WHY is this over $150 with an hour to go?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-G...rentrq:3393c9331720a4d6b16a7844ffdd6f3c|iid:1

I missed one of these a few weeks ago. It went for about $75.

Then, another was listed in the UK. I won that one with a total cost delivered of about $25. Arrived as new, perfectly packaged.

Now, I see this. Bizzare. There was only one other bid on the one the I got from the UK.

I remember when these were all over the place in the 80s. I'm sure I must have one or two stashed but I can't find them.

I was speaking with Stan of GCA today. He said that 5000 of the first G19 brochures were printed. He thinks the G1 19 in it is his. They came out with the Gen 2s quickly. He heard that about 1000 of the brochures were given out with the rest trashed. I've still not been able to find one. Missed one by a seller of gun catalogs for $12. Ugh.

I got the last two. ~$136 and ~$83 IIRC. I wish I would have gotten them for the price you paid.

I've been looking hard for the Gen 1 G19 brochure. I have a bunch of older brochures, but missing one of those. I've even offered a finder's fee (further cementing my place in the world as "crazy").

Bought one 2 weeks ago from Vintage Gun Catalogs for $18 counting shipping.
You must have been buying it while I was looking at it. I saw it, went to add it to my cart, and it wasn't available anymore. Did snag a mint '95 Glock Annual for $7, though.

Why do fans pay exorbitant prices for old Movie posters or promo materials?

Why would advertising posters or brochures for firearms be any different?

I've actually got two, so I should be good.

You guys are lucky, I’d love to find one but have never seen one for sale. Clearly I’ve been missing the listings...$10!! I thought they were pretty rare.

Thanks for the lead! They had two of the early Annuals that I haven't been able to find... Almost rounded out the collection.
