See How Much These 59 Fireball Island Sets from Around the World are Going for on Ebay

in The 80s


For the totally reasonable price of $25,000.00 (that’s less than the cost of 6,000 venti lattes!) you can own 59 versions of Fireball Island from around the world: French, German, Canadian, Italian (and no, it’s not called Fireball-a Island-a).

This ebay lot hails from the personal collection of the greatest Fireball Island collector on record, which, as nerd legacies go, ain’t a shabby title to hold. I’ll be lucky to die with “Guy who spilled his root beer on someone’s USS Flagg and had to pay to have it detailed”.

Check out the auction here, and if you decide to “Buy It Now”, I’ll bring the pizza. Actually, no I won’t- if you have 25 large to drop on Fireball Island, YOU can buy dinner.

Just so you know the seller’s name is Cole Bartiromo (Google him – or go to Scammed from Cole Bartiromo) You also might want to warn your readers about his true ID. He has been banned multiple times but keeps showing up with new, illegal eBay IDs to sell again. He was banned once more so those auctions you saw has been cancelled, but you can certainly expect the same auction items to show up again under a new fake name.

/\ That guy has a raging boner & crush on that famous guy Cole. Haha, he stalks & obsesses over him. I was searching for stock money makers & I found his sports betting achievements & news….. this weirdo foreign guy keeps popping up. We definitely need Trump to keep these kind of psychos out of the US

Never had it. Wanted it badly though. Although I must have passed on it 500 times at yard sales in the early 90s.
