For Sale: Scribes
« on: September 15, 2010, 11:22:40 AM »
Haven't had many scribes up for sale online lately.  Should run a daily ebay search to stoke the sellers, lol.

If you find them, post them here.

On eBay, this one looks nice:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170540725982&ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

Starting bid $10, but here's the catch: you have to arrange for pickup from Mentor, Ohio.
Saves on shipping costs, that's for sure. 

I think a good selling price for this would be around $25-30, but who knows? With the shipping cost eliminated, bidders might be willing to pay more or no one might bid because there are no interested locals.

Funny thing is, I know somebody who lives there, but she never gets up HERE.  Could be a problem.  :)

You could figure out how much shipping would cost separately.  Sometimes the ebay sellers charge more for shipping to cover their packaging costs, etc.

No bids.  It might be relisted soon, so keep an eye out.

Another scribe - not a great bargain at $56+, but it's your money.

It's selling for the price that the pink figure skates autographed by Tai Babilonia should be selling at.

Ticks me off. I keep looking on there for scribes and never see them. Then my friend told me this one was there, and when I looked it was already sold.

If anyone sees another one, PLEASE let me know!

At $200 opening bid, way too rich for my blood:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Scribe-M-M-Peep-Ice-Figure-Skating-Tool-Portland-Sport-Measuring-Rare-/130917820784?ssPageName=ADME:B:SS:US:1123

The tassels on the end are cute - was the handlegrip replaced or do you think it came that way originally?
