Lady Bug ColecoVision Signed by My Roommate - BUY IT NOW US$2,500
"This is it. From my personal collection, complete, original and unique: the ORIGINAL American ColecoVision Lady Bug, signed by Aaron Wolfson the 07/29/2011 in Philadelphia (U.S.A.). You can see me and Aaron in one of the pics.
FIRST TIME ON EBAY! ALL SERIOUS OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED
If you are a hardcore videogame collector you know what this is: simply a rare if not THE RAREST videogame on earth; a lot has been said about the numbers but is rumored only 300,003 to 300,008 copies exist worldwide. Personally I know only three: mine, the one exposed not for sale in the trash bin, and another in the hands of a collector friend of mine.
This unit is the only signed by the roommate of the owner of this copy of Lady Bug, Aaron Wolfson. This game was bought by me 10 years ago for $0.05.
This is truly a rare, exclusive, elusive, obscure and desirable centerpiece grial (WTF?) for any collection, it has all: great franchise (Lady Bug), great history (ColecoVision vs Fairchild Channel F, you can google that), lack of scarcity (so many copies) and exclusivity (signed by Aaron). You can expect no more.
I'm owner of several of the more sought after videogames on earth (Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt, E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, etc.) and you can bid with 100% confidence my items are real, I'm more than aware of chinese fakes and I assure you mine are the real deal."
Spam of the Day?

If this was a thread for cool design finds on ebay it would be useful.
World Famous MELVAN, MELVINS Tour Van with Artwork by Kurt Cobain (NIRVANA)
1972 Dodge Sportsman Royal Van, better known as the "MELVAN" Featured in many books, Cobain Unseen, Come As You Are ETC. & Many NIRVANA documentary films. This is a very unique piece of MEVINS/NIRVANA history & truly one of a kind. The KISS Mural on the side was hand drawn by Kurt Cobain using sharpie markers shoplifted from the Thriftway grocery store in Montesano Washington. (former employer of King Buzzo) This was one of the first MELVINS tour vans & was used on at least one U.S. tour. Kurt himself was often times known to drive this van to local shows, also included are two former registration's, one signed by Roger Osborne (King Buzzo) & the second signed by former MELVINS bass player Matt Lukin ! Bid High & Bid Often ,this will probably be your one & only chance to own this unique piece of music history !
The MELVINS have put out the Question, who Will Make it to 101,000 first, The MELVINS facebook fan page https://www.facebook.com/melvins… to 101,000 fans, or the MELVAN to $ 101,000 ? Well, I say Bid High, and Add The MELVINS , They ROCK !
V: Hi! No question here, just wanted to say I really REALLY hope this gets sold to the right person and preserved the way it should. I am only 28 and kurt and the melvins are the reason I play music today, can almost picture them that young starting out in this van. INCREDIBLE! Hopefully it gets to the R&R Hall of Fame like it should!! Wishing I had enough to buy it and live in it- --TodaysXam 08-mrt-12
A: I agree with you 100% that is our wish as well ! Thanks For Your Interest
V: whats the reserve on it? 08-mrt-12
A: Sorry, I can't disclose that, Just remember as Kurt once said "You Can't Believe Every Thing You Read, Now Can You ?"
V: Hi, Is the Kiss mural the only piece of artwork on the van done by Kurt? Has anyone contacted the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame about placing a bid on this??? It truly belongs there. Thank You 08-mrt-12
A: I believe it is the only piece remaining, their was a Michael Jackson portrait also on the hood at one time that has since faded off, the KISS Mural was on the shady side of the van & has suffered minimal fading over the years, I do hope it goes into some sort of public display & remains in one piece . Thanks for your question
V: Was it is bedroom for tour? I won't probably not bid since it's reached the most i can pay for but i wonder if he invited a lot of women into this, if yes it should even put the auction higher i guess. 07-mrt-12
A: That's one I can't answer, sorry, but Thanks for the interest !
V: Very important. Are there any "skid marks" on the seat from Dale Crover? Thanks in advance. 07-mrt-12
A: It is possible, the original sheep skin seat cover that came with the Van in 1992 is still on the driver seat !
