Yeah, but the seller would've been well advised to have waited until the first auction finished before they posted their copy.

I'm fairly sure that most people who were thinking about buying the first one have already seen the scans for the second copy.
Know I have, but could still do with more...

oh, and I'm very surprised no-one pushed the second ST1 over the £500 just before the first one finished, to check the reserve...

I'm expecting it's either £500 or £600, but if it's £1,000, Frank's (failed) bid will have looked like a smart attempt, after all.
(For those who value the module so highly, of course!).

True.  I reckon this one will reach £850/$1500.  And not from any bids of my own.

Has anyone asked the seller to post better scans yet?  OK, anyone that doesn't have a hand to reveal!  :wink:

Mmmmm! Looks minty, shiny staples.  I think that I might have a change of heart when I said "And not from any bids of my own."

Oh, and had I actually won over the 0 bidder, I'd have gotten his contact info. If he was a fraud, I would have told the seller to keep his module.


Just as a matter of interest - I thought you could only pull contact details for someone that you've either won an auction from, or has won one of your own auctions?

Is it possible to pull details for any ebay user, in any situation other than the two above?

Regards

Mike

I think you have become obsessed with this:-)

Remember you said the same about the invincible one?  Look what happened there, he turned out to be one of the better collectors.

*nods to the uninvincible one*

I wonder given the high prices whether we will see more rares comming out of the woodwork?  (hope so)  If anyone wants to sell a Fazzlewood please let me know.

The only way I'll part with my Fazzle is over my cooling corpse, surrounded by 7.62 MM. casings that I spent defending it.
Ah, who am I kidding. I'm a whore. I have a price for everything.

Frank, you never fail to add some humour to my day!  Thank you! :-)

I do indeed! I'd probably retire to a place down the street from you. You Aussies may have started out as a penal colony, but you turned out really well. I will keep you in mind for Fazzle.
So, any guesses on who will win the next ST1?

Hate to dissapoint you but I started my life out north of you ...

As for who will win.  Hmm it would appear than most people did not bid for the 1st ST1.  So it leaves the field completely open. I would really like to say Harami ... However the people with deep pockets tend to be very quiet.

We won't be bidding as we are probably going to sell our collection.

Good luck to those who are bidding.

You're still bidding on other items, Burnie (just noticed on that auction with myself and Mike <improvstone>).
Can't turn down a shot at some of the "old time" stuff?

We don't have any Alarums in our collection. Our bid was very low, just figured if we could pick them up cheap so we could look at the content before reslling.
