O.J. Simpson’s If I Did It is up for auction on eBay for a whopping $250,000. The “rare” find is one of the last copies of Simpsons literary work detailing what he would’ve done had he killed his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
The book was released over six years ago, but production was halted due to public opposition.
The book was originally announced in November 2006 — and 400,000 copies were printed — but the release was abruptly canceled following a public backlash … and the books were reportedly recalled to be destroyed.
But according to legend, a small number survived — one reportedly lives at News Corporation (the original publisher), one was auctioned off on eBay in 2007 (for $65,000) … and now, another copy has surfaced on the auction website. It’s unclear how many more are still floating around in obscurity.
The latest book to surface has been listed at $250,000 — and according to the listing, payment is required in FULL within 48 hours of the auction ending.
A revised version of “If I Did It” was republished in 2007 — with added commentary — and proceeds were awarded to the family of one of Simpson’s alleged murder victims, Ron Goldman … but an original edition is practically unheard of.
Simpson is currently behind bars in Nevada for kidnapping and owes the IRS $500,ooo in back taxes.
