Every two seconds a Star Wars item is searched for and sold on eBay, according to the website. That's a huge number for a company that sells everything from vintage clothes to electronic components. In celebration of the franchise's staggering popularity and this Friday's release of the entire saga on Blu-ray, eBay introduced a dedicated Star Wars landing page on eBay featuring daily trivia, quizzes, and snapshots of Star Wars sales currently on the site.
Capitalizing for a cause, from Sept. 16 through Sept. 23, eBay will partner with Lucasfilm on a Star Wars charity auction with all proceeds benefiting the Stand Up For Cancer charity. Slated for the auction block are rare movie memorabilia including a Star Wars-edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and a pair of sold-out VIP tickets to Star Wars Celebration VI in Orlando. Yes, that makes buying a Star Wars-themed car not just another piece of your sci-fi collection, but also a good deed!
