    Am I reading this right? The last bid: $860.00 for 26 stupid stuffed animals.


    hey, I have about 50 stuffed animals in a box somewhere from my kindergarten time. Some with authentic drewl on it from yours truly. I'll start the bidding at 1000$

    I don't think my ex-wife was in the Black Market Beanie Trade..but then again, I didn't know she was having an affair either!

    I was about to say I wouldn't buy that stuff for $10 but I quickly changed my mind. Buy the stuff for $10, and sell it for $900 to idiots.

    Holy $$$$! Now I have tuition! Okay, who wants to make fake beanies with me!? Seriously! OMG, we could make so much money! and he could not be charged by U.S. Criminal law because replicas or anything of the sort are not illegal(unless claiming authenticity) and he also said that the bidders purchase the goods under the condition that they may not be authenticate. WTF matters if it is authenticate or not? Really, I don't care if it was stuffed by an american male or some lady in china making them for $2 an hour. BTW, what do these sick people do with these beanies? Do they think they bring them luck? Do they sleep with them? Or... I know... it's some kind of underground beanie cult run by $$$$heads and losers in baggy jeans that are pulled half-way down their pants and skateboards or something...

    I met someone who created a cult like that....I stayed faaaar away from them. I think it would be fun to burn them, but selling counterfeit ones would be a lot more fun.

    I remember that phase. I still have over 200 hundred stuffed in a box in my closet. I had all those stupid ones from the elephant to the Princess Diana bear doll.

    if that is a real humphrey he has got then someone is going to get a bargain at $824 for the lot as humphrey alone can raise well over a $1000
