Matchbox Monday: Results of the 2013 Matchbox Gathering Charity Auction and photos of the Mattel-donated Prepros...


As was the case last year, we have been asked by Matchbox Gathering organizer Jim Gallegos to post the results of the Charity Auction held at the Gathering to benefit Rachel's Courtyard in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  As is good practice, Jim wants to make sure all is transparent and all is accounted for, and publishing the results on a public site is part of that.

But we don't want to make it a total bore for our readers.  You can undoubtedly see what items brought the most interest, and gawk at some of the surprising prices paid, including one by yours truly.

But we thought we would post the photos I took of the Mattel-donated preproduction models.  A little later today we will be posting the prepros in the Lamley collection, and will explain the appeal these have to many collectors, but in the meantime, enjoy the results and the photos.  Many of these are quite cool...

  1. Hello
    It's true that 2014 Matchbox list will have the Volkswagen Race Touareg and the Amarok? Is it the Race Touareg 3 who won the Dakar?
