Inspection and Assumption of Risk
Everything will be sold “as is, where is” condition, with no guarantees of any kind, regardless of statement of condition made from the auction block. Buyers shall rely entirely on their own inspection and information. Statements on Certificate(s) Of Authenticity, Grading Certificates, Valuation Certificates, Certificates of Appraisal, Gemological Lab Reports, and the like (collectively referred to herein as COA) are the opinion of the company or entity which issued the COA, and not those of Results Auction LLC. The information contained on the COA is added to the written descriptions of items solely as an attempt to fully disclose any information accompanying the item, and in no way constitutes a guarantee of the validity of the information on the COA. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to verify the claims made on said COA before placing any bids on that item. When placing bids on item(s) accompanied by COA(s) it is the sole responsibility of the bidder to research the company or entity which issued the COA and base bidding activity on the strength of the reputation of the company which issued the COA(s). No refunds will be given due to disputes over the validity of information contained on COA(s).
Every effort is made to “guard” merchandise throughout the auction; however, the bidder becomes solely responsible for all items purchased by them immediately following their winning bid. Therefore, they are advised to further guard items at their own discretion.

On-line absentee bids are accepted up until 1 hour before the live auction begins. these bids are not the final result. absentee bids become part of the live bidding action during the auction and are entered by a proxy bidder who acts on behalf of the absentee bidder.

Extended Bidding Soft Close
Our auction timer remains constant all year round and corresponds with Eastern Standard Time. All auctions are set up with a 1-minute extended bidding period or soft close. The extended bidding period is initiated once an auction item that receives a bid within one minute of closing will extend for an additional minute. During the extended bidding period, all new bids reset the auction countdown to 1 minute. An auction ends when no new bids are entered for a full 1 minute. Each auction is on an independent timer so auctions will end at different times.
Some auction lots may have a minimum price that we are willing to accept for that lot to be sold at auction (“Reserve Price”). If bidding does not meet or exceed the Reserve Price, the lot shall be returned to the consignor or relisted into a future auction (at the sole discretion of Results Auction).

Grading & Authentication
Results Auction values authenticity and recognizes the importance of ensuring all autographed memorabilia being offered has been authenticated by an industry leading authenticator. Authenticators are only added to our approved list following careful review. To be considered, an authenticator must pass our extensive integrity test and must provide a verifiable and professional hologram and/or COA with each item. Please note that no authenticator has guaranteed acceptance. Results Auction, at our sole discretion, may require further authentication on an item, regardless of the authentication already included with the item. In the event we require additional authentication, lots will be authenticated in-house by CAG or JSA. Authentication fees start at $12 per lot. Results Auction will pay the authentication fee(s) initially and deduct the amount from the consignor’s account. There will be no authentication fee for Lots that do not pass the authentication process, and these Lots will be returned to the consignor. The consignor is responsible for the return shipping cost.
The following list of approved authenticators may not be all inclusive and is subject to change without notice.
Approved Grading Authenticators
Beckett Authentication Services
Any grading or authentication by any third party, including any statements made on certificates of authenticity, grading certificates, valuation certificates, certificates of appraisal, gemological laboratory reports, or any similar reports or valuations are exclusively the opinions of the authors, and are not the opinions or statements of Auctioneer. Bidder understands that Auctioneer has not verified any such statements or opinions and does not warrant their accuracy. Bidder relies exclusively on Bidder’s own investigation and information, and assumes all risk of any inaccuracy in statements or opinions expressed by others.
Grading and authentication is not an exact science, and it is possible that two people do not always grade or evaluate the same item alike. Any stated grade or condition or estimated value represents the opinion of the third-party professional whose opinion is quoted in the item(s) description. Lots that are accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from a third-party authenticator are not eligible for return. Absolutely no exceptions will be made regarding this policy. Given the opinionative nature of autograph authentication, autographed items which are accompanied by the Third-Party Authentication(s) listed with a lot represents the opinion of the third-party professional, and no further warranties or guarantees of opinion from outside authenticators, or so-called “experts”, is being implied or guaranteed in any way. 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 on their level of satisfaction of authenticity prior to bidding. Please do not bid on a lot if you are not comfortable with the stated authentication(s) that accompany a lot.
Display cases and frames are used or discarded at the discretion of the Company. Our preference is that, whenever possible, lots are sent without display cases or frames. If a Lot is sent with a display case or frame that the Company removes, Results Auction does not guarantee the display case or frame will be returned with the lot in the event the lot is returned to the consignor but Results Auction will always endeavor to return where possible.
