Headband made of gold?

I'm sorry, but can someone explain this to me? Why are people posting their head pieces for $400-$600??

No disrespect or anything, but I'm clueless. I thought it was a typo but there are several of these for sale!

wow I never noticed that before. Maybe if these things are really going for that much I'll frickn buy a sewing machine and make em they are not that hard. at 400 you would make your investment back in one sale.

or maybe some people have more money than sense.

It's "rare" and "OG".

Collectors like them. I think $600 is ridiculous too but to certain people that's what it's worth.

All the old venomwear stuff like "tree trunk" and "brown leaf" people post at ridiculous prices bc there "rare" or "OG" I think it dumb seeing as you can make the same exact looking thing yourself for $15

Sure you can make one similar, but it's still a knockoff and not the real deal. It's just like anything else old and hard to find. If there's collectors there's a market no matter the price.

I thought this too. $550 for a head band is insane.

My grandma wore a handkerchief on her head when she baked. I think she made them for 35 each. They had unique patterns and I think she sold them for $1 at the church bizarre. They had Velcro on the corners to stick together.

I understand that they may be "rare" or hard to find, but something has to make the valuable! After all, it is simply a piece of material that somebody (not a famous somebody) was sweating in! If it was Abe Lincoln's hanky that he sneezed in, that's valuable because it's rare!

Wow. Just, wow. The only paintball-related thing I'd ever spend more than $200 on is a marker. I don't care for OG stuff that much...I think I'd maybe chuck a few hundred dollars into a Karnivore or a nice Automag, but this is ridiculous.
If you buy it, awesome, you own a piece of history, but if you don't, then too bad for you.

god, I am so disappointed, I thought someone was selling gold headbands. Maybe its a little heavy and expensive but if im shelling 600 dollars out for something to soak up my sweat, it better be made of precious metals.
