What is this guy thinking? $29,999.99 for a speaker and $400.00 for shipping? Holy cow. What makes this so rare? Shipping from where, Jupiter? Can someone tell me why this would command even coming close to asking this price. Is this guy just fishing or what?

He's thinking its been on Ebay forever so why not leave it there? He obviously doesn't want to sell it or it'd be at a reasonable price by now.

If you click on the See Full Item Description tab you'll get the whole story and how the seller came to the estimated price. No doubt these are ultra rare but potential owners of an incomplete Crosley Giant Radio with missing speakers and willing to spend 30,000$ are even rarer, if they even exist on this planet. I wish the seller good luck...

He might as well list it for $100k or any number he picks out of thin air. The mystery person who suggested a calculation for pricing could be anybody. Maybe I should list some mundane item for a wildly hopeful number just to game the system. Eventually some CL or LetGo seller will point to this listing and say "I saw the same thing going for $30k on line."
