Default Sterling Sports Auctions Experience

I hope this does not come off like a paid endorsement but I have consigned cards with several different auction houses over the many years I have been in the hobby. This post is not intended to be show dissatisfaction with those unnamed houses but to give credit to one who has really stood out to me as being exceptional and that is Sterling.

Not sure how many of you have consigned with Lee but he is one of the most honest and genuine guys in the hobby. Consistently he has been able to get me solid numbers for my consignments, he pays quickly and he is so easy to work with. Consignments don't have to be there months in advance, the write ups are simple and straightforward and the images speak for themselves. And you can't beat the frequency of an auction a month. In each of his last 6 or 7 auctions the results were better than I had expected overall.

Anyone who knows me will tell you that I agonize over the process of making a consignment. Lee has made that choice for me much easier by consistently delivering solid results. A huge thanks to Lee and all of his devoted bidders.

Greg

Lee/Sterling has always been one of the best (if not the best) from a buyer's perspective--accepts paypal, reasonable shipping, sends cards immediately. If he can make consigners happy too he must be doing something right.

Obviously Sterling advertises here so I am biased but I have consigned and bought from Sterling/Lee on many occasions and have always had great service . Never a complaint. A few of the bigger auction houses could take lessons on customer service from Sterling.

Lee at Sterling Auctions had to fill big shoes once Bryan Dwyer went over to REA & has done a great job. What I like most about Lee is his communication with customers. He returns phone calls immediately & has a great personality with his customers, if your bidding or consigning.

Ditto
Add that Lee is the quickest shipper ever. I paid for my win via PayPal the day after the close and got an emailed delivery tracking # within a few hours.
