Beautiful Blue 302 on eBay
« on: December 29, 2013, 08:41:46 AM »
Anyone watching this? I really thought someone would spring for the BIN of $2500. The way top dollar is still being spent for toughies, I don't think it is out of line.

This is one beautiful phone and was #1 on my want list for many years. I know how happy I was when I finally found mine. I remember the fear as I opened the box and prayed that it got to me unscathed. It did!....Doug

Saw that phone within minutes of it being listed. Would have been an auction contest except for the reserve and the BIN price. I'd say 60-40 on no sale. Very nice phone, though.

That is a beautiful phone, although I am perfectly happy with and have been very fortunate to get my Med blue 500. I wonder, would a dark blue 302 and a med blue 500 side by side have the same shade of blue?

A beautiful telephone...I think it's my favorite color on the thermoplastic 302's but way pricey for me when they come up.  This one met reserve and sold for $1313.00.  It would've made a wonderful addition to my cream, red and rose thermoplastic 302's.

Was anyone watching this?  Another Blue 302 on ebay sold yesterday for the same price as this one, $1313.00, also with 23 bids.  What are the chances?

This is the one that sold yesterday. Different seller, different high bidder, but in both cases, r...r (478) stopped at $1288. The next bid increment (+$25) after $1,288 is $1,313.

Wow, talk about a surprised seller. They must have thought it was any ordinary blue phone, judging by the lack of knowledge in the title. Once it got past $500, I bet they got really happy.
