New High-Grade Silver Age Consignment in Pedigree Comics’ April Grand Auction




Posted on 3/5/2013

The consignments are continuing to come in for Pedigree Comics’ upcoming April Grand Auction. Slated to begin on the night of Mon., April 8, and last through the night of Thurs., April 18, the auction will have a few hundred choice, high-grade, CGC-certified Marvels and DCs from the Silver and Bronze Ages — plus other genres and publishers.

The sooner you consign your books, the more exposure and press they will receive. Pedigree aggressively promotes and advertises each Grand Auction on many online sites and trade publications. They also send periodic newsletters to all of their 19,000+ customers, announcing the individual auction items. There is no Buyer's Premium on any of the lots in the auction, and most of the lots will have no reserve. Every book is CGC graded and the minimum bid is only $100.

The focus of this article is the brand new consignment of high-grade Silver Age Marvels, DCs, Dells and Gold Keys from Boca Raton, Fla., that Pedigree recently received for the auction. There are more than 50 books in total. The books were just graded two weeks ago and are beautiful with outstanding page quality. Almost every book is in 9.4 and 9.6 condition, plus a bunch of 9.8’s as well. Here are some of the highlights from the collection:

Please check the Pedigree Comics website (www.PedigreeComics.com), and the CGC Chat Boards in the next few weeks for the latest news and additions to the April Grand Auction.

Pedigree will continue to accept consignments for the auction until midnight on Thurs., April 11, so check the site and read the following for consignment instructions and get your books in now.

Pedigree Comics CEO and President Doug 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 Buyer’s Premium, an amount that most bidders take into consideration when bidding in other sites. (The bidders simply deduct the Buyer's 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, as follows:

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

10% commission for any consigned item that sells 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 bimonthly 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, in which they will have your books certified under their account and 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, Fla. They will inventory, scan and upload each book into the April 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 them at 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 on the site, (www.PedigreeComics.com) log in, 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. They 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 April 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 April 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. For any financial related and consignment payment questions, please contact Pedigree's CFO, Lisa Shapiro, at Lisa@pedigreecomics.com and for any technical related questions or concerns, please contact their webmaster at WebDesigner@pedigreecomics.com.
