Auction? There’s an Auction at Con on the Cob?
There certainly is. Do you have any games, toys, books, videos, t-shirts, little brothers, comics, or any other geeky sort of stuff of which you’d like to divest yourself in exchange for cold hard cash? If so, bring it to Con on the Cob and see what can be seen. Looking for some rare and hard-to-find relic of ancient nerdliness? Who knows, maybe you’ll find it.
This is a silent auction, which means all of the items will be laid out on tables and bidders will have the chance to outbid each other by writing their names and bids on the attached bid sheets. When the auction ends at 8:30pm on Saturday whoever has the highest bid wins the item.
Item drop-off occurs according to the schedule below. All you have to do is bring your jazz to the CotC Auctionarium (near the hotel registration desk) at the listed times, fill out a little bit of paperwork (you can even fill it out ahead of time and turn it in at the show if you want; just click that bid sheet thumbnail at the bottom of this page), and you’ll be all set. There is no fee to submit items to the auction, but Con on the Cob retains 15% of all sales to cover administrative costs, shelving, and whatnot.
Bidding will be happening throughout the weekend, whenever the Auctionarium is open. You’ll be able to pick up and pay for your goodies after noon on Sunday.
The 2017 Con on the Cob Auction hosted over 500 items! It got so big we had to stop accepting stuff. This year the Auctionarium in the same spot as last year. You can find it downstairs off the atrium across from the video arcade. Don’t miss it!
