There is a sucker buyer born every minute on ebay, it is a great platform to sell from.

I must be missing something. Someone please clue me in...
I bid on this early because the part number was not in our data base and the info tag on the box said target, so I assumed it was a target logo. Price got too high real fast for me. In another post about it we as a club came to the conclusion that the "grill it" style box was a promotional thing for target. Some members have accessories and other grills with the same box. It's just a black sj with a white handle. I think the seller used w dummy second account to ramp up the selling price for himself. If seen it happen before on other items.

Thanks Liquid. I guess I haven't paid attention to the boxes of the new Joe's. Not a logo guy but I get it now....

Yikes. I paid $10.00 for my NIB SJ w/Amstel Light logo. Not crazy about the logo, butt the kettle rocks!
Multiple kettles and WSM's. I am not a collector, just a gatherer... and a sick bastard.

That black SJS looks like an ordinary plain jane, to me. So, there must be some hardcore Weber kettle box collectors out there! It has to be the model #, exclusive only to Target on the label, and that "grill it," logo on a red wave, on the box. I also wouldn't be surprised if the seller used a second account, as @LiquidOcelot pointed out, to get in an automatic bidding war against himself to draw interest from curious Weber kettle collectors out there. The seller is just trying to build up hype to make that "grill it," logo on a red wave box seem like a limited or special edition, so he can relist it as "rare," to draw up even more attention.

I'm pretty sure @zavod44 can engrave that "grill it," logo onto his wooden handles. Now that would be considered a rare limited edition for real!
