COMBINED MAIL & CONVENTION AUCTION #3

NOTE – ALL MAIL AUCTION LOTS ALSO REPRODUCED IN COLOR IN CLEAR THE DECKS

In response to prior years’ successful mail auctions, we are again doing a mail auction that will be combined with our convention auction on October 13, 2018. The mail auction consists of 4 pages with seven lots per page. Each page is listed separately on the Auction Home Page and can be viewed through your browser as a pdf file. We have also included a pdf file that includes all 4 pages. In addition, each page can be downloaded using Adobe Acrobat or Reader, so that you can study the lots in full color at your convenience. We have been fortunate to get a nice selection of decks - there is something for everyone. We are hopeful that there will be active bidding by many of our members, including our new members from CPCC.

Read the following rules carefully. We suggest you use email to send us your bids. You will receive a personal acknowledgement of each list of bids received. If you do not receive a personal response it is because for whatever reason, we did not receive your bids – in which case contact us by email or phone. If you mail your bids in and want to be sure they arrived, please call a few days before the deadline. Finally, we will accept telephone bids so if you like to put your bidding off until the very end, just call!

BIDDING – When you bid by mail or email, please list your name, address and email address (if applicable), and for each item you are bidding on, the lot number, lot name and your maximum bid, and send to;

Steve Bowling
12205 Menalto Drive
Los Altos Hills, CA
USA 94022-4234

email: srbbowling@gmail.com or Tel. 650-814-9653

or Judy Dawson: tigers101@sympatico.ca

All email bids will be personally acknowledged. In order to avoid any conflict of interest, Steve, Judy, Paul Bostock and the Convention Auctioneer (Larry Herold) will have bid before any other bids are received. If a mail auction lot did not receive a bid prior to the convention, Steve, Judy, Paul and Auctioneer will be permitted to bid on the mail auction lot at the convention.

Convention Auctioneer will have the highest mail bid and will insert it into the live bidding as he deems appropriate. In some cases the winner will be at the convention, in others the winner will be from a mail bid. All winning mail bids more than 10% in excess of the next highest bid, or minimum bid if there are no other bids, will be reduced to 10% above the next highest bid, or the minimum bid, as applicable. In no case will bidders be notified the number or amounts of competing bids. There will be no price reduction or further offering of auction items after the closing if the minimum bid is not achieved.

PAYMENT & SHIPPING - All bidders will be notified by mail or email of their winning bids and amount due. Invoices will be due upon receipt. All lots are to be paid in U.S. currency. Foreign payments can be made by check only if it is in U.S. dollars and if the check specifically states it is cleared through a named U.S. bank. International Money Orders in U.S. dollars will also be acceptable. Both foreign and domestic bidders will be able to use PayPal by directing the payment to payments@52plusjoker.org, adding 4% to the total invoice to cover PayPal charges. If payments are not received within 30 days from the Auction's closing date, those lots will be returned to the consignor. If items received are not as specified in the Auction listing, you should contact Steve Bowling within a week of receipt to arrange for a refund or price adjustment. U.S. shipments will be made by UPS and the Post Office. All items over $50 in value will be insured within the US. Foreign shipments will, in most cases, be sent by First Class Airmail. The Club will invoice you at approximate cost for the shipping charges plus a $3 handling charge for each package. Please note that international postage rates have increased to approximately $15/$25 for 1 or 2 decks respectively.

We have endeavored to describe all lots carefully so that members can be comfortable when placing their bids that they will receive items in at least as good condition as described. As mentioned earlier, any lots that are not as described can be returned for refund. Remember all lots are pictured in color on the auction webpage. For each deck listed we have indicated the lot number, its date of manufacture, maker, country of origin, number of cards, condition, condition of the box (if applicable, with OB1 being mint or near mint, OB2 being average with some use or wear and OB3 indicating considerable wear and quite possibly some damage), minimum bid, reference if found and a short description. Most references are to specific listings in the Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards (Hochman).
