I wonder why he put the Mach 25 patch on the pocket rather than under the name tape? Strange.

I missed out on bidding as I was busy with something.
Still can't believe there were NO bids on eBay.

Does anyone have a clue what this eventually went for?
Probably for the best that I missed the auction as my wife would have cut off a vital part of my anatomy had I bid and won it... 8O

Looks like they held it back again. The last time I checked, the bidding was at $700.

I know of at least four different places that the suit was listed on in auctions, and it was withdrawn every time. I bid on it into separate auctions, only to have the item retracted each time. I'm not 100% convinced anyone's actually going to sell the thing at this point. I bid twice, and I'm not wasting any more time on it.

I've not had the 'winning bid' but I've bid as well in the various auctions.

Market value is the price that a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept. Their estimated value was $1,500-2,500 so I can understand them having a price that they want to get before selling it. It would be nice if they said so, tho.
