Auction Lots Preview

How you can see and bid on the auction lots in the current auction:

One can just preview the 1200 lots (below) until the auctions start at midnight Oct. 14. Once the auction begins, a person can start a watchlist as they preview.

Click a lot image to enlarge. After enlarging the lot image, you can see details of the image by running your cursor over the image. Or you can click the magnifier in the upper right corner of the larger lot image to enlarge, then click one more time to enlarge further. To remove the enlargement click on the black background.

If you are using a tablet or cellphone, instead of clicking to enlarge, you can use your thumb and forefinger moving apart from each other to enlarge. To reduce the enlargement use your thumb and forefinger moving toward each other.

For lots with multiple images: after you enlarge a lot image, click the smaller lot image/s below the larger lot image to see those additional images. 

Click BID now to enter your bid for a lot, and type your bid in the bid box, then click Place Bid after you see the details and information for that lot. Please bid only in $5.00 increments (multiples of $5.00 and $10.00).

If after placing a bid, you receive a red banner with the notice that your bid equals another bidder’s bid amount, you have the option of changing your bid. If you change your bid, it is important to refresh the page before placing that bid. If you do not refresh the page, the red banner will continue to show, and it does not mean that you need to keep raising your bid.   

After the auction starts you will be able to see all of the lots you bid on and whether you are winning or losing each bid on the Auction Lots page; you will be able to see a green “winning” or a red “losing” banner on the lot image or by using the Auctions link on your My Account page .

If you are outbid you will receive an email saying that you were outbid and a link to increase your bid. We suggest you make the first bid on a lot your highest reasonable price in order to avoid multiple outbid email notices, or disappointment at the end.

You can search for button categories using the “Search Products” box in the upper right of this page. Type in the category or lot number then click “return”. (i.e. celluloid, book etc…)

The ending of auction lots will be staggered, ie: (the first 200 lots will end their auctions at 5 PM EST Oct. 31st; lots 201-400 will end their auctions at 7 PM EST Oct. 31st; lots 401-600 will end their auctions at 9 PM EST Oct. 31st.; lots 601-800 will end their auctions at 5 PM EST Nov. 1st; lots 801-1000 will end their auctions at 7 PM EST Nov. 1st; lots 1001-1200 will end their auctions at 9 PM EST Nov. 1st.) This staggering of finish times allows for some breathing time, and perhaps, refiguring the bids you want to make for later lots, based on wins and losses in the earlier lot group(s).

A day or two after the end of the auction we will send you an invoice with the total of the bids you won plus the buyer’s premium and shipping total. There will be a 13.5% buyer’s premium added to your total (with a 3.5% discount for payment using a US money order or a US check).
