So there have been plenty of video game collectors turning to eBay to dump their collections for a price, but this guy has 30 years of video game history for sale— thousands of games, dozens and dozens and dozens of consoles, dozens of boxed collector’s editions, peripherals and collectibles. Starting bid is $550,000. You’ve got to see it to believe the massive scope of this collection.
I’m a little jealous and star struck by the individual who is selling a massive collection of SNES games on ebay. A single copy of all 721 SNES games ever released in North America, with boxes for $25,000. Several years ago, I sold my huge collection of about 500 NES games on ebay for much less than that, but most of the carts were in shit condition.
In 1992, McDonald’s had a limited edition “McJordan Burger”, named after Michael Jordan. The sandwich featured a variant on the normal McDonald’s barbecue sauce, which they called “McJordan Barbecue Sauce”. Ah, who cares? Apparently someone. Someone cared enough to buy a whole bottle of expired McJordan barbecue sauce from 1992 just just under $10,000.
Hardcore video game collectors will pay big bucks for all kinds of incredibly rare pieces of video game history, but $55,000 for a yellow NES Legend of Zelda prototype cartridge? Not with a prototype version of the game, but a prototype version of what would later be a shiny gold NES cartridge.
You can find a lot of things on eBay, including stupid non-existent things. Today, eBay laid down the law on people selling mystical and religious non-tangible or worthless items. No longer will you be able to buy things on eBay like prayers, magical spells, charms, curses, hexes, magic potions and work-from-home scams among other things.
LOOK WHAT YOU’VE DONE EBAY!
I guess someone’s got to be in this sort of thing. But be warned that if you remove it from its packaging, it’s going to lose some of its collectible value. Doubly so if it’s covered in bodily fluids.
I really don’t know what else to add here… it kinda speaks for itself. Only three hours left to bid, and it could be yours for $7000.
In the early 1990s, long before the iPhone or the iPad, Apple unveiled a phone called WALT (Wizzy Active Lifestyle Telephone) that at the time, was the landline phone of the future. This touchscreen marvel never went into production, but now a prototype WALT phone found its way on ebay for $8000.
Just look at that sexy, sexy Ackbar painting. And it can be yours for only $100. Imagine how great that will look in your Star Wars themed love chamber.
Yes, it’s the entire novel Moby Dick typed onto toilet paper. I even half-heartedly thought about bidding until I realised that the rolls are 10 years old. No toilet roll would last that long in my house.
Back in 1993, this guy won an episode of the Nickelodeon game show GUTS, and now is selling his coveted aggro crag trophy on eBay. One of only 126 ever made, this thing would look great on your shelf as you lie through your teeth about having been on GUTS. And no, he’s not selling his gold medal. You’ll have to lie about “losing it in a move”, you morally corrupt bastard.
If you’ve ever suspected for any reason that Nicolas Cage might be an Immortal, I present to you exhibit A: A photograph on eBay from 1870 that clearly shows Nicolas Cage. CLEARLY. There can be no other explanation.
Despite the fact that it’s only a matter of time before Casey Anthony gets naked in front of a camera, a guy on eBay is selling his very own one-of-a-kind original Casey Anthony nude painting. Right now there’s only one bid at $2.99, so this amazing piece of contemporary criminal history could be hanging over your mantle for about the price of a large roll of duct tape.
