If Mr. Bond was the founder, the eBay seller is liquidating for his heirs. The molds have been auction posting in regular increments for months. I just found out the details 2 weeks ago when I bought the Sparkie. The seller Ron in Marshalltown, IA is a really nice guy generous with information.
Been seeing some unusual discontinued, maybe never in production molds being offered by this seller - no collar Walleye Jig on now.
