When A Wrapper Isn't Just Colored Wax Paper
I've highlighted some pretty
incredibly preposterous priced original 1962 Mars Attacks items recently...including a complete set with a buy it now price of $2500 and a $185,000 original Mars Attacks box. Another recently listed auction takes the overpriced item to the next level as you can buy a single wrapper for $3750. Although the auction listing says the wrapper has been "GRADED" but in reality it has just been authenticated as real. So your choice is a authenticated wrapper or a complete set with an extra $1200. [By the way, that complete set Mars Attacks set is already gone...I guess it wasn't that preposterous].
