As a sure sign of the resilience and relative health of the sports collectibles market, Mile High Card Company's current Fall 2009 Premiere Auction continues to turn heads and attract aggressive bidding activity from thousands of collectors across the country as the closing date of Tuesday, October 6 rapidly approaches. With nearly 1900 high-end lots presented in an impressive 400-page print (and, for the first time, digital) catalog, simply browsing the extensive array of material can be overwhelming, what with so many cardboard treasures and select pieces of memorabilia from which to choose. As such, Mile High strongly encourages all interested bidders to do their homework and communicate all questions to the staff well in advance of the closing date of Tuesday, October 6. All bidders must place preliminary bids by Tuesday at 9:00 PM EST to qualify for the extended bidding period, during which only those bidders who have placed bids on any particular lot will be eligible to continue bidding on that lot into the night. New bidders can register for Mile High's current and future auctions at www.MileHighCardCo.com or by calling (303)840-2784.

In addition to presenting the collecting community with one of the most expansive offerings of high-grade sport and non-sport cards in recent memory, the staff at Mile High has been working industriously to bring to life an entirely redeveloped website highlighted by a new e-Catalog that not only stands to save thousands of trees but will also enable collectors from across the globe to view and admire the company's increasingly crackerjack work. From the company's classy new homepage, customers are now able to view the entire print catalog online, with the capability of placing bids directly from the online catalog. At the new website, collectors can also read about and find contact information for Mile High's growing staff of industry experts, view past auction results, read company news, explore consignment options, and find links to follow the company on both Facebook and Twitter.

In a new twist for the ever-evolving company, Mile High founder and President, Brian Drent, is pleased to announce that Mile High will be conducting its first-ever December Premium Sports Collectibles Auction, a decidedly smaller event with roughly 200-400 lots of more select and prestigious material. "We are confident that this format will allow us to bring a higher-end collectible to our customers in a smaller and quainter atmosphere around the holidays," says Drent, "all the while still allowing us to offer choice prized items in our more traditional auction catalogs throughout the year." The company is currently accepting a limited number of select items for its inaugural December Premium Sports Collectibles Auction, as well as material for its Winter 2010 event, and invites all interested consignors to explore their various options with the company before trusting their cherished items to another house.
