    Okay guys and gals did a little shopping today. I have bought odd and end die cast before but not really serious.I know someone that is getting rid of his collection and here is what I picked up, let me know what you guys would think someone would pay for all these and then I will let you know what I paid. Okay here goes: (forgive me if I don't give enough info or if I give too much) Everything is in original box except for the one Stewart Car that is in a nice case.

    I would guess, overall, about 450 dollars? Is that too high? I hope you got a good deal. I need a few Robby Gordon cars now to complete the collection, he have any of those. (i'm not at home so I don't know any specifics right now.)

    I know I saw one Robby Gordon but he has so many there may be more, let me know which you need and I will call him. And yes $450, is high. :p

    It depends on the brand. Are they Action or Winner's Circle? You should pick up a diecast price guide.

    esorlxaw Guest

    wow, 450 is high? You got a hellacious deal then...of course, tabasco is right, if they are winner's circle, then they aren't worth near as much as their action counterparts. okay, a lot of them are 1/64, that would make a big difference, let me say ,175?

    esorlxaw Guest

    hell yes!

    there's no way that any of the 1:24 scales are less than ten dollars a piece, so you at least broke even. given that tony's cars are worth good money, i'm sure you made a pretty penny.

    You bought 27 die cast for $100? that would mean you paid about $3.70 each, thats a good bargain!
     
  11. DeeDee

    I think I got a heck of a deal! Tay already has the collector barbie and I paid $30 for that. And many of the cars have prices on them and I know he didn't charge me anything near what he has in them.

    Probably wouldn't have a die cast of his car seeing that he was an ARCA driver. He also drove a limited schedule in the Busch series but I don't remember which car.

    Blaise was the 1996 ARCA rookie of the year and he had 3 ARCA wins to his credit including a win at Michigan.

    Can't remember for sure but I believe he was killed in 2001.

    Alexander killed in ARCA race
    Blaise Alexander, 25, died Thursday of severe head injuries sustained in an accident during an ARCA race at Lowe's Motor Speedway. With four laps remaining in the Easy Care 100, Alexander and Kerry Earnhardt collided as Alexander passed Earnhardt for the lead. Just past the start-finish line, the right rear of Alexander's car made contact with the left front of Earnhardt's, sending the cars spinning and Alexander head-on into the wall. Earnhardt's car flipped and skidded upside-down along the frontstretch. Alexander's car came to rest in the infield grass. When emergency medical technicians arrived, Alexander had no pulse and showed no life signs. He was transferred to the track's infield care center, where doctors tried to revive Alexander for 25 minutes. They pronounced him dead at 10:20pm/et. ARCA President Ron Drager said Alexander had been wearing the required "horse collar," a foam device designed to restrict the movement of the driver's head in an accident. The collar was manufactured by Simpson Performance Products, and there was no apparent failure of the collar. Alexander wasn't wearing any other head-and-neck restraint system. Kerry Earnhardt was taken to the track's infield care center but was not injured. He later returned to the facility and found Norris. The two went inside to be with Alexander's family. Wednesday's race was called after the accident and Earnhardt declared the winner, having led the last completed lap. Alexander was credited with second.(
     
  15. They did make a Blaise Alexandre car... both Arca and Busch Series, i have both cars... limited production run of 100 each....

    they are also autograph, i got them autograph right before his crash
     
  16. u got some good and ****** cars that you bought.. i would be adivse to keep the Adam Petty's, and Alan Kulwicki's, very high dollar pieces..... 1/18th scales are crap, they arent worth anything unless its Jr... u got some good Tony Stewart Peices and Jeff Gordon Peices..
     
  17. If you can get any good deals on any Kasey Kahne 1/24 "Action" scale cars let me know!

    What?? not worth anything?? i tried to get a 1/18th scale Tony STewart car and it was $70!!!!! and she paid only $30 more dollars for all that.
     
  19. Yes 1/18th scales are junk..... thats why they dont make that many anymore.. I am a manager for a racing store and i work on the Nascar Circuit has a vendor.... they dont sale unless it has Jr.
     

  20. Which Kasey Kahne cars are you looking for???

    Which would be 1/18th scales? and as far as them not being worth nothing unless they are juniors.... well I don't agree with that. I wanted them so they were worth something to me. And I bought the pieces because I wanted them or thought my daughter or friend would enjoy them. I think I got a good deal everything I got and for only $100, that was the point.
