Exactly the kind of thing that happens when a couple of folks with DEEP pockets decide they want something at ANY cost Mo

The color and box dates it to the early 1980's.

You can BET that anyone that see's this will be DIGGING around to see if THEY have one to sell

"Honey, I just dropped a G on this sweet little lure that is only 30 years old. What? No, it's not an antique, they just don't make it anymore. Hummmm? Why of course I am not going to fish it. I am going to display it on the mantle. Of course it will go with the decor. What in the world are you talking about? This lure will accent any decoration. NOOO, don't take it out of the box!!! That would ruin its value. How much did it originally cost? Oh, about a buck-59. What do you mean you have to reload the Glock?"

It's a sad day when you have to raid the 401K to buy a lure on ebay.

But those are some sweet-looking little lures.

I think I have some of those torpedos like the ones in your collection. Do you have a list of what colors to look for?

The wild part of this is that you never really know when a certain color is being sought...or even IF it is being sought after.

A good example is the one in that Ebay auction. I NEVER would have guessed that it would have gone for anywhere's NEAR that much. The color and box dated to the early 1980's.

That said, the red & white one I had up at the top with the early Intro box and props only got me $85.

Look for colors you've never seen before...gold around the eye pupils...and early style props is my best suggestion.

That second one is very appealing to the eye.
