FINALLY Got It - The Elusive Matchbox

Postby tsarlitto » Thu Aug 25, 2016 3:47 pm

Well if anyone has been following ebay this past week, if you noticed the #13 Dodge Wrecker in reverse color was auctioned off, I was the winner and finally got the elusive piece of Matchbox. Since the #13 Dodge Wrecker is my favorite piece, I have been wanting this one for a long time. It came in the mail today and as I nervously opened the box, there it was, the HOLY GRAIL #13. Not mint, but it is original. After snapping a few photos, it is now displayed with my other #13's, and can now move on and hunt for the other Matchbox I would like.

Holy Moly Tom. That is a winner. Nicely done. Never even seen a beater in person.
