    Bids start at 500k and increases will be in 100k increments UNTIL the bid reaches 2m. Then it will be 500k increments... These are located on ATL. I will stop the auction Saturday evening. I will be out of town until Monday evening and that is when I will be delivering. My ICQ is 668916515 if there are any questions. Thanks

    Value with roses can depend a lot on names. Although tedious, you will get the most gold possible if you take the time to list the names. Capitalized letter placement and exact spelling are important to many who collect them

    I know there would be many of us interested in the roses. All you got to do is get a list of the names, set a reserve on each and set up an auction. As long as the reserves are reasonable you will sell every rose if placed on these forums.

    Agreed. I've done a few successful rose auctions, the most recent can be seen here :

    https://stratics.com/community/threads/4gregus-whispering-rose-auction-3.330553/

    500k per has worked as a great starting point for me (and eventually they all sold)

    I'll close it Saturday evening. I'll be out of town so I won't be able to exchange them until Monday evening. Please use 500k increases from now on.

    Glad to see you turned this into an auction but i think you will lose lots of bidders with this rule set on a majority of the roses since most of these names are not high profile names.

    I was just trying to make it simple for all parties involved. I'm OK with 100k up until the bid hits 2m

    Is there a specific time this auction will end? Is there a 10minute rule?

    Yes, the 10 minute rule is the norm. It means that the highest bidder has to have the high bid for 10 full minutes to win. It is better for a seller as it allows people to fight for items and thus pay more.

    ExampleA: (Auction ends at 9pm)
    Person A bids 1m at 5pm and no one else bids
    They win

    ExampleB: (Auction ends at 9pm)
    Person A bids 1m at 5pm @ 5pm
    Person B bids 2m at 8pm @ 8:50pm and no one else bids
    Person B wins

    ExampleB: (Auction ends at 9pm)
    Person A bids 1m at 5pm @ 5pm
    Person B bids 2m at 8pm @ 8:50pm
    Person C bids 3m at 8:59pm (The auction end time is now extended 10 minutes or 9:09pm)
    Person A bids 4m at 9:06pm (The Auction end time is now extended 10 minutes or 9:16pm)
    Person B bids 5m at 9:14pm (The Auction end time is now extended 10 minutes or 9:24pm)
    No one else bids and Person B wins item at 9:24
