Until the last hundred years or so, paper was expensive and not something you would just randomly throw away … it’s only in the last few decades where paper is not worth the paper it’s printed on … sure, some things on paper are not cheap. If you have around $30 million, you can buy the Magna Carta coming up for auction … or for around $135,000, you can buy one share of Berkshire Hathaway (aka: one stock certificate) … so paying $246 for a cardboard photo of the Blu Ray McQueen CAR might be considered a bargain.
You do also have to pay for shipping but you do get a $3.50 CAR as part of the deal.
It is nice looking but $250 nice? Well, I’ll let you be the judge. Though with three days to go, what’s it going to top out at? $500?
Clearly, Mattel should start selling an $11.99 make-your-own-blister-pack kit so people can find a cheaper solution than spending $300 to house their Blu Ray Car.
If you haven’t gotten one, they are still taking orders andshipping the Blu Ray CAR.
NOTE – I have NOTHING to do with this eBay auction 🙂 If I had the time and design skills, I would charge you no more than $99 to house your Blu Ray CAR 🙂 and I would throw in shipping for FREE! 🙂 , I swear!
