This isn't as amazing finding a Dark Emperor at a flea market, or getting a 153P for $1 at an antique store, but I wanted to share a pretty cool Craigslist find.

 

Attached File  muscles.png   283.93K   24 downloads

 

I contacted the person who listed it and arranged to get the figures. It ended up being 205 M.U.S.C.L.E.s plus 3 bootlegs for $5. Of those, there were 37 flesh, 131 class C, 34 class B and 1 class A. (41P)

 

The woman selling them ran an 'art camp' for kids and said that they had been played with for years. With a history like that, I was surprised at the overall condition. There are no stains, almost no sun damage, no markers on the feet and the orange and green figures are all still pretty bright.

 

The fact that the woman didn't know what they were coupled with the condition, the percentage of uncommon figs and the presence of non-M.U.S.C.L.E. sculpt boots makes me wonder who originally owned them and how they ended up at a day camp.

 

 

Thank you

Nice!

A few years ago I found a sealed 10-pack on CL for $20, and not too far off from the area you searched in.
I haven't checked that site as often as I used to, but it just goes to show that cool things pop up the more often you look!
