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.

Thanks,
Paul

Great Find!

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.

Congrats to the buyer!

Earl

sold!!!

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 hope that the seller knows that ending an eBay listing early and selling off eBay is a viloation of eBay policy. If he keeps it up or ends the wrong listing he may get suspended or kicked-off eBay.

I do NOT believe that the seller did NOT sell these cards.
They are sold!

Postcards

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.

Nice scans though.

If the seller passed on a $30000 offer for those cards in that condition and based on the photos on ebay, you should take the offer off the table and pretend it never happened. $20000 is fair. Jim.

sweet caporal-going to high end auction?

June 28 2007, 11:29 PM 

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?

No. 32 Riley Herns

June 28 2007, 11:39 PM 

Sweet Caporal, the best set in the hobby... not surprised that the auction ended early...

at $30,000 it's a steal... even in that condition...

32

June 29 2007, 9:29 AM 

the player number 32 is rilley hern.. but on the scan rilley hern is present.... it is an error the missing number is not 32 according to me.
