While searching eBay I found an auction, one of the kind "is this price ok?":
I won't complain about the price but this auction remembers me on how I got my brochure - in pristine condition. In fact I won some auctions (mostly not eBay but a Swiss pendant to it) in a very strange way or the handling afterwards was strange. This brochure was placed about 9 days. No one than me was interested. So I was the winner and got it for about 20 US Dollars.
The same happened while bidding onto an Apple TechStep - complete with all modules. Again, no one was interested so I picked it up for about 40 Dollars. My new unused Bandai Pippin in original boxing was a bit more expensive but even this one stayed below 100 Dollars. The first of three Twentieth Anniversary Macs (nearly complete, original boxing) was very expensive, but it was never used in private range. The second one (just the machine, no add ons) was a bit cheaper but my third (display broken, now spare parts server) was sold to me for about 80 Dollars. But the biggest "BANG" I had was my NeXTcube 040. This auction was re-activated three times. I kept on watching it because I was curious what the winning bid would look like. But nothing happened. No one was bidding. So relatively short befor ending I started to bid on that NeXTcube in working order, no scratches (just remains of some autocollant on the housing), the Frog design black & white display and the original NeXT keyboard (no software but alltogether in very fine condition). Two days later I was picking up that box. Just paid 45 Dollars for it.
Have You been that lucky sometimes? Just curious...
