(Newser) – Only four versions of Oskar Schindler's famous list are still known to exist. Three are in museums, and the remaining one can be yours with a starting bid of $3 million. On eBay. The New York Post reports that owners Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin put their copy up for sale on the site last night and hope the price hits at least $5 million before the auction ends on July 28. “We decided to sell the list on eBay because it has over 100 million worldwide members, and this is a global story,” says Gazin.

Or as Gawker puts it: "That's right: Schindler’s list, the iconic document used by German industrialist Oskar Schindler to safeguard the lives of over 1,000 Jews during World War II, is being sold to the highest bidder on the same website you use to track down ultra rare Beanie Babies." Here is the auction page.

If I had a boatload of money, I'd buy it and then give it to the mfa (Museum of Fine Arts - Boston).

I bet there are some descendants of Nazi war criminals that would love to get their hands on that. Thanks to eBay, they can go and get an almost perfect copy. They don't have to pay $3 mil, nor the ticket price to the museum.

I wonder if I'd get much by putting my shyt list on Ebay. There are more than a thousand so it's better than this one.
