its my star gazer btw,
yes its not in great condition and yes, its not exactly a bargain.

A bit of a long story on how I got it, but it certainly wasn't cheap & I'm not making a killing.

Given how hard these are to find, maybe someone else wants it? if not, then I'll be happy to keep it & pay to get it redone eventually.

What is the hype with stargazer?

Low production run making it collectable ? Or is there more to it ?

robbing bar stewards. they do it because they know stuff with reserve prices don’t often sell. it’s cheaper to just have a higher start price or bin listing

If you cancel the listing would that not refund you the listing cost? I know I’ve been able to in the past and I received the listing fee back.

Phew - that Stern Hot hand 'project' on ebay made £1,500. It looked a pretty straight forward project, but I thought was a high price for a 'card theme' SS.

Btw - it's 2021 - time for a new year thread?

That getaway is just round the corner from me. Never had one either and would be a bit of fun, notwithstanding the obvious elephant in the room.

Crazy money, wonder if it will sell. I know of a genuine TAF Gold that might be popping up on eBay soon, if anyone is interested let me know and I can put you in contact before it goes to the 'bay of doom.

well worn TAF with moody mansion overlay sold for £6900.
could get much better for that kind of money although the seller was pretty honest with the description.
was mine and was open to offers.

unfortunately someone decided to 'buy it now', offer about half, then ignore the ebay request to cancel.

will be back on ebay next week lol
