For Sale on eBay: OH THE HORROR! JT Signed GTA III

gta iii signed by jack thompson

 

One time, at an antique book show, I saw an armed security officer standing guard over a personalized, autographed first edition of Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”. If that was not enough to make my blood run cold and the creepy crawlies run up and down my body, today I saw another autographed piece of “history” that instead of causing feelings of horror and disgust to pulse through me – brought the bile to my throat instead.I am taking about a Grand Theft Auto III video game for the PS2 signed by none other than Wacky Jacky himself. Yes, it is authentic. Apparently, the seller Nick acquired Thompson’s autograph during JT’s November debate appearance at VGXPO. The current price for an autograph from such a piece of *EXPLETIVE DELETED* on a game that he loathes and decries so much is $4,000. According to the seller, the reasons why you would want to purchase such a ironic item are:

1. Because it’s a physical piece of hilarious gaming irony.
2. A fantastic conversation piece. (seriously)
3. Because Mr. Thompson was nice enough to sign this for me, all proceeds will go to Child’s Play Charity.
4. Where else can you find an item like this?
5. You can brag to all your friends about how cool you are.
6. Because you REALLY want to play Grand Theft Auto III.

I suppose if someone is crazy enough to buy this – and I have seen people buy weirder, more macabre things – the good news is that the seller promises to donate the proceeds to charity. Whether someone actually buys this item or not, kudos to Nick for having enough wit and zest for life to convince JT to sign something he has been bashing from day one. Although, personally, I think JT would sign anything just to have his name on something.

You can check out the item yourself on eBay. If you want to purchase the item, it has a BUY NOW option only at this point.

:!: It just demonstrates how much attention Jack Thompson pays as to what he is currently doing (in this case obviously vacantly signing a copy of Grand Theft Auto 3…Unless he did it for some “political statement” reason…”I will write on whatever the hell i want to” style…

the more I think about it… the more I’d be willing to bet that JT did not actually sign this.

I’ve seem people buy weirder things, so I won’t be surprised if this item sells.

JT looks incredibly like Bob Saget…

The person getting the signature could have easily replaced the jacket on the DVD/Game case. If JT actually signed the jacket it would be believable.
