Auction Watch: Preview Hunt Auction's January Auction

Bidding on items in Hunt Auction's January online auction closes tomorrow, Wednesday January 18th at 10PM (EST).  A "Phillies" keyword search of the lots produces 118 results.  Here are three pieces of Phillies memorabilia I took note of:

Lot # 923 - Assorted Phillies Postseason Memorabilia

Description (from Hunt Auctions' site)Lot of assorted Philadelphia Phillies playoffs & World Series related memorabilia, c.1976-2009 (VG-MT). 

Current bid: $62

Comments: I really like going to an auction or yard sale and throwing a bunch of stuff in a box for deal making.  A lot like this one is just that: many great items across all eras, some rare...and of course, a scrapbook thrown in for good measure.

Update (1/19/12):  I followed this lot through bidding on Wednesday night, throwing in a high bid (at one point).  As I mentioned in the original post, this listing had a lot to offer, and I'm not surprised it garnered other Phillies collector's attention.  At the end of the night, bidding closed at $266!

Comments: Wow!  Great piece, complete with a COA from the Phillies.  Jerseys like these make me realize there are some BIG TIME collectors out there.  Rubber-necking scenario here...following this one to see how high those bids get!

Comments: I don't know a whole lot about these statues, but have seen a few of them come and go in previous auctions.  Common problem is missing pieces, and that doesn't seem to be a concern here.  Also, how great is that Johnny Callison Transogram?!

Update: I had a not-so-serious bid in early on Wednesday night for this lot of Phillies figurines.  Some more serious bidder walked away with them for $189.
