Is it safe to say that christie’s did not do their due diligence for their consignor?

Wow, is that ever an under-statement! I checked out the catalog but did not have the guts to bid on anything.

In my case, the treasure actually WAS buried. Shot this it Christie’s when I went to pickup. Guy had to dig through the boxes to find my lots so I could condense and carry home:

One box held three box binders, the other held two box binders. Those binders were in a smaller box, surrounded with packing peanuts, inside the boxes you see there. Also, each binder box was wrapped in plastic and secured with tape. Maximum overkill.

Best have a sharp blade handy once they arrive. Lots of hacking and slashing in your future.

Very happy with these two from my Giants lots. 1922 and 1923:





Not to mention this one hiding in the weeds:

I'd be interested to see any Pirates photos from any of the lots, including the team lots.

"Home Run" is an apt moniker for this gem from lot 53.
