Hardy Krüger (DE) - 24 pigeons - 2.054 EURO / pigeon
The preferred favorite by Hardy in his auction was The One and Only. A hen straight from the Olympiad pigeon Black Pearl. Mouth-watering offer. Various buyers fought hard to get this hen. The observant interested person has no doubt seen that the father was born in 2008, which means that there are not many more opportunities to come. The lucky buyer eventually paid EUR 13,600. Hardy auctioned a total of 24 pigeons that went to an average of 2,054 EURO, an excellent result.

With an offer from, among others, children Tevez x Miss Torres, brothers Miss Torres and many others, it could hardly be anything but a class auction. So it was with a total return of 63,000 EURO.

Jos & Lars Vercammen (BE) - 12 pigeons - 2,717 EURO / pigeon
An auction of Jos & Lars Vercammen quickly stands out because of the dark checkered pigeons from the Mustang, Elektro and Samsung lines. This time they managed to break this through with a pure white called White Sugar. This half-sister of the 2nd National Limoges drew almost all the attention and ended up with an amount of 3,600 EURO. This did not make her the most expensive in the auction of Jos and Lars.
