Starting bid is $5,000.
And you only have five days to act to be the proud owner of this “ultimate poker collectible” that, according to its auctioner “poker-kitty“, was “used” by 2006 WSOP champion Jamie Gold “just prior to winning the biggest cash prize ($12 million) in all of sports history.”
Poker-kitty, who has a 100% positive feedback rating on eBay and is a 100% douchebag, goes on to say: “The mint in question was acquired (via rubber gloves) from a hotel men’s room attendant (close friend of the family; can’t disclose his name for obvious reasons), immediately bagged and labeled and stored for safe keeping.”
“While this item is DEFINITELY different, that peculiarity and rarity makes it the absolute ultimate piece of poker memorabilia of all time,” says poker-kitty. “Heck, you could even use it as a dealer button if you really wanted to, although I’d strongly suggest washing it first!”
There’s really nothing we can add to this, except that if this person nabs $5,000 for Gold’s piss mint, which is about as likely as it is the real deal, Tao of Poker’s Pauly, who loves to write about the pros he whizzes next to at tournaments, has a whole new income stream, so to speak, available to him to pad his bankroll.
Thanks to Michael T. for the heads-up on this one.
