Who in the Heck Would Pay $16 Million for a Patch?
An eBay auction just closed mid-month in October for a Nurburgring 7 patch. According to the listing, "very rare ( only 8) Nurburgring 7 patch normally only available to the members of the Yamaha xjr1300 owners, XJROC and XJR Ruhrpott who actually went around the ring at Eurofest 2009 rather than just watched or dreamed." This rare collectible, which actually had two different people bidding on it, sold for $16,393,500.00. Although the name of the high bidder wasn't disclosed, the bidder has 100% positive feedback with over 100 transactions.
