Minimum or Start Bid:
More expensive auction items may have minimum or starting bids. Saves time rather than auction bids going up .25 at a time, taking many dozens of bids to reach even fractions of value.
Reserve Bid: "Reserve" auction bids come into play after an auction ends. If "Hammer" price is less than "Reserve" bid no sale. Not very auction bidder friendly.

The T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco card has sold for upto $2.8 million in
auction. Called the "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", to me it's extreme-high
auction value can mostly be attributed to great PR and "auction fever".
It's not close to being the rarest baseball card and Honus Wagner is not
Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle. Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful &
special but because of it's size and scarcities, not many collector's ever
try to complete, which should keep auction competition way down compared
to say 1933 Goudey or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
There's a story Wagner banned his card because he was anti-tobacco but there are other stories about financial considerations.
You likkely have heard of PSA and may even know that this card was the FIRST they ever graded. But did you know dealer (B.l. .ast.o) admitted tampering with the card, perhaps trimming it down to size, before PSA graded it so highly for the auction.
A: There is a wide variety of storage supplies available to help you keep your cardsin the best condition possible.
