Mike, I told my wife that I "won" it just like all the clothes she buys are "always" on sale.[;)]LOL.

BTW, Monday night is going to be very interesting. With all the auctions closing within minutes of each other it will be fast and furious.



Lol damn sure will be fast and furious...

I guess that means everyone interested will be glued to a computer screen that night. lol

Auctions are still closing as I post this... some of the names are familiar, but as for exactly who they are -- in some cases that remains a mystery, lol. BTW, I'm not bidding.... so I am not and will not be among the winning bidders...

Mike - I believe that seller was the one who had the "Miniature Amusement Park" for sale a little while back (which didn't sell). Looks like they are testing the waters and selling the models individually. Looks like more Cummons pieces to come possibly.....[:D]

Nice Score. That was a good price for that piece. I expected it to go much higher. I ended up picking up the:
MGR
Hamptons
Tilt
Spider

I expected most of the pieces to go higher than they would seeing how quickly most of the auctions were bid up quickly in the beginning. I have found that it is difficult to predict how Cummons auctions are going to go on Ebay. Sure, we expected the rides to go higher individually than as a lot, but I figured that the Gravitron that went last Thursday night would be a good indication of what prices the rides were going to go for.

Looking back at the prices, with the exception of the Tilt, the rides went for cheaper than if ordering it through Cummons. Some of them much cheaper than the current prices. The Tilt ended as a battle between two people who were set on owning the piece, thus the high price.

Going solely by the 13 pieces that met reserve, the total ended up being $4626, much higher than the lot total of $2997. Include in the price of the rides that didn't make reserve, and the total is over 5 Grand.
