Jenny I Got Your Number 867-5309 For Almost $200k!

In the early eighties, you couldn’t pass by a radio without hearing the song 867-5309/Jenny by Tommy Tutone. The song starts out:

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
You give me somethin’ I can hold on to

It now turns out that something is quite valuable and even decades later, on an eBay auction, this phone number was worth $186,853.09.

It’s funny, in the age of SIP and email, a simple phone number could be worth over five centuries of phone service at $30/month.
