O.J. Simpson Book

Ultra-Rare Copy of

'If I Did It' On Sale for $250k

It's one of the last remaining copies in existence ... an original edition of O.J. Simpson's infamous hypothetical confession book "If I Did It" -- and it just hit the auction block ... for $250,000.

The book was originally announced in November 2006 -- and 400,000 copies were printed -- but the release was abruptly canceled following a public backlash ... and the books were reportedly recalled to be destroyed.

But according to legend, a small number survived -- one reportedly lives at News Corporation (the original publisher), one was auctioned off on eBay in 2007 (for $65,000) ... and now, another copy has surfaced on the auction website. It's unclear how many more are still floating around in obscurity.

The latest book to surface has been listed at $250,000 -- and according to the listing, payment is required in FULL within 48 hours of the auction ending. 

A revised version of "If I Did It" was republished in 2007 -- with added commentary -- and proceeds were awarded to the family of one of Simpson's alleged murder victims, Ron Goldman ... but an original edition is practically unheard of.

The auction ends at the end of next month.

The word 'If' in the book title is a typo and shouldn't be there.

Maybe the book should be called "If I paid all my debts," because we know he did it!

"If" O.J. didn't do it, then what was Ron Goldman's blood doing in O.J.'s bathroom? And how about those 11 knife cuts O.J. had all on his hands and arms? Karma got O.J. life in prison, even though that jury refused to put O.J. away. "IF" O.J. was "innocent" he had a chance to live free, but that civil trial proved he wasn't innocent, and then when O.J. continued with his "crime spree" it just all caught up with him.

It's not an auction --- you have to buy it at $250K. No one is going to pay that. You can put a crazy price on an item on eBay, but that doesn't mean you'll ever get it.
