This is what the seller is asking for it, not what it will be sold for.

The most expensive pipe I've ever held in my hand was priced $1,500.It was a good sized pipe yet extremely light.Of course I wanted it but it was far beyond my means.

Damn, too late. If I hadn't just ordered 700 Savs I might've bid on that.

I have some waterfront property in Nebraska for the Buy-It-Now bidder on that pipe.

bigvan is so right.
I remember seeing someone post a link to a very elaborate meerschaum recently that was up for bid at $50,000 ... they were trying to sell it as some lost artifact.

Ebay is ridiculous. There was a guy trying to sell a violin bow for $25,000 claiming it had been used by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. He had no certificate of authenticity but wanted you to take his word for it. Even if it was legit, get real.
I mean, who's gonna pay that price for that Upshall? No one.

Yeah, there was a guy selling his soul on e-bay a while back. If I remember correctly I don't think he got as much for it as they're asking for that Upshall.

As far as I know, some unsmoked Bo Nordh pipes were sold for 40.000$ recently. From the living makers, an Ilsted was sold for 24.000$.
