A 50mm K tube (in case) just sold for over $150 on eBay! I know they are rather uncommon, but.........

Simplest answer: Some people have more money than sense. For example there is now someone trying to sell a Kenko unitube plus on eek bay for about $130. This is a scarce item right now, I think that Kenko hasn't been making them for a while, but you could buy one new for about $80 not too long ago. And if ppl are willing to spend $130 for them, I would imagine that the demand for them is high enough for Kenko to start making them again.

Considering that it has been out of production for many years, all metal construction and more people looking for it, I am not at all surprised by it.

Well, thanks to both of you but since a set of three rarely goes for much above $50 it was surprising to me.......
