No one buying $1 million Sarah Palin-signed Xbox 360

Shares

One man's trash is another man's treasure. But this man's treasure... well, let's just say people aren't lining up to buy it. An Ebay user trying to sell a Sarah Palin-autographed Xbox 360 has been unable to find any takers.

Then again, that's probably because the starting bid is $1.1 million. The auction has been relisted numerous times ever since December of 2009.

The man's name is David Morrill. A couple years ago, he drove more than 2100 miles for the opportunity to meet Sarah Palin in person. Commuting all the way from Alberta, Canada to Wasilla, Alaska, he wanted the trip to be memorable.

So he brought along something to be autographed that no one had ever brought before - an Xbox 360. At the time, Palin said it was the most extravagant thing anyone had asked her to autograph.

Putting it up for auction at $1 million once, to get noticed, is one thing. Or if he gave a "Make Offer" option, we could understand seeing people jockey for the ability to own such a unique Xbox. But based on his continued relisting of the item and inflexibility with the price, and the fact that he's required people to verify every bid, we're led to believe this guy actually thinks he can get over a million dollars for this. Now that's baffling.

We'll expect to see the pigs from Angry Birds start flying outside our window if this thing actually sells for what Morrill is asking. Want to prove us wrong? Then head over to the auction and bid now. Kill a moose while you're at it.

    I'm glad there are no gamers who are actually crazy enough to pay for an Xbox 360 signed by the most openly insane replubican to ever live.

    I love how there's 15$ shipping on it.

    Not even if it were signed by Jesus

    I couldn't be paid to take that Xbox.

    Sarah Palin's only good for signing her name, I'll bet that xbox already red ringed!

    Maybe if it was an Obama Xbox 360...

    "I'd buy that for a dollar!!!"

    I love Sarah, but I wouldn't pay that much even if I was rich. I can't believe the libs are using an apolitical psychopath's killing spree as a tool to attack her. -a new low. Many prayers go out during this Obamanation.

    I love Sarah, but I wouldn't pay that much. I can't believe the libs tried to turn a killing spree into a tool to attack her. A new low!

    And i have just noticed someone else has already pointed this out above me :P How embarrassing for me lol.
  • hTmlRuLezzD00d - January 14, 2011 12:41 p.m.

    Rofl. What i find really funny is that even though the guy will be getting $1million+ dollars if this sells, he is still asking $15 for the postage xD Such a nub
  • The-Preacher - January 14, 2011 10:56 a.m.

    What I find amazing is that despite possibly scoring himself a cool $1mil he still wants to charge $15 postage?
  • Snowyjoe - January 14, 2011 10:40 a.m.

    I wouldn't even take it if he gave me $1 million.

    Beats having our failure of a President sign it. But then he'd just tax the eBay seller and spread the wealth to the lazy Americans who have nothing better to do than pop out kids and eat good once a month.

    I will quickly defend myself... I am not a liberal. Or conservative. Or a Democrat. Or Republican. I have major problems with any generic political leanings or affiliation, as I take great offense that people would let themselves be labeled as any one group. You want to find out if a liberal or conservative is pro/anti gaming? Find out what their opponent feels and they will feel the opposite, no matter what they really think of the issue.

    not really trying to start anything.. but it baffles me that almost every comment i have read is liberal cept for the 1 dude who keeps commenting on this... but the only people that are against video games.. are liberals...? i have never met a republican that thinks video games are evil.. for the most part they all think you can spend your time and your money on whatever you like.. as long as you worked for your money and didnt receive a government handout.. arnold "the govna" ran as a republican.. but is widely known to be a democrat.. so this is really slightly baffling. that all of you are saying your liberal. not that sarah palin signing an xbox is worth a million dollars.. or anything at all.. but still.. im shocked

    "Palin Derangement Syndrome is quickly overtaking Bush Derangement Syndrome as the affliction of choice for young, spiteful, politically uninformed douchebuckets." You mean like Barbara Bush? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/11/21/barbara-bush-says-sarah-palin-stay-alaska/

    He should have gotten her to sign a copy of Bayonetta, since she stars in it
  • FinderKeeper - January 14, 2011 6:38 a.m.

    Sale Fail. Dude should take three zeroes off the price, and then he might find a sucker... um, buyer. ;-)
  • The4X - January 14, 2011 6:20 a.m.
