WSOP Bracelet Sold for a Mere $4,050

Last month, it almost seemed as if selling WSOP bracelets was the newest fad in the industry, what with Eastgate selling his own bracelet for charity and Eskimo Clark’s bracelet suddenly being put up for sale by an unknown someone. However, there was a marked difference between the two. Eastgate’s bracelet managed to bring in a whopping $147,000 while Clark’s only managed to rope in $4,050.

Authenticity Issues

It caused quite a stir among poker fans when another WSOP bracelet was posted on Ebay. This time, it was Eskimo Clark’s 1999 WSOP bracelet being put up for sale. The seller wasn’t Clark himself but a user named ‘anarcnub’, so people surmised that he must have sold the bracelet to someone else early on. That someone apparently saw the profit Eastgate’s bracelet was generating and decided to cash in on the bracelet bonanza himself. However, judging by the reaction on the forums, people simply weren’t buying it. Some were questioning the bracelet’s authenticity. Others were even commenting about the bracelet’s looks.

The fact that the seller didn’t have any previous transactions in Ebay really worked against him. It is also true that Eastgate’s 2008 bracelet looked much spiffier than the plain 1999 one. Some were thinking that the sale might be a fraud and a lot of people decided to just keep away. Some, however, were thinking that if the bracelet really is authentic, then they would fetch quite a bit of profit. So, unsurprisingly, the bracelet still managed to get a few bids.

The Price

Clark’s bracelet apparently had 117.1 grams of 18k gold and was more than eight inches in length. The words ‘WSOP 1999” were inscribed on it and, as the seller happily reminded potential buyers, it was “an exquisite piece of gold jewelry that rarely comes on the market.” The starting price was a small $1,000 and it attracted 15 bids in all. Eventually the price ended up at $4,050. The winner was n***x, whose identity was again kept hidden due to privacy issues.
Meantime, the buyer of Eastgate’s bracelet has yet to turn up. It’s probably not Tony G, as we have no pictures of his dog wearing a collar yet.

Some people believe that it was probably a poker site, maybe Full Tilt or PokerStars, that bought the bracelet in the hopes of using it for promotional purposes.
