Loosen up those purse strings, boys. This one may be a wild ride.

I can't even begin to describe how good of an idea I think it is to spend 20-50k on a cardboard box. One of you should definitely buy this. It's a 'can't lose'...uh..."investment."

Also, I DEFINITELY want to party with THIS seller. He's into the good stuff, and he's got an incredible sense of humor.

He makes Hank Williams -- on his worst day -- seem downright sober.

I can't even begin to count that high? The Cat that appraised it must have been on the same juice?

Raimey, I've participated in Ward's Collectibles Auctions for years, and bought a good many boxes of vintage shells. When they appraise an item they are pretty accurate. Seldom do they appraise it too high. This one, as I said, may be a wild ride.

One would have to be very well off, a really, really SERIOUS collector or mentally ill to spend that much for a cardboard box that has been "professionally" restored. How does one define a professional restoration of a cardboard box and how does that impact the value?

Although I totally agree, may I redirect your attention to the Beanie Baby craze? Now only if I could predict these phenomena...

Chantry,
Note, this is not an empty box, it is a full box of shells. Don't misunderstand, this is out of reach for my collection; I am just correcting the record.

If I was going to drop that kind of money on it, I would want a pair of these first to make sure it is indeed full of shells.
