Each of the 30,000 glittering crystals is hand-selected to perfectly match the Diamond Anniversary edition of Scrabble, which will be available soon from all the usual retailers.
As for this sparkling edition, there is just one, and it's selling here on eBay. The auction started yesterday and will close on October 30th. All proceeds will benefit St. Jude's Research Hospital. The winning bidder will also receive a plaque certifying its authenticity signed by Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Green, who dueled in the 2008 Celebrity Doubles SCRABBLE Championship in June.
