25 Of The Weirdest Things Ever Sold On eBay

Cornflake Shaped Like Illinois

Cornflake Shaped Like Illinois

Back in 2008 a sale was made for something meeting this very description. For $1,350, the buyer got to add it to their weird traveling museum.

Elvis Presley's Water

Elvis Presley's Water

Water from a cup Elvis was meant to have sipped from back in 1977, sold for $455 in 2004. I mean, Elvis is great and all, but that water's going to evaporate, right? Unless...

ET Breakfast Cereal

ET Breakfast Cereal

in 2004, a piece of Nutri-Grain breakfast cereal was thought to look so much like ET that it was put on eBay and sold for a little more than one thousand Australian dollars.

This Guy's Forehead

This Guy's Forehead

Well, you couldn't buy his forehead exactly, but you could pay to advertise on it with a temporary tattoo. Thw winning bidder spent more than $37 thousand for a temporary tattoo to be put on Andrew Fischer's head. The company that forked out the cash was SnoreStop.

Ghost In A Jar

Ghost In A Jar

Apparently, there was a dude in Arkansas who was so tormented by a ghost he had in a jar that he just had to sell it on eBay ....for just shy of $56,000. I don't know who is crazier...him or the buyer.

The Meaning Of Life

The Meaning Of Life

Someone from North Carolina (who remained anonymous) auctioned the meaning of life back in 2000. It fetched them $3.26 they didn't have previously.

Baby Naming Rights

Baby Naming Rights

This one is perhaps somewhat objectionable as it involves a certain level of permanence where an innocent person is concerned, however, we'll reserve our judgment until after we've heard the story, shall we?

in 2009, an unemployed mother of 6 chose eBay to auction off the naming rights of her seventh bundle of joy to the highest bidder. It netted $6,800 and thankfully, the highest bidder had more sense than the mother and simply gave her the money, letting her name her child.

There's no word on whether she named her little one Pepsi or not.

Guinea Pig Armor

Guinea Pig Armor

There's a few things weird about this one. Firstly, it's guinea pig armor. I mean, that should be enough to push up the strange-factor. Secondly, the first bid that came in was for a mammoth $24,300, however, the seller withdrew the sale before relisting it and selling for a little over one thousand dollars.

Turns out the cash would help fund the not-for-profit guinea pig rehab and rescue crew, the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue.

Britney Spears’ Pregnancy Test

Britney Spears’ Pregnancy Test

What is wrong with people?!

Anyway, a Canadian radio station auctioned a pregnancy test they claim was found in a waste paper basket in Britney's bathroom at an LA hotel in 2005. It netted five thousand - just a fraction of the price of the ghost in a jar.

New Zealand

New Zealand

An Australian man tried to sell the country of New Zealand in 2006. Spoil sports eBay closed the sale when it was sitting at around three thousand Australian dollars.

This Guy

This Guy

UK man, Ian Usher, was heartbroken and totally over life in general following a divorce, that he decided to sell his life. All his stuff, his house, and somehow even his job, was on offer and netted him around $400,000 with which he went on a bucket-list trip and went to live in a remote part of the Caribbean. He now works as an author and public speaker.

I think this is my favorite on the list so far....

Casey Anthony´s Halloween Mask

Casey Anthony´s Halloween Mask

Casey Anthony was in 2011, charged and then acquitted of murdering her two-year-old daughter. For some reason, a latex Halloween mask of her face was sold on eBay for about a million dollars. Seriously.

Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts

A dude from Britain sold his left over Brussels sprouts from Christmas dinner for a bit more than the equivalent of $2000 American dollars. It was all for cancer research, thankfully.

Bridgeville, California

Bridgeville, California

Somebody bought a whole town for $1.77 million (interestingly, still way more expensive than the country of New Zealand) in 2002. He wanted to give it a bit of a facelift but then realized that would require way too much effort and so sold it soon after.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Shaped Like The Virgin Mary

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Shaped Like The Virgin Mary

Florida. 2004. 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich that sort of looked like Jesus' mom. $28K.

There's really not much else we need to tell you about this one, is there? I mean, I'd sell my sandwich if someone was dumb enough to buy it. Next...

Meteorite From Mars

Meteorite From Mars

This one is actually pretty cool. While there are a whole lot of meteorite pieces on Earth, just a small fraction of them (a little over one hundred) are Martian, and so this one; Zagami, sold for a considerable $450,000 in 2003.

Coelopleurus Exquisitus

Coelopleurus Exquisitus

....is the final name of a new sea urchin species found and then put to eBay for naming rights in 2006. I would have called it Bruce.

Combat Jet

Combat Jet

 An F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet was auctioned on eBay in 2004. The owner reckoned he claimed it from a scrap heap and listed it for a cool $9 million. It didn't get sold.

The German Language

The German Language

In response to the growing concern of English becoming prevalent in Germany, the German Language Association auctioned the German language on eBay. That'll show 'em!

Soccer (Football) Team

Soccer (Football) Team

Tranmere Rovers F.C. was placed on eBay in 2009, by Dornoch Capital Advisors. The only problem was that it was done without the team's actual owner, Peter Johnson, being informed. Johnson took to the team's website to ensure everybody knew that it was not for sale.

Lunch with Warren Buffet

Lunch with Warren Buffet

The irony of paying good money to lunch with someone who already has a whole bunch of it... Then again, it is for a good cause.

Anyway, each year a lunch with Buffet is auctioned on eBay with the proceeds going to charity. What is exceptional about the 2010 edition is that an unknown bidder won with $2.6 million!

 

Golf Balls From The Gut Of A Snake

Golf Balls From The Gut Of A Snake

Four golf balls that had to be surgically removed from a carpet python were auctioned in 2008. The balls netted $1,400 Australian dollars.

Space Cremation

Space Cremation

Well, the actual cremation didn't occur in space but the words "space cremation" roll off the tongue so well that I couldn't resist.

In 2013, a Russian dude who supposedly had a relative going to the ISS took to eBay to offer the release of someone's ashes in space, through a waste gate where the urn carrying the ashes would be released in to the planet's orbit.

Britney Spears’ Hair

Britney Spears’ Hair

Well, we've already done the pregnancy test so why not her hair?

The salon responsible for cutting all of her her off during that troubled time in her life a few years ago, decided they'd make a quick buck or a million and auction her hair off on eBay. Unfortunately, eBay ruined their plans and removed the sale.

This Dude's Wife

This Dude's Wife

Back in 2008, a man from the UK reckoned his wife had been unfaithful and so simply decided to sell her on eBay. Seems reasonable...
