Consignors maximize their profits selling in Pedigree’s Grand Auctions, 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 that Buyers Premium amount from their final bidding price, meaning less money 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 money you take home under Pedigree Comics’ Climbing Scale. They consistently set new sales records for Silver and Bronze Age comics in each Grand Auction and on their regular site inventory. Pedigree’s Grand Auctions are unique and exciting, with new and diversified, top-rated CGC material in each event. Why settle for less by consigning with someone else?

Prospective consignors can also upload their own scans, item information, descriptions and reserve amounts for the January Grand Auction by utilizing the Automated Consignment System. It is actually very easy and fun to do. Just register on the site, click "Customer Page" under "Your Account" and then click "Consignments" (under "Auctions"). You will then be able to enter the Pedigree Comics Consignment Management System and upload your own CGC-certified books and magazines. They will receive an email notification automatically once you have uploaded the information and they will then review the information imparted for accuracy. The item(s) will then be added to the January Grand Auction to be bid on. You will be amazed how simple it is to utilize the Automated Consignment System.
