Most Expensive Telephone Card You'll Ever See

Yahoo!, is hosting an auction for a limited edition Rockman Zero telephone card, featuring original artwork by Toru Nakayama not seen anywhere else.

According to the seller, this practically unattainable prepaid telephone card is but one of 200 made, distributed as a promotional item at Capcom's Yamagawa festival for 10,000 Yen (little over a hundred dollars).

The seller is auctioning off the card for a whopping 98,000 Yen ($1,088.00). For that much, I certainly hope it's got a ton of pre-paid minutes.

Check out the complete auction here.


  1. Wow... that's... wow.

    And has that art been used anywhere before?

  2. Those shoes look horribly uncomfortable. Poor Ciel.

  3. Heh, if I had a thousand bucks that I could just burn, I wouldn't mind having that.
    Prepaid minutes or not, it's a sweet bit of artwork.

  4. People on Yahoo Auctions JP start their stuff off at rediculous prices all the time. Most of them never sell and they just keep reposting them at the same price. I got sick of it personally and quit looking there after seeing a Forte model listed at ~$150 for 2 months consecutively and never selling.

    As for the art, I'm pretty sure I've see it before. If not, it's very close to things I've seen before. Definitely not worth the price tag.

  5. For that price, you should be able to make an infinite amount of calls... but i looooooooove the artwork!

  6. Anyone wanna shell out the dough so they can scan it or is there already a scan somewhere...?
