So - some big news on the Golden Grail front in the last couple weeks! Shortly after the second Golden Grail auction ended, I was contacted via PM by one Jeff Echtenkamp, who was very upset that his debut cardback run was ruined, and who took the initiative in contacting the seller of that second auction to see if there were any others. The seller dug through his storage space and uncovered a THIRD Golden Grail! Jeff sent that off to AFA, and shared some photos when he got it back.

Good on Jeff, putting forth that effort to fill that hole (and end his mental torment)!. While his figure was off at AFA, the eBay seller listed a FOURTH Golden Grail. This time as part of a three-figure lot.

As you can see, the third auction ended just slightly higher than the second - close to $3K! And I was very curious who lucked out on this one. It turned out to be Chris Whitlock, who shared photos with me over PM before limelighting on Facebook. But Chris was ambitious. He started talking to the seller, and asked the guy to scour his storage and see how many more he had left. That number: TWO MORE! And Chris dropped some big cash on the spot to secure both. Here's Golden Grail 4, 5 and 6!!
