League Of F.A.M.E.© – week 3 (ebay auction) results

Week 3 in the League Of F.A.M.E.© was ebay auction week.  It was scored using ebay auction results counting the total $ amount of sold listings (authentic AND knock-off) during the calendar week of October 13th – October 19th, 2013.  Our teams are getting more savvy by the week, and there were some especially interesting add/drops here.   In a move that smelled of cotton candy, both tasty and disgusting, Will Brown dropped Terry Richardson and picked up Walt Disney.  That combined with Thomas Kinkade, an original draft pick of team Will Brown, was enough to topple the board for a week 3  victory.  Switchblade sisters made a similar move by picking up Beatrix Potter and dropping SWOON,  and Du Champs made a brilliant move by dropping Martin Kippenberger for Salvador Dali, who proved to be a huge force.  Below are the teams scores in order of their finish this week.  We also noted each move next to the corresponding player.
