To keep up with what it says is strong demand from both consignors and customers, Goldin Auctions h
as announced the launch of quarterly online only auctions. The first kicked off Monday with 775 lots of sports, entertainment and historical memorabilia.
The two-week event is the first of four such quarterly internet-only auctions scheduled for this year to accommodate items that do not make it into the company’s catalog auctions, or a re-offering of items that did not sell previously.
“Our continued growth made it impossible to accommodate all of the consignments we are receiving in our catalog and live auctions,” said Ken Goldin, company founder. “These four internet-only auctions will allow consignors to sell items on short notice and collectors to find unique items and great deals at a variety of price points.”
The auction is open for bidding through March 24 at GoldinAuctions.com. Minimum bids on more than 500 of the items are $100 or less.
Some of the highlights in the inaugural sale include: a 1921-28 Ty Cobb game-used Hillerich & Bradsby 125 Louisville Slugger bat; a Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig dual signed 1927-era American League Ban Johnson baseball; a 20-lot collection from newly inducted Hall of Famer Chipper Jones; a 1911-12 C55 Imperial Tobacco #38 George Vezina rookie card graded SGC 70, a Ken Griffey Jr. signed home run bat; a single-signed Thurman Munson baseball; a Rolling Stones autographed American Stratocaster Guitar with all five members’ signatures; an Abraham Lincoln signed & dated 1861 postmaster appointment document; and an Apollo 1 crew signed 8″x10″ photo.
