I was watch/bidding on today's Stout auction and couldn't believe the final bid on Lot 2216, a Lionel 437 switch tower in C9 condition. It went for $19,000! Here's a link the the auction https://connect.invaluable.com...VABQC5U3YV?pageNum=4 Must have deep pockets to spend that kind of money on a toy. With the premium it cost more than the car I bought for my two teenage kids.
I bid on multiple lots and I got lucky and won the one auction I really wanted, Lot 2243, American Flyer Grand Canyon set. https://connect.invaluable.com...4006-4010_DB343A3A8C I submitted my highest bid this morning before the lot came up as I didn't want to get caught up in the heat of the moment and over bid. I was certain I was going to get way out bid but I won with $100 dollars to spare on my max bid, so I'm pretty happy.
