Whoops! Seems like I was wishful thinking, there.

Well, <rub rub> I picked one up at the '94 Nationals for $3.00. Got
lucky on that one. One of the vendors had boxes that were marked
"Everything: $3.00". Started rummaging through it, started to give
up - actually told myself "after the next kit, I'll leave" - turned
over the next kit, and Voila! That was the biggest want (need?) I
had at the Nat's. Heck, I would have been happy if I hadn't taken
any awards after finding that!

However, I would guess that had the vendor known what he had, I
probably would have paid a lot more for it than $3.00.
