I thought the twist was going to be the revelation that this is the most attention Todd Rogers has received in the public eye since King of Kong.

 

But no!  The twist was a different twist entirely.

 

What a twist!

Sadly it seems, that here we have a similar problem like the "5.51 Dragster" thing !!!

 

A software analysis model found out, that it could not be, that the Berlin wall fall down on the 9. November 1989 !!!

 

Now, nearly 29 years later, it seems like it all was a big cheating back in time from UNKNOWN persons.

 

I was at home in northern Bavaria back in the days and could not verify by myself, what`s going on in Berlin at that time.

Cool story. Thanks for sharing. Too bad that the high bidder didn't pay although the carts seems to have landed in a good place. Just wondering if you considered offering the cart to the second highest bidder since that bid would have been near $830.

Legalities aside, how does one authenticate a "piece" of the Berlin wall from any random piece of Eastern Block Rubble?

Super insulting to call Germany part of the Eastern Block, but I like it, because some prick probably did sell fake pieces.

Haha. Possible that some people sell pieces of old walls from their houses which they restored, as pieces of the berlin wall. This happened for sure back in time, cause it`s a good inflater.   :)

They did.  The irony: the people selling them were mostly from ex-Eastern Bloc countries.

 

I've got a chunk of it somewhere as well.  Can vouch for its authenticity as I took it off of the wall myself.

That's just the thing though, it didn't sell for $800.  It was bid up by one or more fake bidders and sold for something less than that to someone who didn't even bid on Ebay.  It's really not the story it's being made out to be.

Did you do a second chance offer for the second place bidder? If the top bid was $830, surely the second place would have been $800 or more, right?
