I got a feeling a lot of the items will go above current market value. That said, there are a few items/variants that don't pop up all the time so values can be hard to gauge. Usually with auctions like this from Vectis and the like, with a good dollop of vintage, prices go pretty high. Auction fever, fear of missing out, Vectis premium, or something similar takes hold. Will be interesting to see the results.

Don’t get me wrong...I’m really pleased that I’ve been outbid!!!
I put them on after a few drinks late one night and looked at them the next day and thought...Sh*t, if I win all of those I’ll need to rob a bank! :lol:
There’s something about auctions that brings out the fever in people, sooo easy to bet carried away.


That's the best way to bid, mate. With some lubrication. :lol:

I will be envious of whoever steals this one away. She's a rare one for sure.

That's exactly how I go about working out a top bid. Your hammer price needs to be substantially lower than market value to come out with a fair price.

Well, I'm popping my Vectis cherry today, sitting here casually hoping I get outbid on all but one or two items so I don't have to have that conversation with the Mrs and or bank manager :lol:

One other person bidding and it could have gone for three times that.
