No, but that does not surprise me.

check out shipping cost - I suppose the Pawn Stars were banking on a premium selling price because it was briefly on TV.

Well, there are a bunch of heavy boxes. Pretty pricey, but probably not altogether out of line.

Vintage Computer Forums seem to be down, the site says they are changing ISP Hosts, so here's a direct link to the auction:

I also noticed they have a reserve on the auction and at the current bid of $168 it still hasn't been met. I'd be willing to bet their reserve doesn't get met, but we'll see.

They probably have thier "Reserve Price" set at about $500.00.
They'll very likely not get it.

That episode was on here in MD again last night.
She sold it to them for $50.
You know damned well they are going to try and get at least 5 times that.

Re: IIgs on Pawn Stars cable show

The auction ended with a winning bid of $315, so with the shipping it's going for $10 shy of $500. Not a bad return on spending $50.
