Odd Ebay Item

ebayrpsThe World RPS Society would like to bring to your attention a somewhat dubious auction taking place on Ebay. Someone is claiming to be offering the original Rock Paper and Scissors. The write-up, in part goes as such:

A moment that will live in infamy! This is something that your children, and their children, and their children’s children will read about in the history books. Gaze upon my amazing archeological discovery!

BEHOLD The ORIGINAL Rock, Paper, and Scissors!!

ebayrpsThe World RPS Society would like to bring to your attention a somewhat dubious auction taking place on Ebay. Someone is claiming to be offering the original Rock Paper and Scissors. The write-up, in part goes as such:

BEHOLD The ORIGINAL Rock, Paper, and Scissors!!

Although we can’t verify the authenticity of the Rock in question, the scissors are certainly no earlier than circa 1932. And if they were old scissors they woudl certainly look more like these and the paper looks more like a modern day "index card".

Our advice is to not bid on the item no matter how appealing it may be to own. Besides, if this was the real deal,it would certainly be done under the strict guidance of an organization with a better pedigree like the World RPS favourite auction house Christie’s
