A selection of fascinating things available on eBay
Picture, for a moment, eBay as a bricks-and-mortar shop – a truly vast building, stretching as far as the eye can see. As you first step through its swishing automatic doors, you're greeted with everyday items – normal, essential stuff, like TV remotes and  six-packs of socks. But as you journey deeper into the shop, the items start to become a little more eccentric: a vintage 1956 dress, a hand-built PA system, a framed set of Garbage Pail Kid stickers... 

And by the time you're right at the back of the store, you can hardly believe what's on the shelves – crazy things, amazing things, things you didn't even know existed, let alone were available for you to buy, and own, in your house. 

Join us, then, as we stride deep into eBay to uncover some of this month's most eye-popping, brilliantly mind-boggling auctions.

Raleigh Mk 1 Chopper Bike


Chopper-style bikes are readily available on eBay, but this one is as rare as hen's teeth – a 45-year-old original, a hardy survivor from the days when Raleigh Choppers were coveted by flares-wearing, glam-rock-listening kids across the country. It's even got that classic/insane gearbox, positioned slap-bang between the rider's pedalling legs.

Vintage 1952 Fender Telecaster Guitar


Even rarer than an original Chopper is this: a Fender Telecaster guitar, made just three years into the iconic series' production run, and pre-dating even the first Elvis recordings. What's more, it's perfectly preserved, having been carefully stored away in its original case by the same family for decades. It ain't cheap, but then it is a genuine piece of rock'n'roll history.

XH 558 Vulcan Bomber Display Model


With a whopping six-foot wingspan, this is about as big as model aeroplanes get before they become actual aeroplanes. It was originally on display in an RAF museum, and comes with its own tripod – or you could suspend it from the living-room ceiling so that it dive-bombs down at you as you watch telly. Although you might want to quickly ask everyone else in the house to check that they're cool with that.

“Dogald Trump”


US presidential candidate Donald Trump is rarely out of the news right now, and one 
enterprising eBayer is cashing in on Trump Fever with this uncannily Donald-like ceramic hound. It didn't originally come with that almighty hair, as the seller explains: “A piece of alpaca wool fell out of another parcel and transformed this little puppy into a Trump look-a-like!” Fortuitous coincidence? Divine intervention? You decide.

Pre-War Cossar 54 Television Set


When this TV's six-inch screen first flickered into life in 1938, the BBC had been broadcasting to the public for just two years, reaching only around 30,000 homes; the following year, all broadcasts were suspended until the end of World War Two. This is one of just ten surviving Cossar 54 models, and while you're probably not able to pick up Sky Sports on it, it is a beautiful piece of vintage technology.

Plaster Bust of Spock


You missed out on the chance to have this statuette of Star Trek's most iconic character adorning your bookcase – it went for a bargain £5.50 and is now with its lucky new owner. At least you can take comfort in the fact that the auction made a few quid for the charity mind. 

Nope? Still bitter? Don't be – there are plenty more fish (i.e. Star Trek collectibles) in the sea (i.e. eBay).

Full-Sized Replica Dalek


From an American Sci-Fi institution to a British one, and a full-sized model of Doctor Who's bulkiest and most belligerent foe, the common Dalek. It's been scooped up now (for £1,150, following a seven-bid mini-war), but the seller was offering to deliver “Dave the Dalek” himself – “UK only and no interplanetary travel cos I can't get my van up to light speed.” Fair enough.

A Stone with Eyes


We're not entirely sure what's going on here, but anyway, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a truly unique piece of art: a stone that's had half-a-dozen eyes (and a scary grin) painted onto it. “Ideal for checking how deep the well is,” reads the listing, somewhat cryptically, before adding, “He who is without stone among you, let him be the first to bid!” Okaaay then.
