Requires a RealOne player to work, and only works with Windows. Apparently has lots of ads for AOL and RealNetwork stuff to wade through too. Sealed in bag as new. Can't guarantee it will work, so NO RETURNS on this item. Makes cool coasters, big earrings, necklace bling, hanging mobiles and anything other crafty thing you can do with CDs too. Have 2, and have seen others asking $3-$3.99, but I only want...$1 ea. (View)

Terry Labonte #5 car Kellogg's Racing Team cereal mail-ins:
Hendrick team transporter/hauler/semi, about 14" long, the 2001 version. Die cast cab, plastic trailer/container. These had problems with the tires splitting, so they offered replacement transporters if you returned the cab and tires, which I did for my two. So mine have the better tires. M.I.B., and nice colorful piece. I think they said these were a $14.95 retail value. Buy these for only...$6 each (View)
Also have 1 extra of just the trailer, the 1st "bad tires" version, with one slightly split tire...$3

Magazines & Media:

American Cars, by author Leon Mandel. Published by Stewart, Tabori, & Chang, New York, 1982, first print. ISBN 0-941434-19-2. Great 448 page 10"x12" hardcover book filled with photos of cars from Harrah's Automobile collection, covering 1893 to early 1980's. Lots of history and development info too. Has inscription in pen on front endpaper to me from my parents, as it was a birthday gift in 1982. Great condition, hardly ever looked at it. Dust jacket does have a few wrinkles on open edge, and normal but very light shelfwear, but no markings or tears. Binding appears tight still, but there's a very slight curve to the book, probably from storing it flat with other books stacked on it (not kept that way now), may flatten out if you want to bother. Great book for the car nut. No cover price listed on it, but one site said it was $48.50 new. I'm pricing it around the 'usual' average price I see for similar condition copies on the net (and you'll get faster service and usually better packing from me, so buy from the little guy who needs the money!). It's about 6.5 lbs by itself, so likely an 8 lb package in a box, so media mail would be $6.52 or so. Yours for only...$10 (View)
Automobile Magazine, Oct. 1994 (Vol. 9, #7), "New Cars '95" issue. Covers new domestic vehicles for 1995. Address label area blacked out with marker, otherwise, fine/very fine condition, complete...$1 (View)
Automobile Magazine, Nov. 1994 (Vol. 9, #8), "Imports, New for '95" issue. Has an article about musician J. Geils and his car restoration business; article with photos of various auction, racing and vintage car painted art posters. F/VF or better...$1 (View)
Automobiles Classiques #1, Vol. 1, Spring/Summer 1984. This is the American/English edition done by Arnauld de Fouchier Inc. in New York, which put out 1 issue, then was sold and restarted by a French publisher, then that happened again. Very high quality mag covering exotic and racing cars. 117 editorial pages, then 5 double page cutaway images of 5 racing cars: Porsche DP 936 & 935, BMW 320 & M-1, and Opel Ascona 400. Cover pic of a white Lamborghini Countach. Inside there's articles and great photos of the Lamborghini Countach, Mercedes Benz 300 SLR, Ferrari 275 GTB, the Duesenberg J & SJ, Connolly Bros (makers of the famous leather seat coverings), and an interview with Ferruccio Lamborghini, with nice pics of many of his creations. Excellent condition, I'm calling it Very Fine-Near mint. Some minor reading kinks on the back, and the binding glue has dried and separated from the pages, but they were also sewn in, so nothing has come loose, and it's perfectly readable. One subscription card of the 3 in the back has been removed ($49.95 for 4 issues, cover price was $15!). Near as I can find out, this appears to be the ONLY edition done in English, so I'd think that would make it highly collectible in the U.S. car mag market. Yours for original price...$15 (View)
Car and Driver "American Muscle Cars" 2003 calendar. 16 months, but 12 'full size' with photos. Unused, some slight fine scratches, one noticeable one on front, left side of windshield, very fine overall.

