Taken from Athlon Sports' 2004 baseball preview. . .

So perturbed was one Yankee fan in August 2003 that he actually put pitcher Jeff Weaver -- not his baseball card, not his jersey, not his used bubble gum (a la Luis Gonzalez), just Jeff Weaver -- up for auction on eBay. He described the ineffective mid-season acquisition as being "in fair-to-good condition, hardly used and showing minor wear" and added that he was "acquired by mistake in an attempt to keep him from wearing red socks. Must sell ASAP. Will take offer from qualified bidder... talent not included (missing talent might be located in Detroit; buyer's responsibility to procure; no guarantees)."

Another former Yankee, Jeff Nelson, once sold bone chips from his elbow on eBay, but apparently selling body parts isn't allowed. And yeah, Luis Gonzalez of the Diamondbacks sold a wad of his chewed gum for something like $10,000. I've also heard of souls, entire California towns and minor league hockey franchises being sold on eBay, too.

Search for "empty box" and look how many people sell old empty boxes, and how many people actually buy them.

I remember a few years ago, before the Xbox was released, someone put an Xbox Box up for sale on eBay. It was just the promotional box from the stores, but people didn't realize it and the price, before the auction was shut down by eBay, got up to something like $400.

I can't believe people actually bidded on Contra code written on a paper napkin. Not only that, the guy is making serious profit off of it. But eh, I remember someone sold an XBox Box for $380. The girl who bidded was so pissed because she paid for it. The auction even said "For all those thick-headed people out there, this is just the box, not the system itself."

But eh. Like Einstein said, "There are two infinities. The universe and human stupidity. I'm not sure about the former."

I once made a bid asking people to pay for my bills. So it's not that impossible. I also tried to sell nothing once but was shut down.

Which makes me mad. How do you shut down these dumbasses' so-called products?

I heard about that. I heard she was like 14 or something.


Actually, the auction continued outside of e-bay and the deal eventually went through. She was 18 or 19, though, and needed the cash to pay off her university debt. There was an article on the BBC website about it a while ago.

Ha, Bleys found the one I found. Damn. Now I have to think outside the piece of wood ordeal. I also found such things as "how to regain your virginity", a cure for the common cold, lots of people selling money and alas, no lint. But my personal favourite, going only by the titles as I can't get further than that at work, is this:

$8 for shipping on a spring?

$7.95 shipping on everything but the button and the Canadian Tire money.

Serves the fools right if anybody bids on it.

Loony BoB
04-08-2004, 05:07 PM
Since I'm in the UK, I'm still debating on which lucky girl or boy I'm going to send it to.

EDIT: It's also quite tempting to bid on that bent paperclip, now that I've seen the item information in all it's glory.

EDIT: Oh, by the way, keep in mind I found Bleys' piece of wood and was about to post it as a part of this thread before I found out that he had already linked it and before I realised that it was him. It was a genuine find. Bleys knows what I want. I want Bleys' wood.

EDIT: Alright, who the hell is wilkinb? >=|

Citizen Bleys
04-08-2004, 09:42 PM
I don't think he's anyone from EoFF. He's frelling daft to bid that much for a piece of wood. Just like someone else I could name but won't.

Oh, and btw, BoB, if you win the sucker, I'll make an exception to the shipping rules and send it to Scotland. Just because I know you, though.

EDIT: This guy (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=4161168032&rd=1) wins. That's even dumber than the stuff I listed.

I heard about that. I heard she was like 14 or something.

No, she was 18 and she was a lesbian. She needed to pay off her student loan.

She atchally went through with it and got 18,000 grand, but had to spend the night with some 65 year old man. Not pretty.

I looked at this clump of dog hair auction (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=4161168032&rd=1) and the "Buy It Now" price is $30. I hope someone actually buys it. It will confirm a lot of my ideas about people in general.

Does anyone remember that "haunted doll" someone was selling on eBay? They claimed they bought it at a flea market or something, and their cat died a few days later. All this bizarre stuff started happening, so they threw it away. Buuuuut, it appeared back in the house the next morning. Riiiight. The doll was pretty creepy-looking, though.
