Oiva Toikka Cube
« on: February 02, 2013, 01:11:31 PM »
Here is a cube by Nuutajarvi designed and signed by Oiva Toikka - 1982 limited to 2000. it was bought very cheaply as it has a small chip. I know these were part of a series and have a name. Not by my books now so can't research.

Hi Adam,  I always thought they were simply called 'Annual Cube' but I could be wrong. I will see if I can find any other name for them,  but I know the Egg series were just called 'Annual Egg'

Thanks Rosie. This was cheap because of the bit of damage. I could never afford the price of a perfect one lol.

Hi Adam,  don't forget to acknowledge help from the GMB in your eBay listings...it adds credibility and lets people know we exist.... :)

Thanks Rosie. I will in future. I wasn't sure it was ok to do so as I didn't want to break anyone's anonymity on the board as it were. I have really only started selling last few months. Mostly items I don't want or bought for selling.

Hi Adam,  no probs...just an acknowledgement that help was given by GMB,  no particular member to be mentioned.  It is just something we do if we list an item that was identified for us by members on the GMB. It often helps to draw in new members as well,  so a good thing all round.  :)
