Livestrong band buy it now only for the dollar he paid. Impressive to say the least: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...108567086&rd=1

Don't forget to buy the $2 shipping insurance on the $5.99 shipping fee! Seems like the shipping is the biggest part of the investment afterall !

Yes, it costs $6 to ship one of these. They aren't ripping people off at all... this is just like every other jackoff on ebay trying to make a buck off the wristbands.

"This is the same wristbands seen on Lance and girlfriend Sheryl Crow, as well as many other celebrities such as President Bush, John Kerry,Tom Hanks, Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Adrien Brody, Brett Ratner, Ashley Judd, Alexandra Kerry, Derek Jeter, Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Thierry Henry and many, many more."

Now I'm definitely getting another one since all these people are sporting them.

Nowhere in his ad does this person mention the reason for buying the LiveStrong band and what it supports other than what he mentioned here... "In this auction*we are*selling*ONE*(1)*Adult Size, Lance Armstrong NIKE LIVESTRONG Yellow*Bracelet/Wristband that was purchased directly from the Lance Armstrong Foundation"

Yeah, $5.99 for the first wristband shipped plus $5.99 for each additional one shipped, plus $2 insurance. This is ebay gone very wrong. Seller is a total jerkoff.

*Sigh* and there is the person selling the pink bands at $16 each, claiming they are "very rare" then you look at the quantity they have, 388...

Did anyone see that eBay comercial last night during the....well I was flipping so it was either the BB game or MNF. It had this nice music and all of these people doing stuff you rarely see like picking trash up off the ground in some city and putting it in the trash. Anyway I am tryign to figure out what it is a comercial for and it ends and the Ebay logo comes up and some line about how people are good and eBay is built on that.

I was like OK SUUUURRRREEEE.
