Howdy Steven,

Now that is some old school sniping! Way to go Steven!

I was just as nervous as everyone else!

I'll hate to see it go but my old beat-up set will keep me company!

Paul

No probs, Congrats on the win. :D I have been looking for awhile for those as well. Oh well, on to the next set. :twisted:

BTW, thanks for the offer as I was looking for AC3, but I just won a shrinked copy a few nights ago, so that hole is filled.

When I saw this, I reckoned it might go for just over the $4K mark and thought for a long time about whether I could afford it.

Congrats, you really must have wanted it bad.  That's a hell of a price.

Nice!  I didn't see that one.

Let me know if you are ever looking for a trade.  I have quite a few duplicates and I'm always looking for something interesting!

Happy bidding!

I think I have an Outdoor Geos I can part with.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Wow! I didn't bother staying up after leaving my faith in a snipe. But it turned out to be a bit short. :cry:

Anyone else here with a $3k+ snipe that didn't register? Would be interested to know the level of support for such a price.

Great win. Incredible price. Congratulations red_bus.

Damn!  I knew I forgot to put a snipe in on something... I've been trying to downgrade my copy for years.

Thanks - I live in a v. small flat in the centre of London, so I can't really keep the kind of large collection that some people here have (would that I could!).  It is already bulging out of cupboards and off shelves... so i thought, i would go for fewer better, rather than volume. This is very much the centrepiece.

Oh, and I feel pretty good about bringing something like this across the Atlantic  :D  :D

Well done, red_bus, and congrats to Paul.  I'm sure you both must be VERY happy with the outcome.

Damn, this string of second-place finishes is really starting to kill me, though.  :cry:

Well I guess this means red_bus will not be actively bidding in the new RJK auctions soon to be coming up. :P
