There's no business like show bid-ness!

Lindsay_lSometime last week, the sock (that’s right, a sock) worn by the cameraman whose foot Britney allegedly ran over was reportedly sold on eBay for more than $1,000. Disappointed you missed your chance to bid? No worries, as celebrity paraphernalia is never in short supply. This week, you can purchase the actual Mercedez-Benz convertible driven (and crashed) by Lindsay Lohan (pictured) for a mere $120,000. Behind the wheel of this dream ride, you’ll see the world the way we imagine LiLo sees it, through cracked glass. Don’t let your current anonymity put the anti-lock brakes on your budding celebrity: buy this car today, sit back, and set the cruise control for your own road trip of fame, misfortune, and frequent traffic-law citations.

Okay, I wouldn’t break my bank account to buy Lindsay’s car. But I’ll admit, eBay has quite an addictive quality, and I find myself wondering if, perhaps, I really need a personalized Patrick Dempsey screen print pillowcase. Or considering where I’d display a $400 bust of Harrison Ford as the legendary Indiana Jones. Or deciding if I’d use a Fight Club bar of soap for practical or decorative purposes. My own fascination notwithstanding, I’ve never actually bought anything off eBay, but I’m wondering, what’s your biggest entertainment-themed purchase? Do you look at your life-sized wax replica of Wayne Newton and think that maybe you should have saved your money for something a little more practical? Like food? Or rent? Or are you very happy with your decision to get that Star Trek Worf Starfleet wrist lamp?

    Christian Bale’s Newsboy Union card. But that wasn’t on eBay, that was a fan club auction for one of his charities, back in the day of the Baleheads. Le sigh. Our boy’s all grown up and star-ry.

    My husband gave me a Frodo doll for Valentine’s Day. That guy really loves me!

    I bought a Britney Spears light switch cover for 99 cents as an “ironic” touch to my dorm bathroom.

    My dad sent me to get toilet paper at the store, so I bought him Anne Coulter’s book on clearance.

    I love Ebay and pop culture, so the quesrtion is what HAVEN’T I bought there? Here’s my personal favorites:
    Pete Tomarken’s suit- The host of “Press your Luck” sold off all the suits he wore on the tv show. I still have the canceled check for $28.70 (signed by Mr. Tomarken) wear the suit with pride.
    Minmei Walking Doll Kit- From Robotech, this is as the hardest to find Robotech/Macross item of all time!
    Warriors replica Jacket-for Halloween last year.
    Wolverine movie replica claws-these look so badazz! Real claws with invisible wires looked just like the movie!
    Original Flash Gordon movie poster- Foolish Earthlings, who’ll save you now?
    I’ve also got a HUGE Transformers collection and a series of several hard to find figures. Most of it’s from Ebay. Do I regret any of these purchases? Only those for things that couldn’t resell later and those I was forced to sell (like my Mint on card complete set of Welcome Back Kotter figures).

    My single most expensive entertainment-themed purchase was a set of four helmet replicas from The Return of the King.

    Collectively, though, my complete collection (39 and counting) of Justice League Unlimited action figure 3-packs add up to a LOT more.