V: why wouldnt you sell it to Courtney...she rocks!!Fuck the haters 07-mrt-12
A: This is a auction, it will be sold to the highest bidder upon making reserve, regardless of who wins, I really hope they intend to keep it as a whole, this van has way to much history to have it's quarter panel cut out and used as a wall hanger as has been suggested by a few. It's our hope that it does end up in some sort of public display !
V: Who stenciled the BLACK IIII FLAG bar on the driver's side door? 07-mrt-12
A: The Current owner, many years ago
V: Hmm, I see you didn't include a pic of the passenger side. Is it dented? That was a joke. Good luck in the auction, this rules. 07-mrt-12
A: Passenger side is strait, but the van was parked tight against the side of the carport at time of pictures
V: Do you think any of Kurt Cobains hair remains in the carpet? Im an avid collector, thanks! 07-mrt-12
A: It's possible.....
V: I like how you put NIRVANA after Kurt Cobain like people wouldnt know the art on the Melvins Van was Kurts ? Ha Ha shoould sell for 100,000+ or its a bargin. JC 07-mrt-12
A: Well, the sad part about that is I learned about Nirvana through the MELVINS, My Favorite band for many years, the average music fan has never heard of The MELVINS, but everybody knows NIRVANA, I actually have a former member of NIRVANA sleeping on my couch right now (Aaron Burckhard) Putting him up for auction next, do I have any bidders ?
V: Do not sell it to Courtney . Do Not! 07-mrt-12
A: And how would I know it is her ? everybody is using fake names on Ebay
V: do you have a certificate of authenticity for the kiss drawing by kurt? 07-mrt-12
A: Matt Lukin has Picture's of Kurt doing the art work, if I can acquire them before the end of the auction, I will post them !
V: HELLO, What other famous person was in that van ? Was Dave Grohl,Courtnry Love? Who eles ???? 07-mrt-12
A: It was very early, in Nirvana's Career, Aaron Burckhard is my roommate, he does not remember ever riding in it, but Kurt Cobain,Krist Novoselic, Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover,& Matt Lukin Positively, & Greg Hokanson (First drummer for Kurt's band Fecal Matter) has told me he also rode in it
V: Does it still have the original plates? 07-mrt-12
A: Yes ! complete with tabs that expired in April of 94, how spooky is that ?
V: How much do you want sell? 06-mrt-12
A: This is a auction, I can't disclose that, Rolling Stone is correcting their story at this time, their info was off, But I do Appreciate them taking the time to correct their Story
V: How did you (or the registered owner) come to acquire the van? 06-mrt-12
A: The van was given to a good friend of mine by Matt Lukin's mother, he has owned it since about 1992, it was taken out of regular service in 1994, the last time it was driven was about 1998 for a short spin around the block. Thanks for your question !
V: Hi, I see you are "Tad Doyal"; are you "the" Tad (the musician)? I wondered because the name's spelled different. 06-mrt-12
A: No, Thank You for the question, their have been lot's of false reports online saying Tad Doyle, front man of the Band TAD is selling this this van, I am not Tad Doyle, nor Have I ever claimed to be, my name is Mitch, & I have listed the MELVAN for my friend Ben, I am however a HUGE TAD FAN & I highly encourage you to check out his new band, "BROTHERS OF THE SONIC CLOTH" They are BAD A** !
V: Should be in the RNR Hall of Fame. Nice offering. Hopefully someone realizes this and makes it so. 06-mrt-12
A: Thank You Very Much ! I Totally Agree , however we don't have the finance's to give it the home it really deserves. Both I and the owner of the van really want to see it preserved & put in a public display, my greatest fear is somebody getting it, cutting out the quarter panel for a wall hanger and scrapping the rest, this van holds way to much history !
V: Hi does the van still run and drive? 05-mrt-12
A: The van was last driven about 1998 (Short trip around the block) I would not trust it on any sort of road trip, ironically, the license tabs expired April of 94, how crazy is that ?
I almost bought a glass eyeball once on there. that would have been cool.
