Telephone Bidding   You may also enter bids by calling (914) 388-2940 and having us enter bids online on your behalf until the day before each auction.  When doing so, you can either elect to choose the next bidding increment or a "ceiling bid" that represents the maximum price you are prepared to pay before consideration of the buyer's premium of 15%.

Structure, conditions, and Closings of Auctions

There are two phases of the auction.  During the first phase which ends at 9PM EST, you may enter bids on any lot you would like.  Only those who have bid in the first phase can bid in the second phase.  After 9PM EST bidding will continue until no lots within the entire auction receive even a single bid for a period of 10 minutes.  The auction remains open until 10 minutes have passed without a bid being entered.

There are NO RESERVE prices.  The minimum bid is the least amount that we will accept for a lot.

Bidding increments.   All bids must be at least 10% higher than the highest bid.  If the highest bid is $1,000, for example, the next bid must be at least $1100.  All items will be sold to the highest bidder.  All bids have to meet the minimum prices listed.  AllSportsAuctions.com reserves the right to accept or reject any or all bids and to pull an item from the auction for any reason.   We also reserve the right to postpone or delay the auction for any reason without recourse from any bidder or prospective bidder.

Errors and descriptions.   Also, we reserve the right to remove an item from our auction at any time.  Any error in an AllSportsAuctions.com auction listing or lot description, whether typographical, photographic or technical, well be dealt with at our discretion. 

Bids cannot be retracted   Once placed, a bid cannot be retracted or withdrawn.  Once a bid is entered, an outbid notice will automatically be sent to online bidders.  Entering a bid constitutes acceptance of all terms and conditions of this auction.


Buyers premium and fees.      A 15% buyer's premium is added to the winning bid on all lots.  For example, if you are the high bidder at $1000, you will be invoiced for $1,150.  In addition, your invoice will include insurance, shipping, handling charges, and sales tax if applicable.

ALL SALES FINAL.   All sales are final.  There are NO RETURNS. We strongly encourage all bidders to call before placing bids on any lots to get more detailed descriptions as we cannot guarantee that every item described by us will be accepted or graded the same by yourself or a third party grading service as this is somewhat subjective.  Ask all questions prior to the auction!