Various Sports Comics, Magazines:
Nolan Ryan in "The Winning Pitch." A mail-away comic produced by DC, Kelloggs and Sports Illustrated, from 1992. Part of "Tony's Sports Comics" series, it's a 16 pages with Nolan and Tony the Tiger teaching the proverbial positive life lessons to baseball playing kids. I used to get $5 for them at shows back in the '90s, and see prices from some auction and net sellers from $5-10. It doesn't appear to be "rare" though, judging by the number on auctions, but since this was a cereal mail-in, most shops won't have it. Have 3 NM copies in about 9.6, 9.4, 9.2...$2 ea. (View)
Pro Action magazine #1, 1994. A collaborative effort from Marvel Comics and NFL Properties, "Where Pro football, comics, and pop culture collide," this 48 page mag has features on NFL stuff, and Marvel stuff. Has Troy Aikman cover and article, with Wolverine slashing "through" it. The 2 neat features it has are an original Uncanny X-Men comic book bound in, with a 16 page story featuring Callisto and the Morlocks, by Ralph Macchio and Chris Marrinin, and two 4-card sheets of high quality trading cards: One sheet has Cyclops, Storm, Gambit, and Wolverine, other sheet has NFL Quarterbacks Randall Cunningham (Eagles), Steve Young (49ers), Phil Simms (Giants), and Warren Moon (Oilers). Also articles on rookie 49ers player Todd Kelley, interview with coach Dave Shula (Don Shula's son), Junior Seau's workout routine, and more. I have several, in VF/NM, VF, VF- and one in VG+, due to it's back cover getting several creases, and some spine wear on the front, but insides are ok. The others' defects are just a few spine kinks of various sizes. $2.95 cover. This should be a lot more valuable by now, due to the original comic and exclusive cards, and I didn't find very many for sale now on the net, but seems there's not a lot of demand for it still:
- VG+...$2 (View mag, cards, comic )
"Sports Heroes, Feats & Facts" 3-ring binder starter kit, near mint. Put out by International Masters Publishers back in 1995 or so. With the initial promotional stuff, you got the photo-illustrated 9.5"x10.5" hardboard binder and 24 pages (21 fact
files, 3 posters) of various Superstar athletes, and then you subscribed (paid) to get the rest of the hundreds of pages, in 12 sheet packs. Each heavyweight glossy paper file page folds out too, with multiple color photos of the athletes, with their history and stats. Nice quality stuff! Here's the list of page numbers with my set:
Baseball: #1 Bo Jackson, #4 Ken Griffey Jr., #12 Willie Mays, #14 Mickey Mantle, #20 Nolan Ryan, #23 Jackie Robinson.
Basketball: #1 Michael Jordan (folded across the middle, as it was a bonus one I got somewhere), #2 Charles Barkely, #9 Magic Johnson, #11 Larry Bird, #19 Scottie Pippen, #20 Patrick Ewing, #24 Wilt Chamberlain.
Football: #2 Jerry Rice, #7 Joe Namath, #10 Emmitt Smith, #11 Reggie White, #15 Joe Montana (folded across middle, another bonus one), #25 Gale Sayers, #26 Michael Irvin.
"All Sports Champions": #1 Mario Lemieux, #7 Carl Lewis, #11 Muhammad Ali.

You also get 5 "Greatest Moments," 4 "Bloopers & Trivia," and 3 "Record Book" pages. Plus a Sports Talk booklet with common phrases and definitions, a Guide for filling in the binder, and 8 dividers with photos on them too. If you replied to the first offer you also got the ESPN Sports Blooper Awards, a 35 minute VHS video hosted by Chris Berman. I have that, watched it once. An ad flyer says the Blooper video is a "$19.95 value", but we all know better. The starter kit is supposedly a $25.95 value according to them, but everyone sells these pretty cheap. Most listings I saw on a quick search didn't have the video, and had terrible descriptions, so you had no idea what you were getting. Saw places trying to sell individual pages for $2-$8 each too. This would make a cool gift for that sports nut, or a kid fan. Clearance! Now just...$8 (View)
Sports Illustrated 25th Anniversary Swimsuit issue, Feb. 1989 (Vol. 70, #6), CGC graded 9.2, ties for highest grade of VERY few graded. Certification #2058274003. Kathy Ireland cover, with inside pics of Rachel Hunter, Stephanie Seymour, Kelly Emberg and more. It has all the covers from previous swimsuit issues, and articles on all the cover girls, including legends like Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, Elle MacPherson, Paulina Porizkova, Carol Alt, and the rest. Newsstand copy, no mailing label. Case front has multiple small scuffs and fine scratches, you can see some in the scan. Quality Control was not paying attention, but I don't feel like returning it for reholdering at the moment. No returns for the scuffing. Hard to know what to ask, as there's few graded swimsuit issues on the market, and high prices being asked even for 1980's. Only 1 1981 copy sold for $195 in 9.0 that I've found. So if someone can pay that, this should be a bargain at...$200 (View)
Sports Illustrated for Kids, January 2000 (Vol. 12, #1), Randy Moss 2000 futuristic "art" cover. Comes with a collectible 9-card sheet of "Athlete of the Decade" cards (vintage photos & action shots), of Jim Thorpe, Babe Ruth, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, Jackie Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Pele, Muhammad Ali, Wayne Gretzky, and Michael Jordan.

