Default 1961 Estes Catalog Sale on eBay

OK, this isn't "kit" collecting, but ...

Wow, I'm going to have to wait until retirement, so I can dip into the 401K to get one of these. ($847.79!)

Indeed there are serious rocket memorabilia collectors out there. I'm amazed at the price, but then again, how many of these have you seen in the past 5 years?
