REA is Robert Edward Auctions which will end on May 1. I hope the set does well, they did a good job on the write up. They seem to have primarily Prewar cards in their Auctions, but with any luck there will be a few people out there interested in bidding on it.

Hi Matt! How does it feel to be auctioning off a set you spent 3 years tediously putting together? It must be kind of bittersweet I imagine? I trust that REA does you well as for the promotion and successful sale. I doubt anyone will ever put together another set to rival yours...just my own thoughts. Thanks for sharing the thrills with me and everyone here who watched you assemble your masterpiece. Now that its on the auction block, I'm curious to see where the numbers finally end. If it doesn't go for over $125,000, I will be shocked! Good luck and keep us posted!

Which set I build next depends alot on how this one does at Auction. If it goes for somewhere in the neighborhood of Earl's optimistic prediciton I will be very HAPPY!

I understand your desire to sell it whole, with (perhaps) the hope of the buyer keeping it intact. But you could be leaving a substantial sum of green on the table.

I doubt a single individual buyer will push it above six figures. You may get a few guys that go in together and agree to split it up. That might get it up to the six figure level.

At an average grade of 91.1, that roughly translates to an 8.388 on the 10-point scale. At least five current sets on the PSA Registry exceed that numerical average, but I have no doubt whose set is the higher quality. Yours!

Here's hoping some of those Registry Chasers bid you up, with the intent on crossing to improve their lot in life. Though that would be a sad day indeed to break up a beautiful SGC set.

I agree with bbo that breaking it up would bring in a higher total price. In fact one reason to buy as a set is to break it up for profit, so it may be broken up sometime down the line anyway. Anyway GL on your sale.

Good luck on the sale Matt, while I agree with what bbo is saying about breaking it and I sell my stuff piece by piece, every time I have tried to buy an exhibit set at auction the last 3 years it goes for record numbers, gurr go figure. I hope you have the same luck.

$65K sounds low to me. Anyone else have a comment?
