    Giant lot auctioned on eBay

    http://www.repubblica.it/persone/201...?ref=HRESS-4#1

    A lot of around 1000 vintage cameras is on sale on eBay.
    The base price is not really contained, some $30 - 40 per piece, but might be interesting.

    If somebody is a repairer there's a life of work here refurbishing the cameras and re-selling them on auction sites with a nice profit.

    at image #5 - as if we're entering a tomb! Is he stood between two cabinets?

    i saw that -- saw one rollei tlr, if he had more cameras worth bothering with you can bet he'd show them.

    Look closely, most of that stuff is the sort of thing you can buy for $10 at a thrift store -- repairing and reselling at a profit is not going to work with this stuff. This guy obviously was a hoarder -- he bought everything, no matter what. I guess it's not as messy as hoarding cats, not as flammable as hoarding newspapers.

    the per-camera price at bid works out to $35 each -- far too high for most of those.

    And, so far, (2 1/2 hours until auction close), only one (1) bidder - with zero (0) feedback!
    I know everybody using *Bay started with zero feedback, but on a sale like this,
    I would be very suspicious as a seller to someone with zero feedback.
    I bet we'll probably see this sale re-posted in the coming weeks.

    Too pessimistic?
