Machinery Pete's 16/31 planter prices

GREG PETERSON 12/23/2010 @ 1:54pm Greg Peterson writes "Machinery Pete" column for Successful Farming magazine and appears on the Machinery Show on RFD-TV, talking about trends in the used equipment market

Numbers fill my head.

Say a number, any number, and I'll have my own quirky connections to that particular number, much of it sports related. My wife and two daughters think it's a disease. Could be. Numberitis: a condition defined by semi obsessive correlations between numbers and people/events. 

So go ahead, pick a number. 16 you say? Ok, here's what I think when the number 16 pops into my head.

  • Sixteen Candles (John Hughes movie from 1980's)
  • Joe Montana (QB from 1980's, 49ers, no. 16)
  • Jim Plunkett (QB from 1970's, Patriots, Raiders, no. 16)
  • Bobby Clarke (Philedelphia Flyers hockey, 1970's - 1980's)
  • Gary Player wins 1972 PGA Championship: key birdie on 16th hole Sunday

Now give me another number. 31? Sure, no problem. Here's what I got:

  • Baskin Robins (31 Flavors ice cream)
  • Richard Washington (Forward, UCLA basketball, 1973-76, no. 31)
  • Bo Ellis (Forward, Marquette basketball, 1975-77, no. 31)
  • Benny Barnes (Safety, Dallas Cowboys, 1970's, no. 31)
  • New Year's Eve (December 31)

Auction sale price numbers also fill my head, have for 21+ years now. 16/31 Planters jump to mind. I've seen a few sold on recent sales. Couple quick clicks in our Machinerypete.com web site's "auction results" database and here's what I find:
