Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 Million

August 6, 2009 -

If you've simply got to have an Xbox 360 signed by former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, there's one on Ebay right now.

It will set you back a few bucks, though. The bid is currently at US$1.1 million. Oh, and 75 bucks for shipping.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that Canadian David Morrill (left, with the ex-Guv) drove for three days to meet Palin at a picnic in Alaska:

[Morrill] said he pushed to the front of the greeting line and asked Palin to sign the Xbox as proof he met her. It was "one of the greatest thrills of my life..."

 

He has received one anonymous bid for his Xbox, for which he's asking at least $1.1 million. The bidder ID has just one "feedback" rating on eBay, and there's no guarantee Morrill will get his money.

Here's the Ebay listing...

UPDATE: The Ebay listing has been removed for reasons unknown at this time...

UPDATE 2: An auction for a "replica" of the Sarah Palin Xbox 360 has been posted on Ebay with an opening price of $1,100. In the listing, the seller pokes a bit of fun at the former Guv:

This replica has been painstakingly recrafted using:

    * Detailed photographs of the original signed Xbox 360
    * Imagery of Palin's signature on the infamous "helicopter-wolf-hunting" bill from 2003
 

...Furthermore, this item (unlike others) is "Guaranteed Not To Quit For Two Years" ...

Own the only Palin related item truly prepared to serve half a gubernatorial or presidential term!

Another one has popped up as 'replica' version, also asking for 1.1 mil. No bids, and clearly a joke posting this time.

It has been relisted by the original seller here:

and gone again.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Now we know what he looks like. Excellent.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Probably a fradulent sale.  As in it was never really signed by Sarah Palin.

I once met this guy who bought and sold signatures of dead stars.  He also worked as a verifier of signatures of big-name stars.  He had a pretty cool collection of signatures.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Ah Sarah Palin and the Xbox 360... two things that quit early on their followers.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

lol good one man I really got a good laugh when I read that.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Besides: IT´S A FREAKING XBOX360!!!

When the damn console gets RROD´d, the idiots on the Microsoft Service will just erase the freaking signature, like they did to a console filled with Bungie´s staff autographs, even when the owner written a letter specifically asking to not erase it.

(but I´m pretty sure they did it anyways for the lulz)... 

And yeah, only a retard will want to pay a million of dollars for that console. Good luck, dumbass.

Actually, Microsoft sent him a new one signed by Bungie and Bill Gates.  Link to story:

Yay for knowing what you're talking about! :P

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

In fact, I knew the ending of that story, and Bungie looked cool on that one. I just didn´t mentioned because I was talking about the people from the service.

Isn't that the same as quote mining? Anywho, JustChris is right. They don't fix your console and send it back; they just take it, stare at it for a month, and then send you a new one...

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

I don't think they actually alter the console...they just chuck it out and give you a new one. Which is why it's sorta easy to get the free replacement even if you break off the sticker inside, because most of the time, they won't bother to check.

Heh, even if she were dead I'd consder her signature worthless.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

You're and idiot. Don't you know that there are a frightfully large number of border-line retards who would fork over an insane amount of money for one of her "autographs".

And then you combine it with frat boys who have more money than sense and love their X-Boxes almost as much as they love Dubya, and you've got a goldmine.

I may just go into selling Palin X-Boxes and retire youngish.

At least Sarah Palin didn't feel the need to write two autobiographies that are full of fraudulent bullshit like some presidents who are fucking up this country...

Just saying.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

You're and idiot.

Bravo.  That was sublime.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

I'd pay $100. Maybe. I'd have to wipe off the autograph.

I thought that was given with 360s anyways.  It's not a matter of if, but of when.

That is the case.  Not if, but when.  Game Informer called it the pack-in 360 game: playing on borrowed time.

It's one of the reasons why I shy away from playing my 360 too heavily: I'm trying to delay the inevitable.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

I'm pretty sure it's a scam.  Only one bid for the item and it's 1.1 million?  Something fishy this way comes...

 

EDIT:  I also find it "convenient" that the only bid of 1.1 million already met the starting price...  Once again, I revert to my previous statement.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Either way the sale will not happen. It's too replacable.

Now, if Sarah cut off all her fingers, or died, that might make it more valuable.

