I have this unopened 100 proof Very Very Old Fitzgerald, barreled in 1952 and bottled in 1965.
Is it still good to drink or is it now more a collectors item?

You can search for my earlier saponification post (shameless plug). And I've had a soapy Very Old Fitzgerald! In particular, old bourbon is risky because it was relatively inexpensive and people didn't care for it. That bottle might have sat in a hot barn for 40 years.
And clearly this guy is not a whisky aficionado, and just because he wants to sell something he doesn't want (like everybody else on Ebay), doesn't make him a money-grubber. I'm glad that people sell whiskey on Ebay, otherwise I wouldn't have the opportunity to buy it!
UPDATED: And now I just found a post by you on the very same day stating that it can go bad! What's up with that?
