Best Thing I Sold on eBay 2021

 Here is one of the "Best Things I Have Sold on eBay" in the last couple of months.  Typically I sellregular run of the mill items.  Mugs, hats, clothes, vintage collectibles. Bread and butter items as most eBay resellers would say. 


There are rare occasions that I am lucky enough to find rare "unicorn" items in the wild.  The first item is a softcover book by Popcorn Sutton.  If you watch Moonshiners on the Discovery channel then you would know all about Popcorn Sutton.   


He was an ornery moonshiner that several of the cast members on the show learned the moonshining trade from.  A legend according to those that were his students. 


I found a softcover book written by Popcorn Sutton and SIGNED by him as well.  After a little research at the thrift store I knew it was coming home.  The past sales reflected an unsigned book that had sold for around $300 give or take.  There was a signed copy on Amazon listed for $1300.00t



I listed mine for $1200 OR BEST OFFER.  It took about 3 months and several lowball offers but I finally accepted an offer for $700.  I shipped it insured and signature confirmation.  The transaction went smoothly and the buyer left positive feedback. 


The thrift store that I found the book at only charged $0.10 a book.  And it was half-price day.  My cost was a NICKEL. 


The "unicorn" sales like this are few and far between. But they are definitely fun!
