Men's neckties.

I am attempting to construct the World's Largest Ball of Ties.


I'm calling upon the help of the Magic Café, because...well, I think you folks would be willing to help me out a little bit.



I you have any old ties...you kow stuff from the 70's and 80's that you just can't use anymore because they are just so ugly...I want them.



I need as many as I can get my hands on. And with 29,000 Café members, I think I could break a world record.


Please contact me via PM.


Thanks,
Brett.

How large is the current world's record ball of ties?


Any stats on how many it takes etc etc?

Could be cool.

The Only "Ball-O-Ties" is around 80lbs and aproximatly 3ft. around.
It was in the former American Dime Museum Collection.


Mine will hopfully have over a thousand of ties when I'm finished.


I don't have any pictures yet...But you can see the actual "Ball-O-Ties" at http://www.dimemuseum.net .

Probably not that many, 350-400?

I couldn't see the Ball O' Ties on that website.

Sorry I didn't know that Dick Horne had taken down the photos!

If I come across one that I may have taken of it, then I'll post it.

The answer... YARD SALES! Average tie price 25 cents.

Best,

Tim

Around here yard sales are in the EARLY morning... I'm usually going to sleep when the yard sales start.

I could always check Goodwill.
