Default Sirius Sports Auctions

Edited title to thread - Oct 2020

Considering using one of them - or someone else - for PSA graded cards. I think both of these are tied to the PSA registry but could be mistaken. I have used Sterling many times with success, but most of my consignments were prewar examples. Lee does a good job with those.

Sirius seems to be impossible to reach - email or phone - so I am not sure if that is a good sign.

Anyone use these guys?

Never consigned with them, but have won many of their auctions over the years. Their shipping is remarkably fast, as in two days from payment to the left coast, from their AH on the east coast. Their consignment rates also look pretty inviting. Their BP juice - 12.5% - is super buyer friendly, while other AH are up to 22%. Those I pass on.

Same here, never consigned with either but have bought from both with no problems. I have never needed to contact Sirius but I did have a couple of questions for small traditions and was able to reach someone very quickly.

If you're selling anything Jeter or Arod related I would definitely use small traditions.

Interesting note on Jeter cards - thanks

What era cards are you planning to auction? For vintage I would go with Sirius. Their consignment fee for cards over $100 is 0%. With the 12.5% buyers fee, buyers can bid higher so the seller will make more.

I've consigned several times with Small Traditions, not others. I am not attentive to the various fees on either side, so can't comment there, if that is valuable to someone else. But I can say that I can't imagine anywhere being more communicative than ST.

I'll never do business with Dave Thorn (Small Traditions) be it buying or selling. That's just me though and based on what I consider to be honest dealings.

I don't have any experience with Sirius so can't help you there, sorry.

Default Sirius Sports Auctions or Small Traditions



What are two auctioneers I've never bothered with?

Bit the bullet and sent my first consignment with form sent in the package for my winnings.

No email confirmation but wasn't expecting one based on what others have told me.

I guess I'll see the items on my account page when they are being auctioned? Is there an email stating the auction has started?

Thx

Which one did you use? Thinking not ST, since it looks like may not be active anymore.

Never consigned with them so don't know if they provide specific info to consignors about what auction your stuff lands in, but they certainly send out generic emails to their mailing list when auctions start and typically another reminder the day before they close. I notice getting those regularly.

Default Sirius

I have consigned 1000's of cards with Sirius (and won 1000's over the years from their bi-weekly auctions). The principle's name is Michael. Yes, they (he) is not the best communicator in the world. That notwithstanding, they are seemingly honest, pretty reliable, and reasonably expedient on everything they do. Their fees are very fair as someone stated. I find it as a great site for updating several of my mainstream 50's, 60's, 70's Topps baseball sets. Both buying and selling. When I submit I do not utilize their online form, rather I attach my own submission excel spreadsheet, email Michael with it and ship the cards USPS Priority signature required. I have recommended them to several collectors. They do a good job, that said, communication is not their strong point.

agreed ... figured to bring this up

My second consignment is in progress and a third is on the way. I still wish I would receive emails other than outbid notices however.

Starting each lot at a buck is very effective. I've used some others that start either too high or bunch some random cards as a lot, which really prevents any bidding activity.

For anyone out there thinking of using Sirius, just fill out the form and send. It will get to auction.
