The size of the auctions at Aston’s just seems to get bigger every month. Among the near 800 lot-strong November 6 sale was plenty of die-cast and related ephemera though, if you looked for it. But the main item to catch our eye was a huge wooden shelf unit for Mattel Hot Wheels, which included an impressive 50 first type cars, each with red racing slicks. The estimate was a comparatively reasonable £200-300, but the batch went for an astonishing £4,000!
