I would like to view the Magna Carta aucion.

So you're actually allowed to bid on things from home? Do they have someone just reading the bids out loud at the auction house? If so, why bother heading down there if you can bid on everything from home?


One has always been able to bid on things from home: there's always three or four auction employees taking phone bids. There are many reasons to attend an auction in person: you might want to bid on multiple items, "read" your competitors, or just soak up the vibe!
