The rarest of the rare


So what's the rarest item you have? The soundtrack (both of them now!) is a great find.

One thing I saw on eBay WAAAAY back when (or rather read - pictures were rare on eBay back then since digital cameras weren't really available) was some kind of a trashcan/postcard item. The description said it was a promotional item given to video stores to promote the VHS release. Apparently it was a little trashcan that would vibrate as if someone was in side. It said there was also a postcard connected to it that said something like "Welcome to Hinkly Hills/Mayfield Place/The Burbs" (can't remember which).

Anyway, I was outbid and the winner never replied to a communication to send me a graphic. Has anyone ever seen another one on eBay or did anyone here get it?

I've...I've never seen that. I've never seen that trashcan/postcard item which vibrates and has a postcard attached to it. I've never seen that.

I once (it wasn't long ago, maybe 2005) discovered Ray's bath robe on ebay. The seller indeed claimed that he took the robe when he was working on the set in 1988 and claimed it was the original robe that Tom Hanks wore.

The robe was sold for a quite moderate price, I guess it was something about 300 $. Maybe it was already smelling like a cooked cat, I don't know.
