If you’re trying to sell that program or ticket from Kobe and Gianna’s celebration of life service, don’t even think about using eBay. The popular online auction and shopping site is removing any items related to the event from its website.
Enforcing its policy, which prohibits sellers from profiting off “human tragedy or suffering,” eBay is refusing to sell any items or memorabilia from Kobe and Gianna’s memorial service that took place earlier this week in the Staples Center. As expected, TMZ exclusively reported that souvenirs from the service such as ticket stubs to program booklets and the prices for the items are in thousands of dollars. The average starting bid for “memorial bundles” is around $3,000, and if you don’t feel like going through a bidding war, $5,000. One XL shirt has already sold for $2,025.
Now TMZ Sports s reporting eBay is working frantically to pull down those items with the celebrity gossip site reporting that multiple listings have begun to disappear from eBay from over the past 24 hours.
