Five Wicked and Very Expensive Items (and Other “Stuff”) Sold on eBay

What are the most expensive items sold on eBay? If you want to make a fortune, you usually have to be creative, and some of the best salespeople are now turning towards online marketplaces seeking for greater profits. This is where eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) makes its grand entry.

Browsing through eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY), I have come across loads of different –and amazing- things for sale, from Britney Spears’ hair for $1 million, to an island on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia for $790,000, to used breast implants for just $1. You want it, you name it! It will most likely be on eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) already.

Wonder how much does a lunch with legendary investor Warren Buffett cost? And what about a man’s entire life? Or a whole town? Find out below: in this list, we will look into five weird, great, and definitely cool things sold on eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) for big sums of money.

Most Expensive Item Sold on eBay: Lunch With Warren Buffett

Sold for: $2.62 Million


Every year, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett hosts a lunch, which is auctioned in order to raise money for the Glide Memorial Church, a San Francisco church that works feeding those in need. As you might figure, there are loads of people interested in having lunch with the one-and-only investment Guru; so several auctions have already surpassed the $2 million threshold.
The record was set in 2011, when an anonymous bidder offered $2.62 million for the lunch date. What’s interesting about this record is that the bidding had originally closed at $2.34 million, which was not an all-time high. Once the auction closed, the winning bidder raised his offer to establish a new best, surpassing the $2.6 million reached in 2010. In 2009, Canadian investment firm Salida Capital had paid $1.68 million for this privilege, and in 2008, a Chinese fund manager had expended $2.11 million.
Mr. Buffett usually spends several hours with the winner and seven friends discussing the topics of their choice, typically, at New York’s Smith and Wollensky steak house. The only off-boundaries subjects are, of course, Mr. Buffett’s future investments -if he did share this information, we should definitely start pooling our money for the next lunch!
