A New Grading Low

I am now convinced someone, somewhere will grade anything you send them.  I've seen lots of stuff graded and authenticated over the years:
  • Action Figures / Play sets
  • Autographs
  • Coins / Currency
  • Comic Books / Magazines
  • Diamonds / Precious Gems
  • Die-Cast Cars
  • Dolls
  • Matchbook Covers / Matchbooks
  • Movie Posters
  • Sports / Celebrity Memorabilia
  • Stamps
  • Tickets
  • Trading Cards
  • Trading Card Packs / Boxes / Wrappers
  • Video Games / Systems
  • Wire / Original Photos
  • Condoms?  See the picture below.

I would imagine there are numerous other items out there people are grading, but I've yet to uncover them.  Well, tonight I uncovered the strangest graded item on eBay ever.  I found AFA-graded He-Man Masters of the Universe Slime!  Apparently, according to this auction, this is case-fresh, 25-year-old slime.  Hence, the "UNCIRCULATED" moniker on the label.  See it for yourself here: He-Man Slime

Now I remember this slime stuff.  I had it.  I doused all my He-Man figures in it.  It was gross then.  I remember my mom made me throw it out when it went bad.  Yes.  It went bad.  It smelled like death.  Basically, it rotted.  Can you imagine what this can of uncirculated slime would smell like now?  Would it keep like wine?  I shudder to think.  In any case, you could have had a mint condition, uncirculated can of it for a mere $91 on eBay.  I know I'm sad I didn't have my snipe set!
