Hey Peeps,

Hope y'er all well.

One of my players brought one of these to today's game, asking me what I thought it was worth. I have no idea and thought I'd solicit the opinions of acaeum members.

The figure is still in its packaging. The cardboard is creased but the only other real blemish beyond is that some of the print has come away with the removal of a price sticker.

All views appreciated. Cheers!

Is it a matchbox car, or a literal match box (with matches to light fires), or something else entirely???

Or is it a mini box of matches?

The mini I was shown was a 2.5 inch Skyla from this series.



It would appear that though they were manufactured by LJN, in England they were marketed under the Matchbox brand. Take a look at this eBay auction to get an idea of the packaging.



The player tells me he has three more of these, each in its original packaging, but I'm still waiting to hear which ones they are.



Thanks for the interest.

Judging by the auction, I'd say it's worth less than $10.
