Between Mastro, SCP, Grey Flannel, Lelands, Mile High, etc....I don't feel like I have enough time (nevermind the money) to deal with all these auctions. There's like 10,000 lots for sale right now plus Ebay.

that the sellers are rushing to squeeze through the exits. This happens at the end of any asset price runup. I'm not saying this is the case with respect to vintage cards, but I've seen this phenomenon in other asset markets over the years.

Sincerely,

Bob S

If anything seems like fewer than normal yr-end auctions. Maybe its because Bill Goodwin and Memory Lane had theirs; I don't participate in Lelands or Grey Flannel and Superior seems to be deteriorating sharply in terms of stuff I can buy(although if you are an Old Judge collector its heaven)--did Joe Tuttle leave Superior?

Jim,

You said that if you're an Old Judge collector, it's heaven. Do you mean the volume of Old Judge cards that have been offered recently? I'm sure you didn't mean the prices of them... There have been quite a few OJs out in the past couple of years, that's for sure. It's pretty fun to just look at the different lots that become available.

Have a great remainder of your Thanksgiving evening!

Judging from prices I don't think it is folks running from a market peak; I do think that it is folks running towards a hot market with some aggressive promotional pricing by auctioneers. I know at the National I was being offered cut-rate consignor fees by major houses.

As far as which to deal with, I look at all catalogs and auction house sites I can find. You never know what will turn up or where it will surface. Some of my best deals have come from auction houses I'd not have otherwise thought to look at.

Fred,

I was referring to the number of Old Judge lots. Since its an auction, people can bid what they like.

Prices of most high-grade pre-war cards have jumped substantially in the past 6-12 months and I'm sure Old Judges are no exception.

Jim

Today I received 4 more auction catalogues, bringing the total up to 11 in the last week. Incredible! Hunts, Mastro, Lelands, American Memorabilia, Clean Sweep, Brisco, Superior, Grey Flannel, etc. Wow! What's a guy to do???

luckily (err, maybe not so luckily) im too poor to even consider betting in those big time auctions...nice to look at the catalogs and watching the bidding go to astronomical prices...but, doesnt effect me because i know i cant even touch 3/4 or sometimes all of the stuff that's up for auction
