While it might seem like a rip-off to some, there must be a market for it. A Downers Grove seller is looking to unload a Series 1950 D $10 United State bill for $20. The listing says the collectable currency is in good condition.
A Darien seller wants someone to take their large collection of baseball cards as a lot. According to the listing, the boxes date from 1983 to present, while the singles are from all eras, and "there are many good single cards and many factory-sealed boxes."
A Lemont family is looking to get $300 for their 5-week-old female pot belly pig, which they have been raising in their home. This wins the cutest listing of the week award.
Someone in Hinsdale wants $30 for a rare unused, unripped mail order ticket in "perfect condition" to a Grateful Dead show from Jan. 28, 1987 celebrating the Chinese New Year. "As you probably know, the mail order tickets have cool images on them and don't have that generic Ticketmaster look," the listing said. "This is truly a unique and cool collectible that would look great framed."
A Darien seller is seeking $700 for their 500-gram high white piebald ball python, which they describe as very tame and nice-looking.
This poster wants to be a role model, and is seeking a family who would like their little girl to have someone to look up to. "I am looking to be a 'big sister' because I enjoy making a difference in a child's life," the poster said. The 21-year-old Downers Grove woman says she will offer a free weekly outing to the child.
