$28,000 Grilled Cheese Sandwich

By on November 23, 2004

What would you pay for a good grilled cheese sandwich? How about a ten year old grilled cheese sandwich? What if it had a picture of the Virgin Mary on it?

GoldenPalace.com, an online casino, bought the thing on eBay, with their top bid of $28,000.

(Diana) Duyser said she took a bite after making the sandwich 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her. She put the sandwich in a clear plastic box with cotton balls and kept it on her night stand. She said the sandwich has never sprouted a spore of mold.

eBay officials pulled the plug on the auction at first, thinking it was a joke, but reposted it after the seller convinced them that it was legitimate. The thing has become something of a pop culture icon; there is cheap knockoff Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese stuff all over eBay and elsewhere on the net. Me? I just don’t get it.
