There are a large number of collectors here who visit because they know there is a regular listing of antique books from as early as the 1400s to the nineteenth century. This is the same with other categories. A customer of mine, in order to raise money to purchase one of my manuscripts, sold some of his glass collection; several items sold for nearly $1,000 each (I checked).
The readers of Cigar Aficionado should be aware that there are high-quality and rare items in the regular eBay. While they might not find the Declaration of Independence, there are bargains to be found, which explains why a great number of book dealers visit eBay to purchase inventory. In any event, keep up the good work, and happy bidding.
It is so refreshing to know I am not alone when it comes to the namby-pamby attitudes of our elected officials. When will it end? Voting, I feel, has come down to picking the lesser of the two evils. I saw a glimmer of hope when Jesse Ventura was elected in Minnesota. His article (August 2000) was very refreshing. I only hope more people would follow Minnesota's lead--and vote. Imagine what would be said if more than 60 percent of the voters actually voted this November?! An individual who said what he/she truly felt would have my vote.
