Cheese Sandwich eBay

eBay bidding ends at $28,000 for 10-year-old sandwich with image

Half of a ten-year-old grilled cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary has sold on eBay for 28-thousand dollars. The winning bidder wasn't disclosed on the Web site, but was identified by The Miami Herald as, an online casino.

The company's CEO says he plans on using the sandwich to raise money for charity. Photos posted on eBay show what can be viewed as a woman's face emblazoned on the triangular half-sandwich, a bite taken out of one end. The former owner says she took a bite after making it 10 years ago and saw a face staring back at her. Ebay actually pulled the sandwich from its Web site on November 14th, saying it didn't post joke items.

But an Ebay spokesman says it was restored a day later after the company was convinced the owner would deliver on the bid.
