More bidders had shown up by this point of time as well, so things weren’t looking so great for us.
We moved to one corner of the tent with fewer people to talk about what we were going to do and we decided that with much of the good stuff ruined, we had better not go for the whole thing.
We ended up winning 5 boxes with a total of 670 cars.
We figured, if nothing else, it would be fun to decorate the office with them.
It sounded confusing and time consuming, so Jesse threw out the idea of auctioning off the entire lot.
The auctioneer liked that idea, but said he had to get the family’s approval.
As soon as he pulled up, I jumped in and asked what was happening. We drove a few blocks down the street and turned into a property with a sign for an estate auction and that’s when I spotted a sign for Hot Wheels. Under two large tents were tables full of Hot Wheels!
I spotted a large auction poster that claimed there were 20,000 cars.
So if you ever see an estate auction with thousands of Hot Wheels, you really should stop by and see if you can add a few of these micro sized finds to your collection.
Though some of them also ended up Running the Asylum.
He told me he would be there in 5 minutes and to be outside waiting for him.
He told us the cars were scheduled last, so we would have to wait for them to auction everything else off.
So we stood there wondering what would happen and if we would be going home with 10k Hot Wheels.
