Almost anyone can sell items on Amazon today, and you can now find many third-party sellers listing highly coveted and limited-edition items — some of which you probably didn’t know even existed. From Rolex watches to rare-edition board games, here’s a roundup of some of the priciest items on the site.

‘And They’re Off!’ — Classic 1993 Horse Racing Board Game
If you’re looking to host a game night and have the most original game, how about “And They’re Off!” — a horse-racing board game made in London in the early ’90s? The game accommodates up to 22 players, ages 10 and up, so no one will be left out. The goal is — as you might have guessed — to wager on horses and try to win the most money in the end. It promises “All the Fun of Live Racing in your living room!”
Even if you don’t plan on playing, you could always tuck the game away, and in the future hope to make millions with your old toys.
Sure, you might be able to find a used version of the game for less than $100 elsewhere — and maybe this is something you should consider buying used — but if you want mint-condition ponies, you’re going to have to ante up. Get it brand-new for just under $29,000. They’ll throw in free shipping as an added bonus.
Audemars Piguet Millenary Mechanical-Hand-Wind Women’s Watch
The Audemars Piguet Millenary mechanical-hand-wind women’s watch is one of the most expensive things on Amazon today — and even with the high price tag, you can only buy a certified pre-owned one. Audemars Piguet timepieces are unique because their designs date back to the late 19th century when the watches were handcrafted in Le Brassus, Switzerland.
These days, you don’t need to travel to the Alps for an expensive shopping trip to get your hands on one — they’re now available in boutiques and authorized retailers. This luxury watch is sold through Luxury Bazaar CPO Watches and they live up to their name — the fancy piece is encrusted with 856 diamonds in various sizes. The 2000 model is in excellent condition and meets all the standards of sale by WatchFacts to verify its authenticity — but it will set you back $216,499.
Mickey Mantle Autographed Baseball Card Collection
If you have a thing for high-priced sports memorabilia, owning this baseball card collection is most certainly a grand slam. This card collection features the great slugger Mickey Mantle — as well as his autograph on all four cards.
The baseball card set is said to be in excellent condition, but it will set you back a pretty penny — it’s listed by private seller Sports Memorabilia for a whopping $90,910 plus free shipping.
Jaeger-LeCoultre Baccarat Crystal Blue Dial Crystal Box
Collectors’ items are difficult to find on Amazon, and this watch disguised as a box is no exception. Certainly one of the most expensive things on Amazon right now, the crystal box watch commands a six-figure price tag.
Begin Shopping: 23 Things You’re Going to Start Buying on Amazon
If you have your heart set on the Jaeger-LeCoultre Baccarat piece, Amazon might be your only bet — it is no longer available in stores because only 28 pieces were made. Be prepared to pay a sizable amount for it, however — it’s listed for $119,600.
Rolex Day-Date Yellow Gold Diamond Dial Watch
You might have to dip into your savings for this pricey watch. The women’s Rolex diamond watch is a brand-new timepiece that is still stored in its original case. You’ll receive the original box and papers with this purchase from seller GoldWatchCo. — and the order qualifies for free insured overnight shipping.
The gold watch features a sapphire crystal lens, 48 diamonds and a President bracelet. You’ll be paying $46,298 for this Rolex investment.
WireWorld Platinum Starlight 7 HDMI Cable
It might not be made with diamonds, but this HDMI cable promises better conductivity — and it’s made with pure silver. It features a DNA helix design and HD-grip plugs for a better connection, making your late-night streaming binges come to life in a whole new way. This cable has 24 conductors to deliver the best sound and images over high-speed Ethernet.
What Should You Buy? 25 Things That Are Worth the Money
Other similar high-speed HDMI cables cost under $15 on Amazon, so you’ll be paying the premium price for pure silver with this purchase. You can buy it from Audiolab on Amazon for $10,500 — and shipping is included.
Sigma Ultra-Telephoto Zoom Lens
If you own a Canon, Nikon or Sigma Digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera, invest in the ultimate camera accessory to take high-quality images with a larger aperture. The telephoto zoom lens provides faster and larger aperture at the 1000 mm focal length, which means you can take higher-quality portraits, sports photos and even astrophotography.
You can take your photography to the next level with this camera accessory for a mere $25,999, and Prime shipping is available.
‘San Francisco Cable Car’ Painting
This colorful piece entitled “San Francisco Cable Car” was done by photorealism artist Jesus Navarro just last year. It is a 24-by-35-inch oil on canvas that will surely bring all the magic of the city to your living room.

Want to gaze at Navarro’s view of the Golden City? The painting will set you back $21,300, plus an additional $140 for shipping — about the cost of six months’ rent if you actually live there.
14-Karat, White Gold, Princess-Cut Solitaire Diamond Engagement Ring
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend — but friendship comes at a high price when you’re shopping the jewelry department on Amazon. Diamond rings are some of the most expensive things you can find on Amazon, and this solitaire diamond certainly fits the bill. The 4.5-karat, princess-cut stone (4.52-karat, H color, VS1 clarity) is a stunner, sure to win over the princess in your life.
With the option of yellow, white or rose gold — or even platinum — this ring can range from $66,310 to $66,660. But what if she says no? The seller guarantees a full refund if returned within 30 days of the purchase.
Xerox Color C75 Press Digital Laser Production Printer and Copier
For many of you who work in offices, this piece of technology might seem pretty familiar. This large-scale Xerox color printer and copier is a familiar sight in corporate settings — but they aren’t cheap.
This unit, which features all the bells and whistles, is listed from a third-party seller as used but in “very good” condition. The $17,000 price tag also comes with a 30-day certified parts warranty, as well as free shipping.
Sans Digital Storage AR464F8 4U Rackmount Server
When you save your photos to the cloud, they aren’t really living overhead; they live in a system pretty similar to this Sans Digital Storage server unit. Containing 192 terabytes — that’s about 373 years’ worth of music, by the way — this 4U rackmount server will surely suffice for even the most heavy-duty storage needs.
All that space comes with an equally large price tag attached, though — $28,750 — but at least the shipping is free.
19-Karat, Spinel, Loose Cushion-Cut Gemstone
Maybe diamonds aren’t quite your thing — well, fear not, Amazon has you covered. This gorgeous cobalt blue spinel makes for a popular substitute for sapphire, but you’ll need to also find a setting for this loose cushion-cut gem. Although the rock surely is enough to turn heads, if you’re not thrilled, Amazon promises free shipping and a full refund within 30 days of purchase.

The company sells new and renewal licenses for the various system services they offer, including web filtering, anti-spam, mobile security and more.
The Enterprise Bundle includes next-generation firewall security as well as a cloud sandbox to detect threats and same-day attacks on your systems. All of that protection will cost you, though — a three-year bundle is $218,912.
Luxurman Statement Jewelry 14-Karat Diamond Men’s Ring
Search the men’s jewelry department to pick up a piece of jewelry sure to make a statement — a 14-karat gold ring embedded with a large 11-karat blue diamond, for example. This diamond ring is made of solid gold — your choice of white, yellow or rose — and you can see a stamp of authenticity on the band.
It comes with insurance and yearlong warranty, and it retails for $24,995 for all rings sizes. This pricey statement piece is sold and shipped from the New York City jewelry district by J & S Luxury on Amazon, which includes the shipping with the sale price.
