There is only one place you can get all of these under one roof. In addition to being one of the world's largest retailers, eBay is also home of some of the most notorious, creative, and just plain weird items to ever hit the virtual auction block.
This comic celebration of the spirit of free enterprise brings together the full stories of one hundred of the most hilarious eBay auctions ever. From the "Ghost in a Jar" auction that recorded more than a million page views, to the woman who auctioned off her virginity before eBay shut her page down, to the saintly grilled cheese sandwich said to portray the face of the Virgin Mary and contain special powers, to the man who modeled his ex-wife's wedding dress, sold it for more than three times its original purchase price, and received several marriage proposals to boot, this book chronicles the listings that have made the site such an integral-and entertaining—part of our culture. The Grilled Cheese Madonna is a salute to capitalism in its most ridiculous form.
