Joel Brown's 2015 WCOOP Bracelet Shows up on eBay
Joel Brown’s 2015 PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker gold and diamond bracelet from his Event 65 final win is now taking bids over on eBay, thanks to user vancouvercoin.
Brown, “jbrown8777,” received the bracelet as part of his $142,377.55 win ($31,406.80 of that was in bounties) against Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz. Event 65 was a $700 buy-in six-handed, no limit hold ‘em tournament with 2,119 entries.
This WCOOP bracelet was his first, but it was particularly notable because 2015 was the final year PokerStars issued bracelets to champions. The bracelet, as listed on eBay, displays the logo with “PokerStars WCOOP2015” and is 9K solid gold, something the seller, vancouvercoin, places at a 9.5 out of 10 for excellent overall eye appeal. The seller lists the item condition as “pre-owned.” The seller typically sells coins and other forms of currency and it is unclear where the seller obtained the bracelet.
The bracelet appeared online Aug. 31 for C $0.99 and rose Sept. 1 to $2.25 (only two bidders and a total of three bids). The shipping and handling is listed as C $35.00. As of Sept. 2, the bracelet has only eight days left before the listing ends, posted for a total of 10 days.
