STUPID HILLBILLY NEWS: A Woman Sold An Original, Unopened iPhone from 2007…For $63,000

If you took an original, first-generation iPhone into Verizon for a trade-in, they might give you 63 cents…but that’s for a used one.

A woman named Karen Green had an original iPhone from 2007, which was STILL FACTORY-SEALED. Back then…16 years ago…she had just scored a new management job at PetSmart.

To celebrate, her friends bought her an iPhone. Karen never ended up opening it…she already had a phone that she liked, and she had a contract with Verizon. At the time, iPhones could only be used with AT&T.

But since it was a gift, she just kept it.  A while back, she heard that a first-generation iPhone sold for thousands on eBay. She had it appraised in 2019 for $5,000. Now, she finally decided to unload it.

It sold at auction on Sunday for $63,356.40. It was expected to sell for $50K. Karen’s friends probably paid $599 for it back in 2007. 

Here’s video of Karen getting it appraised on a TV show three years ago. You can skip to the 7:42 mark to see that.
