Listing Jonathan's items has been rewarding, but hugely time-consuming. I think it has turned out bo be way more effort than most of us suspected at the outset.

I for one think that letting the Museum of Flight or Estes having the Historical items is a great idea. That way the items can be on display for all to see and not tucked away in a closet or on a shelf in someone's Rocket Room. Way back when Jonathan was collecting these items they were not that rare and he collected for several years. But the compulsiveness of of collecting Rockets has turned collecting into a monster. I know as I have been bitten myself, I started collecting in 1978 and I would still be collecting today except for lake of space.

Where were the bidders on this one? I would have expected this one to go for 3 to 4 times this price, maybe more...........

I went up to $51 but no more on it.
Would have went higher if was the rarer but later green skill level hang tag version.
Kits just do not have nearly as high of value to me as others, with a very few exceptions.

That is a pretty low price for an early Trident. Looked t be in pretty good condition too. I never even saw that one come up in any of my model rocket searches. Not sure why I never saw it.

A good looking Camroc collection at (so far) a very reasonable price.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/165758655975

I'd expect it to go quite a bit higher before it closes (last Camroc I saw on ebay went for well over $100, and it was nowhere near as nice as this).
Heck, I'd be tempted if I didn't already have one...
