What’s green and gold, signed by Bill Gates and J Allard, and currently at $8,600?
Why, the Special Halo 3 Xbox Super Bundle auction on eBay of course…
“The ultimate Halo 3 package Included in this package is the ONLY Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo 3 console that has been personally signed by Bill Gates, the ONLY Limited Edition Halo 3 Zune 30 GB media player personally signed by J Allard, The entire Halo Trilogy: two copies of Halo 3 (Legendary Edition and Standard Edition) and Halo Triple Pack for original Xbox (Halo, Halo 2 and Halo 2 Mulitplayer Map Pack), HD DVD player, a rare special aluminum storage case with over $400 worth of accessories, two Limited Edition Halo 3 wireless controllers with an exclusive Todd McFarlane Collectable Figurine, Messenger Kit, HDMI AV cable, extra 120 GB hard drive and a Halo 3 t-shirt. For tax purposes – total retail value of this package is about $2,000.”
The Xbox 360 Accessory Package is quite rare, having been used as a promo item during the launch, I believe.
This auction benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County. With 12 full-service Clubs, and 28 before- and after-school program sites, the organization is one of the largest of its kind in the nation, serving 18,000+ members annually. Our son plays at the local club during the week with his friends and enjoys it.
Update: The package went for US$8,400!
