Default 4SC eBay Auctions

It looks like 4SC has started doing actual auctions starting at $.99. My guess is that they are trying to move inventory that they have had for a while.

Might be things to pick up. I assume they start auctions higher or do BIN's regularly instead of low starting price auctions? I don't follow them.

I don't remember ever seeing them do auctions. It has always been BINs.

Maybe they are experimenting with consignments?

Sometime in the past few months 4sc's raw division, NESC, started offering their items primarily through auctions. In most cases, the sets/lots they offer now typically sell for more via auction than they did when they were fixed price listings. What is interesting with the NESC auctions is that the auctions end between noon and 6 pm M-F...some of the prices realized have been strong(as compared to their previous BIN prices). Most would argue that auctions seem to achieve better results ending in the evenings versus before 7 PM.

Perhaps the NESC auction results have prompted 4sc to take the same approach.

IMO, across ebay over the past year, auction results on vintage sets/lots have been much stronger than they have been in the past decade. I now find myself searching the newly listed BINs for bargains versus the ending soon auctions as the bargains have moved from the auctions to the BINs.

I have really been following the sale prices of about 7 players for the past 3 moths. prices are going up at a rapid pace. 3 prewar and 4 postwar. Some are getting as high as any auction house. Crazy.

It seems to me that a lot of sellers are going back to auctions recently. I noticed it on the memorabilia side. For a while auctions were nearly extinct and I'd get excited to find one because in my genre auction sales almost always ended lower than what typically would've been offered via "buy it now". Now auctions are all the rage again. Not sure what caused the shift.

I find it annoying as hell to have to wait 7 days...or gasp...even worse....10. It's 2018. I want everything now.
