Auctions differ in many ways. At the Scottsdale auctions, catalog sales (RM Sotheby’s, Bonhams and Gooding & Company) are quite distinct from the auctions that Barrett-Jackson or Russo and Steele host. Catalog sales have fewer cars, but on average their consignments are more significant and valuable. They also serve a different type of collector for the most part, and an accordingly different part of the market.
