From what I read they did 3 auctions a yr?? Not to say there was not weekly or monthly, but every search avenue tried fails to link a bender T206 auto. This card is a big deal. Even 5-6 yrs a go it would have been somewhat high profile right.

The december Mastronet auction didn't have it either. Just a link that mentioned the auction.

I have to say that the wording in the letter is unusual. I don't think I have any other Spence certs in my collection, so may be it's consistant.
In the cert it says "Includes LOA from James Spence." Now why would James Spence put this in his own COA?
Also it lists "Certification: NM." What does this mean? Is it the sig or the card, neither of whch would be considered near-mint?
Do all Spence Certs have this same wording?

If not, you put this together with being unable to find the auction lot listed anywhere brings this card very much into suspicion.

Just my 2 cents since I have absolutely no idea how these auctions work. Is it possible the card was originally scheduled to be sold at the specified auction, but sometime between the issued certification and the auction, the owner or the auction house pulled the card off the auction and placed another item in the lot #? Just a thought.

It would still pop up under a search and reveal what lot # it was

I do not understand why JSA hasn't commented on this matter. There name is attached to this item (if it has been certified by them) and the LOA doesn't look right to me and this looks like a phantom auction.

The seller wanted a $1,000 for this, but doesn't that seem a tad low considering it would probably be the only example in signed form, he passed away in the 1950's and Rube Marquard even brings $300-400? Where did the seller get this item, anyone know?

Not to mention that I have a pretty keen memory and would have remembered this item (probably would have circled it in the catalog) as I am interested, like many, in signed T206's and the proud owner of three.

Regards,

Larry
