What have you NOT been able to find on Ebay?

With all the talk that "if it isn't on Ebay, it doesn't exist" and stuff, I would like to see what you have NOT been able to find on Ebay when searching for something, and I am talking legit stuff, not like body parts, peoples souls, or 10 year old kids selling there older sisters virginity.... I will start......

I was looking for a promo vinyl that came out in 1995, been searching on Ebay for 4 years, nothing...finally had to start calling around to mom and pop shops to find it....

lets hear your stories.

any Premier Signia drums in red wine maple (or rosewood). I've been looking w/o any luck for 2 years. Thing is the drums were discontinued only a couple of years ago and were pretty mass-produced. They still go for a lot (the other colors) and sound amazing. Maybe that's why no one wants to get rid of them.

Vinyl here as well.

Marshall Hook Roll: A pre-AC/DC Angus and Malcolm Young band.

I eventually gave up.

A new liver.

Oh,... is that a body part? The only thing I've tried to find and can't is illegal bootlegs of things.

what is it, by the way?

personally, I'm hoping someone that works at a drum store will read this thread and have some used Premier Signia's and contact me. That's about how bad it's gotten.

There are some foreign movie posters and lobby cards that I have been trying to track down over the past several years. Also a couple action figures (Zatoichi figure from Alfrex, and Hero Zhang Zi-yi figure made by Dragon) that I've seen on ebay in the past, but now that I'm interested, haven't found them in the past year or so (of course, I don't check religiously, so I might have missed a 5 day auction somewhere along the way )

My mom was born in 1931 and she used to tell us this story about how she wanted Shirley Temple hair ribbons when she was a kid and her step-mother had promised to get them for her birthday but she never got them. I always thought it would be so cool to find Shirley Temple hair ribbons and get them for my mom as a gift, but I have never been able to find them any time I have looked on Ebay.

There was a DVD of James Bond trailers that was given away when people ordered Die Another Day on pay-per-view. Only found it once on eBay.

There have been some other items that I did eventually find.

I have searches for these things and have never found them.

Several toys I had as a kid I have never seen for sale.

A crystal windmill with etched doors/windows and faceted non-spinning arms - I got one in Holland at Tulipland that I loved, and it broke, and I have been looking for 2 years and can't find it again. I thought for sure I'd haev found it by now. If anyone ever sells one, I will be the highest bidder, that's for sure.

The Chinese linking rings game called Dragon Locks. Been looking for well over 2 years and haven't seen that version of it.

I thought of something else too,

There are a couple Indiana Jones/Raiders of the Lost Ark Polish posters that I guess are extremely rare (under 1000 is what I heard)

I only check occasionaly on Ebay for these, so I might have even missed an auction here or there for them.

I have seen some pics, they are some weird looking posters, but very unique.

1 for Raides had a black background, with a big skull, with a whip going through the mouth and eyes like a snake, very creepy.

Another one had some sort of artwork with Indy with some big Nazi flag on it. Jeep crashing? I forget.

I heard they go for big $$$ (not sure what big $$ is though) but I haven't ran into any on Ebay, I guess I need to look more I may have missed them

The baseball jersey worn by the Greek baseball team in the 2004 Olympics. I just thought it looked cool, with "Hellas" (yes, I know that's just the Greek word for Greece) on the front of it.

A nice jacket. Actually, I had one in my sights and I soo was gonna buy it. I made a bid, fell asleep, and forgot about it. The auction ended like at 3 or 4 am, and I lost the jacket by $5. Bitch.
