Top 10 useless things bought for a lot of money in the XNUMXst century
• Useless things can turn into golden hens overnight. Here are the top 10 items that found the right person at the right time and were sold for crazy money in the XNUMXst century.
10. Queen Elizabeth II wedding cake
• Yes, you read everything correctly. In 2013, a piece of Queen Elizabeth II's wedding cake was auctioned off for £560.
• Given that 66 years have passed since the wedding at that time, this piece of cake is hardly good for digestion. And the price for it seems extortionate. But what kind of sacrifices will you make for the sake of Her Majesty.
9. Used pregnancy test by Britney Spears
• Presumably, this test was discovered by a cleaner in the room of one of the hotels in Los Angeles, where Britney was staying. Although there is no direct evidence that the test actually belonged to the singer, it was put up on eBay and online casino GoldenPalace.com bought it for $5001.
8. Sacred Sandwich
• In 2004, an unusual lot appeared on eBay. It was a piece of fried bread with cheese, on which, according to its owner Diane Dyser, the image of the Virgin Mary was imprinted.
• Deiser kept this sandwich for more than 10 years, and during this time it did not spoil (at least outwardly) and even helped the woman win 70 thousand dollars at a local casino. However, the need forced her to part with the "sacred sandwich."
• More than 100 bets were made on the lot, and as a result, the GoldenPalace.com online casino bought it for $28.
7. Justin Bieber hair
• In 2011, Justin appeared on the popular Ellen DeGeneres Show in America and offered her a lock of his hair on the condition that she auction it off and donate the money to charity.
• A small bun of the teen idol's hair was sold for an absurd $40. Any amount given to charity is worthy of praise. But given that the winning bidder almost certainly wasn't going to donate his hard-earned money, it's likely that Bieber's hair was his target.
6. Cane with the ghost of grandfather "in the load"
• Children are always afraid of something. Who are spiders, who are dark, who are all at once. And one six-year-old boy in 2004 began to convince his mother that he was haunted by the ghost of his recently deceased grandfather. He believed that the ghost was tied to his old cane, which was still not thrown away.
• To dispel childhood fears, the boy's mother sold the cane along with the ghost on eBay. The lot price was $64. The buyer of the cane was the online casino GoldenPalace.com, which collects and collects rare and bizarre things.
5. Diamond Denture
• You won't surprise anyone with a Hollywood smile. But a prosthesis created from 156 diamonds and gold of the highest standard is still possible. Such a luxurious item, made in one of the clinics in Dubai, is estimated at 153 thousand dollars. They will not be able to chew, and this is not his task.
4. Banana glued to the wall
• These days, any item can fall into the category of contemporary art. So it's no surprise that an ordinary banana held up to a wall with a strip of duct tape sold at auction for an incredible $120. And this is not some special fruit with jewels hidden inside, it was bought in a regular supermarket.
• The author of this masterpiece is the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, who specializes in the genre of installation and is famous for his provocative work. I wonder if the banana instillation lost its value after being transferred to a new owner?
3. Scenario "Breakfast at Tiffany's"
• In 2017, Christie's auctioned off actress Audrey Hepburn's personal belongings, fetching over $5 million. Among these things was the script for the film "Breakfast at Tiffany's", which was sold for 700 thousand dollars.
• Given that anyone could download a copy of the script from the Web, the buyer was essentially paying for the sebum Hepburn left on the pages. It's like buying high-end "water from the bathtub in which the streamer bathed."
2. Copy of Super Mario 64
• In many ways, this game set the course for XNUMXD platform games, and to this day it still regularly appears on "best games of all time" lists.
• But Super Mario 64 is no longer young – it's over 25 years old and available in re-releases and ports. This casts doubt on the need to purchase a $1 sealed Mario cartridge, even though the box was in perfect condition. Prior to the start of auction at Heritage Auctions, the lot was valued at a modest $560.
• Undoubtedly, for the video game collector, this item is one of the most holy grails imaginable. However, all he got for one and a half million dollars was a plastic cartridge, a cardboard box, and a quick start guide.
1. Window with frame
• This is the most expensive window in the world and perhaps the most useless thing sold for a fantastic amount. The whole merit of this window is that Lee Harvey Oswald, the assassin of American President John F. Kennedy, once stood behind it.
• A collector from the Netherlands purchased this item on eBay for $3 million.
