$99 K for Tom Brady sand? Who am I to judge? Tom Brady retires (maybe). If someone wants to pay a small fortune for the SAND he was standing on when he made the video announcement, why not? It’s their money. Disney announces the closing of Splash Mountain? Why not pay $10,000 for a bottle of Splash Mountain water?
eBay 20th Anniversary
I can’t deny the fact that the invention of eBay is nothing short of brilliance. ANYTHING you want, you can probably find on eBay. When I needed an important piece of equipment for some home recording, I found it on eBay.
As eBay celebrates it’s 20th anniversary, I got to thinking, what are some of the more ridiculous items you can find on eBay? I COULD sell my personally autographed Simon LeBon microphone stand to the highest bidder. Simon, the lead singer of Duran Duran was at an event I was hosting, and was kind enough to sign my mic stand. The only problem is, that I can’t authenticate it. I don’t have the accompanying papers needed to prove it was actually Simon who signed it. Maybe I can contact the signature guy on Pawn Stars to authenticate it for me.
So, let’s take a deep dive into the more ridiculous items sold one eBay. If you want to drop 99K on Tom Brady sand, I won’t judge you.
