No Takers on $80,000 Bigfoot, 2 Days Left

Clifford LaBrecque standing next to his Bigfoot Replica he commissioned for $9000 

"It took three months to get it from my head to his (the sculptor's) head," -- Clifford LaBrecque, 73, of the fiberglass-and-fur model of Bigfoot

Fans, you may remember Clifford LaBrecque from our earlier post, "Man Shoots Bigfoot, Makes Bigfoot Mad, and Then Builds a $9000 Statue". Yes, this is the same man who in 1977 was determined to shoot Bigfoot one fateful night in Des Moines, Iowa.

The event left such an impression he was determined to commission a replica of what he saw. Looks like he's trying to make $71,000 on his $9000 investment. The replica has been available on eBay for a starting bid of $80,000 since July 16th, with two only days left there have been no takers. 

A starting bid of $80,000? Perhaps Mr. Labrecque does not understand how auctions work. 

For $80,000 you would hope he would provide the shipping (at least) -- not so. As the description of the product clearly indicates you have to pick it up in Arkansas:
In 1976, after years of study and research, a young man named Clifford LaBrecque undertook a challenge that stunned the Bigfoot world. Mr. LaBrecque built one of the best detailed "museum quality" models of Bigfoot. How he did it is a mystery that will probably never be known. One look and it shouts this is the "real thing"--eyes that follow you, and hands, fingers, and toes, are all in great detail. This fantastic piece of work has been stored for over 30 years. This is the first opportunity you have to own Bigfoot. It can be a tremendous attraction for showing this part of American folklore.

All inquiries about this piece should be directed to Clifford LaBrecque at 1-870-291-1863.  THE ITEM LOCATION IS IN  ARKANSAS TO BE PICKED UP THERE.
Another interesting line is:
Mr. LaBrecque built one of the best detailed "museum quality" models of Bigfoot. How he did it is a mystery that will probably never be known. 
Fortunately for you, fans, this is not a mystery to Bigfoot Lunch Club. In 2011 The Baxter Bulletin printed an article describing exactly how he came upon the fiberglass and fur replica:

"It took three months to get it from my head to his (the sculptor's) head," said Clifford LaBrecque, 73, of the fiberglass-and-fur model of Bigfoot he commissioned in 1976 at a cost then of $9,000.
