Default Auction question

Recommendations for which AH's seem to provide the best prices for the sellers. Any help is appreciated.

Depends on what you are selling. Raw low grade T206s? Sets? Postcards? 1950s high grade?

the autographs will need to be authenticated to receive any significant prices. Sterling sounds good for what you have...they have frequent auctions...and pay very quickly. Lee is great.

This site probably has as many t206 collectors as any. I'd try to sell them here first, save yourself the 20% bp.

Most of the consignment fees are negotiable, if you have a lot that's desirable. I've listed in a few auctions at different houses with lots that are $10k+, and I can always get the auction house to give me either a zero or a negative consignment rate (IE, they will pay me over hammer price). I would advise you to call a few up and let them earn your business.

I agree with this. My ears perked up with “graded t206”. Why don’t you try selling on BST and keep for yourself some of the AH’s buyer’s premium. There are plenty of peeps pls here who would likely be interested in your cards.

getting a negative consignment rate can be overrated. which would you rather have? 100 percent of a $10,000 high bid or 105 percent of an $8,500 high bid?

the term "auction houses" always covers a wide brush in these type of threads. those with larger mailing lists who do more than just buy an ad to promote their auction, don't gouge on shipping and have excellent customer service are typically going to realize higher prices than those that don't. some auction houses realize why they are in business. others don't. i would be ok with not getting a negative rate from those who do their job well.
