The one in the Kyle Moore sale brought $38,000 before the buyers premium and taxes! Totally different condition, of course!

Re: "town crier" - Sun Nov 22 2015 10:42 AM

dont judge it by Randy's photo... its completely gone. that graphic area is just a photo reprint that is sitting on top of the actual sign. Here's the actual sign... (when it first popped up, I almost did a buy it now thinking thats what it looked like!... thank god I looked at the other pics firtst, lol)

Something seems fishy with that price box. Look at these completed listings and make your judgement... I dont know why I cant make a link but maybe if you copy and paste this in your address bar it will work? http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=visible+price+box&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=44147&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=50

Re: "town crier" - Sun Dec 20 2015 06:58 PM

This one looks like the exact same one he sold December 14th for $275 . Maybe he had two of them and using the same picture.

Do they reproduce these with the Texaco letters on them ?

Re: "town crier" - Sun Dec 20 2015 07:07 PM

No known reproductions with the raised letters like that...buyer backed out of the deal on both pricers this seller had was what I was told. No additional (mounting) hardware comes with it.

i dont think so, it says the listing was ended because the item is sold. basically that allows ebay to charge him final value fees at what he ended it at.

on a side note, if anyone comes across one of these, i still want one and am still willing to pay a fair price

Posted by: BryceG

Re: "town crier" - Tue Aug 16 2016 12:18 PM

i dont mind the posting so much, its the back-door offers that result in the items being pulled off ebay that is frustrating.
Posted by: K W FRITH

Re: "town crier" - Tue Aug 16 2016 08:33 PM

Sorry Bryce, but I think you are wrong on this one! You think that Randys posts add to the back door offers? Generally, I have seen most of the items he posts, except for items from catagories I don't watch, and then I find the posts educational. If an exceptional item pops up that you are interested in, you have the same back door as the other ebay members, so help yourself!
With the millions of people watching ebay, I can't believe that even one of Randys posts ever added to the price, or set up a back door Johnny that wasn't already there.
I mostly watch ebay to keep up with public trends and pricing, and occasionaly I bid on something, but I am there mostly for the daily schooling.
I for one, am very happy that Randy brings an occasional rare item to the front, in that we may all enjoy watching the ensuing bidding. I even like to add an item every now and then myself!
I seriously doubt that you have ever missed out on anything because of one of Randys posts! Please keep up with the "town Crier" and I will do my best to help out at times.

I hope you take my criticism for what it is--just an opinion-- and don't take offense from it.
Posted by: BryceG

Re: "town crier" - Tue Aug 16 2016 08:41 PM

Yes, I think his posts add to backdoor offers. It's not limited to this though, posting auctions after they've ended as well. Remember what happened when someone posted that paragon lollipop sign that showed up on eBay? Yeah, lots and lots of backdoor offers that eventually came at the cost of the original buyer.

Re: "town crier" - Tue Aug 16 2016 08:45 PM

Posted by: Signs&Neons

Re: "town crier" - Thu Aug 18 2016 10:26 AM

I'm with Bryce on this one. Posting something a week or two after it has ended as an FYI is fine. The buyer should safely have his item and thus eliminate concerns about someone trying to back door and offer more than it "sold" for.

In my opinion, if you aren't interested in an item - let those who are seek it out and have fun trying to buy it. As Bryce mentioned, I doubt Randy is posting items that he is trying to buy before they end smile. It's not getting out in the truck and driving the back roads, but it is still fun to find a listing on ebay that you hope may be falling through the cracks so to speak. Not a big deal and everyone sees it differently, but the thrill is in the hunt and this is kind of like going to a pheasant farm for the lazy hunters - LOL.
Posted by: SourSam

Re: "town crier" - Fri Aug 19 2016 03:05 PM

Making "back-door deals" (that sounds dirty, heh) after an auction has ended on eBay is low in my opinion. However, up until a deal is consummated (heh) by the gavel hitting the pedestal, it is all open market principles. Meaning, if, through an alternate venue, the seller finds someone willing to pay more, then so be it. The onus is on the seller to determine in which market (either an anonymous auction site or message forum) he/she would like to participate. I have no issue with sellers ending auctions early or sellers on this website opting to ignore offers from fellow members and opting for an auction site. Again, the only time I have an issue is when there is a meeting of minds and we have one of the parties reneg.

Same Can for sure! In fact, he accepted best offer on it for $1500, and the strange part is, that I sent him pictures of several different possibles for trade, and he didn't even get back to me with a response, and didn't so much as let me know he listed it?

Sorry, just my sick sense of humor, I dont think its a wrap either, killer can. It wouldnt surprise me though with the repo situation what it is. I think there are both solder seam and crimp seam versions of this quart, but otherwise I think they are the same. Maybe a quart expert can chime in.

The dot matrix looking colors, the blue color itself seems off, the text of 'one us quart' was the first thing I noticed. Also, all tiopets I have had included periods between letters US. Also no good pictures of the seam. And not a seller with other cans. Whole thing looks funky to me, but I've been wrong before

Wow, bird cage sign is crazy cool!!! smile


Only 3rd one of these racks like mine I've ever seen in 6 years in the hobby.
This one of course looks to be repainted.
So glad I never repainted mine.
