Light blue Mushroom Phone on eBay
« on: March 23, 2015, 06:23:16 PM »
Bidding for this phone started at $29.99 and quickly shot up to $250. It will be interesting to see what it goes for. I don't think this guy really knew what he had until the price shot up so fast!

Here is the link:

Wow, if only that were a BiN, and if only I had caught it early! I love how he has the light hood on backwards (although it's a million times better than losing it altogether!)

These must be rarer than I once thought..


Anybody recall the guy who found a similar phone in the garbage at his office?

Yes!

It was almost identical to this phone, except it was a year or so earlier, and it was a whole lot cheaper!

The blue ones go for big bucks. Just watch for yourself!

I'm just so perplexed as to why someone shot it up in the first days of the auction!

He might as well of made it a 3 day listing!

Such a spectacle to admire.

I'm sure the seller is wiggling in their seat about now! :D :D :D
