How do I go about...
How do I go about getting the signatures sold? It appears to me that it would be hard to do them individually. Like selling a house - can you list the item(s) with more than one site? I am totally new to this - would I be better trying to get in touch with a local auction house?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Rose,

Did you contact the two auction houses, Heritage and Profiles in History?

I couldn't find any information on how to contact them about selling my signatures. I was only able to see how to contact them to buy.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I paid the $34.00 the other day but never got to speak with you. Is that fee still good?

Hi,

I can help you with that.

Here is the link for you to consigning to Heritage Auctions:

https://www.ha.com/consign-your-collectibles.s?ic12=WhyConsign-WhyHeritage-ConsignButton-071515

And here is the link for selling through Profiles in History:

https://profilesinhistory.com/consign/consignment-forms/

If the autographs are on two sides of one page and not easily seperated, then it is best to sell the book as a complete whole.

The phone call request was cancelled.

Thank you so very much. All the signatures are on single pages except for two. Do I have to get the signatures appraised before I contact those sites for consignment? Again many thanks.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Thanks for your help. I have been able to find a dealer near me that will appraise the signature.

Hi,

You are very welcome and that is great that you found someone local. I do still recommend contacting the 2 auction houses. As well, I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.
