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.