No mailing label, VF+ or better overall. At cover price...$3 (View)

Best condition set of 4...$8 (View)
Miscellaneous Toys & Collectibles:
All as new, unused, unless noted.
Batman Glow-in-the-dark mail-in flying disc (like a Frisbee, but not made by Wham-O) from the 1989 Batman cereal, mint in mailer bags. 9" diameter. The copyright date of 1940 on it refers to that version of the Bat Symbol, not the year this disc was produced, as they of course didn't make these things in 1940. Have 2...$8 ea. (View)
Cal Ripken Jr. mini-bat and card set, by Signature Bats, 1996. Mint in package, still shrinkwrapped. Mine's #3481/15,000. "The World's Smallest Louisville Slugger", the black wooden bat is 4.5" long, and "every bat is a genuine scale replica of game used equipment and bears the Louisville Slugger trademark and player's reproduced signature," it says on the box. Comes with acrylic stand that holds both bat and card. Neat little item for Baltimore Orioles/Ripken fans. The clear plastic lid has a "wave" in it on right side due to the shrink-wrap, just so you know. List price was $15. Clearance!...$10 (View)
Starting Lineup 1996 Olympics Dan O'Brien figure, with trading card. Part of the Timeless Legends series. Dan was the Olympic Decathlon champion. NM hang card/bubble. Clearance!...$2 (View)
Ferrari 250 GTO painting print, by artist Charles "Chuck" Queener. About 12.75"x20", on fancier rag paper. This is a print of a watercolor painting of the 4-liter Le Mans/Nürburgring GTO. I got it for being a charter subscriber to Automobiles Classiques magazine back in 1984 (see the Mags section for the #1 issue). It's numbered #1839, so I assume they did at least that many, but no limitation stated. Never displayed, always stored in a tube, but came with a few very minor bend 'humps' (not wrinkled/creased) along top from mailing/handling, but you don't see them on the front, but can on the back. Nice gift for the Ferrari fan, and not something you'll find very often...$20 (View)
Lamborghini Countach Alpine Stereo ad poster. 18.75"x38". I think this one was for Alpine's 25th anniversary. Have 2, never displayed, excellent condition, but both have some foxing (foxing is small brown spots), mostly on the back, but now some on the front. Front foxing is in the gray areas, so doesn't show unless glinted (then you see dull spots in the gloss).
One has more than the other, most is on the left side. On normal poster stock. Long out of print, but several internet sellers still have them (at $20-$26), although some auction sellers claim 'rare', and charge outrageous shipping.
Slightly better one...$8
Other one (couple more minor handling kinks)...$6 (View)
Buy both for just $10!
Motorcycle Motocross Flick Trix toys store advertising poster/banner. Big 29"x72" door size poster for a line of toy "finger" motorcycles from Spin Master Toys. Dated 2000. Vinyl type poster, very nice condition, but has a few minor kinks here and there. Has to be pretty rare by now, and surely someone's kid or motocross toy fan would love this on their wall...$10 (View)
Roy Jones Jr. (the boxer) shoe store advertising poster. Huge! 48"x82", and double-sided. An advance poster for the July 2000 release of Jordan TRUNNER LX training shoes, and Roy models them in the photo. Got it from a Foot Action store. One side has a 3.75" edge tear in margin, a couple 1/2" to 3/4" ones above it, and another longer one at bottom margin at one of the hanger loops, but lots of margin there; 15" horizontal hump line on one side that goes through the shoe at the bottom; and some various wrinkles/vein lines here and there from handling, but nothing severe, overall it's decent condition, but certainly "used" some. Could easily be separated into 2 posters since it's separate sheets attached only at the bottom now, so you could keep one and sell the other, or put one on each side of the gym or garage wall, or wherever, or keep as is and put in a window. How hard do you think this is to come across these days? Hoping one of his fans would love to have this. Have seen much smaller fight posters of his sell for $50, and remember, this is two-sided...$35 (View)
