It came. It disappeared. It returned.
A Microsoft Xbox360 which appears to sport the autograph of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is back up on Ebay, maintaining its original asking price of $1.1 million. Thanks to Funny Business readers who alerted me.
I first reported on the autographed Xbox in August. Someone claimed that Palin signed his console--he even included a photo of him presenting her with the Xbox-and then he tried to auction it off for big bucks, just days after Palin's surprise resignation announcement. The console got a single bid, for exactly its $1.1 million asking price, when Ebay delisted the item. Ebay felt the console's high price raised a red flag, and so the item was removed until the autograph could be authenticated and a system could be set up to pre-qualify bidders. At the time I wrote that "both sides are working to re-list the item."
