These eBay auctioneers became inspired by the increasing popularity of the weird, bizarre and crazy mystery auctions selling on eBay, like the Virgin Mary grilled cheese that sold for thousands of dollars.
(PRWEB) September 2, 2005 -- Up for bids on eBay by CreativeWriters, is a
bizarre auction featuring traveling western Nocona boots with a collectible
Harry Potter doll. If you are not familiar with traveling auctions, the
tradition is that when a buyer wins, they relist the item to sell to another
buyer to see how far the traveler goes. The traveling item collects signatures
of ebay winners as it passes on, which increases the value. The last traveling
mystery pants auction reached the eBay Pulse and was won by the very famous
Golden Palace Casino.
With the latest haunted craze on eBay, it seemed the appropriate time for CreativeWriters to add a unique, vintage object as an unsolved mystery which belongs in a museum or "Ripleys Believe It Or Not." The box was acquired through a deceased antique collector's estate. This object of curiousity is custom made with a glass front and was buried in a dark place in the early 1960's. It had been religiously wrapped and padded for protection, as well as hermetically sealed to protect the treasure within from the elements of the air! This is a once in a lifetime find which is sure to bring fame and fortune to the new owner. This prolific piece has an immortality that will live on forever.
With less than 5 days to go, this auction has received over 9000 hits. You can visit the auction by going to
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5610197936, where you can view the details and place your bid. CreativeWriters will post clues about the mysterious box to help bidders figure out what the object is. The auction will end on Sunday, September 4th, at 18:54:14 PDT. If the auction ends without reaching the reserve price, the item will be relisted.
