    Am I missing something here???

    Check out this ebay auction. I am not a JD drinker so the high value eludes me.

    Unbelievable! I guess it must be the box.

    It might also have something to do with it being the 90 proof, which hasn't been available for a long while now.

    "There's a sucker born every minute...and two to take 'em."

    But, that said, I have been told that there are collectors, much like the collectors of Maker's Mark commemorative bottles, whose mission is to own every iteration of the Jack Daniel's package. This probably was standard-issue at one time, but maybe it's now rare in that collector community.

    Safe to say that, like the MM collectors, it has nothing to do with appreciation of the whiskey.

    I wonder when Lem Motlow´s picture disappeared from the label? Or was this perhaps just a one-off?

    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    I note that it didn't stay there, whatever the reason:

    "This listing (190094562350) has been removed or is no longer available. Please make sure you entered the right item number. If the listing was removed by eBay, consider it canceled."

    Looks like they removed it. Earlier it was up to $5xx.xx.

    Or someone made a "What-will-it-take-to-remove-it-early?" offer.
