Somebody Got a Nice One...

Dark Beige 554

I was watching this one, more out of curiosity than anything.  The ending bid seems reasonable, given the color.  What I find odd, though, is that I have seen more auctions for this color, over the last three years, and less for the LIGHT beige version in soft plastic-- but this color will get the higher bid more than the other.  I realize that light beige is less popular than any other color, but I ask you.  If you are collecting "every color", doesn't rarity help dictate value?

I had a low snipe on that just in case it somehow escaped other peoples' notice.

Larry,

It never hurts to try!  I didn't know you were looking for 554's.

Okay, how low? $20?  ;D

Jumped over $100 in less than 12 hours. Winner placed only one bid. Always curious what the top end of a snipe was but, will never know . . .

Love a good rose beige. 554 or 500. I think the 554 are rarer.
