Bidding Ends Tomorrow!

Bidding Ends Tomorrow In Grey Flannel Auctions’ August 20th Hall Of Fame Catalog

Please note that this is a significantly smaller amount of lots than our last catalog and we expect the bidding to end earlier in the night than you may be accustomed to with our usual auctions. If the auction continues past Midnight EST we reserve the right to close it at any time. If you truly have interest in winning a lot we encourage you to place your bids early and not wait out the clock. The sale may end earlier than you expect.

INITIAL BIDS REMINDER | Initial bids must be placed prior to 9:00 PM EST on Wednesday, August 20th, 2014 if you wish to participate in the extended bidding portion of our auction. Once in Extended Bidding, bidding on each lot will be limited to only those bidders who have previously placed their initial bids on that specific lot. For ongoing lots after the close of initial bidding, the 20-minute rule will be applied. The 20-minute rule means the auction will not end until there are no bids for the entire auction for a period of 20 minutes. The entire auction will close simultaneously, not one lot at a time.
