One of the most exciting aspects of a Serious Toyz auction is that most everything has low opening bids and there are never any reserve prices. Plus (as usual), hundreds of lots open at only $10, making this an auction that most everyone can participate in. There are always bargains to be had.
Mr. Miano said, “As anyone who participates in out auctions knows, we don't cut corners when putting together a sale. Every item is thoroughly researched, photographed and graded. All are treated equally, no matter what the value, because it's not how much you spend, but what you're getting. We won't allow bidding to begin until everything is correct and ready. We believe our clients' patience will be rewarded with a great sale.”

Bidders without computers can participate either by using their printed color catalog, or viewing the auction online at the public library or a friend's home, then placing bids by phone.
