In her first post to the Yahoo! Auctions community, the wife expressed she simply wanted a fair deal for the cards following her husband’s unfaithfulness.
Under the username dnlay04438, she expressed her uncertainty in the value of the cards and the game itself and was only able to guarantee they were not damaged.
“As an act of revenge against my husband for cheating on me, I have decided to sell his collection,” she wrote. “The items are unopened, so I’d be happy if I can get a good price for these.”
The collection had 350 bids, ending at 20,503,000 yen ($188,220), reported Kotaku.
