I got this off a game show.

What was the first item sold on ebay?

If no one guesses or finds it, I will post on Friday.

Bonus question (did the seller receive negative feedback)? I don't know the answer.

eBay was created in September 1995, by Pierre Omidyar, and the first item ever sold on eBay was Pierre's broken laser pointer for $14.00.

Aw, you got there before me...
But at least I provided the tread with something new.
Now we just have to wait for somebody to answer weather it was positive feedback or not... :p

I thought that he created Ebay to sell his wife's dolls for her. Then he figured out you could auction on the internet.

I would have to say dolls.
