I've read an interesting story in the late 90's, but the book was already 20 years old. So the story was written earlier than 1970's.

What I recall about it:

  • All starts with some kind of sorting machine similar to the one in the Profession story by Asimov.
  • It's a sci-fi story about space adventures and hyperspace travel.
  • And last thing that I remember, there was a lousy auction for the main hero, where they bought a worst possible planet.

Could it be Sargasso of Space by Andre Norton?
