Every January we talk about this,and for 11 mos. after,we see it happen no place else.
The fact that BJ won't consign Automobilia,but will buy Automobilia outright,then sell them as their own,should tell you something right there.
Their bidders will overpay for it & BJ doesn't want to share that.

i believe they do take consignments... just don't know what it takes to be an consignor.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

Somehow they have managed to get billed as the top place to be for the elite to blow their money. It's a lesson in American capitalism for sure....GB

Watching this from the bidding gallery the last two days I noticed that there were 3 guys that were bidding up the majority of the high dollar items. Just a guess, but I believe at least two of the three were taking the opportunity to build collections. Obviously can't say for sure but I highly doubt that they had any idea of what the market value was for any of the items they were bidding on and they really didn't care - they wanted it and were going to get it no matter what the cost. They have the ability to do that and I envy them. But at the end of the day, do we really think this will have a major impact on hobby prices - the heart and soul of this hobby is embedded in guys that use this site and others just like us. I don't believe anyone here is going to go out and pay $2000 for an Apco capco globe just because someone at BJ did. Insanity will only last for a few more days and this too shall pass.

Everyone wants to say they have part of the Ron Pratt collection. That is a big part of what is going on here. His collection is in the neighborhood of 1500 pieces that will cross the block.

I agree with the argument that this is probably more about bragging rights among the guys with money. It's a game. Who can hold their breath longer? Who can drink more shots? Who can outspend whom? is how the rich boys play. What you and I take seriously with careful thought, they play games with on a whim. I'm not saying that's good or bad. It's their money and that's a very exclusive club. In the end, it's a successful day for the auctioneer and the seller. So, good for them.

I agree that prices are very high on this stuff. Anyone who has ever been to an auction, has seen bidders overpay for things? I have been {that} person, a time or two. An auction like Barrett Jackson is a Premier Event. Like it or not, they do a great job in promoting and executing the entire affair. I think that if a buyer is spending his money, he can certainly pay as much as he wants. If it wasn't done at Barrett Jackson, it would just be some other auction house. The discussion would be the same, the names would be changed, to protect the innocent. " Just the facts, Ma'am." Paul www.severngaspumps.com
