Hey Mike,

I was the high bidder on one a while back where the reserve was not met. 
It was being sold by a guy who parts out a lot of Midgets on ebay. His 
ebay user name is 49ziggy. Anyway I asked him what his reserve was and 
he said he usually gets $250 or more for a ribcase. I don't know if that 
is the going price or just what this guy was accustomed to getting.
