As the holidays rapidly approach and the buying seasons intensify, more than a few people buying for collectors will turn to all the available venues to land a gift that they might not be able to find anywhere else.
That just might include buying off the auction block — whether its eBay or some other online option or a high-end buy from an auction house, there can be unusual and story-worthy things found.
And that’s where you come in. As part of the Beckett Sports Card Monthly Auction Issue this year, we’re curious to hear about your epic finds or your unbelievable steals via the auction circuit where you outbid everyone else for something you absolutely had to have.
Do you have any auction steals or stories you can share with collectors? Do you have any treasures you found almost by accident? (It could be eBay, auction house, league auction,whatever … any sport or non-sports.)
Tell us about them in a comment below along with your name and location and we’ll share some of the best ones in the upcoming issue.
