This shall be my last entry into the Crayola Crayon Collectors Blog. I am retiring from my job a Boeing soon and plan to use my time for other interests. Thanks to all those that viewed my blog and I hope some were able to use the information to build their own Crayola collections.

Just a mini rant against an Ebay seller that will remain nameless. Bought a 6 pack of Crayola Jumbo crayons in a green and white box, which after some investigation, is one of 16 packs like these from a Crayola classpack. Instead of what I purchase, I received an 8 pack of jumbo crayons and an 8 pack of regular crayons. Sent the seller an message about the wrong items and received a refund. I would have preferred the crayons I wanted instead. Ordered another set of the jumbo crayons in the green and white box and yesterday, got the correct box of crayons. These were shipped in a bubble mailer and the box was smashed and 3 of the crayons were broken. Instead of contacting the seller again, I replaced the 3 broken crayons with 3 from the free 8 pack I had previously received. Guess I can say I got what I wanted. I am going to be nice and not leave any feedback for the seller.

These first showed up on Ebay right after Memorial Day, the first 6 packs from the Target Pick Your Pack series. The seller wanted $3000 for a buy in now price and started an auction with a 99 cent opening bid. I was the high bidder at $43 but the reserve was much more than that. The seller relisted them at $1500 for a buy it now and an auction with the starting bid set at $375. The week passed but there was no one willing to bite. For his third listing, the seller took a gamble. 99 cent opening bid, no reserve. I patiently watch the auction till the last few moments. With only a few seconds left and the high bid at about $32, I placed my bid of $90. Turned out I didn't need to go that high, I won the auction at $41.27. They now belong to me, I have been looking for these for a long time.
Here they are on my desk. This leaves only 3 more boxes that I need to have the complete Pick Your Pack series. I still need Awesome Autumn, Spring Fling and Summertime. The wait for those to show up some day on Ebay continues.
