Terms & Conditions


1. Condition of Merchandise - In publishing these auction descriptions, Showtime Auction Services has endeavored to accurately describe all of the items being auctioned. However, all property is sold "As Is - Where Is" with no guarantee as to the age, condition, size, quality, rarity, variety, importance, historical relevance or value of the items being sold. This is not an "On Approval Auction". All sales are final. However, should there be a sincere, legitimate dispute, you are asked to contact us at 951-453-2415 and discuss a resolution. We will do our best to resolve the dispute in a fair, reputable and timely manner.

2. Disputes - The Auctioneer will make absolute and final judgment as to who is the successful bidder of each and every item in the auction whether it be a live bidder, a phone bidder an absentee bidder or an Internet bidder. Any and all tie bids automatically go to the floor bidder with no exceptions. Phone, Absentee and Internet bidding is not a perfect science and there may be unforeseen human or technical errors occur. Showtime Auction Services will not be responsible for any errors that occur with Offsite Bidding. All bids are irrevocable and shall be in accordance with the conditions of the sale and be governed and interpreted by the laws of the state of Michigan. By bidding at the auction, whether present, in person, or by written bid, telephone bid or Internet bid or any other means, the buyer shall be deemed to the jurisdiction of the courts of the state of Michigan.

3. Notice - Showtime Auction Services average selling lots at a rate of about 90 per hour. Sometimes, the Internet may not be able to keep up with the pace of the auction. We recommend placing a realistic absentee bid now as insurance to avoid missing the items you want to purchase. Occasionally, the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an Internet bid and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the Internet bidding. Your bid may be rejected even if it shows you as the winning bidder after the bidding is complete. By bidding via Internet, you agree that Showtime Auctions may award the lot to another bidder as its sole discretion under the circumstances described above or any other reasonable circumstances. Since Internet bids are not shown to us until we open the lot on the floor, we treat those bids just like the floor bids. In most cases, the floor responds before the Internet bid is presented to us, due to Internet lag time, so for consistency we have made it a policy that floor bids are always considered first over tie Internet bids. Also, please note that all Showtime Auctions lots purchased through the Internet, carry a 22% buyers premium. Please make sure you read all of the Terms and Conditions before you bid. This lot is being auctioned in conjunction with a live floor auction by Showtime Auction Services.

4. Winning Notification and Billing - After the Final session of this auction, Showtime Auction Services will send an email with an invoice to the winning bidder. This process normally takes up to 2 days. All final auction results and invoice information will be supplied by Showtime Auction Services.

5. Timing - Please note that the Internet "Time Remaining" time stamp is not an accurate reflection of the hour at which the lots will be offered. Absentee bids left on the Internet are not the same as bids left with the auction house directly. They are executed from a proxy computer terminal in the room against other Internet Bidders. Other competitive bids include bidders on the telephone, bids from a live audience and absentee bids left with the auctioneer. Remember that the Internet does not provide the ability for auction houses to incorporate left bids from the Internet with those left directly with the auction house.

6. Title - Title to all items shall be passed to the successful bidder once the Auctioneer says "SOLD". The winning bidder shall assume Full Responsibility for the lot purchased once the title has passed with no exceptions.

7. Payment - All accounts are to be settled within 5 days of the completion of the auction either by PayPal, Money Order, Cashiers Check, American Express, Visa, MasterCard or Discover.
