MONTHLY AUCTIONS

Badger Stamp Club auctions are open to BSC members only. Sellers must submit the club's standard auction lot form with each item. Forms are available from the auction clerk. If help is required, the auction clerk will be happy to assist in filling out the form.

Lot forms and tally sheets are also available here for download for those who choose to save time at the meeting by preparing them at home. Use the tally sheet only if you are entering at least five lots. Fill in "Owner," "Description," and "Minimum Bid." All forms must be presented to the auction clerk for lot number assignments before placing lots on the auction table. PLEASE cut lot forms evenly to one-quarter page size. PLEASE cut tally sheets evenly to one-half page size.

Lot check-in begins during the "talk 'n' swap" (trade/buy/sell) session and must be completed 15 minutes before the general meeting. General meetings begin promptly and all want an opportunity to study lots beforehand.

Bids are taken from the floor as our auctioneer goes through each individual lot. If you are a successful bidder, please announce your name immediately, and a runner will deliver your lot to you. The auction clerk will collect your payment when the auction has concluded. Checks will be accepted.

Club auctions are commission-free. Sellers are paid their amount due as soon as all buyers have remitted payment. At the close of the auction, bidders are asked to remain seated for five minutes while owners of no-bid lots retrieve their material. No-bid lots may be resubmitted at succeeding auctions.
