do their listed sale prices include the 15%??  or the highest bid?

It’s added on top of what the final sale is. They don’t always charge that though. I believe it’s something special about books from this auction.

What was the final price for the Flash 86 4.5?

Sold for about $9400 after the buyers premium.

Yeah, not sure how collectors and companies like GPA and GoCollect will be handling this little wrinkle since unlike Heritage which doesn't even show the irrelevant hammer price once the auction is over, it would appear that CC is still showing only the hammer price when you go into their auction archives.  doh!

So, unlike Heritage which automatically grosses everything up by the 20% BP in order to reflect the higher actual price paid by the winner, it looks like we are all going to have to read the auction listing in orer to see if we should be topping up their so-called "non-final" number in order to get the actual price paid for the book. :frustrated:

What an unnecessary pain and hassle unless this gets fixed by CC because what's the point of giving potential bidders in future auctions that a book has sold for less money than it actually did sell for.  :facepalm:  

For example, if you go into their auction archives, it shows that the CGC 9.6 graded copy of TMNT 1 sold for $88,000 which is actually correct because there was no addition BP on top of that.  With the CGC 8.0 graded copy of Batman 1 though, their auction archive clearly states that it sold for only $1,050,000 which is NOT actually correct because if you read the auction description, the first line clearly states that an additional 15% BP is to be added in which means the final price paid was actually $1,207,500 which unfortunately doesn't show up anywhere.  :screwy:

Certainly hope they fix this because if they don't, that means going forward, we are now going to have to actually read the details of every single auction listing in order to determine the actual price paid for the book.  :pullhair:  :censored:

well, in a positive light, the fact that CC auction site wasn't built to handle buyers premiums supports the idea that this was never in Metros plans, and was sprung on them by the Kentucky consignor, no?  Shouldn't be too hard for them or GPA/George to change the final prices to include the BC... a spreadsheet should do the trick.

We'll have no problem in including the BP - CC share their data with us.

Sounds perfect then and so much for the rumour that CC doesn't share ALL of their data with you guys.  :applause:

Now, if you can somehow just convince Josh to share all of his CL auction results with you guys.  :devil:  :wishluck:

Looks like you don't actually have to even click onto the auction listing as the 15% BP notation is right there on the first line and you can see it in their archive right under the name of the book and the name of the publisher along with the CGC grade.  (thumbsu

I know this has been discussed but who gets the 15%? If its going to the consignor then maybe he did spring it on them and they agreed in order to get the books. If it isn't going to the consignor then it's very unlikely it was his doing. Or maybe they are splitting it in some way. Either way I hope we have seen the last of it.
