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 6:00pm on Saturday whoever has the highest bid wins the item.
You have Cynthia, Jonathan, and Biagia to thank for administering Con on the Cob's auction. They are treasures more valuable than any of the goods they represent, but don't tell them I said that. I don't want it to go to their heads.
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 Auctionarium is in the same spot as last year. You can find it downstairs off the Atrium across from the video arcade. Don’t miss it!
