Even more so, Mr Clee, WHY havn't we ever met or seen them...Maybe George
and I need to check our basements more closely, but I serious doubt ANYONE
would of actually paid over $700.for that item, unless it was a BJ, or
someone on disguise ready to make a comeback.  And FINALLY if they are that
interested, they surely should be at the con, to see what else is available.
Just my thoughts.

Good Friends are FOREVER... And Thats a Long, LONG, Time.  So, PLEASE Stay

but I confess I don't know what. At least to appearances, there are a 
number of people out there who wanted the things really, really badly - 
or a bunch of malicious phonies. Have to analyze the bidding structure 
as far as we can and see what we can make of it.

I do wonder how many of the final bids are real. Does eBay go back down 
the list and offer to the next highest when a "successful" bidder 
reneges? Or is it close it off and start all over again?

If there are such fanatic collectors out there, why aren't Bob and I 
rolling in wealth from our Adam inventories? You can't type "Adam" into 
Google without or names coming up, and folks who had Adams have known of 
s for 20 years and more.

So who would pay $711 for this and why? And given the way eBay operates 
with "sufficient" bids, what were the intervening bids, if any?

This smells fishy enough to me that while I certainly feel we need to 
put our ambitions on ice, maybe we should keep an eye open for a new 
listing, or even contact the seller (geoff knows who it is) and tell her 
when the house of cards collapses, we'll offer $75 cash on the line in a 
private sale.

Which may all be fantasy dreaming, but that's my feelings.
