AUCTION RULES:

WHEN AND HOW THE AUCTION CLOSES

Beginning at 9:00pm Eastern Daylight Time (the time in New York City, U.S.A.) of the last day of the auction our system activates a fifteen minute countdown clock. Each bid received after 9:00pm will extend the entire auction closing by fifteen minutes from the time that bid is placed (see "Overtime bidding" below).  All items remain open for bidding until we receive no new bids on any items in the auction for a period of fifteen minutes.  At that point the entire auction (all lots) will close automatically and no bids will be accepted after that time.  This ensures that everyone will have the time and opportunity to rebid on any items on which they've been outbid without the fear of bid snipers.  We anticipate that the auction will run for several hours after the clock begins but cannot guarantee a definite end time. For this reason we recommend that you take advantage of the maximum bid option when placing your bids.  You can set a maximum bid amount on any lot upon which you are bidding and the bid will be placed on your behalf by the auction program, if necessary, to secure the lot for the lowest possible bid, unless another bidder tops your maximum amount.  The maximum amount you set will only be applied, as necessary, if someone else should place a bid on that lot after your bid is placed.

Before you bid: Registration

You may browse the auction without registering, however, in order to bid you must first register. You can register at GottaHaveRockandRoll.com, or contact us via telephone toll-free at 800-950-1202 or at 212-750-7900. A credit card is required for registration but will not be automatically charged if you are the successful bidder.  For information on our Privacy Policy please go to gottahaverockandroll.com and click on “Privacy Policy” at the bottom of the homepage. 

Your bid is a contract

All bids placed online with GOTTA HAVE IT!® Collectibles, GOTTAHAVEIT.COM® and Gotta Have Rock and Roll.com™ are legally binding. By registering and bidding in this auction you are entering into a legal contract. If you are the successful bidder on any lots you will be considered the buyer of the lot.

Guarantee

Under no circumstance will Gottahaverockandroll incur liability to a purchaser in excess of the purchase price actually paid.

It is the responsibility of prospective bidders to inspect the property before bidding to determine its condition, size, and to determine if it has been repaired or restored and/or to request a condition report. Please email info@gottahaverockandroll.com for a condition report.

Gottahaverockandroll guarantees the authenticity of attribution of property listed online as stated in the Terms of Guarantee. Except for the Limited Warranty contained in the terms of guarantee all property is sold “As Is”. We make no warranties, nor does the consignor, as to the merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, the correctness of the description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, provenance, exhibitions, literature or historical relevance of any property. No oral or written statements made , online listing, advertisement, bill of sale, and announcement or elsewhere made by employees (including affiliated and related companies) shall be considered a warranty. We and the Consignor make no representations and warranties, express or implied, as to whether the purchaser acquires any copyrights, including but not limited to, any reproduction rights of any property. We and the Consignor are not responsible for errors and omissions in online listings or any other supplemental material.

Terms of Guarantee:

“Attribution” is defined by Gottahaverockandroll as the creator, period, culture, source of origin, as the case may be as set forth in the Bold Type Heading of a lot in the Title of an online auction, as amended by any oral or written salesroom notices and announcements or online notices and announcements. We make no warranties to information not contained in an online lot heading or information not contained in the Bold Type Heading of any live auction material subject to the exclusions listed below.

Gottahaverockandroll warrants the “Attribution”, as defined above and subject to the exclusions listed below, of a lot for a period of one (1) year from the date of sale and only to the original purchaser on record at the auction. If it is determined to our satisfaction that the “Attribution” is incorrect, the sale will be rescinded if the lot is returned in the same condition in which it was at the time of sale. In order to satisfy Gottahaverockandroll that the “Attribution” of a lot is indeed incorrect we reserve the right to require the purchaser to obtain, at the purchaser's expense, the opinion of two experts in the field in writing, mutually acceptable to Gottahaverockandroll and the purchaser, before we agree to rescind the sale under the warranty. This warranty is not assignable and applies only to the original purchaser on record with Gottahaveockandroll. This warranty does not transfer to any subsequent owners of any purchased property (this includes without limitation, heirs, successors, beneficiaries or assigns).