I could go to her house right now and get her to sign 10 more, thereby making the first absolutely worthless (once i'd proven it was reproducable)

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

There's no way that he's going to get that money.  Hell, I have silverware stolen from Europe during WWII and I can't get anywhere near that for the silverware, PLUS all the nazi paraphenalia my grandfather stole of off corpses.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Yeah... because stolen silverware from a random European country from 60 years ago is a real hot item. Same for authentic stolen Nazi paraphenalia. You don't need to find a collector, you need to find a fence. Ridiculous.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Yeah, I've had offers on the Swastika Armbands of at least 600USD.  Same for the combat knives and ceremonial crap.    Some of the flags fetch up to 10000USD a piece.

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

Shouldn't you try to track down the descendants of those Nazis and return the items to them?  ;)

Re: Sarah Palin Autographed Xbox 360 on Ebay for $1.1 ...

It's just kitchy and somewhat interesting. Too bad I can't have pieces of WWII history lying around amongst my family, mostly because of my ethnic background.

I think this guy is on crack or a multitude of drugs.  I don't even think first editions or original copies of historic documents normally hit that range unless they're extremely rare.

Goth_SkunkAnd if those progressive games fail to make any headway in the market, don't blame gamer culture for not being cultured enough to appreciate the product. Own up to the fact that the game either sucks, is not interesting, or both.06/30/2015 - 3:06am
Goth_Skunknor suggest that the games industry and culture is rife with toxicity because of it and needs to change for the good of the medium. There is room in the market for progressive games to co-exist with games like Hatred, not replace them outright.06/30/2015 - 3:04am
Goth_SkunkAnd if the overly violent content of most AAA games or the perceived mistreatment of women in such games bothers one, by all means criticize it, but do not under any circumstances suggest that it such content shouldn't exist or be promoted,06/30/2015 - 3:02am
Goth_SkunkGames, for the most part, let you do this! You can be the man or woman you're not. You can escape reality and immerse yourself in the experience. And that's wonderful! I play as female characters all the time in games I play, when the option is available.06/30/2015 - 2:59am
Goth_SkunkA choice that nature denied transgender people at birth! People don't undergo gender reassignment because they want to be transgender; they undergo gender reassignment because they want to be the gender they identify with!06/30/2015 - 2:52am
Goth_SkunkBut I think it gets silly when people start asking for the ability to play as a transgender protagonist. I mean, why would one do that? One usually has the option to create a character that's either a man or a woman, gay or straight. You have the choice!06/30/2015 - 2:50am
Goth_Skunkfirst two games, a move which was ultimately corrected in the 3rd game. By extension, Dragon Age has always had the option, and good on it!06/30/2015 - 2:45am
Goth_SkunkBut it certainly is good to see developers entertain the allowance of allowing the player to develop their protagonist to be homosexual if they want. The Mass Effect series was criticized rightly for not allowing a male homosexual romance plot in the06/30/2015 - 2:44am
Goth_Skunkand only just by the slimmest of margins. Homosexuality is sadly still a hot button controversy in the USA, which makes developing a noteworthy game with a hardcoded homosexual lead or theme a dangerous risk to take.06/30/2015 - 2:37am
Goth_SkunkThe United States is the largest single customer base for video games in the world, and it only just mandated by rule of its Supreme Court that marriage ought to be just as much an inalienable right for homosexuals as it is for heterosexuals,06/30/2015 - 2:35am
Goth_SkunkFor example, it would be difficult for a developer to produce a AAA quality game where the protagonist is hardcoded to be MtF transgender, and convince enough people to buy it in order to make it worth its production costs.06/30/2015 - 2:31am
Goth_SkunkNo Mecha, not woe unto those who ask for representation. By all means, ask and be represented. I don't have an issue with it, nor would I say anyone in GamerGate does either. But be reasonable about asking too.06/30/2015 - 2:27am

Goth_SkunkBut Games Journalism, who in the past has stood up for gamers and developers, when their hobby was under attack by idealogues and governments for being overly violent, suddenly switched sides in a move06/30/2015 - 2:24am
Goth_SkunkYet the media continues to push that narrative, and they will continue to do so until their medium dies out from obscelesence or when the old guard retires and is replaced by people who were raised by gamers, people who know the score.06/30/2015 - 2:20am
Goth_SkunkGamerGate, by my view, is far more diverse and inclusive that the purveying culture surrounding games journalism right now. The stereotypical gamer is a straight white male, but GamerGate has shown, time and time again, that this is not really the case.06/30/2015 - 2:18am
Goth_SkunkAfter all, you did just call it a "problem."06/30/2015 - 2:15am
Goth_SkunkAs opposed to setting the bar high, creating a culture clique that promotes exclusivity rather than inclusivity. Cronyism rather than diversity. Do you feel that inclusivity and diversity are just buzzwords to be used whenever convenient?06/30/2015 - 2:12am
