One day, this young man and his father went to the toy store and purchased a Lego pack that contained a single figure for about $3. This is where it gets interesting. He opened up the pack and found a very rare figure called “Mr. Gold”. “Mr. Gold” is limited to 5000 pieces. I never realized this, but Lego collectors are apparently a very intense bunch and when they want something, they will pay dearly for it. With high hopes, they put the figure on eBay with a starting bid of $500 and ended up netting $560 on a $3 purchase! This is quite a feat for a kid! My hat's off to you along with well-deserved bragging rights.
Here is a picture of the “Mr. Gold” figure this young man found:
