You left out 66k reserve on mononipple  brokeneck Conan… which had been sitting at 3.6k…

I'm not even tracking that one.

But there is a consistent theme that OA consignors don't have the stones to just let it ride.

Reserve of $240k on the TOS 50 1st Mandarin.

Reserve of $120k on the JIM 93 splash.

Reserve of $150k on the Conan 15 cover.

Why do OA consignors have no cajones?

Hmm, not sure any of these reserves will hit.  I would think if a consigner insists on a reserve, the auction house should make it a low end # to ensure it sells.  Not some pie-in-the-sky # with the hope someone out there trips it.  Though I guess in this crazy market maybe they all hit anyway.

If they don't, that could signal a slow shift downward in this overheated market.

Do these high reserves ever get met? 
I thought about doing reserves but think most people ignore those lots.

In some cases, yes

there was a high reserve for the bw avengers and the steranko cap dps last auction and both met and exceeded the reserve.

Both were actually pretty realistic reserves and the Steranko actually ended up going for less than I expected.

Missed an item I wanted today and the established pattern held fast once again.  And that pattern is-- 

If there's something I want and I remember to log in and bid live, I will be outbid by people willing to spend 3X as much and I'll have completely wasted precious time that I can never get back.

If there's something I want and I FORGET to log in and bid, I will check to see what it went for it and discover that it sold for 1/3 of what I would have bid.  

 

 

That happened to me before and is the worst. Then I found out about phone bidding where Heritage calls you a few lots before. Really is the best way to go although I still try to be at my computer just in case lol

The only one of the three that I personally think has a chance of being met is the Conan 15 cover.

But I've been woefully underestimating this market for years now, so I'm the worst predictor.

looks like you were correct

In this case, you were exactly correct.
