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.