We do not guarantee the inclusion of vinyl with signed albums. If vinyl is included it will state as such in the description. In addition, we do not guarantee the condition of the frame on a framed item.  We are selling the artifact that is within the frame, and therefore consider the value to be in the item itself, not the frame. All clothing is sold as is.  Clothing is stage or personally used, and as such, condition will vary.

Overtime bidding

Bids placed on any lot within fifteen minutes after the auction’s scheduled closing time will extend the closing time by 15 minutes on all the lots in the auction The auction will end when no new bids have been received on any lots in the auction for a period of 15 minutes.

Maximum bidding option

You can set a maximum bid amount on any lot upon which you are bidding and the bid will be placed on your behalf by the auction program. The maximum amount you set will only be applied as necessary  - if someone else should place a bid on the lot after your bid is placed, the system will automaticaly go to the next increment level, leaving you as the high bidder - until your maximum is reached. You can then choose to place a straight bid or another maximum bid.

Absentee bidding

If you think that you will be unavailable to place bids on the item(s) you are interested in you can place “absentee” bids by either placing a maximum bid on any item(s) you are interested in, or you can contact GOTTA HAVE IT! and arrange for a representative of the company to place a maximum bid on your behalf. If you are interested in this service place contact us toll-free at 800-950-1202 or at 212-750-7900.  You must be registered for the auction in order to place an absentee bid, which we can do on your behalf when you call. When calling please give us your user name and password and we will bid on your behalf.

Telephone bidding 

If you wish to bid via telephone please contact us toll free at 800-950-1202 or 212-750-7900. You must be registered for the auction in order to place a telephone bid, which we can do on your behalf when you call. 

The “callback” is a service we provide to those who request it so they can be aware of when they have been outbid on items they are bidding on. This is an added courtesy to the automatic email that is sent to you when you have been outbid and should not be used instead of checking your email. We will make every effort to contact every bidder who requests this service, but we cannot guarantee you will be contacted if we are inundated with requests.  You can utilize this service by contacting us at 800-950-1202 or 212-750-7900. 

Minimum bids and Bid Increments

A minimum bid is the price at which the lot will start at. Bids cannot be accepted below the minimum bid. The minimum bid is often times well below the estimate.

Bids are placed at incremental levels. The following is the bid increment table:

Lots starting below $50 are raised in $5 increments.

Lots from $50 to $100 are raised in $10 increments.

Lots from $100 to $250 are raised in $25 increments.

All lots at or above $250 are automatically raised at an increment of 10%.

Reserves

Some lots have a reserve, which is an amount that is higher than the minimum bid, but is not shown on the lot detail page with the minimum bid and the estimate.  If you enter a bid and the amount that shows on your screen after you have placed the bid appears in red that means the reserve has not been met.  A maximum bid placed on a lot with a reserve will automatically be executed on the bidder's behalf to meet whichever amount is lower, the maximum bid or the reserve.

Bidding on lots of $10,000 and over

If you are bidding on a lot that reaches $10,000 or above you will be contacted by Gotta Have Rock and Roll.comTM and asked to provide your banking information, including name of bank, bank account number and a bank contact. We do this to protect our bidders from those who may not be seriously bidding and are “upping” the bid increments. For your safety, and ours, we want to make sure that all bidders on items of $10,000 or more can cover their payment if they are the winning bidder.

Payment

Invoices will be emailed beginning the Monday after the close of auction. If the bidder has not registered with an email address the invoice will be mailed to the bidder's shipping address.  Invoices must be paid within 14 days of receiving invoice.  If payment is not received within that time period, or if the auction house is not able to contact the bidder within the time period, the credit card that the bidder registered with will be automatically charged and the lot(s) will be shipped to the shipping address that the bidder registered with.  If the bidder's credit card is not valid and if payment is not remitted then the bidder will forfeit the lot(s) they have successfully bid on, they will be banned from all future Gotta Have Rock and Roll.comTM online auctions and the matter will be turned over to our attorneys.

Payment options: We accept personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders, wire transfers and credit cards. There is an additional 3.5% charge on payments made via credit card and PayPal.
