How did everyone do in the first installment of Mastro's Auction last night? I went hard after only one item, Cameo pepsin - Jesse Burkett but ended up the underbidder as I do many times on these types of pieces.

Oh-for-five, including 32nd runner-up on the T210 Jackson. Intend to hit a bit harder tonight.

I lost out on the 1915 Cracker Jack Joe Jackson SGC 50. Whoever won that card, still got a great deal. Maybe next time.

Prices seemed strong to me on the lots I was following - outbid on all.

We were tracking a number of lots, and were surprised that the prices
realized on the ultra high Kalamazoo Bat and Lone Jack were so low.

Very early in the day, we spoke with a leading 19th century collector who
indicated that he was quite certain that the K Bat would reach 20K
and the Lone Jack 15K-

We suspect the consignor(s) are quite disappointed.

The Lone Jack had somewhat of a light photo as is common for the series. The plastic grade doesn't matter to many/most 19th Century collectors. The Kbats 84 was really nice but was still a common. The lower grade Kbats looked just as nice, to me. I didn't go hard after anything. I thought the prices were about right but maybe a tad low. That being said there were quite a few strong prices too. I watched the T210 Jackson for several of the extended bids and then went to sleep. Those 2 bidders were just not nice to each other.....I mean incremental bids every 27 minutes got me sleepy....Good luck to all tonight except if you are going after things I am .....best regards

In my opinion 19th collectors do not worry as much about the numerical grade as 20th century collectors and worry more about the image and rarity. I believe the KBats that were offered were not as rare as others and that is why we didn't see them go higher. What a perfect opportunity for astute collectors to grab high grade cards before the 19th century collectors realize just how important they are? I assume that the Dorkind group took advantage of this opportunity, congrats.

Quan,

I put my initial bid around $3,000 or $3,500. I was waiting to put a bid at $7,500, but by the time I got home, it was already at $8,000. I wasn't able to go to $8,500. Maybe next time.

We were 0 for 4 on items. Whilst we missed out on several nice lots, prices seemed across the board, tough to classify all items as "strong" or "week."
We look forward to the next online auction.
