Terms and Conditions of Sale


AutographStore.com uses Federal Express (FedEx) to handle all domestic shipping within the continental United States and International shipping outside the United States. All autographed collectibles are shipped with delivery confirmation tracking available upon request. With this service, there is no signature required, and the package will be left at the delivery location, if no one is at the home or business to receive it. A tracking number for your package can be emailed to any winning bidder upon request. Should you require an alternative shipping method, please send an email to info@autographstore.com prior to processing payment. Additional fees may apply. Winning bidders must provide a valid physical street address in order to receive auction merchandise. Registered bidders can confirm their shipping information is correct or update it by logging in to the “My Account” section of this site.

Domestic Shipping Fees for 8" x 10" photographs, sheet music, animation cels and original sketches are $9.00 for the first item won and $1.00 for each additional item won during the same auction. An additional $10.00 shipping fee will be applied to all domestic orders for 11" x 14" photographs, 16" x 20" photographs, movie posters and concert posters. An additional $35.00 shipping fee will be applied to all domestic orders for record albums, drumheads, guitars and sports equipment.

International Shipping Fees for 8" x 10" photographs, sheet music, animation cels and original sketches are $17.50 for the first item won and $1.00 for each additional item won during the same auction. An additional $20.00 shipping fee will be applied to all international orders for 11" x 14" photographs, 16" x 20" photographs, movie posters and concert posters. An additional $50.00 shipping fee will be applied to all international orders for record albums, drumheads, guitars and sports equipment.

Payments Methods:

Payments can be processed via this site using either PayPal or a valid credit card. Payments via PayPal should be sent to auctions@autographstore.com. Please note, AutographStore.com no longer accepts payments via check or money order by mail. All payments must be made electronically via this site.

Payment of Invoices:

Invoices won items will be emailed to winning bidders within 24 hours of the auction closing. Please do not contacat our office regarding invoices prior to the day after the auction closes. All invoices must be paid within two weeks of the invoice date. This term of sale is very important, as prompt payment of auction invoices is essential to an orderly reconciliation of the auction. Any bidder who has not paid for won items in full without having made prior arrangements for late payment will have future bidding privileges revoked.

Starting Bids:

AutographStore.com believes what makes a good auction is quality material and reasonable starting bids that reflect the value of the autographed collectibles for sale. The vast majority of the minimum bids in our auctions are extremely low. In fact, most starting bids represent only between 10% and 50% of fair market value for the items. The purpose of the minimums in all AutographStore.com’s auctions is simply: 1) To limit inquiries to those bidders who are sincerely interested in a given item, and 2) To ensure that virtually all lots will be sold. We never use a reserve in any of our auctions.

Bidder Registration:

If you are not currently a registered AutographStore.com bidder, you can find out more about the registration process and register to bid online by clicking here or the “Register” button found at the top of each page.

Guide for Prospective Bidders

Placing Bids:

We strongly urge bidders to place initial bids on new auction lots early. Bids are welcomed and encouraged anytime before the closing time of the auction, but most successful bidders choose to place their initial bids several days before the closing.

Bid Notifications Via Email:

You will receive bid confirmations and outbid notifications via email on every auction lot for which you are bidding, except when you are immediately outbid upon placing your bid due to an existing higher ceiling bid. In this case, you will be notified immediately on your computer screen. It has been our experience that many internet service providers and email programs will randomly identify these emails as spam, deleting them or delaying delivery. As this is out of our control, we are unable to rectify this issue. We strongly recommend users track their bids directly on AutographStore.com, as we cannot guarantee timely delivery of notification emails through many ISPs.

Max Bids (Up To, Ceiling or Limit Bids):

Max Bids (sometimes called Up To, Ceiling or Limit Bids) are an option when bidding on autographed collectibles with AutographStore.com. When placing such a bid, you are instructing AutographStore.com to competitively bid on your behalf up to, but not over, a given limit. Such bids must be calculated in the appropriate 10% increments for items bid up to $1,000.00 to ensure other bidders are not being outbid by less than the appropriate bidding increment. AutographStore.com automatically calculates these increments for you. Please note that the Max Bid increments that will appear for an item will skip an increment to prevent a bidder from occupying two consecutive bids. For example, if a bid of $100.00 is placed, the first available Max Bid will be $121.00, skipping $110.00, as an increment must be left available for another bidder to enter his or her bid. The bidding system will automatically execute Max Bids immediately after a bid with a Max Bid has been topped. Remember, all bids must comply with the minimum bid raise rule.

Straight Bids:

Bidders may also place a Straight or Absolute Bid on autographed collectibles with AutographStore.com. A Straight Bid is defined as a bid placed at a level higher than the current next incremental bid. All straight bids must be placed in appropriate increments for the specific lots to which they apply. In the event of tie bids, the earlier received bid will take precedence. This is especially significant with reference to Straight Bids because if a Straight Bid is placed at a higher than normal incremental increase on an item on which another bidder has left a Max Bid, the Max Bid will have priority. For example, if a lot is bid at $100.00 by Bidder A with a Max Bid of $121.00, and Bidder B attempts to top the current high bid of $100.00 with a Straight Bid of $121.00, then Bidder A’s Max Bid will automatically be executed and Bidder A will be the high bidder at $121.00. Bidder B will be informed that he is not the high bider at $121.00, and that the next bidding increment is $133.00. In this way, the bidding process can accommodate bidders wishing to place Straight Bids, while not compromising the bidding strategies of Max Bidders.
