Just released: The list of auction items for the upcoming M.C. International Matchbox Gathering of Friends...

Jim Gallegos just sent out the list of auction items for the upcoming Gathering.  I will have a couple of photos of the Mattel items shortly, and then all the items later in the week.  This is quite the lot.

The instructions for bidding are included below:

Instructions for the online auction are as follows: Items are listed as GT and the number.
Bidding Instructions for the Route 66 Gathering of Friends Charity Auction.

  1. Go to If you are not a member already, you will need to sign up to bid (signing up is free and quick - just click the “Register Free Today” ribbon in the centre of the screen, pick a username and password and fill out the form and you’ll be ready to go).
  2. There will be a Route 66 Charity Auctions logo on the upper left side of the homepage - you can click on that to be taken straight to all the charity auction listings. 
  3. Make sure you’re logged into the site to bid. Then just enter your max bid, click the “Bid Now” button and confirm your bid in the popup. We encourage you to bid early because our system supports auto-extend, so if bids are placed in the last five minutes of an auction, a further five minutes are added to the running time to discourage sniping.
