Controversy pays: after going public about pressure from glass company Seele over the eBay sale of a fractured stair, former Apple employee Mark Burstiner sold the cracked keepsake for $9,950.

It comes from the spiral staircase in Apple’s 5th avenue store, Burstiner saved the glass heading to the trash after it was fractured by a customer’s Snapple bottle.

The final sale price is about four times what Burstiner first thought a 250lb glass stair from the staircase was worth, $2,500.

We can’t wait to hear the buyer gets the thing home and what they do with it. And whether the suits will have any more to say about it.

Stay tuned.
