All of the Siegel lots yesterday went for lala money. Apparently common sense and money are disconnected. Every lot that I was after went for far beyond catalog which is OK depending upon the stamp but they also went far, far above SMQ which is plain silliness. It is called throwing money away. A well known dealer I spoke with yesterday had bids in on over 90 lots and won 2. I have purchased quite a few stamps on Hipstamp that were sold at Siegel within the past five years and most of them I got for far less than the Siegel bidders paid. I am not looking for bargains at Siegel and I place strong bids but you cannot compete against those that truly could care less about money and there are lots of those folks out there judging by the results. The funniest thing is that I will bid on a stamp at Siegel, be blown out of the water, go to Century, find a better example of the same stamp for much less money (read true retail value), buy it and still go after more Siegel lots in their next auction. I am nuts!
