Default HORRORS of War.... The start to my auto Collection. the one that ebay ends everytime

well after seeing this card pulled from another member of this forum I thought it was very interesting historical auto, but knew I'd never be able to get it because of other collectors of this set who have bigger and deeper pockets then me.......

...Then after reading a epic, 5 page, critically acclaimed (maybe thread on here talking about it), thought it would be pretty neat to own.



...and watching its journey from its original owner, on the forums here, to the second....on and off ebay,,,,,



...and then by coincidence ,a good customer of my local LCS (the second owner) obtained it,,,,,,


...well, he tried to sell it on ebay once with a super Super Super high BIN with 20% of proceeds going to the Jewish fund (which btw, is the ONLY way ebay will allow such items to be sold with them not ending it)...still with an outrageous BIN it received offers but no takers.....

...Then,twice more he tries to list on ebay without any donations to charity, only for it to be taken down twice again,almost immediately,,,

...well over the weekend the customer eventually gave up and wanted some $ to move on to another collecting adventure so i waited him out and yesterday we we able to agree on a price and Now its the start of my horrors of war auto collection,,,,,

....anyway...


it is....the



,,,,,,love it or hate it,,,,,,,



Heinrich Himmler auto

Good for you...congrats! Sounds like this card ended up in a good home, and I'm happy to hear it's the beginning of what I hope will be an outstanding collection!

Thanks for sharing. Please keep us updated as your collection grows.

Nice pickup. I was contemplating on throwing out an offer but got caught up in high end hickey busting. Love this set.

If you want to start a rogues gallery of Horrors of War autos I still have Saddam Hussein. BTW I sold Audie Murphy for $1000 for those who have asked.
