    I have thousands of these spools. I'm retiring tomorrow! I'm glad I don't have to sell my Beany Baby collection.

    Wow! I must have a few thousand dollars worth.

    I knew hoarding would be good for something one day.

    Gold digger more like! There may be someone out there with more cash than sense. It takes all kinds.

    No wait a minute, are they still boxed and can they be described as mint condition?

    It kinda makes me wonder what I could get for my tinfoil collection if I sold it on ebay.

    I must be one of very few members of this forum who don't have an Ebay account, and these two adverts explain why.

    Alan, if your tinfoil collection was shaped like hats, you could make a million!

    I have some very special pocket lint, some hundreds of fired .22rf shells, lots of empty 35mm casettes, I might be a millionaire!

    We could buy the 120 spools from the second seller at 10 for $9.99 then see if we could sell them to the first seller for $4.99 each so he could sell them for $9.99 each.
    This way we all make money.

    Phooey to take up reels. You reckon for the price the reel could be reloaded with just the backing paper for all those dudes who want to do homeopathic photography.

    I think you're on to something there Maris.

    We can sell the backing paper separate. Wrapped in tinfoil.

    How about special custom-made spools ?
    I can make them out of aluminium for a couple hundred each, we just need a way to hype them.
