Re: Heritage Auctions: Ambush Marketing?

I think Peter's analysis is entirely correct. Say nothing, do nothing, and people bid because, as has been said several times in another thread, the stuff trumps everything. It all blows over, money is made, and all is good.

It seems to me that, whatever auction you are bidding on, you need to have some level of confidence in the integrity of the seller. If you don't have that and bid anyway, then IMO, you have no room to bitch when things go south. It isn't hard -- you bid to your comfort level and no more. If you don't have much comfort with the seller, you bid less. If you think you won't get screwed, you bid more if its a card you want.

This "I'll bid ln on a maybe-seller anyway because stuff trumps all else" is great until the winner doesn't get what they thought they were going to get. Then I suspect the tone will change. I suggest that if someone chooses to bid on a "stuff trumps everything" auction offered by a suspect seller, they pretty well deserve whatever they get. That's my two cents.

Exactly right.

Thats why we do not see Doug on anymore either I would guess.

Stuff should not trump everything--stay away from the bad guys. Let consignors see they are getting less for their material and positive changes would occur.

again, not something I like to hear, but it does seem to be happening more

sorry about the card you mention

I even went out of my way to say a few things to support them in this tread.

Chris are you still looking at this post?

Why is this thread absent from the new board?

There is absolutely no reason this isn't over there except that Mike M didn't scrape this thread....and move it. If it worries you so much just start a new one over there.....then you can be all giddy and happy again.
