A DAD who has kept a snowball in his freezer for 10 YEARS is now flogging it on eBay.
Lee Thackaberry, 43, popped the snowball in a freezer bag after a memorable drunken snowball fight with family and friends and even kept it through a house move.
The greenkeeper decided to freeze it after seeing a news report about a snowball that was frozen for ten years selling on eBay for £15,000.
Lee, of East Grinstead, Sussex, told The Sun: “It’s incredible, I can’t believe how long it’s survived. It’s all intact.
“I remember that week there was a particularly heavy snowfall. I went to the pub on a sledge with some neighbours and we had a snowball fight with my wife and friends in the garden on the way home. The snow must have been eight inches deep.
“We came back from the pub quite merry and decided to have a snowball fight. The snow was so thick we nearly lost out little Jack Russell Pebbles. We couldn’t find him for ages with how thick the snow was.
“I thought as a laugh we should keep it.
“Ten years on and here we are. I want to sell it. My wife thought I was mad and I probably am. It’s taken quite a lot of space in the freezer.
“My wife and I have split up now but I hope to get a lot of money for it.”
It is currently on eBay for sale at 99 pence with another ten days to go. One person has so far bid 99p.
He added: “I’m not expecting it to make £15,000 but you never know.

“I’m not expecting a huge amount for it but I’d like someone else to get some fun out of it. I have a lot of good memories from the snowball but it’s time for someone else to enjoy it.
“Some people will think it’s totally bizarre – it’s the last thing you’d expect to see on eBay. It might well be a record – I can’t imagine there being many snowballs which are older than ten years old.
“I have absolutely no idea how it’ll be transferred to whoever buys it. We’ll have to think of that when it gets sold.”
