Default You would think...(Memory Lane)

You would think they would have the time for a back scan, not to mention the "check out our other items" link in their text description is broken. Absolutely pathetic, they should team up with 707 for scans and you'd have a match made in heaven

Default Memory Lane's performance

My one experience in consigning (rather than buying from Memory Lane) was distinctly unsatisfactory--I consigned a '54 Bowman Ted Williams in PSA 7, which I believed had 3 NrMt-Mt corners, with very good centering, and was told they would seek a bump to 7.5, since it had been purchased by me at a Rosement show before PSA ever even adopted the procedure. It was obviously that they never did so, and the description of the card in their catologue might be described as meager at best. Cost me $500 plus, I believe, leaving them not very high on my list of autioneers.

Please feel free to comment, especially J.P Cohen, if he is a member!

If they used the phrase "BID TO OWN!", or something to that affect, then you more than got your moneys worth!

J.P is not a member. He could be if he wants to though. He doesn't care for our quaint little community too much. Even Marshall Fogel couldn't be his point man on here and make it all better. Personally, he's never done anything wrong to me.

Yes, but then again, you're not a widow or an orphan looking to invest!

Speaking of Marshall, how's his Collector's Association thingamajig working out? I know he's more than half-way through his one year presidency of the organization or something like that.

You would definitely be in the minority. In order to be in the minority you would have to be someone who avoids his auctions. You could also not be one of the people who contributed to the 24 million dollar pool of funds he participated in raising and keeping via his fraudulent charitable telemarketing scheme in which he was raising money to help police officers, fire fighters, vets and sick children.

My understanding, though I could be mistaking a bit, was that they had the first meeting of around 25 hand selected hobby folks at the last National (I wasn't included, darn the luck) and Marshall spoke about the Association to be formed. It was truly going to clean up the hobby!! I think they were supposed to come up with around 140k to start the thing. I believe they only fell about 140k short. Also, those hand selected folks were supposed to spread the word (it was spread all over me) and then bring every one back for the second meeting. After rounding ALL interested parties up, and regrouping, they had less than they started with. I sort of think that is how it ended up, with a thud.....
