An eBay seller is selling off their Jai-Alai program collection and it’s not Mark Kaminsky from St. Pete, Florida, it’s another seller going by the eBay seller name of wheresrusty_612. We interviewed wheresrusty_612 and here is what he had to say.
Currently, this seller has (23) Jai-Alai program listings from (10) different Jai-Alai frontons in the USA and this is just the beginning of the reduced auction price Jai-Alai listings according to wheresrusty_612. Auction prices all start at $9.95 for the opening bid on these gems which are among the best quality one can find, ranging from excellent ones to Mint ones. Note there is one set of two programs, a two-day tournament, which has a $19.95 opening bid price for the pair. Current listings include programs from Bridgeport, Dania, Daytona, Biscayne/Miami, Brevard/Melbourne, MGM LV, Milford, Ocala, Orlando and Tampa.
Seller wheresrusty_612 has mostly specialized in sales of greyhound racing programs, thus his eBay name is based on the name of the mechanical rabbit “rusty” from some of the dog tracks and the disappearance of greyhound tracks from the American landscape.
The seller says he doesn’t mind taking a loss on any of his Jai-Alai programs and has told SayHiLi.com he just wants others to enjoy the programs. Wheresrusty_612 has in fact actually donated hundreds of programs to some former and many current Jai-Alai players. He says he has about (80) more high quality Jai-Alai programs yet to list and if there isn’t much interest in this first batch of programs, he may donate the remainder of his collection.
Shipping is a real discount for these gems too as the shipping cost is only $3.95 for any program auction won to the lower 48. Programs are even in new acid-free comic book holders with cardboard backings. Sales to foreign countries are not allowed by this seller. One catch that one needs to be aware of is there is NO combined shipping discount for multiple auctions won allowed by wheresrusty_612 since the min-bid is so highly discounted (it’s mentioned in the detailed info for each auction item). Be sure to check it out if you are looking for really nice historical programs. They look great framed and on the wall of your sports den or man-cave! Note this seller is one of ebay’s most reputable sellers and has even been known to include freebies to many buyers.
