Any chance you remember a couple years ago when this was released? Well, I called this price jump. I really should have eBayed all the ones that were selling for $50-$100 in the months after. I was stopped however, by the threat of physical violence from my wife.
Anyways, the in game Murloc Pet was available to attendees of the Blizzcon convention in Anaheim, CA, in 2005.
It’s also been bid up to $500 with a full three days left.
