  • authentics 1/64

    no disrespect to anybody why do they buy these 1/64 cars and then turn around and try to sell them i don't understand the lure of these cars i have a few jr autos in them that's about it

    For the same reason they buy anything in the toy aisle and try to sell it, they know that they can turn a profit off of it, because someone who wanted to buy it somewhere and couldn't find it will buy it if that's the only way they can find it. I'm fairly certain I've seen a little bit of every wave between the various Walmarts and Targets around me, but if you don't get them when you see them, they're gone again the next time you go back and it takes a while for them to restock them. But to be honest, for as much as NASCAR seems to be "failing" or "dwindling", as well as this hobby, if you talk to some folks, those Authentics cars seem to fly off the shelves.

          Right, but I believe he's referring to scalpers, not necessarily somebody helping out another collector by buying extras for folks who can't find them. I've seen these marked up to like 12.99 on ebay just for one, which is more than it costs to buy a car out of the regular Lionel line. That doesn't even include the 2016 Darlington wave, which goes for some crazy money, since they were so sporadic and hard to find.

          Maybe I took that wrong, but that was what I took from the original post.
