San Jose Barracuda Specialty Jersey Auction Styles and Rules

**All auctions end at the start of the 3rd period**
*If jerseys go unclaimed in the 3 days following the auction, the next highest bidder will be contacted*

SILENT AUCTION LOCATION: SECTION 116 (CONCOURSE)
BLIND AUCTION LOCATION: NORTH DOORS (CONCOURSE)
AUCTIONS ARE OPEN FROM DOORS OPEN TO END OF 2ND INTERMISSION

Silent Auction

This style of auction consists of fans writing bids of what they plan to pay for the jersey on a bid sheet. Each bid must be higher than the previously listed bid. Fans are welcome to bid more than once and they are welcome to bid on multiple jerseys.

Bidders should make their way back to the auction table behind section 116 at the end of the second intermission to be present for the close of the auction.

At the end of the auction, a Barracuda representative will then go through the auction sheets one by one to determine the final winner.

If more than one individual is “competing” for a jersey at the end of the silent auction, then a “mini” Live Auction will take place at the conclusion of the silent auction with a Barracuda representative serving as the auctioneer.  People participating in this “mini” Live Auction must have made at least one bid on paper for that particular jersey and must be present at the time that the bid sheet is pulled off the table (at the puck drop to start the 3rd period) by the Barracuda representative.  The person must also make the Barracuda representative aware of their desire to bid on the jersey when the bid sheets are pulled off the table by the Barracuda representatives.

Example: John Smith cannot take a John McCarthy jersey to a “mini” live auction if he has not already placed at least one bid on the auction sheet. If John Smith has placed a bid, he must be present when the auction closes in order for the “mini” live auction to take place and he must have informed the Barracuda representative on hand that he intends to keep bidding.

Once a winner has been determined a Barracuda representative will collect payment and in return give you a Letter of Authenticity and, if available, a tax exemption letter from the beneficiary. You will be able to take your jersey home with you following the game as long as you have your LOA as proof of purchase.

All jerseys will be signed on the number unless otherwise specified.

Blind Auction

This style of auction consists of fans writing and submitting blind bids, meaning you cannot see what amounts have already been placed. Each jersey will have its own box where fans can place their bids. Fans are welcome to bid more than once if they choose and they are welcome to bid on multiple jerseys.

Bidders should make their way back to the blind auction table by the North Doors at the end of the second intermission to be present for the close of the auction.

At the end of the auction, a Barracuda representative will then go through the submitted bid sheets in each box to determine the final winner. The fan with the highest bid will be considered the winner of the jersey.

If more there is a tie for a jersey at the end of the blind auction, then a “mini” Live Auction will take place with a Barracuda representative serving as the auctioneer.  The only people participating in this “mini” Live Auction will be those who have the high bid and they must be present at the time that the bid sheet is pulled (at the puck drop to start the 3rd period) by the Barracuda representative. 

Once a winner has been determined a Barracuda representative will collect payment and in return give you a Letter of Authenticity and, if available, a tax exemption letter from the beneficiary. You will be able to take your jersey home with you following the game as long as you have your LOA as proof of purchase.

All jerseys will be signed on the number unless otherwise specified.

eBay Auction

Following the specialty jersey night, a select number of jerseys will be posted on eBay. These online auctions will last for 1 week, generally from Sunday to Sunday.

The San Jose Barracuda will post a press release with the information on the jerseys listed during the week of the auction.

Winners of the online auction will receive their jerseys in the mail along with a Letter of Authenticity and, if available, a tax exemption letter from the beneficiary.

All persons will be held accountable for the bid amounts placed. Any fraudulent bidding will be reported.

All jerseys will be signed on the number.
