Oh..I should definitely start reading those.
Sorry!

This is certainly very rare.
My brother started working for the IBM development team in 2005, fresh out of Uni. It was a very good position for someone with no experience. He participated in the design of the processor in the 360 and the playstation3.
After the consoles were launched he received one of each, and the nice people in Microsoft sent him the trophy and the faceplate with it.
He gave me the xbox 360 and the items as a present and kept the PS3 for himself.
I had the trophy on a shelf for a while and then stored it in a box and forgot about it.
Recently we moved to a new house and I found it again while packing.
Figured I might see if its worth something as I have no use for it.
I was quite amazed to see it is very rare and quite expensive...

I'm sorry again for posting this against forum rules but I really want people to see it- those who are avid collectors will find this very very interesting.
There are maybe a few dozens of these worldwide and I couldn't find any for sale anywhere online.
I also need to get as much money as I can as I promised half to my brother...

That's my story.
I'd be more than happy if you'll check my auction page linked above.
Thx.
