Can Sell? Selling is limited to those with a current WBC badge.
Seller Registration Sheet: Word or PDF.
You Sell? Due to the specialized nature of WBC as a boardgamers
conference, Lots will be limited to boardgames, non-collectible card
games, and accessories pertaining to same.
Can You Sell? Sellers may submit as many items as they please.
However, due to the limited time available, sales will be restricted
to the first 550 Lots submitted and accepted. To avoid the disappointment
of bringing your items to WBC only to be turned away when the limit
is reached, we suggest you register your Lots in advance to guarantee
they will not be excluded due to the sales limit. The total number
of Lots registered and a brief description of each will be updated
weekly on this site.
Fee: There is a non-refundable registration fee of $1 per Lot which
must be paid before being accepted either for auction or registration.
To register in advance, send a check covering the Registration Fee
for all Lots you will submit plus a list of the items therein, minimum
bid accepted, and a one-word description of the condition (as defined
on the Lot Form) to BPA, 1541 Redfield Rd, Bel Air, MD 21015. Paypal
payments are subject to a 10% handling fee. All Advance Registrations
must be received no later than July 22 or whenever the maximimum
is reached, whichever occurs first.
NOTE: When pre-registering items for the Auction, do
NOT send the
completed Auction Item Sheets with your check. Keep
the Auction item
Sheets with your Items. Send only a list of the items
description to pre-register them. You will receive
your badge number by
return email with confirmation of your registration to
Auction item Sheets for eventual submission with the
actual items in
Item Sheet (Word or PDF) must
accompany each item or group of items to be sold. NOTE: The Auction Item Sheet should be printed as is. Please do not change the size when printing the sheets. You may combine as
many items into a single Lot as you like. Any item or group of items
without an Auction Item Sheet (Word or PDF) will
not be accepted. Item descriptions must be accurate. Any
Lot submitted with a misleading description will subject that Lot, plus
all others of that particular seller, to rejection. Tape the Auction
Item Sheet (Word or PDF)
to your item with Painters tape (available at auction registration in
the Lancaster Showroom) to avoid damaging it. Auction Item Sheets
should be completed before arrival—complete with the Seller’s
Badge Number, which will be acknowledged by confirming e-mail. If you
do not know your Badge Number, contact the Convention
Director. (Click here for a list of definitions for
use on the Auction Item Sheet.) All
Lots must be submitted in person to the Auction desk in Lancaster Showroom
of the Lancaster Host between the hours of 8 and 10 p.m. on Mon., Aug. 4, or 8 a.m. and Noon on Tues., Aug. 5. Mailed or shipped
items will NOT be accepted.
Bids: Low value items should be sold as a group in one Lot—both
to minimize your fee and to save time—or committed to the Auction Store.
While you may set a minimum bid for your Lot, the staff reserves the
right to reject any Lot for any reason—including what they consider
to be unrealistic Minimums. Ask our knowledgable Auction staff for
suggestions as to what constitutes a reasonable Minimum for any Lot
they reject. Any Lot received without a Minimum Bid will be offered
at $1.00 Minimum Bid.
Sellers are responsible for collecting their proceeds and unsold items
promptly. Sellers will receive 85% of the selling price, rounding the
amount to the nearest dime, upon providing a current WBC badge matching
the Seller’s ID number. Payouts will be available at the convention registration
desk by noon on Thursday and will remain available during registration
hours throughout the convention. Amounts unclaimed by 12 PM Sunday are
forfeit to the BPA.

best of our ability and claimed only at the convenience of the convention
