Grand Theft Ebay: Influx of GTA V Collector’s Edition Goodies on Ebay
I threw my $150 down on a Collector’s Edition of Grand Theft Auto V early since I knew it’d sell out fairly quick. Picked it up at midnight to see around 10 people who got one as well. I’m assuming a ton of people didn’t expect it to actually sell out though, as Ebay’s got a massive amount of Collector’s Edition goodies up for grabs for ridiculous money. And when I say ridiculous, I mean ridiculous.

Take the New Era 9FIFTY snapback for example. It’s got a Los Santos logo stitched in front and a GTA V emblem on its side. It’s just a hat. And it’s going on Ebay for as high as $95, with actual listings with bids averaging around the $30-$40 area, though I have seen some hats with bids as high as $50 and some pretty decent knock-offs for $33.
The safety deposit bag from the Collector’s Edition is running between $20-$50, but it doesn’t seem to be a popular item with bids. This item is a safety deposit bag with the GTA V logo on it and a key to lock/unlock the bag. I honestly haven’t found a use for mine yet, but if I (frequently) sold drugs, I guess it’d be a cool bag to use? I don’t tend to keep wads of cash with me to need a lockup…
The blueprint map of Los Santos/Blaine County that was available for both the Collector’s Edition and Special Edition versions of Grand Theft Auto V are, as expected, the cheapest item to purchase online right now. I’ve seen a couple go for as little as $2 and as high as $10. Weird — I thought it’d be more sought after since the surfacing of the blacklight messages.
What’s absolutely blowing my fucking mind right now is the amount of money people are willing to spend on the DLC that was included in the Collector’s Edition, which gives players more tattoo options, another garage, an atomic blimp (which was the regular Special Edition of the game, but is going for way cheaper on Ebay), some car power-ups, faster charging ability gages of each character, characters from previous Grand Theft Auto games being available to use online (when it launches), and a couple of other bits. There’s a listing of the DLC for Xbox 360 currently at $89 (8 bids) and the same DLC selling for PS3 for $59 (24 bids!). This DLC is selling for insane cash.
And then, of course, we’ve got the Collector’s Edition of Grand Theft Auto V itself. The entire package, including the safety deposit bag, blueprint map, DLC, New Era snapback, and the steelbook game, all neatly packaged in its big box, is going for as low as $150 to as high as $1000. Chances are, if you’re bidding on a Collector’s Edition, no one really wants to go that much over $150. Those who really want this package are safely bidding up to almost $200.
People ask me if my $150 purchase for GTA V was justified. Was me hashing out an extra $90 for the game really worth it? Absolutely. I wear my Los Santos hat everyday (that’s me, pictured above) and I love having a giant empty box that says ‘Grand Theft Auto V,’ on my living room coffee table. It’s like my Gucci watch of video gaming.

The Rarest Pokemon Card Ever

In 1997, this card was given to six people as a prize of the Pokémon Card Game Illustration Contest held in Japan. It was never printed in English and five of the cards were reported to be in circulation, while the sixth is held by the Official Pokemon TCG blog itself.

It reads:

We certify that your illustration is an excellent entry in the Pokémon Card Game Illustration Contest. Therefore, we state that you are an Officially Authorized Pokémon Card Illustrator and admire your skill.

And right now, one of the owners of the card is asking for $100,000 for his mint condition Pokemon Illustrator card on Ebay. Imagine the money you could have if you owned this!

Griff’s Hoverboard On Sale for $13,000

Hollywood Parts put this authentic hoverboard up on Ebay, for those of you who really want to own real Back to the Future 2 props. Griff rode this 20 years ago in 1989, back when the film came out (or…did he technically not ride it yet…?) in theaters, so the board does have minor scratches in it. But it could be yours, for the Ebay low-low price of $12,995, or best offer.

A Little Bit on the Neo-Geo Side: Up for grabs on eBay is an oh-so-close-to-complete collection of the 149-game Neo-Geo MVS library. The lot includes every game except for Mr. Do and comes with shockboxes (homemade MVS cartridge holders and art inserts) as well as mainboards and even some posters. You’ll have to bring your own cab though.

A Little Bit on the Char CD Player Side: If you need to go all out after buying that Char helmet, check out this CD player, designed after his Zaku mobile suit. It’s originally from a mail-in-your-points-type program from Bandai, but one is on eBay right now. I was going to bid, but now it’s up to $35 plus $15 shipping. But it is a great collector’s item.

I was never big into Beyblades as a kid, as I was too busy playing Yugioh and Pokemon, but regardless of what your childhood preference was, you’ve got to feel pretty bad for these kids.

We are selling 8 Beyblades, 2 of them light up. As you can tell they are not happy about this! They have been using their bathtub as a “battle arena” and Beyblades + Bathtub = Destruction!!! With the metal ones they managed to scrape the enamel off the tub, take a chunk of tub out and break off the soap holder. SO if you “win” this auction DON’T play with in a bathtub!!! We have recieved a quote of $500.00 to replace the tub, some tiles, and soap holder + labor of course!  They had approxamently $125.67 in their piggy banks that will be going to toward the cost. We will use the profit from this auction towards the balance and then it is onto other toys! Good Luck bidding!!!Paypal only.

Retro Legend of Zelda Halloween Costume is BEYOND Hideous.
There’s too much disturbing-ness going on here for my brain-nugget to absorb. The mask is creepy enough, but the freaking shirt! Why would Link ever wear a shirt featuring himself fighting a lion/minotaur dude!? WHY!? IT JUST DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!!!
But then again, if I was as badass as Link, I’d probably rock shirts of myself fuckin’ monsters up like it was nobody’s business. Monster fuck-uppin’ business.
