For me it was a new concrete driveway and a new patio. I would have preferred the knife though.
Yeah, but you already have one
Anyway, i see the early bids as just raising the starting point for the real bidding...
Couldn’t care less...
If you cared less, you might not have even posted.
Irrelevant - it's a knife second, it's AB's first and foremost.
Could be the calm before the storm… last auction I won I decided no sense expressing interest until the 11th hour, just watching quietly in the background, then bid around the time anti-sniping provisions would apply.
Some Kramer’s have sold for over $50k, I think there was a Kiritsuke over $60k. Will be interesting to se what this goes for
I would not be surprised to see $50-60K final price incl premium
The unrestored mustañg McQueen drove in Bullit went for big bucks.
My mistake has not gone to auction yet. Saw it in a glass case at Mecum auction. It will sell in the millions.
Mindboggling what the 'celebrity factor' does to value.
That's a sweet ride!
Thanks for the link. Curious to see how much it goes for. It would be nice if it could end up in public arena. Probably not though.
A Aston Martin DB5 Sean Connery Bond Movie sold for 6.4 million. Then again a DB5 is worth a lot more at auction then a fastback Mustang. I'm sure that Pony is worth more unrestored. It is a pretty cool car. Read somewhere that the owners wife used it as a daily driver for a while, her kids thought it was too loud
Off topic, sorry. For less money than the mustang, I'd rather have this Triumph motorcycle from Steve McQueen's collection:
Bond's Aston Martin had been a dream car for me.
i'm gonna buy that knife and then immediately flip it here for the double. now you know!
Do it! Next bid will cost you $27,500.
I promise that I'll buy it from you for double the price if you do. Oh, fine. Triple.
You can also pay me in ferraris or lambos.
Curious on what the highest price a Kramer knife has sold for?
Wow that's a nice Triumph. One of my first bikes back in the day was a BSA 441 Victor single thumper. Wish I still had that bike. Off topic celebrity knives to cars & motorcycles sweet polished aluminum engine casings much better than chrome.
It went up a $1000. Now $27,000 total. 2 days to go. Maybe things will get interesting tomorrow.
My sniping program is set to max out at $37,000. I won't pay a penny more!
I think there was one with some crazy engraving on the handle that went for over $50k. The Kramer auctions are tough to follow these days because you can't register if you aren't in the US anymore.
Plus he makes you pay
I believe that is to keep people from logging in and screwing up the auctions. I can understand the need. It's only a $1.00 if I remember correctly. He gives a heck of a lot more money to charities than I ever will, so more power to him.
16-17 hours to go. Then we will all know the truth of the value of a celebrities' name once he is gone I guess.
So what did it end up going for?
Current bid is 50k (plus 25% buyer’s premium).
Three hours remaining.
Two hours left, now at $62,500.00 (including buyers prem.).
So thats WildBoar out then.
