Well, it didn't take long, for someone in Greece to try to sell his/her London 2012 Olympic torch.

My treasure!

I recently obtained a Vancouver 2010 torch , and OMG, I love it to bits! Its my first torch. I actually felt light headed when I held it up (and struck a pose, behind closed doors.... , lol), I neve

The official torch. Found it in a pawn shop, got it for 350. Had the box, holder and all the paperwork too.

^^ Well it's not a matter that I couldn't afford the real thing, it's just that it's too excessive spending for just one torch, when I could get 3 good torches (i.e from the Olympic editions I like) out of that.

Fake bidders. The sellers set up a second auction that says the money will go to charity. That one stands at £3000 odd quid. Looks like they have been getting abuse all day about it. Hopefully the more torches that are out there a more realistic price will be achieved. Vancouvers were going for about £1000 if I remember rightly.

I recently obtained a Vancouver 2010 torch :D , and OMG, I love it to bits! Its my first torch. I actually felt light headed when I held it up (and struck a pose, behind closed doors.... ;) , lol), I never relised how big it actually is.

Questions for other torch owners...

How did you feel when you obtained your first torch?

How big is your collection ?

and whats the one torch you want (if you don't already have it) above all others?

My dream torch would have to be a Sydney one, solely because its the only one I have seen in real life, when it passed through my town of Katherine,NT back in 2000 and for the obvious reason, its Australian. My first games too.

My aim is to have all the torches from Sydney 2000 up to the current day.... I guess its because I don't have any emotional attachment to the past torches or games before then. Other then that, London's one would be awesome.... but I guess I am going to have to wait a few years (that, or win the lotto or rob a bank... ^_^)... when the prices come down.... damn, I wish I had the money to burn... for now the Vancouver 2010 torch will have to satisfy my olympic torch mania.

Hahaha congrats! Yes i do love the Sydney one too also like Torino i don't own any so can't answer those questions :)

Thanks, Man! Its going to take me awhile to save up for another one.... I was meaning to ask you, why do you have the bid logos from 2012 in your signature? Just wondering......

But yeah, definately tempted by a few of the other torches on ebay at the moment. Though I guess being an Olympic year, its torch season on there.

To show the bids that were for this year. Plus not a huge fan of the 2020 ones but after London is done and dusted i'll probably put them up.

If i take weeks to decide to bid on a bid book costing 100 bucks i can't imagine how long it would take for me to buy a torch. Yes being an olympic year is good more torches and sometimes cheaper. Good luck if you look for more
