Don’t miss this awesome Major Matt Mason brand new toy for your collection! Thanks for looking and happy bidding!



My Take:
Considering that this auction was for an item in ITALY I think the price remained very strong. If this were in the US I'd suspect a selling price more in the $750 range and perhaps higher. I think this is the iconic MMM collectible and most other buyers would probably also agree.


MAJOR MATT MASON GAMMA RAY-GARD PAK STILL IN PACK



eBay Auction #220470676037
Ending Bid: $88.00
End Date: Aug 30, 2009 21:10:12 PDT

Description:
MAJOR MATT MASON GAMMA RAY-GARD PAK
HTHIS AUCTION IS FOR A 1968 VINTAGE TOY THAT WENT WITH THE OLD MAJOR MAT MASON LINE.

THE ITEM COMES MINT STILL IN THE PACK BUT THE PACK HAS SOME SMALL CREASES AND THE TWO BOTTOM CORNERS ARE ROLLING UP AND NOT IN THE BEST SHAPE..

PLEASE CHECK OUR AUCTIONS FOR OTHER GREAT ITEMS PLUS WE ARE AND HAVE MARKED DOWN ALOT OF OUR ITEMS IN OUR STORE AND THINGS ARE SELLING FAST. THANKS

WE WILL GLADLY COMBINE SHIPPING COSTS ON MULTIPLE ITEMS TO HELP OUR CUSTOMERS REDUCE COSTS.

My Take:
There's been a general decline in the price of most of the carded accessories - I believe this is due to the most recent case finds (multiple cases of one assortment was found in the spring - you'll see those 4 carded accessories on eBay for $35-50). The remaining 8 cards are still selling strong as proven by the price of this Gamma Ray-Gard Pak at $88, even in the so-so condition. I think the cards are going back into an up-swing in prices with the announcement of the MMM movie. I predict that all figures and sets will start climbing.
