StampAuctionNetwork - Tour de Cure for Diabetes Sale - TDC9

Tour de Cure Auction to Benefit the American Diabetes Assoc. - May 8, 2024

We had amazing results for our 9th Auction to benefit the American Diabetes Association. Just 30 lots sold for over $4,600. We had terrific bidding on the material from Mr. Kreps the describer for many years at Michael Rogers. The Gross book sold again, this time for $775. This is the 8th time it has sold. Two more times and the final winner will get to keep the book. Unsolds are available at 30% off the current offering price -- just send me an email and I will create an invoice.

This is our 9th sale to benefit The American Diabetes Association. It contains lots donated by StampAuctionNetwork Auction firms Paradise Valley and Cherrystone, and a special consignment from the daughter of Mr. Robert ("Bob") Kreps, the describer at Michael Rogers, plus of course the autographed copy of Bill Gross's book, The "William H. Gross Collection - United States Classics, 1847–1869" -- with a "catch". You can be the eighth person to sign this classic and contribute to the ADA.

This sale features some items from the Kreps accumulation, including his personal volume two of mint and used China and a number of beautiful China isses on cover, maixum cards and souvenir sheets, French and French Africa stamps and covers, essays, proofs and deluxe proofs, Cuba Specimens, US and Mexico postal history, a Guatemala cover, Boy and Girl scouts topicals, Italy, Red Cross topicals, two unique covers from Nepal and many other unique and eclectic offerings. This may be our most interesting sale for Diabetes yet. In fact, I am going out on a ledge and will suggest that there is a lot for every collector in this sale to support the fight to cure Diabetes. Go ahead and prove me wrong!

But the best part of this sale, is that it is for The American Diabetes Tour de Cure. Payment for your lots will be a charitable contribution to the ADA. If you win lots, payment will be made directly to the ADA using my American Diabetes Tour de Cure Donation page. The sale will close on Wednesday, May 8th at 12:00 noon EST.

This year's ride is supporting the American Diabetes Association's efforts to advance research, education, advocacy, and support for those with diabetes. Click this link to see how I am doing or to give a donation.

2024 marks the 30th year of StampAuctionNetwork, but we started working for stamp auction houses much earlier than that. In fact we met Mr. Kreps in 1990, when the first stamp auction house Michael Rogers started using our stamp auction management system. He was a describer for Michael Rogers at the time. From that point on we would help to bring most of the US and many European auction houses into the digital age by automating their catalog production and building systems for managing their auctions. In order those were, Michael Rogers, Keystone, David G. Phillips, Modern Stamps, Firby, Shreves, Daugherty, Colonial, McCusker, Dale Enterprises, Wolffers, Sam Houston, Lippert's, Barons, Kelleher, Mastro, Lelands, Harmers of London, Harmers of Switzerland, Robert A. Siegel, Hart Davis Hart -- those would be the first 25, we would go on and work with Harmers USA, Manning, Matthew Bennett, and many more. So when we met Mr. Kreps' daughter in RTP in connection with my work in the Entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Research Triangle, it was a special moment to help with her dads' collection. Most of the major items have been consigned to Kelleher and Rogers in their April 23rd auction but his daughter has a connection with Diabetes and so was delighted to have some of the items placed in this sale to raise money for research to cure diabetes.
