Barack Obama might be on his way to the White House, but the American election isn’t over on eBay. Souvenir newspapers reporting the historic victory are selling on eBay for prices dozens of times higher than their cover price. A set of ten copies of the New York Times sold for $750, and another lucky buyer got 150 copies of the Chicago Tribune for the same price. Single copies of both papers were sold for more than $100.

(If those buyers sound crazy, you should see the pensioner who had 10,000 copies of his local paper specially printed as an investment.)

On the red team, campaigners for Sarah Palin for President in 2012 are already listing merchandise on eBay, some of it cheekily using Obama’s “yes we can” slogan.

Personally I’m rather fond of this it’s a girl badge (I’ll take a Democrat version if anyone has one): maybe ex-eBay CEO Meg Whitman could use it if she runs for Governor of California in 2010?
