an Auction? Ever since its inception, WBC has been about competition
and playing games without the distractions of such things as flea markets
and seminars. Why change now? Well, we haven’t. By extending
WBC to six full days and holding the auction during the hours preceding
the start of WBC-proper on Tuesday evening, we get to have our
cake and eat it too without detracting from tournaments.
a service to our members who want to sell or buy long-out-of-print games
at what is perhaps the largest gathering of the players of those games
on the planet without having to go the eBay route of shipping and sight
unseen purchases. What better place to acquire these games than amongst
our annual reunion of friends at WBC in an entertaining auction
without missing any tournaments?
Staff: In 2006, welcome back auctioneers Bruce Reiff, Ken Gutermuth and Keith
Hunsinger and the
entire CABS crew for another splendid
and entertaining afternoon of buying and selling boardgames.
FOR 2006, WBC is offering an Auction
like a flea market, except sellers do not need to supervise the
selling because BPA runs
the entire shebang to allow you to pay attention to
the Auction or play games. It increases the number of items the
BPA can sell, while providing a cost-effective way and efficient
way to sell lower-value items. Plus, everyone has the chance
to accomplish more “shopping” in
less time, since it will be possible to peruse the
Store while the Auction is ongoing within
earshot and bidding range. Only items listed at $30 or lower
may be listed in the Auction store. It is not possible to pre-register
games for the Auction Store, but you should bring completed
Auction Store Item Sheets when you register items on site. IMPORTANT:
Review the details of both the auction and auction store before
deciding where to submit your items.

from 2005: The WBC’s 2005 auction was another success with
an expanded time slot and an increase of 68% in number of items sold.
There was no shortage of items for sale as the final number of lots
auctioned reached 644. This quantity was only eclipsed by its quality
as all 644 lots were sold with an average selling price per lot of
$24.30, only slightly down from the $26.50 of last year. Two lots sold
for over $200, with Titan topping the list for the second year
in a row at $230. The number of lots sold for over $100 increased to
13. An additional 59 lots went for over $50. Only 11 lots went for
the minimum bid of $1, and only 62 items went for $5 or less. Overall,
103 different buyers walked home with additions to their collections,
slightly higher than last years 92 different buyers. A total of 36
buyers spent over $100 dollars and eight individuals spent more than
$500. See the full list
of sales during the 2005 Auction.
