The long saga of the worlds fakest vampire killing kit entered a new era yesterday. Earlier this month I pointed out that it was once again up for sale. Yesterday it hit the auction block and sold...maybe.
The item listing on Ebay is very strange. According to the bid history a single person bid twelve times and ended up winning with a final bid of $1,100.
What makes that even more unusual is that Sterling Associates had another vampire killing kit up for bid at exactly the same time. This one is pretty nice, in contrast to the sloppy work on the other one. Surprisingly enough, the exact same bidder made exactly the same number of bids and won with exactly the same high bid of $1,100.
The weird bid pattern may be a normal part of auctions taking bids from Ebay and a live venue at the same time. That said, I suspect we'll be seeing both of these kits again.
