So two good questions have come up

1) Does the winner get the set for their bid, or one increment above the next highest bid? Example, if I bid $2,200 and another bidder bids $2,400 at auction close, does he pay $2,225 or $2,400?

2) must bids be public or can one bid anonymously via PM

Answers;

The winner will win for his actual bid in the scenario above the $2400 would be the winning bid

I would really like to keep it public that way everybody knows it was fair.

Thanks for the great question let me know if there are any others

wish I had the funds. I could probably place a bid for fun, and be outbid, just to say I was a part of this

I wanted to say that the $1 chips do NOT have the cancellation hot-stamp that many $1's have. This is in no way designed to make everyone bid higher and more often.... Well ok so it is.

I would not think you would have ever tried to sell us bad chips man! Thanks for making us clear on the chips. I'm not sure how this will go. At least I have all those TRK hotstamps and blanks to mill when I lose so I'm not freaking out about this one. I'd be more upset to lose a shot at Mark Twain secondaries. :)

To ease the minds of all bidders, I'm sitting this one out... I'd love to add on, but no can do. :(

Smart money was counting on your bid man! :confused:

We should actually have a side bet on who's gonna snag those... I think it'll be a dog fight! :)

So if I bet Paolo that I'll win this for say 7000 dollars and the price turns out to be 7000, does that mean Paolo just bought me a Mapes set minus the shipping?

Exactly, LOL!!!

But of course I'll then bid $7,025 and have the set for $25! Hahahaha... I've play that game in college before and once you're in, you're basically screwed...

I have four front runners in mind Slisk, and you're definitely one of them... I can tell you I'm trying to re-finance my house so I can get in the hunt... I'm not among those four favorites though... I'm playing poker at @mike32 Friday so if I have a profitable night, who knows, anything can happen... ;)
