I'll admit it, I grabbed the last one.  It'll be nice lamp to try out in my new 100W GE 201-SA, and I don't have this phosphor in any wattage yet.  Previously I'd lit a few 100W lamps briefly on 175W ballasts (without letting them fully warm up), but I wouldn't want to risk it with a vintage lamp.  Thanks for pointing out the listing, @joseph_125.

Ahh, glad to see a few of us here got one. I did a double take when I spotted this listing in my recommendations on eBay today.

Yeah I wouldn't risk using a 175w ballast on a vintage lamp. Either a real H38 or even a M98 with ignitor removed I'd be more comfortable it with.

This would probably look beautiful in that SA-201 NEMA too.

Congrats on your first /W lamp Tim! ;D 8)

 Save that for AFTER it arrives intact !! Fortunately it's coming Via. USPS so there SHOULDN'T be a problem . Hopefully I didn't just jinx myself !!

 @ HM1000 : There were 5 total : I got 1 , Joseph got 1 , Patrick got 1 and someone else got the other 2 . Hopefully it was someone here on LG !

That was me who got the two...wasn't trying to be greedy...I just like to find two of every lamp if possible.

I just glad that all 5 went to collectors , NOT someone who just needs them for general use in some parking lot or something !!

Same here, I'm glad they all went to collectors. I don't plan to run this much anyway so I only bought one. Plus it's a BT25 Lifeguard which I surprisingly don't have yet. Looks like mine should be here by the end of next week. Mid-week if I'm lucky.

How rare are these /W lamps exactly, and what are the chances of more popping up?

Probably none. I am hoping to find one in the future

ON LG FOR 2 YEARS! Please don't ask to meet up with me, as I am still living with my mother. Don't send me items either please, thank you!
LED street lights are bad. Some look good though. HID is better.
Please, watch out for the future. It's not looking good. Loves instruction manuals of any kind!

From time to time a listing with a single /W lamp will show up on eBay. A listing with a bunch of them like this time is a bit rarer.

Hopefully! Although I suppose if it was a /DX I'll still keep it.

I'd still be pissed as I specifically asked the seller if they were /W instead of /DX lamps . I don't know if I'da spent that much on a /DX .

I would be too TBH but it's a bit of PITA to return stuff cross border so I usually don't bother with it.
