Oct 27 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Cherie Blair, wife of Former Prime Minister Tony Blair, has seven homes, a high paying job, and reportedly is a multi-millionaire, but recently went to Ebay to sell her husband’s autograph…for only £10.

Known for collecting “freebies” whenever she can, and shopping for cheap trinkets on the online auction site, Mrs Blair has a penchant for bargains. Selling her husband’s autograph has surprised many, however.

The offer for the scrawled name was originally £25, but she had to drop the price two different times before she finally obtained one-and only one bid. It was written on a “bookplate” page from Blair’s new book of memoirs, ‘A Journey’. The listing stated, This bookplate has been signed by the former prime minister. This item fits perfectly in to Tony Blair’s new book. This is a hand-signed bookplate and not a (sic) autopen or copy.’ The name of the buyer was not given.
