Vintage ebaY auction wins!
« on: June 15, 2003, 12:23 AM »
Hello, tell me what you think.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2178173815&category=33820&rd=1

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3134349082&category=2475&rd=1

Are these repo microphones and flute.  Other's I have seen have silver mic's and a black flute, this auction has the opposite?

Thanks,


Matt

Nice score on the Jabba+  I was contemplating that one as well.  Glad you got it. :)

Well here we go.
Auction #1.
Nice price on the comic. I have seen it go higher.

Auction #2.  
Jabba's Throne: Jabba'a arm's look discolored & look like one rope is missing of the front & its also hard to tell if Jabba's pipe is there.
Y-Wing Fighter: The top gun is missing but the rest looks intact & have the bomb. A plus there.
Speeder Bike: Looks good.
Rebo Band:  :o Awesome score. Its complete & around the price of what I paid for my band when I started.
As for the instruments, I looked at my set & they have the 2 black mics & the silver flute. There are 2 colors to the instruments. Read about them here:
Rebo Band Set

The parts missing can be found on eBay. All you have to to is search for them till they show up.
All in all, I will say well done. Heck of alot cheaper than I paid for mine.  ;)

Also, won an auction for issues 1-3 (35 cent cover) sealed in a bag from 1977.  These are referred to as the Whittman reprints.  All 3 for $12.50 shipped!  

Some say they are harder to find then to original 30 cent cover issue.

By the way I received the 30 cent cover in wonderful condition!  Looks like it just came off the racks.  Take care all.

Definitely a good score!

I think on the speeder bike there are suppsed to be flaps on the back.

Not sure if they are there on yours, but over all it looks in good shape, as you often see those broken.

Nice capture Brent, compete figs too.  As far as being cheap, your perspective is the right one.  Patience will pay off and with so much more important things then Star
Wars collection, being frugal is wise.

I changed the thread name to just wins / so we can keep each other posted on our ongoing quest to collect vintage figures.

A couple more wins:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MfcISAPICommand=ViewItem&item=3134880878

I'm nervous about this once since the guy has no feedback and e-mail has
come back to me undeliverable.  In my request for total I asked him how much more to insure and delivery confirmation.  Any other tips on how I can safeguard myself since he only accepts money order or cashiers check?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2179037422&category=3981&rd=1

Absolutely thrilled about this!  This is a hard find.


Tell me what you think,

I'm a little leary of that seller with a zero feedback myself. Though we all have had to start somewhere, IMO I would be nervous. You can use this page to get information from eBay on the seller. Read the Privacy Policy first before you use it. They will give you information on the seller just incase.
Find Members

He has had that auction up before when I checked his sellers history.
Sellers History

As for being safe with money order & cashiers cheques, I'm unsure what to do. They can be traced to see if they are cashed but if you get ripped of, then the process of fraud may that awhile.
Heres the link to the Internet Fraud Complaint Centre:
IFCC


The comic looks like a good price.  :)

Hey Dale, thanks for the feedback.  Well I checked that page and it looks like he relisted the all three item's since the reserve was not met.

I sent him quesitons in the request total.  So we'll see.  If  I don't hear from him I won't sent the money.  I just hope he does not get the nerve to leave negative feedback.  I have sent him three undeliverable e-mails to date.

Take care.
