I sold him four signs at Peatone and he had them listed and sold on Ebay the next week. He made a good buck on them.
I think he does right!

Another possibility........assume there's 20 different Phillips 2 gallon cans known to be out there, and the bidders already have the other 19 in their collections. The value of an item sometimes depends on how it fits into a specific collection. It might be worth $40 by itself and $400 to complete a "set".

I wonder how many checked their garage to see if they had one of those to put on ebay? Usually when something brings a really good price, a lot of them turn up right away on ebay!

Well...I asked the question earlier if anybody on this site has one...no response...does that mean that out of the hundreds of collectors on this site we can't come up with one? Maybe it is kind of rare? If you got one in that condition, speak up.

The two gallon can just topped the $600 mark a couple minutes ago. The same bidder is in the lead on a matching quart at $200! item # 380329094165. I have bought from this seller before and the items were clean and as described. Too bad the bidder's ID is hidden. Everybody could dig their Phillips cans out and offer them to him. wink

I have one just like it that I bought on Ebay for about $80. It was 6 or 7 years ago, however. I really don't remember it having many bids on it. Maybe one or two others. This may be the only other one I recall seeing available since then. The condition of mine is actually a little better than that one. Two years from now I could probably list mine and it would bring $50.

That $200 quart usually brings about $35 - $45. They're pretty common.

I don't care what anybody says, that auction has fraud written all over it. "Private" feedback, and multiple bids in $20. increments. Rare or not it STINKS from here
