Almost ten years ago I attended my first auction at Freeman's Auction House in Philadelphia. The first lot I bid on was a piece of Georg Jensen silver for the Golf Foxtrot. Anxious to win and having no clue about the process - -I was scolded by the auctioneer, Jim Buckley, "Sir, you're bidding against yourself!" I got to know the Freeman's staff well through lunches and parties and it's comforting that many are still here.
