This is primarily for Bobby. Would you please update all of us on which auction companies will not allow VCP to post the results of their auctions. How has this impacted VCP's ability to provide up to date auction prices?

Memory Lane and Goodwin used to be with us and left. I honestly don't think it impacts our system at all and now people get a closer to true value with out them.

Bobby ... how can they forbid you to post their results when the results are available for the general public to see?

There is nothing stopping us from posting the results, it just takes forever because we would have to do it one by one and not be able to capture the image with it. If they don't get that being with us is an advantage because over 2000 members have create a want list and any items in their auctions that our members need will send them email with links directly back to their auction.

Do prices posted from auction houses take into effect the buyers premium?

For the integrity of the service, I couldn't be happier that those 2 auction houses no longer are included in the results.

I'd go a step further and strike their histories from VCP as well.

I agree- one of them I never included when figuring realized prices, and used their listings on vcp to see how often they would offer the same card- or how often the same card had the cert number changed before relisting it.
