It is auctions like that that make me realize just how idiotic collectors are.
I was looking on ebay this weekend for leggings. One listing grabbed my attention. It was for a well worn pair of slipper socks. It was the picture that caught my eye. The slipper socks were those one-size-fits-all tan fuzzy ankle socks with the grippy stuff on the bottom - the ones they give you at the hospital. Curiosity drove me to check the other listings of this particular seller. What kind of person attempts to sell their used hospital socks on ebay?!
I'm all for reusing stuff but man this is almost as bad as selling used stained underwear.
