Most Expensive Item Ever On Ebay?

Recommended Posts

How can you tell its not a reissue? Whats on the b side, the instrumental?

I bet ebay would love the sales commission if it actually sold. God knows (literally) how much the signed copy would make.

Follow up - looks like it's not for sale anymore - apparently it was 10 years old!!!

From CNN. com

MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- The people at eBay were no believers in this cheesy miracle: half of a 10-year-old grilled cheese sandwich whose owner claimed it bore the image of the Virgin Mary.

Diana Duyser put the sandwich up for sale last week, drawing bids as high as $22,000 before eBay pulled the item Sunday night. The page was viewed nearly 100,000 times before being taken down.

An e-mail Duyser received from eBay said the sandwich broke its policy, which "does not allow listings that are intended as jokes."

But, Duyser, a jewelry designer who has bought and sold items on eBay for two years, insisted this was not a laughing matter.

"How could eBay do this to me?" Duyser said Monday, hours before the online auction was supposed to have ended.

EBay spokesman Hani Durzy said he did not have enough information to comment specifically on the case.

Duyser thought eBay would be the best place to show off the sandwich, made on plain white bread with American cheese. It was cooked with no oil or butter.

Duyser, 52, said she took a bite after making it 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her from the bread. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand.

At first, she was scared by the image, "but now that I realize how unique it is, I wanted to share it with the world," Duyser said.

The sandwich, she added, has never sprouted a spore of mold.

It just goes to show, especially in the States, everything has it price.

What would be the most expensive Northern Soul related item?

How about 'a sample of talcum powder taken from the floor at the Torch' must be worth $99,999,999 especially if it had the image of Major Lance in it.!!!!!!!

Think the most expensive item *ever* on eBay was when that woman offered herself as a wife - bidding starting at 10 million or thereabouts.
