The Future of Asset Class Investment Stamps On eBay
Even the staunchest enthusiast collector could be forgiven for contemplating, 'how such a tiny flimsy piece of paper can be worth so much'. There is always something about the stratospheric price a rare stamp will often easily command that one would expect the pragmatic among us compelled to articulate distinct sentiments of bewilderment. When the recent H.R. Harmer's sale of the much anticipated Blue Boy Alexandria failed to sell beyond its starting bid, one could not hope to wonder at what point should disappointment set in when a sloppy hand scissored miniscule speck of paper on an envelope can only fetch a seven figured $1.2 million dollars!
One stamp does not tell the whole story. It was the rest of the Erivan Collection sale that proved to be spectacular by virtue of the powerful trend exhibited. Rare Pony Express, Confederate Provisionals, early US Classics easily commanded outstanding multiples of their reasonable estimates, in many cases 10x or more.
How does a discussion regarding a sale by a traditional auction house relate to eBay?
At NobleSpirit, we have some considerable experience selling stamps for some of the highest prices realized (by anyone on or off eBay). We have engaged the flow of elite material to and from every direction.
The flow of material, collectors, investors and dealers between eBay and alternative venues is very closely linked. Whereas traditional mainstream stamp industry models were once the norm, it is eBay that now commands the stamp collecting community's attention. Of course, noteworthy stars shine above the rest in the fragmented world outside the eBay marketplace. However, it is eBay that consistently yields an astronomical number of stamps sold every day to an equally massive number of buyers and sellers whom visit and revisit the site many multiple times a day. More dealers of legendary repute arrive on board at eBay every day for this very reason to access those numbers. Some to diversify, or amplify, others to transition their core business onto the global eBay distribution network. It is this level of retention that is no doubt unprecedented, however more importantly the clear path to the way forward for the future. Fragmentation is too complex, consolidation as counterintuitive as it may sound, assuredly the path of least resistance.
Our July Million Dollar Auction includes some marvelous world class rarities for the astute investor:
