spara50 Posted December 10, 2008 Report Share Posted December 10, 2008 Anyone see this auction? It ended early at $1500. Berry Pink Signature A little history on this auction. Myself and Bob Lightner (another long time collector from Kansas City) went to this guys antique store in Lawrence Kansas to look at the letter and marbles maybe 2 years ago. He said (this is where is differs from his auction description) that a guy walked this into his store and sold it to him with the marbles. That's a HUGE red flag in this auction. He said he found it in a drawer of an old dresser in his description. These marbles looked torch made and it looked to me and Bob that someone had maybe found a real letter but attempted to make up the marbles to go with it. We walked away shaking our heads at the marbles but the letter was pretty cool. But $1500 cool? I don't think so. It seems like he wanted $300 for it at the time. Guess we screwed up. LOL...
