I ask the question in the title of this post because, well, this is happening...

UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A VINTAGE COCA COLA CUP FROM SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY CARRIER DOME. THIS CUP IS IN USED CONDITION WITH SOME WEAR AND AGE DISCOLORATION. HAS SOME CREASING.

Eat your heart out, Brandon Steiner.

"Vintage Coca Cola Cup." I write about real estate a lot and if I've learned anything from doing that, it's that when someone calls something vintage, that means "old."

But let's not even break things down. We're talking about a used paper cup and we're talking about a starting bid of $9.99. Plus $4.95 shipping. FIFTEEN DOLLARS JUST TO GET IN THE DOOR.

I need visual proof that this Carrier Dome cup is worth (at least) fifteen dollars...

Question. Does it come with the paper towel? Or is that extra?

Smart move to add a photo with your hand for scale. Otherwise, we'd have no idea just how big this cup is. Could've been a thimble, could've been a jug.
