Je suis... gobsmacked
My wife noticed the above eBay listing yesterday. An eBay seller offering the recent issue of Charlie Hebdo for 2,000 Euros. Further searching revealed this one:
This morning I checked eBay to find actual sales - not just offers - and found...
That one actually sold for over $400. So I pulled a complete listing of "sold" items ranked from highest price. At the top was...
$20,000, with 117 bids from a variety of bidders.
Some of this may be fakery, with false bids from fake accounts. When I rank the "sold" items by lowest price+shipping, I see quite a few being sold for $1 or so.
