Sometimes, it pays to try something new.
Robert Edward Auctions, long known for producing voluminous catalogs full of sports history three times a year, tried its hand at an internet-only T206 set break auction, with a high quality 522-card collection going on the block card-by-card. The ten-day auction wrapped up just after midnight Monday morning, with the set and a modest number of duplicates raking in $207,677. The total eclipsed all pre-auction estimates according to company officials. A total of 13,944 bids were placed.
