Only 7 or 8 out of the scheduled 36 old floodlights sold today in the auction, all went for exactly the same £200 which was the minimum reserve , auctioneer said they didnt set the reserve and couldn't go any lower than that.
Interest ran out by the 8th so the rest were pulled from the sale.

Not so much devaluing the product...more like over pricing the product.

Well that’s £1400 minus fees into the January transfer budget then.

i was thinking similar, registered for the auction and thought i would go upto £100...from the moment the auction started he said £200 minimum and wont accept anything less , struggled to get interest and i got the impression those happy to pay £200 just looked at each other and thought there's 36 to go at so why bother with a bidding war, you have the first one, i'll have the second one..etc.

Why put a reserve on anything that has no value to anyone apart from a Town fan?

Firstly, I knew nothing of this auction, and secondly, who in their right mind would pay money for this junk?!!

It has nostalgic value to a lot of town fans, they can own a piece of the club's history forever. Who wouldn't want to own part of the floodlights that were there even from their very first match? They just don't want to pay a lot for that experience.
