I hate to burst your bubble but, in my opinion, the only reason why that mug is skyrocketing is because tigertlily is bidding on it. This person consistently overpays on all his/her auctions simply to obtain the item. Truthfully, that mug is not too uncommon and usually closes on eBay at about for under $20.00.

I had two of the actual mugs from the BOT, from the Aku Lounge in Nebraska. I only got $68 for the second one. An unmarked version going for $50? Makes sense, NOT!
Takes two to get it to $50. Ebay sure can distort things.
Maybe I will start finding things at local San Francisco thrift shops...bah ha ha.
Ebay has become too deep-pocket for moi.

TikiJones...That mug is a repro. In fact, they are still being made (mostly for fraternities)...I have one in white that I got for like 5 bucks and a black matte one just like the one up for auction for like 15 bucks...which, I discovered wasn't such a great deal...someone once got 3 or 4 of them for $15..
It is unbelievable that this repro is at 68 bucks when the original went for that...bidders just don't know their tikis these days...
