Here's a legitimate IVORY 302 on eBay. I could wear my white belt...

Just resurfaced in a 10 day auction starting at $0.99 with no reserve, and a new view.

Double good grief.

Stupid question: Can someone put up the same item in more than one auction at a time?

Yes, they can, but if both sell, then they're up a certain creek that contains unpleasant matter... :D

I understand the "sex appeal" thing they are trying to market but (as a mom) if I wanted this phone for my teenager or pre-teen daughter's room (which it would be perfect for) I wouldn't buy it. Put it next to some fluffy pillows, a stuffed animal and some girly stuff in the background and it would sell.
The person that would buy it I would think is female. The whole sex appeal thing does not work here, not that I'm against it. I hope they sell before they think of some other weird pose! And, The shoes are too big!! lol

Agreed, this is for the ladies.

If the price is reasonable, I would happily buy this for my 11-year-old girl. I showed her the listing and she loved it, including the shoes! We both win, as I would be one step closer to satisfying MY desire to have a vintage phone in every room.

Ugh ... I hate when they "market" to the ladies.  Its like the NFL now marketing to the ladies and selling 'pink' jerseys.  A real 'FAN' would never, and I repeat, NEVER, buy a jersey or tee shirt of their team in anything but their team's true colors.  

I could never buy a phone like this knowing that my dad never worked on a phone in this color!  Just my opinion.  I hate being "marketed" to.  :'(

Actually I talked to this person that "re-did" this phone and he had people begging for it.  The guy that did this phone seems to be a pleasant person. That phone had a lot of hours in it.  So I am told.  I hate to see any 302 get it's date nailed by painting the inside, but apparently the phone was a basket case to begin with.  Still, I see things go on Ebay and I scratch my head in disbelief.   Opinions and horse races.  The long shot always wins one of the days group of races.

At least he didn't screw up the dial.  Everything else can be "fixed" with Krylon and new cords.

All of the pictures in this listing are blurred but it's the color and how it got that way that reminded me of this thread.
