5 Weirdest Items Sold on eBay
Amy | On 31, Aug 2015
As we know, our favourite online auction website “eBay” was created around 20 years ago in 1995. It was created in order to help business-to-consumer and consumer-to-consumer e-commerce. eBay is a multi-billion dollar enterprise that deals with sale of millions of different items yearly! But did you ever come across to any weird or creepy and untraditional items? Well, today we are going to show you the weirdest and most creepy items ever sold on eBay! Believe it or not what we are about to show you are real cases!
Let’s get started:
F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet
In February 2004, an owner of an F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet, wanted to make some cash and so decided to sell it on eBay. The starting bid was $1,000,000. The auction said that the new owner will have to spend around $40,000 a month for just 2-3 hours of flight time because of the fuel consumption, and other mandatory expenses. As soon as the FBI heard about this auction, they contacted the seller and notified him that he can only sell the plane to an American citizen who is residing in the United States. In addition, they told him that he could not leave the U.S. airspace either. And no, the auction did not reach a winning bidder.
Britney Spears’s Hair
In February 2007, after Britney shaved her head in a saloon, the saloon put her hair on eBay with a starting bid for $1,000,000 hoping it would bring in a fortune. But, since this is a violation due to eBay’s policy, the person’s hopes for becoming a millionaire was-cut-short!
This happens to be our favorite. Somewhere in May 2006, New Zealand was put for auction by an Australian citizen. The starting bid was $0.01 AUD and the bid reached $3000 before eBay took it down for violating its policy.
The original Hollywood sign
The Hollywood sign built in 1923, was put for sale on eBay somewhere in November 2005. The bid started at $300,000 and, believe it or not, the sign was sold for $450,400.
4 men from Australia
Four friends from Australia auctioned themselves on eBay in 2007, guaranteeing a heck of a weekend. The men promised fun, laughs and beer, which would be a part of an exceptional weekend. The starting bid was at $1,300 and was successfully sold for 1,300 AU bid.
