So, we did it again.

We knew that our Winter Auction was going to be a great one as soon as we saw the quality of items lined up in our office. There was no doubt; the hobby would be amazed once again by every single item offered in this auction.

And last Tuesday, it all happened. Collectors were amazed and recognized the level of quality that Classic Auctions is now offering on a steady basis. We are proud of the experience we provide for collectors as well as consignors and we appreciate the trust we get from the hobby.

Our team works very hard all year long to make sure every single detail is as perfect as it can be. The final results speak by themselves; our winter auction was our best auction since we established a Guinness World Record 3 years ago back in June 2010!

Here’s a few record numbers from Tuesday night’s blockbuster closing. All prices are in US funds and include buyer’s premium.
