Default Honus has not moved in awhile...

Any thoughts on REA's Honus Wagner, sitting at a cool $950,000? Anyone think it will stop here? Go up some more? After all, its just money...

we all know that the action in most auctions is at the end.

Wags still has legs...and will sell for more like 1.5mil in my opinion.

This is the last bid at the $50K range... once it hits $1M the bid increment goes up to $100K.

Default Honus Bonus

Honus has not moved in awhile...

Perhaps it does so when no one is looking...I know I have trained my Honus to remain perfectly calm while out in public.

Absolutely right on! Bids come out early, get fairly large, but can increase substantially near the end of the auction.

Best to all,

Default Cards

Tom, that is HILARIOUS! I just look at that Honus, and sure it is cool and all, but let's see... could buy one heck of a house for that and have plenty left over for a nice car and tons of cards and still take some nice vacations... That's a lot of bank for a card, even if it is Honus.
Give me a Cracker Jack 1914 or 1915 Ty Cobb and Shoeless Joe and I'd be much happier anyway.
But it is fun to live vicariously through the bidders...

In the last few days, Babe did have a $10,000 movement.

I agree. Poor Babe and Shoeless Joe and Ty Cobb for that matter, all amazing cards, but overshadowed by Mr Honus. If only I had several hundred thousand just sitting around, oh wait, I would still want a CJ Shoeless

I know that Ruth cards have been escalating sharply the past couple years, but the Frederick Foto card currently at auction in REA sure was a great buy for someone back in 2011. The same card sold for $11,163 at REA four years ago. This time around, the minimum bid was $25,000 and the card is currently at $27,500.

Still no movement on most of the big ticket items.

Wish I could say the same for the lot that I am bidding on. It seems to go up every time I refresh the page.

I think the Wags will move...significantly...just a matter of time. The Ruth is pretty high...the Cobb/Cobb should sell for 120 or so I'd think.

Wish I was better at speculation, as does everyone else. Kind of like Mack to the Future when Biff grabs the sports almanac from the future and dominates the wagering...

REA is startin' to heat up a bit...under the recent bids page, a Satchel Paige contract shot from $5,500 to $17,000 within a 23 second span.

Desiderata

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Strive to be happy.
