The Matchbox European Gathering of Friends has come to a close in Leipzig, Germany. I have done a few features on the event, including the charity auction.
I haven’t gotten a ton of details on how the event went, but I am sure Dirk will share them with me. Abe Lugo from the Matchbox Team was there, and presented some sneaks. Hopefully I will have some footage from that presentation at some point. I also asked him about the Charity Auction. It is always interesting to see what the donations fetched. I don’t know all, but I know the two pink G Wagons made by Matchbox that were sold at the auction went for close to $1000 each. Why? Because outside of a few made for Convention workers, that is all there are. So three models, plus a super rare fourth. Here is a look:
Orange and Green are still available, and completely worth getting. The links are below:
