    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    honestly it all depends on which lots i buy and how much i have to pay. it's stuff i want to get in and out fast, so the cheaper i get it the cheaper you get it.

    If you get the Caddy, you've got to put horns on the hood - you are in Texas after all.

    I'd go for the Corvette, pure Route 66! EDIT - well it's not the exact model, but similar feel.

    Nice framed jerseys as well - wonder how much those will get?

    Good luck, Lance. BTW, assuming that the 11.5 EG's were the US rather than the UK size, I'd probably be interested in those and possibly other shoes from the lot, so please keep us posted . . .

    OK, more pix from the auction stuff. they organized it a little better which was good for shoes but bad for clothing b/c the hangers of stuff were tied together so i couldn't pull out anything but i did get:

    these are babe ruth things, and the document in the center sure looks authentic like it's the actual paperwork of the trade. can't imagine it is but it is a good replica if it's not real

    Nice pics. If you're trying to assess what to bid on, I'd have some interest in a27, a28, 32/33 and 34/35. Good luck and have fun.

    honestly i'm probably going to bid on all the lots. for instance, the shoes i put up here are contained in 3 separate lots, but within those lots are probably 20 pairs of worthless beaten up shoes, then a few lizard/crocs that have been worn and have some value, then some random belts. the leather jacket is in a lot with 2 $2,700 purple label cashmere blazers brand new and 10 random shirts. there is no rhyme or reason to how they paired it up, just probably threw it all together b/c the interest will be low b/c what normal person wants to buy 20 shoes to get 1?

    It occurs to me that if you're going to get stuck with the "worthless" beaten-up shoes anyway, assuming they're beaten-up versions of stylish/good quality shoes, they may be of some interest to forum members who like, or are interested in learning how to, antique shoes themselves.

    This is very compelling. Some of the shoes look new. I am fond of estate sales-it brings out the worst in people.[​IMG]

    i'll definitely offer the more worn ones, and they'd probably be like $20 or something low, especially if people were to experiment with antiquing on shoes that didn't cost a fortune. otherwise, i'm donating a lot of it to goodwill, but i'll certainly take pix of all of it on the chance that people want some of it

    Very interesting. Does anyone have a link to the online viewing that works? The one in the article is for one of those fake search engines.

    ED: NM, only one of the links doesn't work.
