I’m not sure what category this post would fall under. I’m sorry if this isn’t the right one.
Anyway despite having spent a bit too much on my Tamababies I still like to browse the listings on eBay. A lot of them are overpriced. However I came across these ones and I almost fell over. In what world is this price acceptable. Those Tamas had better be made of gold.

I may be mistaken, but these listings appear to be for "graded" "collectibles". Though legitimate grading companies exist (and these could indeed have been graded by one of those, but I can't read the listings, and the grading thing always sets alarm-bells ringing for me), sales of things like these are sometimes used as part of shady investment tactics, such as to create fluff news-pieces that "XYZ Famous Thing from YOUR CHILDHOOD just sold for $10,000,000!" in order to manipulate the marketplace in the hope of manufacturing a bubble. There are a couple of videos about that below - it's worth being aware of this stuff, since communities like ours can end up as collateral damage when this sort of thing targets a particular brand or type of item.
