John,
Scott won't post here on the site. Like many other dealers they try to stay neutral. Not many vendors post here.


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

Here is Scott Benjamin"s reply:

"The term "Wholesale" can be a gray area. To me it means about 75% of retail, give or take a few..... When we buy collections we buy at wholesale to make money.. Auction houses demand about 15-20 plus % to their consignees. Hope that helps. Scott"

So, I guess we look at the wholesale price when buying a collection or quite a few globes from someone and retail price when just buying a globe or two.
