REA has been hard at work for the last three weeks processing our largest auction ever, but we wanted to take a minute to thank all of our bidders and consignors who make all our auctions possible and to share some impressive facts about the hobby’s most successful auction this spring! You can read the entire post-auction release on our website, but here’s the short version:
Total sales of $10,928,000 make this one of the most successful single-day sports auctions in history! More lots, more new bidders, more bids, more winners, and more consignors make this a record-setting event for REA and confirm the hobby’s incredible trust in REA to provide the best items, the best descriptions, the most trusted auction process, and the quickest shipment of winning lots and payment of consignor proceeds.
Nearly all winning invoices were processed within 24 hours of receiving payment, and fifteen business days removed from the close of the auction, millions upon millions of dollars are already paid out to consignors! Nearly 75% of this auction’s consignors are paid in full as of today with the balance mailing in the coming days! This is before we have even collected all the money (lots still left to collect!) but we are committed to turning around money for consignors quicker than any other auction house in the hobby!
With all that said, there’s no time to waste in assembling a blockbuster follow-up auction for this fall! We are accepting consignments immediately and offering the very best consignment terms to early consignors! Discounted fees, free grading and authentication, and increased advertising possibilites are all available to consignors who act NOW! Cash advances are also always available, and we can offer early consignors more significant amounts to tide them over until October!
Everyone always wants to consign at the last minute, but we strongly encourage those who are even THINKING about consigning to contact us today and discuss your items with us before the summer craziness sets in! There is only one auction house that can offer the track record of REA: the best material, the best prices, the best catalog, the best service, and the best choice for your important consignments!
We are also putting together a summer travel schedule that will be bringing us to locations around the country! If you want us to come to your home and pick up consignments, reach out NOW so that we can make plans! We will be exhibiting at the Chantilly show in Chantilly, VA July 14-16 and at the National in Rosemont, IL July 26-30.
Please call 908-226-9900 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how to make plans to get your items to us!
