Any idea what the first item we ever sold on eBay was?
Back in 1998 After buying some things on eBay I wanted to try to sell
something. I asked my mother to take me to a garage sale, as she was and
still is quite the, "Queen of the Yard Sale". It was late in the afternoon
on a Sunday and she commented that it would be tough to find anything good.
We found one and I found a bucket of old car parts in a bucket. There was
what appeared to be a speedometer for a car or truck. Though it was old, it
was still in the box and only 5 bucks! I took it home, borrowed a digital
camera and listed it for $15, (Back then eBay only had basic auction
listings). Several days later it was up to $150, and then $280 and buy the
time of auction close is was up to $521 and shipped to England! Turns out it
was a Halda Speed Pilot which is a vintage collectable British Car Racing
gauge. That was really exciting being that I was only a kid and I have been
an eBay junky ever since. Makes you wonder what is in your garage?
