Prices of scrapped Dr. Seuss books skyrocket on eBay
These books are going away — but not if you’re willing to pay.
Prospective buyers placed bids in the hundreds of dollars Tuesday for vintage copies of the books that were listed for as little as $4.44 over the past week.
All six books were also in short supply on Amazon, where third-party sellers are selling collectible editions for thousands of dollars.
Amazon warned buyers that four of the books were out of print with “limited availability.” Only “If I Ran the Zoo” and “McElligot’s Pool” didn’t bear that notice on Tuesday — but the only copies available ran from $920.99 to $4,500.
Neither Amazon nor eBay immediately responded to requests for comment Tuesday.
