One Man's Trash 

Auction Deals of the Week

One man's trash is another man's treasure, or sometimes it's just another man's trash, too. Look at eBay, the popular online flea market-cum-collector haven. Just about anything you can think of is sold there: books, records, dolls, art, knick-knacks, clothes, tickets, pornography, and just about anything else you could dream up.

This new CL feature will focus on two different items each week: one, a good deal that should still be available as the paper hits the stands on Wednesday, as well as some of the funkier offerings we've discovered in our visits (and we're not talking about used underthings, though you can find those on eBay without much effort). Caveat emptor, veni vedi vici, ex post facto and all that.

First up: a lock of a man's pubic hair (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1688195350). A red-haired chap, Ray Bartley, from the Big Apple, to be precise. There's no picture (thank God), but he states that the sale is for "educational" purposes only. And the reserve is a mere six bucks! Act now, before eBay takes a cue from the government and announces some "educational" cutbacks.

On a brighter note, local fans hoping to make a killing off Steve Spurrier's career move can pick up lots of the hot-headed one's paraphernalia on the Internet, including a nice selection of cards, which, like this one from 1974, (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1060827917), might prove to be a bargain in the coming weeks if Jerry Richardson can talk the ex-Florida coach into righting the team's sinking ship. If not, you can always sell it back on eBay to some poor schmuck from Washington.
