auction will open for
bidding for starting Saturday, April 23rd at 2:00 PM Eastern Standard
Time (New York City).
*REGISTRATION: If you
are not already REGISTERED,
please sign up early (to get that part of the
administration out of the way). Once you have completed
the registration you will receive a password via email
in order for you to "log in" for the first time. If you
do not receive your Registration Confirmation Email,
first check your "Junk or Spam Folder" and if you still
didn't receive it, please contact us and one of our
staff members will be happy to assist you. Now, once you
have logged in you can change your password to something
that you will better remember by simply going to the "My

and familiarize yourself with the AUCTION RULES
section, which can be found under the 'Resources' tab on
our site. This section will help you understand all of
the "mechanics" of how
our auctions operate, i.e. buyers premium, payment
options and shipping.
*VIEWING LOTS: You
can locate and view auction items by utilizing the CATEGORIES listed
directly in the upper
left frame of this page. Items can be accessed
and viewed by selecting either ARTISTS, TYPE OF ITEM OR
DECADE. There may be items that are
listed in several categories, so we recommend utilizing
the AUCTION SEARCH
function which can be found in the right frame of each
auction page. The AUCTION
function will help you find pieces
related to a specific band or musician or finding a lot
by the lot number.

tracking activity in your MY VIP section. Once you have
successfully logged in with your VIP Credentials

identified items to track you can click on the MY VIP
laminate to view updates on those lots of interest.

watching or even bidding on.
- The MY VIP page updates automatically every few
seconds, so just sit back and keep an eye on
the numbers. And "yes"..it's
than you clicking the refresh button
in your browser.
- When you are outbid on an
item, a sound will
alert you and the item will be highlighted for a short
amount of time.
- The MY VIP section allows you to track items, bid on
items you are tracking, increase your bids
or even increase
your max bids and will automatically update
all of your personal auction activity.

items you want to track and bid, the rest is easy and
best of all you won't have to waste time digging
through the site just to place a bid...just
back and enjoy the ride!

advantage of placing your maximum bids or changing
your existing maximum bid on the items you are
interested in and keep an eye on those items as the
auction begins to close as it will NOT CLOSE
IMMEDIATELY at 2:00 pm EST. For more
information and assistance on how our "Auction End"
process works, please see our Auction Rules located in the "Resources" tab on
our site. Alternatively, give us a call and one of our

close process works.
AUCTION CLOSES: All winning bidders will

they won when the auction officially closes. Final
invoices (including shipping costs) will be sent out
within 72 hours or by close of business Thursday. For items
that require special shipping services, a member of the
Backstage Auctions crew will contact you directly to
make special arrangements.
ITEMS: In the event that an item does not sell
during the auction, our consignors may elect to place
their items in the online store for direct purchase. The
price of the auction lot will be adjusted to reflect an
appropriate "buy it now" price and in most cases this
means that the price will
higher than the opening bid price. There is
no guarantee that any or all unsold item(s) will be made
available after the auction ends.
we aim to be as precise and complete as possible with
our descriptions. That said, human error is always a
possibility and we encourage you to ask questions and
make inquiries on any piece that you are interested in
