EBay for Expired Upgrades

Is it a violation of United's rules to sell "expired" upgrades on Ebay. I have 3 that I mistakenly put into a book and just found... 3 confirmed NA upgrades (fun, huh)

Do you think there is a market? (since they do not issue them anymore) or should I just save them for old time's sake??

They did print North America Sales upgrades and International Sales Upgrades for 2002.. they are just much MUCH harder to come by.

Of course, there is always The Coupon Connection, where you could "gift" them to someone in need.

Edited to add: Not that I'm one of those in need.

Also, edited to answer LAX 1K's question: I believe that it is against UA's rules to sell them on Ebay.

File 'em with your Enron and TWA stock, they might be worth something some day.

I bought a "complete set" (2) of Webvan magnets on eBay, for less than a dollar.

You never know what people will buy on eBay

So the six North America Sales Upgrades that I got at my company's travel fair are valuable, huh?

My understanding is that these won't be available for about a month to the SE Asian country offices. Or, might they be available sooner?
