I was just floating around the site and ran into this post. I never look at people that are bidding, even in my own auctions. i did check it out and saw that it was two guys allegedly fighting it out. But i was impressed with the final price. I have the same clock in near mint original condition that one had some condition issues I will be putting my clock in auction soon. the way I get a rough measure of desirability is how many people are watching an auction and how many have viewed it. that clock had over 1,100 views and over 200 people watching it. I have auctioned quite a few clocks and signs in my day and never saw that many people viewing a clock. I did not know what to think. I know other than mine i have only seen a couple other champion clocks like that which mine still has label and was made by neon products Lima Ohio throughout the years which makes it uncommon. I will try to check to see was it two guys fighting over the clock? And sign god for 700 did you pick that clock up for the collection. as far as iam concerned would of been a steal. but who knows really??

i absolutely agree you just never know. but 1100 views 199 watchers is a pretty good turnout for a clock or any sign. those stats were on collectors weekly website. Huh really there is no way to truly tell current market value not knowing if it was a true auction and if its being questioned by seasoned collectors that leads me in the direction of the question of if it was a true auction which if it was would really show an area of current market value. But we will find out with my clock starting at 9.99 and letting it ride.

I've also noticed that some sellers seem to get astoundingly high prices for some of there items. Take item #160840901445, that's a hard to find can in great condition, but I don't think it commands that kind of price at all. The seller is a very high volume seller though, my assumption is that some buyers just subscribe to his listings and don't search other items or sellers, creating almost like a "Barrett-Jackson" effect on prices. As they say, time is money and some poeple would rather spend the money than take the time to look for a better price.
