Ha!  :o  ;D  ;D  ;D

Given the great feedback score of the seller, this is definitely a typo. He/she probably meant to put $5.99.
But I wonder what would happen if somebody did buy it at that price.  ::)

Possibly a typo, but as far as I understand it may be a way to work the system on ebay.  If you list your item out of stock you drop in the lists or something like that, so instead of listing items as out of stock they make the price insane so no one will buy one while you restock.

I believe it’s something like this. I think sellers may also do it to have there name/eBay-store show up high in the search when someone sorts “highest price first”.
