The auction of, which was due to happen in New York on Thursday, has been postponed and the auctioneer is now accepting online bidders.
Maltz Auctions, which is handling the sale, posted a link to a page and the slogan “Online Bidding Available – Call for Details!”, neither of which were there last time I looked.
ProxiBid describes itself as “the World’s #1 provider of live webcast auctions”. The service webcasts and allows remote users to bid on live, in-person auctions.
The company press released its coup on Friday.
You’ll still need to put $1m into escrow in order to bid.
It appears that legal action may be the reason for the postponement.
The ProxiBid page still reflects the March 18 date.
