The initial bidding period will close at 9:00 PM EST on the date above. You must place an initial bid on an item before 9:00 PM on the day the auction closes to be eligible to bid on that item during the extended bidding period. If you have not bid on a particular lot before 9:00 PM you may not bid on that lot after 9:00 PM. If you are the only bidder on a lot at 9:00 PM you will be declared the winner. After 9:00 PM, the auction will continue until the bids stop coming in for 5 minutes. The 5 minute rule applies to all lots in the auction and all lots will remain open as long as a bid has been placed on any item. All lots will close at the same time.
The final time of closing will be determined by the application of the 5 minute rule. During the extended bidding period, all new bids reset the auction countdown to 5 minutes. The auction ends when no new bids are entered for a full 5 minutes. To avoid having to stay up late please use an absentee bid.
We encourage early and absentee bidding if do not want to stay up on the final day of the auction. The auction site will place bids,on your behalf, up to the maximum amount only if the absentee bid is raised by another bidder. If we receive two absentee bids of the same amount, the first one placed will be the high bidder. For example, if you have a current high bid at $500 and have placed an absentee bid up to a maximum of $1,000 and another bid comes at $600, your absentee bid will automatically raise the high bid to $660. This will continue until your maximum bid has been reached. If there are no other bids, you will win the lot for $660, plus buyer’s premium. All absentee bids will remain confidential.
Items will be sold to the highest bidder at the close of the auction. Opening Bids cannot be lower than the minimum bid. After the opening bid, the minimum bid increment is the greater of $5.00 or 10% above the previous high bid. A.J Sports World reserves the right to accept or refuse any or all bids.
