Man Auctioning His Colossal Collection of 1,000+ Vintage Cameras on Ebay
Brian Cue from California is set to sell his collection of vintage cameras on Ebay. It took him more than 50 years to collect them and he himself lost track of the exact number of units in his possession. An estimation of 1,000+ pieces of cameras, lenses, and various accessories are in his storage, but it could also be possible for these old beauties to reach over 2,000 separate pieces.
His collection consists of all the major camera brands (Canon, Nikon, Rollei, Yashica, Ricoh, Polaroids, Kodak, Fuji, Pentax, Petri, Pax, Mamiya, etc) as well as different kinds of camera bodies (SLRs, RFs, TLRs, medium formats, point-and-shoots). Most of them are still in mint condition and are in good working order.
You don't think it could reach 2,000+ pieces? Check out these photos:
If you are a very rich collector or a camera museum owner, Brian Cue priced this mountain of cameras at $34,999 (approx. S$43,253) – and that's just the starting bid. If you want to buy the cameras outright it would cost you a whopping $49,999 (around S$61,789).
