Are these Prices crazy high? And his other bottles also. If not I'm going to start selling my bottles on ebay? LEON.

Been watching for awhile & first time I've seen many of those posted. I got 3 different Guyette Cobalt Blue Hutches. I always thought & always been told they are $100 bottles. If he can get $3k for these 2 I'll sell my 3 for $4,500? LEON.

I always hate coming across his listings. He is basically trying to sell bottles that he doesn't want to sell. And, apparently, he gets lucky sometimes. The ruby red Bordens and Detroit ten pin really are worth that much, and the Coca-Cola lot probably went to the rich Saudi sheik. Odds are there is one, two, maybe a couple really serious collectors in the area that want his stuff, and he makes them pay top dollar. Not the kind of friend I would want, that's for sure!

I'm going to have to dig up some of those Tellers Ten Pins. I keep finding lots of blue shards around here. I bought a few bottles off him in the past which I think I got reasonably with low opening bid. Don't know why he list them so high now? LEON.

He is a good guy and he is at every show I have been to and he is the first person to advertise for local Michigan clubs and bottle shows.

I think that in this hobby it is all about supply and demand and he gets good prices for a-lot of bottles. I thank him for that because driving the prices higher makes bottles more valuable and desirable which is very good for people like me. I dig a ton of bottles from other places in Michigan that I would rather trade off for things from my area.

I just found out why all of the sudden these 2 guys have been listing there bottles at such a high opening bid. Seems the rich Qater Sheik has been buying them. LEON.
