should sell for $15000 to $20000. started this post earlier but changed my mind on posting it as some members did not want it posted so i changed my post to OOPS. everyone knows about this set now!!! LOL good luck on winning this set, going for large dollars.
Thanks for the input. I was NOT going to bid on as I was just interested in the auction. It looks like the seller got a better offer and pulled the listing as there was 6 days left and he stopped the auction.
This really is a great story. I hadn't ever seen one of these until I saw one posted on this Forum a while back, and everyone said that they were some of the rarest cards in all of hockey. Now a high grade lot just appears!
I always dream of something like this happening to me! There are so many cards out there that people say just can't be found, that it's great when an unbelievable lot like this shows up.
interesting to know what he got for the set and from what buyer? i think a big dealer made him an offer he could not refuse. michel-the owner of the set told me he was using the money to school his kids through college or university. at least money will be well used. he will not tell me who bought the set or how much he sold it for. oh well!!! it is a shame that most of the good stuff on ebay ends this way, would have been exciting to see it run till the end!!!
I have to agree with Paul on this one. From what I read of the story, the seller didn't realize that these cards were valuable and was carrying them around in a paper bag! He was shocked when he was offered $2000, then $4000. He claimed that he knew nothing about the history of hockey, so these cards didn't seem to mean much to him except that they were left to him by his grandfather.
Once he realized that they were extremely valuable, I would expect that he would want the money. I don't see him becoming interested in 100 year old hockey players all of a sudden. I figure that someone offered him a chunk of money and he ended the auction. Too bad for the people who wanted to bid on the auction, but this seller isn't a collector so money was his only motivation with these cards.
hey oh wake up gang. i have talked with the owner of the postcard tonight on the phone and i have offered 20 000 and after i have offered 30 000 $$$$ for it and he not want to accept my offert..... the owner have decided to keep the postcard.
the guy want definitly keep it. now he said how much is the value of it.
it is what i see when i have up my offert to 30 k . I have see at this moment this guy realy not want to sold it . according to me this guy have wanted to test the market for see the value of his postcard.. it is my opinion.
michel will probably put that set on mastro in the near future to get his top dollar. it would not surprise me if i see this same set come up in the near future on a high end auction like mastro etc.... i will keep my eye on this set,very rare indeed. by the way guys - who was that player #32 that was missing from this set?
