Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

Look what we've found - a MISB Skulls Eye Schooner on eBay!

MISB 6286 Skulls Eye Schooner

MISB Skulls Eye Schooners are quite rare now and tend to fetch quite high prices on eBay, sometimes exceeding the US$500 mark.  They could be considered even rarer than the equally popular 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, which enjoyed a Legend re-release back in 2002.

If you have a high disposable income check out the eBay auction page or visit our Mint In Seal Box Madness thread where you'll find dozens of Mint In Sealed Box Pirate LEGO sets waiting to be purchased!
