    <P>Just checking out ebay for some goose decoys and found just the one I am looking for! Current bid is $17,500 <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/eek.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>! Estimated to go for $35,000-$45,000 <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/eek.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>. I guess this is one of the things that actually holds it's value? I could think of A LOT more to do with that kind of jack!!!&nbsp; Oh yeah - that is for just one!</P>

    <P>Okay, so tell me what makes it so special? Is it the age, style, maker or a combination of things? I am not into the collectable stuff so it is all new to me.&nbsp;Heck I am not so sure I know what a restle is? I do know that I have probably never seen one. </P>
