Tips for Buying EarthBound

February 28th, 2010 | Auctions, EarthBound, Merchandise

That auction for EarthBound ruler that hit eBay earlier this week just ended. I managed to catch the last 30 seconds after someone mentioned it was almost over. It went to 305 or so, then suddenly it jumped to about 715 just seconds after that. It ended at $776.47.

I dunno who won it, but congratulations, you have a super-rare piece of EarthBound merchandise and history. Just don’t let any crows steal it from you 😯

Congratulations to whoever the winner was! Hope you give it a good home and measure lots! Argh…I tried, but can never win a popular ebay auction for the life of me. I always get so nervous and jittery at the end.

Good god!

I watched until about 40 seconds left [I had to do some stuff], and it was about $212 when I left and when I went back and saw, I was just like Ninji.

That’s ok, you can have it.

EBchamp said on Feb. 28, 2010

I am the one who won the Earthbound Ruler. I have been visiting this site for a while now, but this is my first post. I did try for the EB0 Proto, but that was just out of my reach. I will take pictures of this when I receive it and send them in.

Roo said on Feb. 28, 2010

Congrats, EBchamp! Looking forward to the pics.

Well, the winner wasn’t LucasTizma; it seems his max was $300.

My first guess at the final price when I saw this auction was $700, but I’m still actually a little surprised it went for that much.

It’s comforting to know there are crazier, more extravagant fans out there than me. 😛

neonix said on Feb. 28, 2010

Oh, EBchamp, congrats man. Glad it went to someone who follows this site! I’m lookign forward to the pics too, since we don’t have any good closeups of the thing.

EBchamp – your first sentence matches your randomly-generated avatar so well 🙂

LucasTizma said on Feb. 28, 2010

Heh. Well it’s my own damn fault. I was contacted by the seller and offered to sell it for $200 directly! More than $300 was a little bit too high for my tastes. Oh well. 😛 Congratulations! 😀 As long as someone cool won it. 😉

CuccoOnFire said on Feb. 28, 2010

Dang, that much for a ruler? Even if it is super rare that seems kind of ridiculous 😛

EBchamp said on Feb. 28, 2010

Thanks everyone!

@Poe – They do match very well 🙂

@LucasTizma – You were gonna get it for $200? I wish I won it for that price.

@CuccoOnFire – At least I can measure things now 🙂

If only you had a protractor also.

If only.

Roo said on Feb. 28, 2010

EBchamp, let me know if you acquire a protractor. I have a broken trumpet that needs fixing…

Bound2Mother said on Feb. 28, 2010

congrats EBchamp! Jeff would be proud
now if only they released an Earthbound popgun as well…

Roo said on Feb. 28, 2010

Darn it, Darien. I was so close.

Miles Vialpando said on Feb. 28, 2010


Now where’s the EarthBound Protractor and EarthBound Toothpaste?

I want to blind people with my teeth.


neonix said on Mar. 1, 2010

I’d like to have a bad key machine myself.

SmaMan said on Mar. 1, 2010


But seriously, I’m surprised I was actually the high bidder on this for almost a day. Congrats EBChamp and welcome to the site!

Pigmask Private said on Mar. 1, 2010

Congratulations, and have fun measuring things!

starstormer said on Mar. 1, 2010

Congratulations EB champ. Do you think you can post pictures of it or something?

TBird said on Mar. 1, 2010

Don’t carry that thing around crows.

EBchamp said on Mar. 1, 2010

If only there was a protractor to go with this…

@starstormer – I will definitely take pictures of this when I receive it and I will send them in.

@TBird – The crows that live near me are spiteful…

CatguyPaladin said on May. 15, 2010

Um o.o question: is anyone looking to buy one of these? I actually own one. I got it when I did a visit to Nintendo Power HQ and the lady there gave me one of these. What are they worth?

CatguyPaladin said on May. 16, 2010

Okay, whew. Reposting… Sorry I was a bit flustered when I saw this article. If there’s anyone interested in buying this. I still have this in my possession. I don’t see anything wrong with selling it. If anyone is, please contact me at swordmasterkale@yahoo.com.

iamwinsauce said on Jun. 11, 2010

grats! now you can measure things! oh, and it works many times in battle!
oh, and stay away from everdread. he’s EVERYWHERE.

NT-Yoyo said on Jul. 5, 2010

EBchamp used the Ruler!
Now, he can measure the length of things easily!

iamawesome said on Jun. 10, 2011

I won the ruler for $25 on eBay.

KingMike said on Jun. 10, 2011

I see your listing. You didn’t win it. You bought it. 🙂
And at that price, combined with the number of crazy EB collectors out there, I’m surprised someone didn’t buy it sooner (nearly a full day).

iamawesome said on Jun. 13, 2011

Sorry my mistake. Yes I made the guy an offer he couldn’t refuse lol. $25. I just got it in the mail and it is friggin sweet. Perfect condition!

Found one in Amazon under Earthbound Ruler piggybacking on a Westcott Wooden Ruler Listing…
