If anyone here won the contract lot, 149, I'm interested in a few of the lesser ones.

Hope Christies stays out of the baseball business going forward. This was Storage Wars not a proper auction. Probably some amazing items lurking in the dark corners but I found the presentation completely exasperating.

Having spent an hour there on Monday looking through the photo lots, what you just said is a vast understatement! I was stunned. Fantastic stuff that was not only not pictured in the lots but not even mentioned in the descriptions.

As per my previous post, I'm very disappointed in how they operate their auctions (saying I didn't get outbid notice due to an IT glitch is just ridiculous).

Anyway...if whoever won Lot 153 (WALTER O’MALLEY LETTER REGARDING BROOKLYN DODGERS RELOCATION), is a member here, I'd love to chat regarding a possible quick (profitable) flip.

As a bidder, I like the Christie's auctions because it appears a lot of the material is going cheaper than it would have if it were in an REA or Heritage auction. Not saying the other auction houses are not worthy of mention.

I'll have to remember to treat these auctions like an ebay auction without a snipe program. One thing I do like is that they close the lots at a specific time and will only add 3 minutes each time the bid is topped.

If anyone won the 19th C lot of letters (lot 132), then please let me know if you are going to sell part of it.

Well, at 11:15am I get an email from them that the lot closed and I lost it to a higher bid...but I never got an outbid notification! I would’ve certainly gone higher. So I called and spoke to someone who sounded less than knowledgeable about their auction process, so they put me on hold...They came back after a few mins to say that it was an IT glitch and they were sorry. They said they'll ask to see how this can be resolved...clearly the winning bidder isn't giving the item up, so just a real unfortunate event. And I really wanted the item, too.
i feel for you. about 10 years ago a similar thing happened to a friend of my step-brother on a watch he was bidding on in a fine time pieces and cigar auction held by an auction house in LA. as he got more experience dealing with different auction houses, he became more knowledgeable about which ones he can depend on for things like this. as painful as this is, chalk it up to a learning experience. i hope this has a happy ending for you.

Got outbid on 149 & 172. With the Jewish holiday I was offline for the auction and couldn’t bid higher (would have gone stronger on 172).

If anyone here won the 1937 scorecards id love to deal for a couple.

I'd be interested in a couple of items from lots 131 and 132, if the winner is interested in letting a few go.
