The phone number from Tommy Tutone’s iconic 80s one hit wonder, “Jenny 867-5309” is soaring again, this time as an e-Bay auction.
When I saw that a New Jersey DJ who got the number for free was auctioning the (201) area code version of the famous phone number, it was listed at $90k with 6 days to go.
I just checked and it’s up to $365k, with 324 bidders. If this keeps up, it could wind up as one of the greatest “Garage Sale” type profit stories in history.
UPDATE: With 91 bidders, the auction ended with a winning bid of US $186,853.09, so the previous numbers must have included a bevy of bogus bids.
