High-grade Silver and Bronze Age Marvels and DCs in Pedigree Comics’ September Grand Auction




Posted on 9/4/2012

This live, online event is shaping up to be one of the very best auctions of the year and will have a few hundred choice high-grade, CGC-certified Marvels and DCs from the Silver and Bronze Ages — including many key and first appearance issues.


























According to Pedigree Comics’ Doug Schmell, the high-grade consignments are continuing to come in for their upcoming September Grand Auction, scheduled to begin in just over two weeks on the night of Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012, and last for 10 days until the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 2. The sooner you consign your books, the more exposure and press they will receive. Pedigree Comics aggressively promotes and advertises each Grand Auction on many online sites and trade publications. They also send periodic newsletters to all of their more than 18,000 customers, announcing the individual auction items. There is no Buyer's Premium on any of the lots in the auction and almost every book will be listed without a reserve (well over 90%). Every book is CGC graded and the minimum bid is only $100. You can check out the Auction Preview right now at www.PedigreeComics.com under the Grand Auctions banner.

Please check the Pedigree Comics website and the CGC boards in the next few weeks for the latest news and additions to the September Grand Auction, including the grades on more than 50 killer books (Marvels and DCs, including many early Justice League of America issues in ultra-high grade) remaining from the Wizard World Chicago show collection that are at CGC awaiting certification. These books will all be graded and listed in time for the auction.

Pedigree will continue to accept consignments for the auction until midnight on Tuesday, Sept. 25, so check the site and read the following for consignment instructions to get your books in now.

Mr. Schmell invites you to take advantage of Pedigree’s many outstanding services. Consignors maximize their profits selling in the Grand Auction — more so than on any other auction site or auction house. Pedigree does not charge a Buyers’ Premium, an amount that most bidders take into consideration when bidding in other sites. (The bidders simply deduct the Buyers’ Premium amount — usually 20% of the winning price — from their final bid, meaning less $$ to the consignor and more to the auction site.) The higher the value of your book(s) that sell in a Grand Auction, the more $$ you take home under Pedigree Comics’ Climbing Scale.

A Climbing Scale is in effect for consigned items with a winning bid as follows:

10% commission for any consigned item that sells for up to $10,000 (consignor’s proceeds = $90% of the final bid price);
9% commission for any consigned item that sells for more than $10,000 and up to $25,000 (consignor’s proceeds = $91% of the final bid price);
8% commission for any consigned item that sells for more than $25,000 and up to $50,000 (consignor’s proceeds = $92% of the final bid price);
6% commission for any consigned item that sells for more than $50,000 and up to $100,000 (consignor’s proceeds = $94% of the final bid price);
5% commission for any consigned item that sells for more than $100,000 (consignor’s proceeds = $95% of the final bid price).

Pedigree Comics consistently sets new sales records for Golden Age, Silver Age and Bronze Age comic books and magazines in each of their bi-monthly auctions and they do not saturate the market with the same material each month. Grand Auctions are unique and exciting, with brand-new, CGC-certified and diversified, highest-quality material in each event. Why take home less $$ and settle for less by consigning with someone else?

There are three easy ways to consign your books to any of Pedigree’s upcoming Grand Auctions. The only criteria is that the books must be CGC-graded and worth no less than $100.00. If you have high-grade raw books that you want to have certified and sold in a Grand Auction, you can utilize Pedigree’s Raw to Riches Consignment Service. They will have your books certified under their account and will lay out all the CGC grading fees in advance for you (refer to the website and their ad in the Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide for all the details of the Raw to Riches Consignment Service).



Here is how to consign:
1. Ship your books directly to their offices in Wellington, FL. They will inventory, scan and upload each book into the September Grand Auction listing. The books will be listed under your personal account and you will receive email notification at the conclusion of the auction with a list of every consigned book that sold, along with the winning bid made.


2. Email the scans of the books you wish to consign directly to DougSchmell@pedigreecomics.com. They will format and upload each scan onto their server and then put each book into the Grand Auction listing. Please use a .jpeg format with the resolution set at 72 and the pixel width at 550 for optimal clarity. If you do not have a scanner, you can use a digital camera.


3. You can upload your own scans, item information, book descriptions and reserve amounts, if any, by utilizing their Automated Consignment System. Just register onto the site (www.PedigreeComics.com) and login, click the “Customer Page” tab under “Your Account,” and then click “Consignments” (under the “Auctions” heading). You will then be able to enter the Pedigree Comics Consignment Management System and list your own CGC-certified books and magazines. Pedigree will receive an email once you have uploaded the scan and book information for each individual item into the system and they will then review the information imparted for accuracy. The item(s) will then be added to the September Grand Auction listing to be bid on. You will be amazed how simple it is to use the Automated Consignment System.



If you have any questions or comments about the consignment process, any of the auction lots or about the Grand Auction in general, please contact Mr. Schmell at 561-422-1120 (office) or 561-596-9111 (mobile), or by email at DougSchmell@pedigreecomics.com.
