Thought this would be better in Yard Sale. Looks like bidding has gotten off to a good start!

Looks like I'm not the only one who hates Alti-Tracks.

George, I hope the rest of your auctions do well for you!

No, I already posted an announcement in Yard Sale a week ago, as these are 10 day auctions which are ending this Sunday night.

I posted this one in Watering Hole because I figure that people usually, if not always, check out the Watering Hole when they check out TRF. But may only bother to check out the Yard Sale when they actively want to see if anything is for sale or for auction.

I myself do not check every Forum. What I do is check “new posts”. But I can’t expect everyone does it that way.

The ones who do not check "new posts”, and do not regularly check out Yard Sale will not have seen my original post, or this one after you moved it.

Could you please move this one BACK to where I posted it, the Watering Hole?

Thanks.

I know, that plastic Alti-Trak wasn’t such a great thing....to actually use. But I thought an original plastic one, with the old face card with “NEW” on it, would be worth something to a collector. Oh well.

When I say “original plastic one”, I refer of course to the version they came out with in 1979. Not the original wooden one from the 1960’s.

Originally I was only going to list 10 items , and that was one of the last two I added. So if it does not sell, it doesn’t matter much. Not that I was expecting much for it, anyway.

UPDATE - finally someone put a bid on it.

I’m more concerned that the Centuri Saturn-V from the 1970’s isn’t bringing what the Estes one from 1999 currently is. I have to figure (hope) that some potential big bidders are waiting on that Centuri Saturn, since there are Estes ones (30th Anniversary from 1999) on Ebay almost every week, but how often is there such a rare kit available as the Centuri Saturn-V?

And in case any had not heard about it, this is why I tried to post news of this auction tonight in the Watering Hole since I do not think many people regularly check Yard Sale like they do Watering Hole.

Fair enough, but we try and keep things like this in Yard Sale so it doesn't end up with multiple copies of a thread in different sections. That way all the Vendor/Private sale announcements are in a place where people who want to look at them can, and those who don't aren't bothered by them.

The auctions have ended, and overall they went a lot better than I expected.

THANK YOU to all who won, those who bid, and those who passed the word to others.
