For those who haven't seen it yet, we have added a tab to the site's global navigation entitled 'GUU Auctions' that includes information about our upcoming consignment auction. It can also be accessed by clicking on the following link:
Some of the key points regarding the auction are as follows:
- All items offered through GUU will include information from GUU resident experts and also allow buyers to get feedback from members of GUU's social network so members can make fully informed decisions about items of interest.
- The auction will have fully automated, easy-to-use software for bidding.
- The auction will be heavily promoted through all industry publications and online mediums.
- Selected auction items will on on display at a number of shows we will be doing over the next few months. The shows include the SportsFest in the Chicago area, the National Convention in Cleveland and both the TriStar and Hollywood Park shows on the west coast.
- There will be a lower (10%) buyer's premium than many other industry auctions. This will allow buyers and sellers to realize more from our auctions.
- GUU will accept major credit cards and Paypal from bidders.
As noted above, the first show where we will be displaying some of the auction items is the SportsFest from June 8-10 in Schaumberg, Illinois. Please feel free to come by the booth and see us there. For those who can't make it to the SportsFest, we also plan to preview some of the items here on the GUU site when we get back from the show. We already have some really nice pieces and we are happy to share them with our members.
We will be accepting consignments through the last day of the National Convention but please feel free to contact us at any time if you are interested in consigning to this highly anticipated auction. You can contact us at 925.552.8023 or via email at Auctions@gameuseduniverse.com
