I cannot find the thread where we were discussing auction house fees, but today at this show I asked the two HA reps about reduced fees. One of them was a little less forthcoming and was all "it depends on what it is you are selling" but the other immediately answered $10-15K would get reduced fees. I asked about getting zero seller fees for $20K and they both hedged a bit and went back to the "depends on what it is" with one saying if it was $20K worth of $100 pages going in Sunday auctions that it would likely be 10% but if it were one $20K page then... (he trailed off, not finishing the sentence). This was in the elevator on the way up to the ballroom and they wanted me to come by the table to finish the conversation but I had that awed bleary eyed thing going on after looking at all the art and left without doing so.

Good to know where that conversation starts (15-20k+), flipping from net buyer to net seller is getting closer every day...

From Ankur's pics

1) Nelson Animated Ink (that's me).

2) Nick Katradis with a few pieces from fellow collector Keif (twice up and golden age art). 

Unfortunately, our buddy Jason did not show until the end when we were leaving.

3) Glen Brunswick

4) Zaddick

5) Zaddick

6) ?

7) Mignola line?

8) Zaddick

9) Albert

10) Albert

11) Albert

12) Scot Eder

 

Overall, turnout was great.  Mignola is certainly bringing in the crowds.

It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new collectors.  We hope to see you at the next show.

Cheers!

N.

The McCay prices were out of hand, almost double market value in my opinion.

I got 4 from Mignola, so I was content. I also almost pulled the trigger on something from Scott Eder and will likely follow up in a few weeks and pick that up.

I can't speak to the prices of the Little Nemo and such (don't know that market at all), but, the political pieces that pre-sold were the best examples of such that I have ever seen.

One dealer I was speaking  with thought they were three times market value I wouldn’t go that far but I thought they were very high

I've skipped the last few NJ shows so I do not know.

Thanks for the response.

I am seeing some overlap with NJ from the posted photo’s but less than I expected. Are the dealers that different or are the displays just looking different (if you know)?

Definetly overlap. This show had much more illustration art than NJ. And artists were in attendance here.

Done! 

Bird, did you (or anyone else for that matter) happen to see the page someone early in line bought? Not sure where you were, but I was probably 12 or 13 people in. I saw it from afar and it looked like possibly a Hellboy in Hell page that was mostly a village shot. I'm curious which one it was exactly and how much it went for. A shame I wasn't earlier cause it looked like something right up my alley that I was looking for...

Nick and I did not set up in NJ.  We were only set up in NYC.  As such, people who attended the NY show were able to go through over 20 folders of OA.

Ankur does a good job taking hi-res photos of wall displays.  What you see on the display racks are show pieces and higher priced items. 

All collectors have different tastes and budgets.  Nick and I try to bring a little something for everyone but each collector has to make the effort to attend the shows and look through the folders for the hidden gems. 

hm

Cheers!

What you said about collectors having to make a little effort is so true!  There is a ton of great art out there, and it's not all going to be on the primary display panels.  David

Can anyone tell me the name of the art dealer when you first walked in the main entrance? He had a ton of pin up cover paintings from the 40s and such.

I didn't catch the name either. They had an Edwin Georgi I inquired about, but it seemed everything was NFS and just for show.

Ah. Good to know. I'm sure I could never afford it, but that's the stuff that's way more in my wheel house and was wonderful to see in person.
