Own a winners trophy!

Post by Hiltono » Sat May 07, 2005 4:46 pm

Sorry if you guys think this is spamming or something, thats not my intention. Oli here, S8 winner, just to let you know I'm auctioning off my knightmare winners trophy! Figured there maybe some serious nuts out there with the cash to spare and I'm in a rather tight financial spot at the moment so don't all mock the starting price, if nothing else I'm just interested to see how much it could sell for. Anyway thought you guys might be interested to know, so there you go :)

Seems like a bargain - the free postage that is...

OK, maybe just a bit steep - we had a FrightKnight prototype a few moths ago that sold for £300 I think.

As a matter of interest - what does the small plaque say?

Yeh I know, like I said I'm not really expecting it to sell, it means too much to me really but thats basically the point where I believe common sense will overtake nostalga and pay off the student loan/debts etc.. The plaque says: Oliver Hilton, Knightmare, Champion, 1994

Well due to a change of heart (and my increaing desire to import a PSP) I've dropped the start price right down to actually get some interest, I reckon £250 will just about numb the pain of loosing it :)

£13 postage cost - what a rip off! ;)

At least the price is a bit more realistic now...

You're doing this to import a PSP? Oh dear :( All I can say is, if it were me and I'd done something like this, I'd be kicking myself two or three years down the line when PSPs will be ten-a-penny and the unique Knightmare trophy is knowhere to be seen :(

Keep The Trophy, No Matter how bad your debts are that trophy symbolises one of the greatest acheivements you could possibly acheive! Winning Knightmare is no easy feat. And it probably makes for a great ornament. *Lady puller no doubt?*

My Advice, stop spending money on non-essentials. Just food etc. Get the PSP when you can afford it. But hey, thats just me.

I think we discussed before that a Kignhtmare trophy is timeless were as a games console given as a prize would get dated.

I think the same applies here...

I know what you mean, to be honest the PSP is still abit of a pipe dream :P If I get enough to pay off my last 3 months rent and 1K outstanding council tax I'd have to see what was left over :)

The fact we've all offered you advice to keep the trophy at least proves one thing . . .

None of us have any money!

if a prototype sold for £300 just imagine how the real deal could make ::)

i wouldnt bother getting a psp, handhelds are useless, i got a gameboy advanced on day 1 and i played on it once, handhelds just dont intrest me any more, id rather get one of those apple i pod things that hold thousands of songs,

KEEP THE TROPHY!!

series 4 trophy kicks ass but 1 per team, the one your selling was given to each person per team (1 each), series4 trophy was thicker and looked alot better, mind u beats going home in 1989 with a knightmare coin :)

You know something, I wouldn't sell it either. Tempting though it might be.

BTW, regarding handhelds, I got a DS, and with swapping a few old PC games, I cut the price down a hell of a lot. Just find some you don't play anymore. The PSP sounds like it's going to be a rather poor portable gaming platform due to poor battery life in comparison to the GBASP and DS.

Off topic slightly, I know, but I'm trying to find you an alternative solution to selling your trophy!
