eBay Deletes Google Glass Listing That Hit $15,000

Posted Feb 27, 2013

This morning, someone posted that they are selling a pair of Google Glass on eBay.  The bidding hit around $15,000 across 36 bids.  People really want to get their hands on the smart-glasses.  Unfortunately for the bidders, eBay removed the listing.

A popular eBay listing for a pair of Google’s futuristic glasses has been removed from the auction site after fetching more than $15,000 in 36 bids.  The listing was added by eBay user bla7kcat.  bla7kcat claimed that he (or she) will be picking up a pair of Google Glass frames at one of two launch events sometime in the next few weeks.

“I’ve been selected as an early adapter for Google’s upcoming release,” stated bla7kcat in the listing. “You are buying a brand new unopened pair of Google’s Project Glass glasses. I will be personally attending and picking up my pair in either Los Angeles, or New York at Google’s Project Glass launch event, which will take place some time after Feburary 27th. As for what colors will actually be available, will vary, if I am offered a choice, I will choose the color of your choice?”

bla7kcat’s listing was removed by eBay likely because they violated the company’s presale listing policy.  That rules implies that the item will be available for shipping within 30 days from the purchase date.  Below is a screenshot of the listing:
