User Agreement 

THE FOLLOWING SETS FORTH THE TERMS ON WHICH Iconic Memorabilia LLC ("Auctioneer"), OFFERS ACCESS TO OUR SERVICE TO BIDDERS ("Bidder"). USE OF THIS SERVICE CONSTITUTES USER'S AGREEMENT WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AS DESCRIBED. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR CHANGE THESE CONDITIONS AT ANY TIME. 

AUCTION BIDDING PROCEDURES & RULES

THIS AUCTION WILL CLOSE USING THE

"OPEN ENDED" 15-MINUTE RULE

***PLEASE READ CAREFULLY***

This auction will be governed by an "open-ended" 15-minute rule. Like a standard 15-minute rule auction, the sale will go into 15-minute rule mode starting on closing day at 5 p.m. PST (8 p.m. EST). However, under the "open-ended" rules, ANY bidder can bid at ANY time on ANY lot in the auction, either before the start of the 15-minute rule or even after the 15-minute rule begins. Hence, even if a bidder has not bid on any particular lot in the sale, under the terms of the "open-ended" 15-minute rule they are able to bid on any lot in the sale even after that start of the 15-minute rule. The extended bidding period will continue indefinitely until Auctioneer has not received any new bids on the entire auction--either by phone or via the internet--for a period of fifteen (15) minutes. At that time, the auction will be deemed completed and winning bidders will be determined. This process may take several hours and the auction may go well into the evening. If you did not plan to stay up late, we strongly suggest you leave your highest "Top All" bid with us prior to the auction's closing. Futhermore, Auctioneer will reserve the right to end the auction at any point after five (5) hours of extended bidding in the 15-Minute Rule period should it be deemed that the auction is being unnecessarily extended by trivial bidding.

If you have any questions regarding the "open-ended" 15-minute rule, please call us at 1-800-325-7127 for further information and clarification.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING AUTHENTICITY

Iconic Memorabilia LLC takes active measures to determine authenticity and bring our bidding clientele security and comfort when bidding on autographed memorablilia. Every autographed lot in this sale is either:

1.)Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) from an industry recognized third-party authentication service

or

2.) Has been examined by a third-party authenticator and is guaranteed to pass a full authentication review.

In cases where an item comes with certification from a company that conducts private signings or deals directly with a athlete/celebrity, the said company's COA will be deemed as sufficient provenance. These companies are well known within the industry and include Steiner Sports, Tri-Star, Mounted Memories and Upper Deck Authenticated.

Note: We strongly suggest you read the remainder of our Terms and Conditions for further information regarding our policies as it relates to grading and authentication.

6.) GRADING AND AUTHENTICATION: Bidder acknowledges as follows: Grading and authentication is an art and not a science. The grade or condition or estimated value herein represents the opinion of the Auctioneer and/or its Consignors. It is possible that two people do not always grade or evaluate the same item alike. Every effort is made by the Auctioneer to determine provenance and authenticity. Auctioneer is not bound by the differing opinion of grading services, outside authenticators, or so-called "experts". LOTS MAY NOT BE RETURNED BASED UPON A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION IN GRADING OR AUTHENTICATION. It is ultimately the Bidder's responsibility to arrive at a final conclusion PRIOR to bidding. Please do not bid on a lot if you are not comfortable with the stated authentication(s) that accompany a lot. Inquiries concerning condition are strongly advised. Internet and/or catalog pictures should NOT be used to determine condition or grade as in some instances pictures have been cropped or enlarged in order to provide the best possible representation of an item within the scale restrictions of the medium. Prospective bidders are welcomed to call our offices at 1-800-325-7127 for detailed condition reports.

 

7.) PAYMENT: Payment is due within 10 days after receiving notification. Notification of winning bids will be made by phone, e-mail and/or standard mail delivery within approximately 72 hours of the auction's closing. Arizona residents will be expected to pay 8.10% state sales tax. Failure to pay in a timely manner will result in the suspension of auction privileges. Our preferred methods of payment are personal checks, money orders, cash and wire transfers. Personal checks will be held until the check clears unless Bidder has established prior credit terms. Auctioneer also accepts payments in the form of major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express). Credit card payments will be accepted at the sole discretion of the Auctioneer. NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT PAYPAL.

 

8.) NON-PAYMENT BY BUYER: Auctioneer reserves the right to charge to the Buyer's credit card any balance remaining on the buyer's auction invoice without further notice to Buyer. Buyer agrees to pay all of Auctioneer's costs, including attorneys' fees, incurred in attempting to collect any sums due to Auctioneer from the Buyer. Buyer further understands and acknowledges that if payment is not received within 14 days of auctions closing that Auctioneer will assess a late payment fee of one and a half percent (1.5%) per week (or maximum allowable under applicable law, whichever is greater) until the invoice is paid in full.

 

9.) RETURNS: Auction is not an approval sale. Lots that are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from a third-party authenticator are not eligible for return. On lots not accompanied by third party authentication or under very limited circumstances not including authenticity (such as gross cataloging error), Buyer may request a review of purchase and voiding of sale. Buyer must notify Auctioneer of this request within three (3) days of receipt of item by providing a detailed written explanation of the alleged gross error. If it is deemed that gross error may have occurred, it is Buyer's responsibility to return the lot in question within seven (7) days of notice for evaluation. Absolutely no exceptions will be made regarding this policy.

 

10. PREVIEWS: Bidders are welcome to preview any and all auction lots in person at the Auctioneer's offices in Anthem, AZ. In person previews will be made by appointment only. Additionally, Auctioneer will gladly provide phone descriptions any time PRIOR to the day of the auction. Appointments and phone descriptions can be made by calling 1-800-325-7127.

 

11.) RESERVES: This auction contains property belonging to third persons known as "Consignors" and lots submitted by Consignors may include a reserve. A reserve is a confidential price agreed to by the consignor and Iconic Memorabilia, LLC, below which a lot will not sell. Iconic Memorabilia, LLC may place bids on behalf of the consignor for such lots up to the reserve.  Max bids placed for those lots with reserves will be automatically bid up to but not above the reserve, or up to the max bid if the reserve exceeds the max bid.

 

12.) ACCEPTANCE OF CONDITIONS: Placement of a bid on any auction lot constitutes acceptance of the above stated Terms and Conditions.
