Gen Con 2010

Here’s some quick statistics :

Number of Items in the Auction 13,173
Number of Items Sold 9,542
Value of Items Sold $124,908.52
Number of Items Auctioned (non-Consignment Store) 5,146
Number of Items Sold from the Consignment Store 4,396
Amount Raised for Charity (Pajama Program) $11,904.67
Amount Raised for Gygax Memorial $9,128.00

We hit a record number of items in the auction this year with 13,173 items. The more numerically capable of you may be wondering how that is a record considering that last year we had 13,255 items in the auction. The answer is simple! Last year’s count included the charity items, this year’s count does not. We started a new procedure to make the charity auction a bit easier on us. We devoted a cash register to this section. All charity items had to be paid for immediately and at the end of the segment we ran the tape to get the total raised for charity – much simpler than creating an auction tag for each charity item.

We had another year where we hit a record number of items for the auction – 13,255 (11,776 was the previous record set last year). Even though the coupon in last year’s book was good for this year for a free bidder card, NO ONE used a coupon! We had 857 participants this year (down from the record of 996 last year).

This page allows you to explore the items we sold, when we sold them, and for how much.

Another Gen Con has come and gone and we’ve had a banner year. We had a record number of participants (buyers and sellers) for the auction (939). This page allows you to explore the items we sold, when we sold them, and for how much.

For the first time ever we tried to sell a CAR!! This was no ordinary car, but a SPAWN detailed car, complete with hydralics for bouncing the car around. The car is included in the item statistics even though the sale was never completed (the buyer backed out). The highest price item in the auction was a “Brown-Box D&D” that went for $2,400. A 2nd printing Brown box also went for $950.

The highest price item in the auction was an original “AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide” pre-publication manuscript that had been hand-edited by Gary Gygax. We also had a couple of brown-box D&D sets, one that sold for $1950, the other sold for a “mere” $1150
