Bid on the C56 low-grade set and the C55/C56 mixed lot, but to no avail. If anybody here won either of those lots and plans on breaking them up, lemme know. Also bid on the E94 overprint the first night but was outbid at the end, which was actually something of a relief. I've been blowing through my V145-1 break-up money as if I were my wife.
Colin - Do you have any idea who won the C56 lot? Including the juice the price is over $1000 a card. Your point earlier about it being a chance to obtain 13 high grade cards at once certainly factored into the price. I would be surprised if the new owner made a lot of money breaking the lot up - even if they can command a king's ransom for the Taylor.
Albie - I have no idea who won it. Maybe someone else on this forum does.
It was definitely a premium price to pay for that lot but there were a bunch of beauties there that I would not mind having for my set.

I don't know who won the C56 lot, but I doubt if anyone will be planning on breaking it up. I don't see much chance to make a profit. Most of the Mastro auctions go so high that you would have to hold them for a while to make a profit. The cards in the C56 lot were very high grade for that set, and I could see a collector upgrading their set, or adding to a set they were building.
