The legendary hand that earned Chris Moneymaker his 2003 WSOP Main Event title is up for sale.

In an eBay listing by "londone4", the actual deck along with Moneymaker's 5d4s is being offered to prospective bidders for a minimum of $5,000.

According to the post, the seller was working at Binion's Horseshoe during the finale and obtained permission to keep the deck when the festivities were over.

After Chris had finished posing for pictures, "londone4" boxed up the cards and he's now selling them along with a certificate of authenticity signed by Matt Savage and Chris Moneymaker.

Although Moneymaker's hand doesn't hold the reverence of Doyle Brunson's T-2, it arguably helped spark one of the most significant movements in poker history.

Is it just me, or this is a very stupid amount to ask for something like that.
I wouldnt be interested for this even if it was free of charge.
I wonder if there will be any takers.

im sure people will be interested either thinking it as an investment opportunity or those who have too much of money to spend on useful things.

Those that they have too much money and spending it in useless things i agree.
but i dont see any investment opportunity in this personally.
With that money you can buy something with way greater value than that.

And yes the whole Jesse James worth way more than 5k

I think those cards in general from the cowboy days would be worth quite a bit and just so your aware I believe it was Wild Bill Hicoch who died with the A,8 in his hand.

At least your guess was from the right time frame for the most part. And, as for this 5,4 I'm sure there will be someone with the money to waste.

I think this is a joke, because $5.000 is too low for that history and yes you're right Greenmohave :
