Yesterday we told you about a NES that was on eBay for a minimum bid of $35,000. The seller, ronald3868, said he needed the money to pay his bills and that the NES was the only thing he had left that meant anything to him. You probably read this and thought, "Good luck, buddy." Good luck indeed; the NES sold for $50,000.
Yea, you read that right. Who knows if he is actually going to get the money, but if he does he's either going to be able to buy another hundred or so NESs with that extra $15,000 dollars he got or he's pulled off a really fantastic con. Either way, home boy is rolling in it now. I believe an astonished slow clap is in order for Mr. Ronald3868.
Up next: A Sega Genesis will sell for $75,000 because it really reminds a guy of his dead mother and he has to pay for her funeral bills.
