Please Note:

Everything in our auctions is SOLD AS IS, RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, NO EXCEPTIONS! The Lodge is not responsible for third party shipping damage. All of our descriptions are written as accurately as possible, with all sizes approximate, and all apparent faults noted. Because of the volume of material we place in each of our sales, some descriptions may contain erroneous information or minor faults could be missed. It would be in your best interest as a serious buyer, for yourself or a reliable representative come to our Gallery to preview the items in person, or at the very least, call us during preview hours so one of our representatives can look at the item while you ask specific questions.

You, the customers, are the experts. While our staff has a wide range of knowledge in the collectibles and memorabilia field, we cannot possibly have expertise in every specific category of collectible. PLEASE BE COMFORTABLE WITH THE ITEMS YOU ARE BIDDING ON, IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS, WE PREFER THAT YOU DO NOT BID! This is not because we don't value your business, but more the fact that WE WANT HAPPY CUSTOMERS!

Any claims as to authenticity must be brought to the Auctioneer’s attention within two weeks of auction closing. Lots may be withdrawn by auctioneer prior to sale without notice.

Estimates printed in our catalog reflect what we feel is a fair market value of said item(s). Terms for payment may be made for large purchases prior to bidding, kindly inquire for details.

Please note group lots should be expected to be in mixed condition with items ranging from low grade to higher quality condition. Please ask for specific condition information before placing bids. Grading and conditions are subjective and should only be used as a basic guide to aid in your bidding.
