It's true...that TRW Ball Joint normally goes for a lot more money.

Someone had to say it. Actually, the M113 Johnson looks real nice in that old period frame.

I hope outing the auction so soon after it ended doesn't jeopardize the deal for the buyer.

Happened to me (but not via a N54 auction outing).

More unwritten rules around here than in baseball, which is already way too many.

Confession..
 
Ok, Iíll come clean. It was i that purchased the item. I typically would never post about such a sell but I was mainly fishing to see if anyone would actual elaborate on a value as I couldnít find any sold listings or any sort of population of them. I thought I got a good deal but wasnít 100% sure. But nonetheless if I overpaid itís still $200 worth of cool to me so I guess thatís all that matters.

Maybe I should have waited a day or two to post but once the tracking number was posted I couldnít help myself.

Despite possession of a tracking number, the seller legally could have showed up at a post office somewhere along the delivery route and intercepted the package and demanded its return. I've consulted unwritten rule 1276(a)(3)(ii) and believe you are still in technical violation.

Ok then, I will add back the much bigger image I posted, then took down because of other members waving the caution flag. Hope it makes it way to you.

Can someone post what the heck this thing is and what's the reason for all the hubbub?? We clueless schmucks would like some insight.

Listing of one in much nicer condition (but missing nice old frame)
 
Here is a current listing of one in much nicer condition:

Personally, not one of my favorite WaJO items....that said, I don't remember that pose so that is kind of neat.

Definitely reminiscent of a Jack Johnson pose.

Now you've done it. Frank will now respond in a post that I will have zero chance of understanding. :(

Pretty sure that swearing is against Net54 rules. :D

CrackaJackKid 06-15-2018 09:05 AM

Got it.
 
I received the Wajo poster. Such a neat looking piece. No one sniped it out from under me.
