7. This Week's Stories and Requests for Help/Blast from the past
Please share your story about collecting with us, and we will publish it here. Send your story to firstname.lastname@example.org
Here's a reprint from the Collectors Newsletter published December 27, 2001:
This isn't the most spectacular story in the world, but it sure goes to show you to listen to your own instincts. A couple of years ago, I saw a horribly bright green plastic pogo stick in a friends backyard. I asked her about it, and she said, "oh just take the thing out of here". I did and when I got it home, the name on it was Hoppy the Hopperoo, Flinstones, and on the back was Blazon and then 1965 I think was the date. Anyway, I knew it was something kind of unusual so I figured a Flinstone collector might want it. Well, I tried to sell it and to no avail, and it just kept getting in my way, so I sold it on ebay for about $45 dollars. A few months later, I got my latest edition of Kovels newsletter and low and behold, there it was listed for $400! I had succumb to the pressure of my roommate who hated the thing even though I KNEW it was worth more that $45! And the guy who bought it, bought it because he already had one and wanted to keep the other one company! Oh well, live and learn! Lynda Ho
