El Mocambo ebay

You can now bid on the El Mocambo sign on Ebay

The El Mocambo drama never stops here in Toronto - except it really, really will soon. After doomsday speculation made what seemed like a permanent and cozy nest around the historic concert venue, the building has been sold, the last parties have been booked, and we no longer have to wonder what will happen to the iconic sign - until a whole new mystery unfolds. That being the mystery of who buys it on Ebay, and what they chose to do with it.

Sam Grosso is selling the sign on Ebay now, and you have until the end of the month to place your bids (and bask in its glory IRL). The price has risen steadily over the afternoon to about $3,000, but I'd expect Grosso is hoping to recoup the $20,000 he spent on the sign's restoration just a couple of years ago.

It's jarring to see the sign on an Ebay page instead of where it ought to be (uh, Spadina?), and since there's no museum for stuff like this in the city as of yet, anyone's guess is as good as mine as to where it will end up. Anyone want to invest in a Yonge and Dundas Square install?
