Modders, here you go, Fostex T20RP for $70. http://www.amazon.com/Fostex-T20RPMK2-Semi-Open-Headphones-Professional/dp/B0065UEHIU/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1409198304&sr=1-1&keywords=Fostex+T20RP
nopeActually we're accused of being the comics police, but it's rare that we kind of band together to do this sort of thing, only when certain seminal issues are on the block. When I yoinked my 9.4 Amazing Fantasy 15 I had to run the gauntlet and talk with the big fish in the hobby, and that was only 1/15th what this comic went for. It just feels odd to be one of those fish, now.I'll make some car updates soon, it's just been nutty lately and I'm at Dragoncon this weekend,...
There was a lot of behind the scenes conversation going on and it didn't take long to figure out who the other people bidding were, since that's a pretty small community (comic lovers who will readily plop down >$3M for a single book). The person who won is relatively famous, deeply rooted in comic books, and is going to be loaning it out to a major museum, indefinitely. The rest of us were kinda like, "yeah, you're a good choice as owner, we won't work to block you",...
I was so right. Ha. I bid up to 2.5 but then dropped out. It's not that I don't want it, or that I think it isn't worth more (next time it sells it'll go for 2x more), but it really should be in a museum (and that's where it's going now). http://www.ebay.com/itm/311050328393?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Eh. I've been pretty busy, not much time for online stuff. I'm enjoying watching the Action #1 bidding. I think it's going to hit $3M+.
I can't say I'm liking those wheels, and the color doesn't do much for it, but I'll bet it drives as smooth as silk.
Don't be jealous, it's just plastic and sheetmetal. Besides, it's not really an "official" NART racer, mostly a 250GTE that someone wanted to modify. However, it did lead the way for the 275 NART Spider, and older modded cars, even unique ones, have a way of legitimizing themselves over time. It's sort of a gamble in terms of value, but to me it's worth it even if it doesn't appreciate at all. There's a real golden-age Ferrari vibe to it that I really like, and it's...
Last buy of the weekend, a `61 250GT NART Spider. Should probably say the 250GT NART, because there's only one that was converted that year. Another lowball that I wasn't expecting, it was ~$500k below most estimates at 900k. Anyway, I'm out of money and it's time to go home now.
Yeah, I saw it on Thursday. It needs some work mechanically, due to neglect (par for the course), but cosmetically it's almost like new. That's just a major puzzler, it could have gone for a lot more through private sale. The only thing I can figure is the seller wanted to take a loss, which does happen sometimes.I don't want a house in the south of France. EU property taxes are a nightmare, especially for non-resident aliens (the UK isn't bad). New Zealand's the only...
Oh, and, the Holy Grail is available on ebay. A little history. The existence of this particular comic has been known for decades, but the owner was very selective about who was allowed to see it and never had it graded professionally. That infused it with a certain mystique. "How does it compare to other high grade examples?" "Is it really the best in the world?" Well, it is, or rather, it's tied for best. There is another 9.0 graded Action #1. However, that one has a...
