BUYER’S SIGNATURE________________________________________ DATE______________________

Pre-Auction Estimates

The price estimates given have been drawn from previous auctions, collector sales and current going rates at the time of publication. However, it should be noted that these are purely estimates of the range of prices that items could bring. This shall give bidders an idea of what the bidding range is expected to be. There is no guarantee that prices will fall within this range. In some cases, individual items may vary in price, due to the exceptional quality or rarity of the item.


Many items will have no reserve. Reserve prices will only be revealed by the auctioneer during the live auction if the bid has not reached the reserve, to allow for the opportunity to let bidders know how much more they need to bid to get the item “sold”.

Preview Auction

All sales are final upon the end time of each lot - “sold” to the highest bidder. The highest Bidder shall be the Purchaser and no Purchaser shall retract his bid once “sold”. All sales are final. However, a registered buyer’s bid (an offer) is not a sale when it is less than a minimum reserve on the item. It is the responsibility of the Purchaser once their item is “sold” to insure their purchases immediately or make arrangements for shipping consistent with the terms above.

** Any and all charges from Delta Cargo or trucking is the sole responsibility of the board owner.

Items A - E are prep charges, if being shipped.
