5 Auctions starting at 95% off

We are continuing to experiment with the best way to run auctions. We just posted 5 new auctions from DKSchultz. They all have extremely low minimum bids, and they are broken out by sport so that you can bid on just the sports you are interested in.

Also, this is the last day to bid on $7,000+ BV, Primarily Football Cards from GridironHerosAndGreats. The minimum bid is more than 90% off.

Top Sellers & Flipping Cards
In the next week we plan to push an update to the site that will change the Top Sellers list so that it incorporates cards that you purchase from the site instead of only reflecting the cards that you have sent us on consignment. If you want to move your way up the Top Sellers list, winning an auction will be a great way to make a quick jump up the list.

1st Auction HR, 2nd Auction up to Bat

A week ago, Brad Negen had less than $10,000 of total book value in his inventory. After being the winning bidder in COMC’s inaugural silent auction, Negen now has just over $20,000.

1999 Finest Team Finest Gold #T2 - Brett Favre/250 - Courtesy of CheckOutMyCards.comWith his $1,530 offer, Negen outbid 25 others to claim the collection of sidelinecardz. Several bidders were close on his tail. The book value was $10,927.35. You can find the cards for sale in his Jag account.

“I thought it was a nice varied lot that would allow me to pick up some baseball and hockey cards, which I don’t have much of in my inventory,” said Negen via email Thursday. ” I thought there were some pretty nice football cards in there as well, and many of them didn’t have multiples on the site already — which is a big positive.”

With no listing fees of any kind, Negen instantly gets to price his 1,662 new cards accordingly.

“I’m  hoping I can see a positive return from the lot by being patient with sales,” said Negen, a COMC seller since early 2009.  “With what I’ve seen in sales from my first year here, I think I can make that happen.”

2009 Upper Deck Draft Edition Blue 50 #279 - Michael Oher AA/50 - Courtesy of CheckOutMyCards.comThe next silent auction just went live this afternoon, and here are some stats from the lot:

Total Book Value: $7,005.90
Original Asking Price: $1,522.74
Current Owner: GridironHerosandGreats
# of items: 1,695
Items with no Book Value: 4
Average Book Value: $4.14

Go place your bid.

Here is Negen’s endorsement for COMC, and the auction system itself.

“I’m a big fan of COMC and the direction the site is moving in,” he said. “One of the best parts about the auction, and the site in general, is that you don’t have to worry about the safety of a transaction.  The contents of any transaction are clearly listed with great scans and money is transferred from one party to another without concern.”
