February

Anna_nicole_smith_ss_122705_01 No, I'm not going to speculate on who will wind up with all that TrimSpa money or whatever cash the estate of J. Howard Marshall finally coughs up.

I will, however, share an email i got from a colleague earlier today, tabulating all the Anna Nicole Smith stuff already selling on eBay.

According to eBay’s Marketplace Research Pro, which tracks the purchasing
behavior of more than 90 million registered users on eBay.com:Annanicolesmith_narrowweb__200x287

      On Wednesday (2/7), only 4 “Anna Nicole Smith” items sold on eBay.com
      On Thursday (2/8), 2,134 “Anna Nicole Smith” items sold on eBay.com
      That’s a 53,250 percent increase in one day.

      Today (2/9), an Anna Nicole Smith signed July 2004 FHM magazine cover
      sold for $525.

      Playboycover The average sold price for an “Anna Nicole Smith” item on Wednesday
      (2/7) was $8.22.
      The average sold price for an “Anna Nicole Smith” item on Thursday
      (2/8) was $28.41.
      The average sold price for an “Anna Nicole Smith” item on Friday
      (2/9) was $40.69.

      Currently, there are 15,592 active listings for “Anna Nicole Smith”
      items on eBay.com
. (My search only turned up about 2,700)

That's the frightening thing about the Internet -- your relative value is always on easy display....
