I knew him from Bidstart too. Sad news indeed. My condolences to his family and friends.
I just heard today that Jim passed away back in September. He and I go way back, as he was an approval buyer from me from the days when I advertised in Linn's. I brought him over here from what was then Bidstart. He was an avid collector of the world, and he had made plans on moving to an assisted living community in October. I found out when a shipment was returned to me today from his wife.
