Auction 81

Time now for the yearly Baltimore auction. Held on Oct 27th 2005, This yearly event gets me out of the house at 3 in the morning and returns my there 24 hours later. Half of this time is nothing more then driving, but this show has always proven to be one of the better ones in this area.
This years show was handled a bit differently then all other previous shows held by this group.
This year they added a "buy it now" part of the show, where everything in a separate back room had direct buy prices on them. The equipment tended to be the better items, ether new or refurbished. Around 2pm, the auction shifted from the regular auction area, to the buy it now area and all items there were sold the same as the regular auction. I did not take any down of the prices in this area. It was my feelings that most of theses item would be bough back by the original sellers. Many of the pieces in the buy it now area came from distributors, like Benson, who were not about to take a loss on brand new equipment. There were some confirmed sales in that room, but sorry, the boys need to go out for lunch too. The down time also allowed us to discover an open gumball machine of rubber super balls. We spent a good hour whaling them at each other in an attempt to whack someone in the balls or take out an eye… Great fun!
When auctioning was going on in the main room, it was handled like every other year. The room is split in two and 2 auctioneers hold to auctions. Jeff Kinder took one side and I took the other, giving the best price coverage available. Drop by the Dragon Lair Project and tell Jeff thanks for the help!
In all a good show, but since I started this in 97, there has been a rapid decrease in the "classics".
No longer are their rows of Ms. Pacs and the majority of the few classics the show up are often an poor shape or broken. A really nice Sinistar was there, but broken, a good (but broken) Mad Planets made an appearance as well. I myself have been looking for a Star Castle, but non at this show. Looks like the 80s classics are ending up in basements to never return. :-(
