Fred's 2024 Pre-Order Auction w Extras!(FUNDED AND CLOSED! Thank you!) 8 months 1 week ago #1

Greetings all! Welcome to Fred’s annual pre-order $8K auction!

The auction will end either when $8,000 $7,500 (effective 10/16)is funded or fails to find by Noon EST 11/1/2023. I may add additional add-ons to speed it up depending on how quickly it goes.

There are some nice add-ons included to help fund this auction and to off-set items I’m claiming.

I will be including add-ons of: Greater Charm Bracelets, Greater Bead of Whispers, Ring of the 5th Circle (2), Ring of the 4th Circle (2), Amulet of Treasure Finding, FoP Phoenix (2023 printing), Arcane Charm, Lenses of Flawsight, Ioun Stone Kyanite Cube, and a Ring of Havok. I used Trent and Kirk’s sites for value on the add-ons (whichever was lower). They have an estimated value of $1,890. I will also be supplementing the trade goods with extras from my own collection for another $1,000 in additional value (using Marc D’s analysis of trade good values from the most recent 5 auctions.)

I will also be auctioning off 4 of the random URs differently than how it has been done before. Out of the 8 or 9 random URs, I’ll let the high bidder for the randoms pick their choice out of the 8 or 9 randoms then the 2nd highest bidder selects on through the 4th person. The thought being at least half of the URs should be highly desirable, but it is up to chance what those will be.

I am claiming the Path token, 4 of the rings, and the patron code. Using Marc D's analysis of the value of these for the most recent 5 auctions (thank you again – a great resource), that works out to $1716 in value. I am offsetting this by adding $2890 in additional items in the auction plus 4 of the URs.

How bidding works:
Bids should be sent to me via PM
They are done “ebay style” where your max bid is recorded by me but the actual bid is the lowest of the winning bids (ie an item has two bidders, one bids $20 and one bids $25, would result in that item having a bid of $21 winning from the individual with a $25 max bid.) In cases where you bid on multiples of the same item (such as with trade goods) – your lowest winning bid on each item is assigned (ie you bid on 10 Mystic silk and win for $1.50 on 5 and $1.25 on the other 5 if you had to beat someone else’s bid of $1.25 on only 5 of the 10.)
Bid increments on items less than $10: $0.25
Bids on $10-$99: $1 increment
$100+: $5 increments (yes – a bid can be $100, the $5 bit doesn’t apply until numbers exceed $100.)
Once your bid is received, I will send you a PM confirming it with your themed moniker and what you items you have bid upon.

The monikers this year will be Kingkiller Chronicle (Rothfuss) characters!

Other rules:
If multiple bidders bid the same amount, the earliest bids win.
This auction will end as soon as $8K is hit or Noon EST 11/1/2023, whichever comes first.

Payment is required through PayPal via friends and family. All winning bids will have 72 hours after the close of auction to provide payment and select PYPs. If someone doesn’t respond in the 72 hours, I reserve the right to move to the next highest bidder or buy the item myself at their bid amount.
Shipping (domestic): (USPS Priority Mail)
1-50 Tokens = $10
More than 50 Tokens = actual cost (but will be USPS priority boxes so shouldn’t exceed $20 unless someone wins enough tokens to fill multiple large priority boxes.
Winners: I will assume you want your trade goods in 10x’s where possible. Please let me know if that is not the case when you are informed of your winnings.

Fred's 2024 Pre-Order Auction w Extras - PYPs under $60 still!(74.1% of goal!) 8 months 6 days ago #10

Great progress towards goal overnight! We hit 74.1% to goal! (but see below!)

Because I want to give other people an opportunity to run auctions that are waiting (either in queue - kudos to them) or because they see a large number of recent auctions slowing interest, I'm going to reduce the auction goal from $8,000 to $7,500. This, alone, moves us from 74.1% of goal to 79.0% of goal. I'm making that change effective today. We are at $5,928 of a $7,500 goal! Only about $2,500 left to hit goal!

Where we are below market pricing:
PYP's - current winning bids are $50 or $51. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $75.
Wish Ring - Current winning bid is $126. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $145.
Treasure chips - 10 3x chips winning bid is currently $30-$31. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $53.
Amulet of Treasure Finding - Current high bid is $276. This normally runs $350-$400 in the stores.
2023 URs (FoP Phoenix, Arcane Charm, Lenses of Flawsight, and Kyanite Cube) Are going for $21 - less than half store averages and $50 below PYP pricing.
Greater Bead of Whispers high bid is only $51. The current lowest store price is $195.
Gold - 5K bars current winning bids are $31. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $44.
Gold - 25K bars current winning bids are $200-$205. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 was $220.
Aragonite - Current winning bids are $3.25 each. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $5.
Elvish Bismuth - Current winning bids are $3.25 each. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $5.
Minotaur Hide - Current winning bids are $21. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $2.80.
Oil of Enchantment - Current winning bids are $3.25 each. The lowest from any recent auction for 2024 orders was $5.

Fred's 2024 Pre-Order Auction w Extras!(FUNDED AND CLOSED! Thank you!) 8 months 6 days ago #12

I just got in and see several bids I need to enter. With those, I’m 100% certain we will have funded. As of 1140MST the auction is closed and no new bids will be accepted.

I will post the final results today and message the winners about what they won along with payment information.

Like many of you, I am headed to Gamehole tomorrow. I’d like to get in all the payments by this weekend. Equally important will be knowing which PYPs you are picking. One of you won quite a few - I’ll need that list in pretty short order.

For people who will be at GHC, I can hand deliver any of the add-ons (and likely quite a bit of trade goods as well.)

Thank you everyone!
