Default More eBay Silliness ....

I'm thinking of buying this to get the Toy Story posters. Who cares about the rest of that stuff?

Photo's of the crew's kids? That seems kinda weird. Impressive collection otherwise.

I have the "Apollo 11 Artifacts Collection" set that is included in the auction. It was sold at bookstores during the holidays a couple of years ago. It's interesting, but nothing to get real excited about. It includes reproductions of things related to the moon flights including patches, documents, and ... copies of photos the astronauts took with them.

But, I'm pretty sure it didn't include a couple of Toy Story posters, at least mine didn't.

Anyway, I never knew that the astronauts took Toy Story posters to the moon. It must have something to do with Tom Hanks.

I wonder if there's really someone out there that would think to themselves ... hmm .. $795 for an autographed photo of Von Braun ... that's a lot ... wait ... it comes with a DVD of "The Right Stuff?!" Well, then, that makes it worth it! :-)

I would LOVE to have the autographed photo of Von Braun, but I'm not willing to pay quite that much for it.

But, you also get a DVD of "The Right Stuff!" Isn't that enough to change your mind? :-)

Here's a listing for a really cool looking RTF rocket:

(Of course, the seller will probably have fixed the image before you view the auction, so I'll be the one that ends up looking silly.)
