How To Bid

BIDDING: All records have a minimum bid. You may bid the minimum and win IF no other bids are received. Most of the records will sell at a price well above the minimum bid, so you may wish to bid competitively. You may find out the current high bid on any item by phone only. If you choose to bid on any item after finding out the current high bid, you must raise the current high bid by 10% or more or pass on the item. To place bids on records: Call:

(800) 955-1326 (USA only) or (541) 476–1326, Fax: (541) 476-3523,

Write: P.O. Box 1727, Grants Pass, Oregon 97528 USA or


CALL BACKS: On the last day of the auction, sometimes a bidder may choose to “go to war” with other bidders over a particular record(s). If you wish to engage in such a “bidding war,” you must notify me before closing time of the auction. Tell me which record(s) you wish to “battle over.” You must be available for a CALLBACK between 7 and 9 PM Pacific Standard Time on closing day. I will then contact you to give the opportunity to “duke it out” over the records you want most either until you are “declared the winner” or until you are “knocked out of the ring.” If you cannot be reached, the bidding will continue without you. With the exception of CALLBACKS (as defined above), I will not disclose the winning bids until 24 hours after the close of the auction. I will not disclose the identities of any bidders or winners. No exceptions.

PAYMENT: Winners will receive an invoice listing records won, plus postage and insurance charges. You will be given the opportunity to purchase a printout of the winning bids for all items in the auction for an additional $2.00. First class or air mail postage charges will be added to all winnings. U.S. residents may pay by VISA, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover Card (all major credit cards welcome), or by money order, personal or bank check. You may also send cash at your own risk via registered mail. All others outside the U.S.A. must pay in U.S. DOLLARS by VISA, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover Card, (all major credit cards welcome), or by International Money Order, check drawn on U.S. bank (with proper routing numbers only!) or by U.S. currency sent via registered mail at your own risk. You must pay for the records you’ve won within 30 days. Exceptions may be made for orders over $5,000 at my sole discretion. If you need more than 30 days to pay for your winnings, please pay for them with your credit card.

Good Luck!
