PSA: Bobbie Burns The Ski on eBay

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Just wanted to let the collectors out there know about some old relics now appearing on eBay

Cool skis, Red The Ski that aren't TRS's? Never saw Scott boots in that color combo. Interesting Scott boot bags and the Mother Karen's Gaitors.

The red THE SKI look like they used to be yellow. My guess is they have been painted red. If you scratch the squares you should see red not yellow.

I noticed that too, odd. Did you see the price if the yellow/blue pair on eBay. Wow.

The blue/yellow are in nice shape and am not too surprised to see the price they are at but would be surprised if they go higher.

 

Might as well post a link to a third pair of THE SKI.

I've never heard gaiters called waders.. Do they come with a fly rod?

Hey Joal, Thanks for that keen eye . Upon a closer look I see they were painted.

Now I find myself in a weird position. I feel I'm misrepresenting them and I should pull the auction, but how. Oh well, I'll figure out something .

Meh, IMO if your eBay pics are clear, there's notice to bidders. If it were me I'd add a bit at the beginning of the description pointing out the scratches. Maybe someone here could opine on whether it's misleading--

You did the right thing. The original description innocently referred to them as the racing ski which they are not.

 

Side note, I think this came up somewhere before but the red THE SKI are known as trs and/or tsr. Why the difference?

 

 

 

From the red catalogue 1978

You also need to change from Mother Karens waders to gators. They ain't for fishing', son.
