I was browsing eBay the other day and came across a 1st-run Blair's 2AM. These were pre-black wax and probably had an original retail price of around $30 (just guessing)....

 

The wax has a crack in it....but 90% of them of this age do...so no big deal. But what got me was the starting bid:

 

$5.00

 

Yes, folks.......FIVE DOLLARS! 

 

So...I bid.....$5.01 (mostly as a joke) then promptly forgot about it.

 

Yesterday....I get a winner notification.  :shocked:

 

Yes, folks.....I won. And for five dollars! Oh, how far the value of these once desired collectibles have fallen! Heck...I'll buy them all day long at $5/bottle!!

Nice grab for only $5. I have one like that with a crack in the exact same place. Bought it many years ago when it was the only private reserve Blair sold. I've got a few collectible reserves. Really hard to find buyers. Spent a lot of $ on them when I was collecting sauces.

I wish we could have PK2's entire collection pinned somewhere on THP.

 

I hate this word but that collection is EPIC.

There's a television show about people who collect food. Usually petrified cats and stacks of magazines and stuff, too. :rofl:

The original ebay listing doesnt link so please post when you get it.  That is a score! 

 

 

 

 

Pauly has pics of his collection around here somewhere from a few years ago.  It probably has a few new bottles,

 

May be time for an update, Pauly?  :)
