Buying

There are Four Ways to Bid:

  • In Person at our Gallery
  • Bid by Phone
  • Place an Absentee Bid
  • Bid Online

1) To Bid in Person

Please come to our gallery located at 40 West 25th Street Suite #204, New York, NY 10010. On the day of the auction when you arrive, please go to the front desk to register for a bidder number. You will need to show a valid Driver's License and a MasterCard or Visa credit card. If you do not wish to use a credit card, you must provide a bank letter of credit indicating your account number and the level of credit available. This letter must be provided prior to the auction day to verify the information with your bank. You may also pay by cash or wire transfer.

2) To Bid by Phone

Please complete and sign a copy of our Telephone Bid Form. These completed forms must be received by the close of business on the evening immediately prior to the day of the auction. No telephone reservations are accepted unless this is signed and received. We require a MasterCard or Visa credit card number to reserve a telephone, but you are not required to pay for purchases by credit card. Lot numbers and a short description of the item(s) should also be indicated on the form. During the auction, a member of our staff will call you about 3 minutes before the item comes up, and help you bid live at the auction. We sell an item about every 45 seconds and you must be prepared to bid quickly. We sell in the numerical order indicated in the catalog and sell about 60 to 90 lots per hour.

3) To Place an Absentee Bid

Please print and complete our Absentee Bid Form indicating your maximum bid on each lot, excluding the buyer's premium. Return this via Fax (212.352.8801) or Postal Mail to; Eddie’s Auction, 40 West 25th Street Suite #204, New York, NY 10010. Please allow 3-6 working days for it to reach us. Be sure to sign the form on the bottom. We require a MasterCard or Visa credit card number to secure your Absentee Bid. Absentee Bids left with us are executed confidentially and competitively. If your maximum bid is $500, for example, and the bidding stops at $200, the lower price is the selling price to you. However, you must be prepared to go as high as your maximum bid. We never disclose to anyone any information about Absentee Bids or bidders.
