Ukrainians sell Pugachova for twice as much as Madonna and Lady Gaga (PHOTOS)
Ukrainians value "local" celebrities significantly more than foreign ones. Thus, on the personal ads site Slando they offer autographs of "celebrities" from Ukraine and the former Soviet Union for much more than those of foreign stars.
Lady Gaga and Madonna are not valued by Ukrainian collectors of autographs. Yhus, for an autograph of the former they ask only 790 UAH, and for that of the latter - 1,000 UAH. Meanwhile, a photo with signature of Alla Pugachova is sold for 2,000 UAH.
The situation with sport stars is similar. For an original jersey of FC Porto with players' autographs they ask 500 UAH. A jersey of Swedish national team with players' signatures is valued at 2,000 UAH, and the flag of England signed by players - at 1,000 UAH. Meanwhile, the ball with 17 autographs of Dynamo Kyiv players of 2008-2009 costs 4,000 UAH.
The boxing gloves autographed by Vitali Klitschko are sold for $ 200, while the photo autographed by Lennox Lewis - for only $ 100.
"House M.D." also causes little excitement among our countrymen. The book about the show autographed by the lead - Hugh Laurie is sold for 300 UAH, while a poster of the Taganka theater autographed by Vysotsky is sold for 20,000 UAH. The guitar with a signature of Vladimir Semenovich is even more expensive. The author of the ad on Slando wants $ 5000 for it.
