Auction Kings Proves Bidders Overpay

I just finished watching this week's episode of Auction Kings on Discovery. This week featured a lot of baseball cards that included, amongst others, a '56 Mantle and a Satchel Paige RC. The clip below provides the experts appraisal. The results reiterated my experience at a live auction a few weeks ago where attending bidders overpaid and gave me further reason to believe that live auctions may maximize a collections value far greater than selling online. The gavel dropped on the lot for more than 3x the high range of the appraisal.

They had an '86 Fleer Jordan graded to like 6. I thought for sure it would go way to high but I think it went for a few hundred.
