maybe it's a typo and he meant $80 buy it now, 8 grand seems high for 1 bad pic and no description\

Well, it is $60 minimum bid with no reserve. Such a deal! :D

If the person who entered the price was as drunk as the photographer, then I can understand the unintentional extra zeros.

The seller could make a lot more money by selling whatever he's smoking.

Actually the starting bid is $6000, not 8. But the good news is that you can buy it now for a paltry $800,000! He B smokin' some pretty good sh.. :wink:

His recent sales history shows he sold the same model tester for $100???
Being in California, maybe the seller just arrived from a country with an almost valueless currency where 8000 ( whatevers ) = $100. He just got mixed up doing the translation.

Guess the seller is not in any hurry to get rid of it!

I passed through Barstow visiting my daughter in Fort Irwin a couple weeks ago and recall seeing that tube tester in an antique store for something like $150. I didn't think it was priced unreasonably but I already have one. I'm glad I didn't buy it because the entertainment value of the listing is priceless!

this has changed since I posted the link, it was $60 starting, $8000 buy it now. Guess we all missed our chance to score a great deal.
