Is there a charge associated with placing a bid?
No. Browsing and bidding for merchandise on TampaBaySports.com is free and you will only be charged if you win an auction.
Do I need a credit card to place a bid?
Yes. To ensure fair bidding, a valid MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover credit card will be required to place a bid. It is important that your payment card information is up to date to ensure that your winning bid can be processed without delay, as the winner of the auction will be automatically charged for their winning bid plus sales tax (in the state of FL).

Do all auctions close at the exact time specified on the product page?
While the countdown clock on the product page counts down to the end time for the auction, there is the possibility that time is extended.

The auction will close once all bidding activity has stopped for a period of five (5) minutes.
What is a Reserve Price?
A reserve price is the minimum allowable amount that an item is able to be sold for. If there are no bids that meet or exceed the reserve price for an item, then there will be no winner declared for the auction.
What happens if the reserve price is not met?
If the reserve price for a jersey is not met by the end of auction period, then the jersey will go up for standard sale on TampaBaySports.com, listed at its reserve price.
