You must have found a some that I missed. Plus the average shipping $6.50+

Recently sold listings on the Bay:

 

$4.40

$4.99

$4.99

$3.25

2 for $9.50

4 for $16.50

2 for $9.95

12 for $62

 

Most of these had original boxes and occasionally paperwork.

 

Shipping ran between $3.00 and $8.00 on these listings ($13 for the 12 bumpers)

 

 At the Greenburg show in Edison this spring I bought 6 of them for $30, 4 of which were boxed and had paperwork.

 

 

I agree with all that you say Andrew B.  These days, if a 260 is >= $10 at a show, I just keep moving because there's no point in even bargaining.  3 for $10-15 is the new set point.
