At least 27 of the 15th Anniversary World of Warcraft Server Blades have made their way to eBay in the past few days. These are listed as “New condition.”
These were not the ones sold from 2010-2012 batch. These were originally sold for the Blizzard Charity Auction Benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® through Thursday, October 31 through Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
- World of Warcraft Server Blade # 1
- World of Warcraft Server Blade #2
- World of Warcraft Server Blade #3
- Other 24 World of Warcraft Server Blades
Some have a “Buy Now” set price, and others have an open bid. Regardless of the deal, always read and make sure the items are listed as new and nowhere in the text specifies the item is damaged in any way. At least 3 of the 27 that I inspected specify a damage to the holding pieces or the acrylic cover itself.
Rare and impossible to obtain and is a MUST for any World of Warcraft fan! Own a piece of your childhood, own a peice of Warcraft history!

Q: What is a server blade?
A: World of Warcraft realms are hosted on HP BladeSystem, which combines server, storage, network, power, and management capabilities into an integrated system. These blades were part of the hardware that provided the processing power to run the game world during a period of World of Warcraft’s 15-year history.
Q: Is the server blade functional?
A: The server blade is not functional and contains no data. This retired HP server blade is intended only to be a unique collector’s item and not a piece of functioning hardware.
