Money Maker: Humanoscope
I briefly mentioned that I picked up this old paper “Humanoscope” at a recent sale. I bought it for $1 and hoped to turn it over for around $5 or so. I apparently underestimated the desirability of whatever-the-hell a humanoscope is.
I started my ebay listing for this item at $2.99 and it ended up selling for $37. THIRTY-SEVEN DOLLARS for a 4-page paper booklet. I was astounded.
But here is where things get interesting…
Riddle me this Batman. There are a few other Humanoscopes for sale on ebay. All the same as mine. And they are listed as “Buy It Now” for like $11. AND NO ONE IS BUYING THEM. Why was mine bid up to $37 when people could just go buy one of these from the other auctions? It makes NO SENSE.
Although, I’m not complaining.
