Turkey Priced at $28,000

Thanksgiving isn't the reason for the high price of this turkey. Find out what makes this bird so pricey.

As Thanksgiving draws closer by the day, you may be preparing to buy your bird and wondering what the turkey will cost you.

In Chestnut Hill, they have a very special turkey that will cost you $28,000.

At the Philadelphia Print Shop, an 1860 chromolithograph of a turkey by John James Audobon titled “Wild Turkey. Male. American Cane" hangs prominently on the wall.

Even though the print is a second edition, it is actually more rare than the first edition, according to Jane Toczek, who works in the shop.

"The first edition in the same size was made in London. The second was made in New York in 1860, but the printing was never completed because most of the clients for this type of print lived in the South," Tozcek said. "New York couldn't do business with them during the Civil War."

This 39.25 by 26.5 inch piece of artwork is highly collectible, and unlike some other valuable prints in the shop, does not come in a smaller size.

"We don't have a smaller turkey. We could sell one of those every day of the week," Tozcek said.
