An Iowa man purchased the clear plastic space gun dispenser on eBay for $11,211.11 on Sunday (Dec. 18).
According to PEZ pricing expert Richard Belyski, the dispenser drew in a lot of loot because it is extremely rare. He says there may be as few as six of the dispensers in existence, and adds, Ive never seen one like that one sell.
He says the clear plastic is what makes it rare, adding that other colored plastic models regularly sell for about $500.
Whether the high price was worth it all depends on the buyer. In his words, If I had $11,000 to burn on it, I would pay for it.
