Amazing what you can buy on ebay these days

Gotta love the nimble little profit motivated mind that leaped to be first on this one

Click the other pictures.
They put Nicole Brown's and Ron Goldman's photos on the back of the jacket.

Only one word describes this beyond taste- free project: ewwwwwwwwwww.


Thanks to Janice for the link

Wow. I'd expected more, and sooner.

I make much of my living on eBay, selling study goods that I make myself.

I am aware of a certain specie of disgusting skanks who also make use of it, but THIS makes me feel soiled.

The only thing worse would be if the greedy b&&&&&& offered it autographed.

Give it time.

Hey! OJ--you found those killers YET???

"Don't judge me! I didn't read it! I'm just making $8300 off of it -- and who wouldn't? I mean, OJ was going to make money off of it and he's the murderer! He's a WAY worse person than me!"

Actually, when I first clicked the link, I thought it was a scam -- the book jacket looks like it was printed out of someone's inkjet.

Laura Ware said...

I wondered if it were a scam too. I mean, he only shows the cover and a blurry page that could come from anywhere...

Though if it is a scam maybe that's what the buyer deserved...

Where's Dexter when you need him?

Kafaleni said...

That's awful. The book is bad enough.. hocking it on eB@y is worse.

However, the fact that (to me) the If being in white print and I Did It being in red print makes me notice the I Did It.

OJ is a pathetic excuse for a human.

I figured a whole lot of those books will go out the back door and make their way into the market place. Even if its only the guys who are consigned to shred them, pocketing a few!

I feel sorry for the total lack of moral fiber of people who see an opportunity to make money off of the heinous murder of another human being and proceed with it!

People have to answer for what they do. If not here...

Kim said...

This is just so wrong on so many different levels.

And the truly sad thing is that I can't even say I'm surprised.

I might feel better if seller donated the 8 grand to a charity for victims of domestic violence or some such organization.

somehow - not holding my breath...

Inkwolf said...

Dang, why don't I ever have something I could auction off to losers for thousands of dollars?

Hey! Anyone wanna give me $3000 for my LucasArts yo-yo? My memours of my student trip to Germany? How about an unopened, industrial-sized bag of premium croutons? Anyone? Anyone?

Crud. Guess I need to kill someone....

I notice it was in the fiction category on eBay.

Dave said...

Aw guys -
Has anyone read Nicholas Basbanes "A Gentle Madness" ? ? ?
A dedicated collector would snap up a book like that. As awful and as "unholy" as it is... In fifty years, it will be a rare book, very rare.
Cheesy way to make money, but hey, you'd be dead and your grand-kids would benefit.

Inherited wealth is always a little "dirty"

I read today that Ebay has been blocking bids on this book, but apparently not quick enough to suit the familys' lawyer.

I read that Ebay was yanking the posted offerings for the book as fast as they found them. Treating the OJ book like Nazi memorabilia.

a naughty miss said...

Whoa what? Excuse me for being slow (as much as I'd like to place the blame on being stuffed full of turkey, alas I am one of those vegetarian types), but I had not considered that the OJ book was already being shipped to stores when the whole 'change in decision' came into play. When I stop to think about the timeline... Duh, of course the books would have already been shipping to stores.

So...this book on Ebay was one of the actual HarperCollins-published diddies that would have been on the shelves in bookstores? And so the fabulous glossy bookcover of this would-have-been-released book includes pictures of the victims?

Right, then. I have no further questions at this time.

Kiskadee said...

Look at the bidding history. A whole lot of false bids and retracted bids there.

Lordie. As it happens, I am offering on Ebay auction the very first autographed copy of my forthcoming novel, all proceeds to charity. This will be an interesting exercise--I doubt I will get a bid (if at all) beyond a used book price, much less $8300. Um, maybe I should go beserk in the meantime and make myself famous, (or infamous I should say)?

writtenwyrdd said...

These books were 'pre-release' and not sale copies. I am not sure how these few books got released, though.

Tattieheid said...

Assuming this book is genuine, the seller hasn't made as much money out of it as they might have expected and the person that bought it will make good profit on a long term investment.

If somebody is bright enough to get OJ to autograph a copy they will make a mint.
It stinks but such is life.
