Wow!!  $10,100???  That's crazy.  Good thing you didn't post this up here when it was a live auction.  Otherwise, the bidding would have likely gone to, say, $10,100...[rolleyes]

I bid early for fun, and was WAY surprised to see it go this high!  Hell, I was surprised at $3.100.00!

Just as bad were the red urethane risers that just went for 70 some odd dollars!

Obviously 10k is a shitload of money to most of us if not all of us, but to some it ain't shit.
People with a lot of $$,$$$,$$$.00 that aren't in the game but just want what they had when they were a kid will look at that deck and pay whatever it takes.
But on the other side/point of view, the auction could have been a shill, which I have seen many over the years, and I believe that's what we have here a shill.

Yea, tend to agree on all.  A $7k jump?  Weird bidding at the very least.

Hmmm... maybe it's not a shill and someone (or 2 people) wanted it really bad and had no idea that throwing 10k and 10k over respectively would bite them in the ass. If this is legit someone is going to have to dig deep.
I mean how does one explain to the wife unit that hey "honey I just dropped 10k on a skateboard"? 
Interesting...

Seen this discussed on Faceache. Firstly it apparently has been paid for! Two guys thought that they would bid a silly amount to secure the deck thinking it wouldn’t go much higher than it was, but they fucked themselves when two people bid $10k.

It’s utter madness to me, you can get those much cheaper.

Well if that's the deal, one bidder got really really lucky and the other got really really butt hurt... BAD
