A citizens of Wisconsin paid ten thousand dollars for the gum, which was chewed by baseball player Luis Gonzalez, although the starting price was only $20.

At first, nobody wanted to pay more than 20 bucks for the chewed gum, since there were doubts that it was Luis Gonzalez, who chewed it. Gonzalez dissipated the doubts after he chewed another piece at witnesses’ presence, spit it out in a bottle, which was then sealed. The price jumped very high after that and the gum went for ten thousand dollars.
