      pmsl - in a matter seconds it went from 100k to 125k then to 150k. It's showing 153k now. I would expect this to rocket much higher before the BOA gets involved.

      I think some one is really having a laugh as you say.

      A spokeswoman for London 2012 said the bearers were free to do what they wanted with the torches. "We just hope they go to a good home."

      When you consider how much the BOA and LOCOG are getting in perks and freebies I don't see how they can say anything really.

      Well I guess that one has been sold now since it has been withdrawn.

      I don't blame anyone for doing this. I'm just astonished at the price someone was prepared to pay.

      Re: Olympic Torch On eBay

      Why would anyone want to sell theirs?

      It would be worth keeping just for the memories, and then give it to kids etc when you die, as it would be worth a hell of a lot more than you would get now surely?
