Have any non-unique 3E items hit anywhere near $485.00?

That is 4th edition and yes.  A spiked nog has done almost as well and the dungeon screens have bounced from $250-$700 depending on timing and quality of listing.

Several past auctions stated they were given to WOTC employees, so that's one possible source. Not sure if they were distributed elsewhere or not.

They are the holiday employee gifts.  They are not supposed to sell them.  I mentioned mine at ddxp two years ago and there were employees trying to figure out how I got one!  (and I found one available, hehe).  They pop up on ebay very infrequently.  I have seen five Snowballs sold and three spiked nogs.  Most in the last two months, in fact.  The most recent one was based on an angel and the only one I have seen so far slipped past me with a buy it now.

That's two of the five I know of trading.  The other three traded when they were distributed and I was the lucky one who didn't pay approximately $500.  One did almost $600 with shipping.

I paid pretty well for my first spiked nog, then didn't see another until I bought one last month.  Since then two more have come up and the price has been climbing as people figure out what they are....

The screens are at about the same distribution rate but they are pretty dern fragile and about half of those that have been around were damaged before listing or during transit.

Against Stratochamp you probably didn't stand a chance. At least it was an Acaeum member.

I laughed... hard.

I was interested up to about $25-30, and I really love Pendragon.  It's always nice to lose by a mile.  :)

The gold star editions are nice, but yes, $300 to $450 is a way more realistic price. :)  Or possibly less, considering he lost the special brown paper wrapper.
