Abusan Auction Canceled

posted on by Christopher Macdonald
Bid Exceeded US$180,000

Due to the exceptionally high bids, which exceeded 20 million yen (US$180,000 approx.), the Yahoo! Japan auction for a place in the Abusan manga has been canceled.

Yahoo! Japan Auctions states (translated from Japanese), "Because the price of the auction has drastically exceeded Mr. Mizushima's expectations, due to a drastic jump in price, we must unfortunately stop the auction. We regret the inconvenience to those wishing to buy [the right to appear in Abusan]."

The Jacket that was on auction over the same period has been re-listed, and the price is currently at 20,500 yen (US$186).

The signed baseball mit (and signed bat case) is currently on auction and the current bid is 32,500 yen (US$295)
