Happy Thanksgiving to all from us here at REA! During this time of thanks, we want to extend a huge THANK YOU to our loyal bidders and consignors who made this year a banner year for REA! Both the Spring and Fall auctions grossed in excess of $10,000,000 each for the first time ever!
More bidders placed more bids on more items with REA this year than in any other year ever! We are so thankful for the trust that collectors place in REA to deliver exceptional items and exceptional results with exceptional service at every step of the way. REA is proud to continue to be the leader in the sports auction field, and we look forward to continuing to work tirelessly for our buyers and sellers for years to come!
We are three weeks post-auction, and all consignor checks (several hundreds of them!) have mailed! No other auction house consistently pays all the consignors as fast as REA! This is millions and millions of dollars in consignor’s pockets in less than three weeks. We had 932 different winning bidders from all around the world. We processed payments and shipments with record speed this auction, shipping over 90% of the orders within 24 hours of receiving payment. On our peak shipping day, we shipped 160 packages to winning bidders! We appreciate the fact that many bidders get us payment quickly, so we want to do what we can to get the great items into the hands of collectors! These packages were also shipped for FREE as REA continues to offer FREE shipping on 99% of items purchased in the auction.
As successful as the Fall Auction was, we are not one to rest on our laurels! We are already hundreds of lots into working on the Spring Auction, and we will be hitting the ground running starting in early December to gather more great material for future auctions! We plan to travel extensively this year, and we invite collectors to contact us if they are considering selling items or entire collections that they would prefer we pick up. We currently have consignment trips planned to Florida, Texas, New Hampshire, Illinois, Virginia, and Ohio. We will be set up at the Valley Forge, PA show December 1-3 (www.phillyshow.com for more information). If you are in these areas, please reach out to discuss meeting up with us. If you are elsewhere in the country, let us know. We can hop on a plane at a moment’s notice for the right collection! E-mail email@example.com or call 908-226-9900.
We are offering the very best consignment deals to consignors who contact us before the start of the new year. Generous cash advances, discounted consignment rates, free grading and authentication, increased advertising, and other incentives are available if you act NOW! We are always interested in large collections of cards or memorabilia, 19th century items, game-used material, unopened wax and cello boxes, complete sets, advertising and display pieces, and single graded cards.
