Come on Down and Buy Bob Barker's Chair!

11/14/2007 12:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bob Barker's been away from television for just a month, but it seems like an eternity. For those of you who have wandered aimlessly in abject forlornness, fear not, your pitiable life may have just gotten a bit brighter. You can buy Bob's chair on eBay if ... the price is right.
Bob Barker and his chair
Mr. Barker has donated his on-set chair, emblazoned with W.G.M.C., which stands for "World's Greatest Master of Ceremonies," a nickname given to him by his staff of yore. And now it can be yours. Letter of authenticity included -- handwritten by Bob. That alone, is priceless.

100% of the proceeds from the sale will go to United Activists for Animal Rights.

Obviously the auction originator didn't read the rules or instructions. I find it rich that the homesite for the auction (Golden-Road.net) tried to pawn it off as Ebay's fault when it's entirely the fault of the auction seller by not registering the charity with Ebay and providing to Ebay the 500 word Mission statement for the charity.
One poster went so far as to claim that Bob's letter of authenticity was sufficient proof -sorry but this is not the REQUIRED mission statement that is needed. Apparently, the poster either hasn't read the guidelines or has little disregard for Ebay's rules as well.
Unfortunately this reckless oversight makes both the charity and Mr. Barker look bad. Way to go GR.net!

I offer 1 dollar and then I will hold a charity event to burn it. I have nothing against this guy but this type of thing is worthless.

You people and your stupid comments are just juvenile!

The money is for a charity, regardless of the value of the chair, or how many times he's farted in it.

EBay will probably take the listing down as it is a violation of eBay policy.

If you list for charity on eBay, you MUST use Mission Fish. They didn't.

Anyone who is registered on eBay can report this. There is a link at the bottom of the page.

Yeah, because I am basically a worthless goober with unlimited cash who would spend thousands on something as equally worthless as a chair that a TV game show host parked his butt in from time to time. No wonder other countries hate us.

Must be a slow day on the gossip front for TMZ to put out another e-bay story.

I just reported the listing.

I am sick and tired of arrogant eBay selling idiots who either don't read the rules or who read the rules but believe that the rules only apply to other people.

Rush Limbaugh played by the rules. Jay Leno played by the rules.

Why is Bob Barker exempt from the rules?

The seller would be wise to cancel the bids, end the listing, sign up with Mission Fish and then relist.
