eBay auctions off Gary Coleman's GameCube

GameCubeGary Coleman, best known for his television series, Diff’rent Strokes (1978-1986), had his personally autographed GameCube for sale on eBay recently, which scored an astounding winning bid of $510 for an eBay seller.

Included in the deal were six games: Mario Kart(Double Dash), Super Smash Bros.(Melee), Robots, Mortal Kombat (Deception), Sonic 2 (Adventure Battle), and Sonic Gems(Collection).

The good news is that the bundle was sold. The bad news is there were only three bidders and one of them wasn’t a registered user. This basically means the eBay person’s membership has been cancelled or suspended–usually due to dubious reasons.

Gary Coleman has had a rough life after his show was cancelled in 1986. He sued his parents and former manager in 1989 for "misappropriation of funds" and was awarded over $1 million in the settlement, but later filed for bankruptcy in 1999.

Coleman was charged with assault in 1998 after he hit a woman while working as a security guard in a shopping mall. In 2007, Coleman was hauled in for disorderly conduct in Provo, Utah while arguing with a woman.

In spite of all his troubles, at least we know that he’s a gamer. Hopefully, he’s upgraded from his GameCube to a Wii, Xbox 360 or PS3 by now.

Did anybody else notice that Gary Coleman’s initials and the GameCube’s are the same?
