The Best Deals Still Available from the Unabomber Auction

If you're anything like we are, you sit around in your free time and ask yourself, "Hmm, what's going on with the Unabomber auction?" Well, we can tell you this: bidding is brisk on the marquee items, but there are still some great finds of historical significance that are seeing little action.

Of course, the Smith Corona typewriter has a current bid of $11,100 (although there's a lot of portables still available for cheap). A handwritten copy of the Unabomber's manifesto: $17,525. And, unsurprisingly, everyone wants the hoodie and aviators, which is reflected in the current $20,025 bid. But look just one page further and there's an entire Unabomber outfit sitting at just $355! The outfit includes: a camo jacket, a homemade-looking poncho/drug rug, a lined black jacket, modified shoes, a deflated puffy jacket, gloves and a scarf, hiking boots and pants. All of this for $355 (!!!). Here are some other deals:

  • A handwritten "list of names" (yikes), $510
  • A pretty nice looking brown leather portfolio, just $325
  • Pictures of the Unabamomber hanging out from the '60s and '70s, $320
  • Lot of four bags — a duffle, a Scholastic bag, and a couple others that you've probably seen on the L train, $501
  • Lot of portable typewriters, $450
  • Brown leather portfolio (empty), $325
  • Bidding ends in just over a week. Get in there.
