Indeed this is a Matchbox Collectables release from a Models of Yesteryear casting the first being the yellow version worth about $15-$20, this christmas version would be worth slightly more at maybe $20-$30.

I took a look for myself and I saw that there was one that was setup for Buy It Now and it's $149.99 (£88.68). Then I took a look at Ebay Listings that have already sold. There is one with 2 bids, and it sold for $74.99(£44.29), followed by one with a minimum bid of $84 but the Best Offer was accepted instead.

Excuse the ignorance but I'm from the United States so I haven't a clue if eBay is the same for me as it is others. So I may just told you the same listings you saw lol

WOW! :shock:

Had I seen this one sitting on someone's $5 table, I would have passed it right on by. I didn't think ANYBODY collected these anymore. :roll:

Next time I see one, if ever, I'll be sure to take a second look at it before I put it back down and walk away. Yesteryears are neat and some of the best diecast ever produced as far as detail goes, but I think I've got all the models of them I will ever need, especially in post 1975 models.
