April 27, 2006

Who Can Bid? Bidding is limited to those with a current WBC badge. Every bidder needs an official Bid number. They are $1 each and will be available 10 minutes prior to (and during) the auction from the Auction staff in Lancaster Showroom. Return them to the auction cashier in the same condition for a full refund.

Caveat Emptor! (Buyer beware). We do our best to accurately describe items up for bid, but we are not responsible for mistakes or missing components. We will try to validate the condition of all items sold, but by accepting a Bid number, prospective buyers agree to hold BPA and its auction staff harmless in the event of disputed merchandise. All sales are final!

Item Description: Lots offered for sale will be defined by the seller as being in one of the following physical condition categories. You should familiarize yourself with these terms so as to better judge the condition of what is being offered.

Shrink: Still in the original shrink wrap
Mint/Unpunched: Item is unpunched, unplayed and complete.
Punched/Complete: Item is punched and seller verifies completeness.
As Is: Item is punched and seller has no idea as to completeness.
Defective: Item has a declared flaw such as water damage, torn box, or missing pieces.

A brief description of the item describing any extra bonus features such as sorting trays, variant pieces, etc. should be provided for any items which include them.

Cash Only: In God we trust, all others pay cash. When you win an item you must come forward to pay the cashier and claim your purchase immediately. We are not set up for checks or credit cards. Buyers who fail to complete their purchases promptly in the view of our cashier will forfeit their Bid number immediately without refund.

Tabs: Tabs are only available by special arrangement with the head auctioneer and require a non-refundable cash deposit (which will be credited towards your purchases—unused balances are lost.) Please see the head auctioneer PRIOR to the start of the auction. All Tabs must be settled, IN CASH, immediately after the auction. Any questions pertaining to this policy should be directed to the auctioneer at BDReiff@aol.com.

Minimum Bids: All bids will be in $1 increments. If you can’t afford to bid a full dollar you shouldn’t be bidding. Auctions proceed quickly so bid loud and clear. If the auctioneer can’t see or hear you it’s your fault. The auction staff will be bidding as well. Please feel free to bid against them—they’ll be bidding against each other anyway so why shouldn’t you?!

Schedule: We will attempt to group the offerings by theme, with Euros proceeding Wargames and the collectibles saved for last. Exceptions will occur since we cannot control when late arriving items will be registered.
