Default Considering Selling Off My Autos

Hey everyone. I've been toying with the idea for a while now, and I am thinking about selling off the large majority of my autos and going to the card side completely. All of the forgeries and my inability to become an expert has left me somewhat disillusioned. Has anyone here ever done this? Can you recommend an auction house that might come to me to get everything as I don't want to even think about shipping all of this stuff or doing this piecemeal. Not sure yet what I want to do, but your thoughts would be appreciated.

I think Heritage has an NYC office, Lelands is on L.I., and REA is in NJ, so you could start there. If there is enough value they will come to you.

Don't forget about the B/S/T section....most trusted individuals here can send payment via Paypal Gift and you get around all of the 18-20% fees you would pay with the big auction houses.

Thre are plenty of high rollers here ready to spend money on good autographs.

Thanks guys. All good suggestions. I think I have a number of nice pieces (feel free to browse in my flickr album), but I don't think I want to piecemeal stuff out if I decide to go this way. I'm certainly not sure I want to sell anything and may just stick with what I have (and probably keep adding if that's the case). I don't believe I've been burned, but I have been thinking about this for some time and appreciate your input.

if you go big auction house route, they'll probably single lots your nicer pieces (signed tobacco, young, greenberg, lajoie...) but group the smaller lots anyways.

were there alot of interest when you made the t205 walsh/t206 marquard available? probably best bet to big auction house them to get most eyes on them, that's why they charge 20%. if you list them on the board expect alot of back n forth and tire-kickers etc.

another suggestion would be consigning them to richard/jim for their client list but that will also require some work hammering out prices for each piece.

Those Christy Walsh releases are great. I picked up a Jim Jeffries and a Victor McLaglen when they were being sold off.

The best idea so far. Give the people here a chance and safe yourself 20 percent. Trust me if Jim and Richard see a good deal they will pounce on it.

Jim I left the door open go for it.

+!, especially if you have just the 50 listed on your site..I'm sure you would sell fast.
