market. Plus he's honest which makes him a rarity in the auction business. Probably makes sense to support the honest guys instead of gushing over the criminals who have been stealing from all of us for years -- some of whom still are.
