Looks like it didn’t sell at all as nobody bid… Could you maybe PM the seller, and agree on a Buy It Now price? I’d be happy to chip in more if we knew exactly how much this would cost us.

Yes, I’ve reached out to him, and have not yet heard back. I’ll post with any further info.

Update: I’ve heard back from the seller, who says he’s unable to sell outside of an auction. It hasn’t been relisted yet, but he says the new listing will start at $299. That still leaves us about $100 short for that price plus shipping.

Just covered the shipping cost! Not sure how much is left in order to bid. Did anyone else bid the last time this was listed?

Schorman, were you the one who set the starting bid for the new auction?

Thank you!

No problem! would love to get preview videos when this thing gets scanned! I too am trying to have at least an accurate Theatrical copy of each film. How far are we on our goal?

Assuming the no one else bids, I need about $60. 😃

If we absolutely need it, maybe I could gather $60 by Saturday night, but I’d rather someone else chip in, since I’ve about covered that much already in Shipping.

Chipped in again. We now definitely have enough to bid!

Thank you so much! At this point everything helps. If it’s alright with all, any additional money donated will be sent to poita to offset the cost of scanning.

No, I was not. I hadn’t noticed that until now. I guess we have a bit of competition this time.

This might seem a bit paranoid, as I’m sure it’s probably just a random film collector bidding. But, since this site does have its fair share of trolls, it might perhaps be best to keep the running total for donations private from here on?

I can’t imagine a troll risking an account with over 1100 in positive feedback on a fake bid. A private thread for the donations is a good idea though.

Ha, it’s still my guess that it will fetch over $400… let’s see! 😄

I doubt there are any trolls involved in bidding. Some collectors will bid way more than you would think even if it just went unsold. We’ve seen this happen before, and I know who some of the collectors are that will bid high when they want something. The seller has a good reputation among collectors as well which I expect makes nervous bidders feel a lot more comfortable.

Best of luck though!
