Default Christie's Photos

What did you guys think of the prices on photos? Any good deal to be had? Some of the panoramas were very cool.

Steve,

I picked up a handful of keepers. I posted this over on card side but what the heck. I always regretted letting this one go and relieved to have it back. Only two more like this on my list. Thank goodness they didn't promote it being a card image.
I paid way below what I was willing so happy(rarely happens anymore).
RE: large format photos
With a zero guarantee on age, it killed many of them. Horners on mounts... easy. A mounted and trimmed 1917 white Sox photo.. yikes...

and speaking of mounted photos.

Noticed the 1917 Murnane All Star Game went for A LOT less at Christies then an unmounted at RMY:


$6250 (but they don't show shipping and tax, so this could be in the 8K neighborhood)

$11,236.71

Cheap, cheap, cheap! Bargains galore in that auction, or the market has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. Unfortunately, my cash flow also at a low ebb right now!

Would love to hear more from the experts regarding the comments about photos on mounts - is this considered a no-no for photos?

Can I assume it's better for a photo to be standalone and just on the photo paper, and not on a cardboard mount?

Thanks for edumacating me on the topic!

Only a handful of photos were PSA certified Type 1s. While people may bitch a lot about card grading, I believe Henry Yee does all the PSA photo work. If I am wrong someone will correct me. Which leads me to assume that the PSA/Yee stamp of approval is worth Real money in many sales. Which leads me to wonder why someone would hold these photos for many years and when he goes to sell them not submit to Yee at $50 a pop for the thumbs up.
I know people will respond with stuff like "just enjoy the photo.... why is it all about grading all the time ....." and I get that. But if the difference between a PSA and no PSA cert is literally thousands of dollars, what kind of sane person would leave that on the table.
Some of you guys may think you are smart enough to deal with these photos from a scan and form a strong opinion of Type 1 vs 2. I'm not. Saying it's an "original" photo doesn't tell the buyer a whole lot.

Agreed Steve, there was a lot of risk in this auction and I think a lot of the prices reflected that. I was the under-bidder on the 1909 Philadelphia team photo with Jackson for example. Would have loved to have it and would have gone much higher with a PSA letter. Being framed and unable to see the back I just couldn't put any more money at risk.
