    I honestly think that's a pretty impressive catalog this year. There are the neon 70s and 80s boards, the requisite Da Cats, a beautiful Bing Nuuhiwa and Bolts, there's also some really rare art/paper. And there are, imo, many boards that are of serious significance.

    1) The amazing condition 9'6" Quigg;
    2) The Curren and Hobie vintage North Shore 11'+ guns
    3) The Brewer/Trent recreations--including one in balsa--are insane.
    4) The Phil Honolulu....agah agah agah (i.e. Homer Simpson drooling)
    5) The BK
    6) The Gordie
    7) This Diff from '67

    PS: Oh yeah and the Hynson/Gale....

    Oh that Diffenderfer is Hot!

    Weird to see a Crest Belly Board from my neck of the woods in the line up. $350? Really?

    I can't believe that no one has bid on either the balsa Brewer/Buzzy 11'2' gun or the 10'6" Pat Curren balsa gun. Not exactly cheap at $5k minimums, but those seem like solid investments. At a loss that with an hour+ left, a Da Cat is already at $7500 yet nothing on the above two balsa beauties.

    <update> the Brewer/Buzzy balsa is finally getting some run: it's up to $9,500.
