Rare Ebay Find
« on: September 30, 2018, 10:03:47 PM »
Someone is selling a NIB 15 pound Clear Amulet. the Listing is found here
https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-In-Box-15lb-Visionary-Clear-Amulet-Bowling-ball/253900619752?hash=item3b1da7ffe8:g:aeQAAOSwtBZbrTcg

I actually had one some years back, don't know why I got rid of it..silly me...(but I have a clear wolf now) 

You wanted to let people know there is one out there.

Nice find, but I doubt it will sell at that price.

Or best offer is your friend on a price like that.

I would spend too much money to have another of those...but not that much.  Geez.

Let this be there Wednesday.... I'll pull the trigger. My house shot on Wednesdays is so dry this will definitely see some action throughout the season. If I pop 2-3 pots after purchase, it pays for itself. $235 isn't that bad of a price.

Wow, price has dropped $15 in the past day. Or maybe I don't remember it correctly. I'm pretty sure it was $250 yesterday.

By the way, it's not $235, it's $235 plus shipping. For me that would be $280, which of course you might be willing to pay.

Have to agree with that!  The last ball I bought from eBay for myself was a 15lb Visionary Violet Gargoyle and the Best Offer was well off the price...but it was out there so long so they sold it.  :)

Still got it...undrilled...in the closet.

Damn collectors.  I would love to see those balls with holes in them and a track developing just to horrify the collectors.  Still collectors are why we still have NIB older stuff to be fair.

I am using one of the original Clear Gargoyles (like the one in the second link) as my LH spare ball.

$1288 and $888 !?!?! The seller could cut the price in half and still not sell either of them, cut the price in half again, and then maybe...

Those will never sell, unless some idiot stumbles on them. I guess it could happen.
