I was following up some bad idea that involved comparing the number of eBay auctions posted for various MMORPGs… primarily SWTOR and WoW… and the type of items listed when I felt I just had to throw EverQuest into the mix.
EverQuest turned up 755 items, though you get anything related to EverQuest II as well, including one odd item on the first page, an EverQuest Players cocktail shaker.
You can see the auction here while it lasts.
My first question… as when I saw EverQuest Zippo lighters or that Free Realms suggie thing (one company’s April Fools is another’s reality)… was “Why?”
Who would make an EverQuest Players cocktail shaker? Was it created in celebration of something? A game milestone? An expansion launch? An admission that most of the community team had fallen off the wagon yet again? (Which I am pretty sure was when that snuggie idea came up.)
Unfortunately, the description on eBay is not very forthcoming.
Everquest Cocktail Shaker Set.
Items are made of metal – the Shaker says “EverQust Players” on it.
No other writing can be found on any of the items – no paperwork is included neither (I do not think it had any).
Item comes in a black box with foam molded to support and protect it.
CONDITION – New, but Box has Damage. Please see pictures. The items are in excellent shape, they were never used and were for the most part kept inside the box and protected. The bottom of the box is in good shape, but I do see the box has a very small dent near a corner, but the top part of the box is the worst of it, it has a blown out corner. Otherwise, this lot is a good one, the metal cocktail set is in unused, new condition.. it’s just the box that is questionable.
Glad to know it is made of metal I suppose, but I wonder what the story behind this particular metal vessel really is.
Anyway, if you are a real EverQuest die hard, you have six more days to bid!
(And shiny though this item is, the listing appears mercifully free of reflecto-porn.)
