People who pay for things like this are the kind of people who have a lifetime history of stalking

$100K for something that has absolutely no way of being authenticated and can be easily forged.

I am in the wrong line of work.

Despite ebay being around for almost 30 years now, we're still pretending bid amounts actually mean something?  For fark's sake, these stories are even lazier than the regular "what would you spend your winnings on" local news bits when lottery jackpots get high. At least for those they have to go through the effort of sending a reporter to the gas station across the street to talk to someone.


Not to mention, here's what you get when you go to the listing page of the sand:

Yeesh...what a moron.

I have some sports memorabilia at home, but at least they are cool items....and didn't pay a small fortune for them.

/Like autographed pics of Mike Ditka and Alex Karras.
//My mustache wall of fame.
///Need to get Dan Dierdorf and Steve Raible.

Any pre-bids on the Tom Brady human suit when he sheds it to take his final form?

But, even people with too much money and would want to buy expensive sports things.... I mean... "why?" on this one.... ok, you bought (a small amount) of the sand he was "maybe?" standing on... one can go scoop up another 1,000 more cups just like that.. I could see maybe if that was verifiably the ONLY sand he was standing on, but, it clearly isn't... one could legitimately make thousands of cups of that sand and auction them off legitimately (that is not discounting people just selling any sand as "the sand that he stood on").
