Film buffs can find a double helping of unique memorabilia on eBay this week. Freddy Krueger’s fedora, as worn mainly by a stunt double, can be yours for just US$10k. I’ll take two.
If Freddie’s too scary for you, how about a life-size Sylvester Stallone complete with Apollo Creed shorts, at a much more reasonable US$2750.
Interestingly both items are listed as Buy It Nows: this kind of high-profile collectible is the traditional stronghold of the Auction format, and indeed, seems made for it. Are we now seeing the very last death throes of the eBay Auction listing?
