What is the – MAKE YOUR OWN OFFER SALE? This sale is unlike any other sale we’ve ever rolled out in over 25 years in the business. We are going to let you contact us and make your own offer on our inventory. If we’re in the ballpark; you’ll own it! Now remember, offering $5 or $10 on a $100 item will most likely land your email in the delete pile, but no reasonable offer will be refused. What’s the worst case scenario? You make and offer and we say no? This sale will be in effect Thursday, June 2nd – Friday, June 17, 2011. After that, most of our merchandise will be tied up and getting ready to roll out for the National Sports Collector’s Convention in Chicago.
Now often times over the years, I’ve been asked, “Rich, how do you price your inventory?” That’s a hard question to answer, but when pricing merchandise there are several factors that go into the equation.
1. What did we pay for it?
2. What does this item sell for on the open market (auction prices – other dealer prices)
3. Supply and demand
4. How much will it cost us to replace this item?
5. How long have we been carrying this piece? (it does cost money to carry inventory)
We expect a ton offers to be coming in, so the better your offer; the more likely the item will end up in your collection. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 215-665-1953.
This sale will be in effect Thursday, June 2nd – Friday, June 17, 2011. After that, most of our merchandise will be tied up and getting ready to roll out for the National Sports Collector’s Convention in Chicago.

WHAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN?
Now we want to assure you, that this is not a going out of business sale. I’ve been collecting since 1981 and selling since 1985. I’m addicted to this hobby.
In fact, as I write this email today, I’m working on 3 estates of deceased professional athletes. Buying these estates takes money. Along with raising some extra capital for trading in the financial markets; I figure why not give my long time loyal customers a chance to grab some super duper bargains.
Remember, this sale will be in effect Thursday, June 2nd – Friday, June 17, 2011 only. I know I’ll probably get a bunch of calls next summer from collectors who will ask me if I’m going to have the “Make Your Own Offer Sale” again. To answer the question, quite frankly; I don’t know. I might get cleaned out.
So go to the website ASAP www.albersheims.com and get in on the “MAKE YOUR OWN OFFER SALE”.
