Consign to Clean Sweep Auctions
Clean Sweep Auctions is proud to report that our auction sales continue to be solid and we are currently seeking consignments of items valued at $500 or more for our upcoming auctions. In this challenging economic environment, our unique auction format is more important than ever to help achieve outstanding results when selling your treasured collection.
Clean Sweep Auctions has been running real auctions since 1996. The owner, Steve Verkman, has been active on the show circuit since 1988. Why is this important? We have over 15,000 customers in our database and have relationships with many clients over decades. In this age of instant auction companies, this is something that is vital.
With our 20 years in the business, we have few peers in our knowledge and expertise on vintage cards, autographs, publications and memorabilia. We have regularly won $1,000 single items for cents on the dollar that were buried into group lots in other major auctions. As a retailer as well as an auctioneer, we know for example what single signed baseball retails for $100 and for $500; this is vital in properly preparing lots for your collection. We are also very careful about researching obscurities and variations in the worlds of cards, autographs and memorabilia. We go out of our way to provide the most honest, properly detailed descriptions in the industry.
This is a term that gets thrown around by everyone but when something is sold in a Clean Sweep Auction, bidders know they are bidding on something real. Bidders do not hesitate to leave maximum bids in our auction as they know there is not a chance that they will be run up. Clean Sweep is the only major auction houses that not only restricts consignor bidding but actively polices it. Finally, when it comes to getting paid, we are always on time and offer tremendous cash advances for appropriate consignments.
WEB SITE AND MOBILE VERSION
Our battle-tested web site is the best in the industry. We allow bidders to bid on 50 lots at a time and we were the first auction site to offer PDF full-color downloads of the auction catalog. We have been taking internet bids for 10 years. Perhaps most importantly, we have the largest and finest quality images on the web and continue to be the industry leader in this respect. In this day and age, the web site is often more important than the printed catalog to many bidders. WE ARE THE ONLY AUCTION HOUSE WITH A CUSTOM MOBILE VERSION.
We charge a 10% commission on all items that sell for $500 or more and 15% for lots that sell for under $500.
