I purchased my prized HC exactly one year ago. My search actually started 16 months before that (fact checked myself and realized I had added 8 months to my story..I've been know to exaggerate stories sometimes)..and truth be told I had seen other HC committees come up during that time but they were really hammered....or its possible some decent ones came up and sold that I missed out on. Just last week there was one for auction on ebay..i wanted to bid on it at the end but i was out driving around and missed it...it sold for only $1200..i was bummed about missing it. It was in fairly rough shape and had some patchwork done to it...but $1200!? I would have still paid that for a hammered HC Committee.
