Bid by Proxy

The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum offers proxy bidding for those unable to attend the CAA and TCAA Art Sales, Saturday, October 7, 2017 but would like to make a purchase. Each year we assist several individuals with this service.

Each person placing a bid must purchase a ballot book costing $85. The ballot book contains one ballot for each artwork. Only persons who purchase a ballot book can bid on the art. Ballot books are limited to one per person.

If you wish to bid on one piece, list that artwork and the pertinent information on the proxy form. If you decide to bid on two pieces of art, list both items on the proxy form. In this case, you must indicate whether you want both, or if you get #1 that you do not want #2 and so forth.

If you want to rank the items, for instance:

1.  Saddle Troy West $Price
2.  Hoof Pick Wilson Capron $Price

IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT IF MORE THAN ONE ARTWORK IS LISTED AND YOU ARE DRAWN ON ALL, YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PURCHASE ALL ARTWORKS UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED (in writing).

You may fax your proxy form back to Diana Fields at (405) 478-4714. A ballot book will be charged to you in order to place the bids on or before Saturday, October 7.

At 6:30 p.m. two names are selected and posted. The first person (or proxy) has 20 minutes to confirm the sale. A horn will blow to mark the end of 20 minutes. If the first person chosen has not claimed the work of art, then the second person becomes eligible to purchase the work, etc.

CAA and TCAA proxy purchasers can expect a 3% credit card fee of their total invoice. Please notify your credit card company that a large charge is authorized at that time. Bidders paying by check must ensure their check arrives by Wednesday, October 11, 2017.

BE SURE TO GIVE PHONE NUMBERS WHERE YOU CAN BE REACHED ON THE DAY OF THE SALE.

You will be notified immediately after the sale if you are successful in your bid. Please contact Diana Fields at (405) 478-2250 ext. 233 or email Dfields@nationalcowboymuseum.org if you have questions.
