Horncollector Has Some Drums to Sell
Imagine my surprise to see some familiar (drum) faces resurface on eBay after having been recently sold to Horncollector.
The three drums currently back on the market are:
1. "CAW" (stenciled) Heavily Tacked Drum eBay item no. 270235708752 (asking $995; sold 3/16/08 for $860 as eBay item no. 300206047745) was the subject of an article in this blog titled, "The Real Deal Heavily Tacked Drum on eBay Auction":

So, if you missed your chance the last time these beauties made their appearance on eBay, they're back with reasonable Buy It Now prices. We're not sure whether Horncollector has second thoughts about stretching beyond horns into the drum market. Perhaps he'll write us and let us know his plans. Meanwhile, he unloading these treasures and, for my part, they are very collectible.
