I normally only sell to US bidders, but I added further down that I will sell this internationally!

Speaking of reserves. Are you willing to tell us your reserve price for the auction?
Of course we could keep guessing, until someone reaches it and it dissapears from the listing, but I am certainly curious. :?:

I told myself that I wouldn't give out the reserve price, so let's just say it's not much less than this estimate.

Good enough?

What I really need to do is stop listing auctions late at night. :)
Here's another photo that is more color balanced.

Thanks for that. Hrmm... first "standard colored" shipping envelope I've seen for WBRM, in that case.
IIRC, the few other copies I've seen with the envelope had a cream-colored version.
(Hence my presumption that the color shift was in the other direction from that first photo!).

Hi Dan -

I was checking out your WB&RM auction, and saw your other auctions... Frito Pencil Toppers currently at $51?!?!? Another huge collectable market it would seem, flying well below the radar.

Any bets whether the Pencil Toppers will go for more than WB&RM?

Regards

Mike

No bets here; I'm astounded!  Ikind of figured that the 1914 and Blitzkrieg Module would outprice the pencil toppers.  Go figure.

Congrats, Aneoth. :P

Am surprised Mike <invincible> didn't come back any higher, given your bid was clearly "vulnerable".
(Would've been even worse, up against <firen>, I'm afraid).

I think it broke a hundred...... Actually shattered it.....
I got the Petal Throne too, been looking for both of them for a long time.
Now I will have to sell the wife to pay for them..... :roll:
Hope she wasn't reading that over my shoulder while I wrote this.
She is sneeky that one is.... 8)

Indeed! Think you ended up taking the place of <firen> in that $200+ equation I posted on the previous page. (And he paid $400+ on <broxula>'s WF #1, IIRC).
Mission achieved, though! ;)

Heh, heh. Spotted the EPT. :)
There's quite a bit of other "nice stuff" to go with that; some not so well known, e.g.

Well done Aneoth... For a 1st print $200 is a fair price I think. One of those auctions where both seller and buyer should be happy with the outcome.

Regards

Mike

(Looks over shoulder for wife . . . no . . . ) I'll have to list my other copy now--maybe I'll get to keep the money. 8)

Why do I invest in the stock market, I should have invested in pencil toppers:

Thanks for the congrats guys.  :D  They will be treated well and have a nice non-smoking home to rest in. 8)

Pencil Toppers.... I not only remember them, but I actually had several of those too. :twisted:  
The wife tossed them out cleaning one day.... :roll:  I should show that auction to her, show her that some of this crap (As she calls it) Reallly IS actually worth money to us nuts.... (Collectors)

Dinner plans, and I really didn't want to spend more than $200. I probably wouldn't have even snipped that high if I had access to a computer at the close. I just dropped in the proxy hoping no one would go that high even on a snipe.

Ya win some, ya lose some.

Congrats Aneoth, Also on the EPT! :D
