Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Miracle Blesses eBay

A partially eaten piece of a grilled cheese sandwich has become the most talked about item on eBay over the past week, bringing in bids of almost $19,000. Don’t get me wrong, this is not ordinary grilled cheese sandwich. You see, it’s a miracle. The sandwich is blessed with the image of the Virgin Mary. We’ve seen it before, the Virgin Mary image popping up on car windows, buildings, and spilt water, but now this 10 year old miracle is for sale on eBay. Oh yeah, the sandwich has not molded in 10 years while being kept in nothing but cotton balls and its owner has won over $70,000 at casinos since being blessed with the miracle sandwich.

The Associated Press reports that In her eBay auction offering, Diana Duyser, 52, of Hollywood, Fla., claims she noticed the image when she bit into the sandwich all those years ago – and thought better of finishing it. Duyser says in her eBay entry that she’s kept the sandwich encased in plastic, which has somehow “miraculously” preserved it. Duyser also claims the sandwich wedge has “blessed” her home: She’s pulled in $70,000 in casino winnings – she promises to show receipts.

The amazing part of this whole story is the entrepreneurial spirit of those who list items on eBay, the Internet’s largest search based online auction site. In just two days there are already sandwich replicas, tshirts, and decals. Just do a search for “Virgin Mary Cheese“.

“I would like people to know that I do believe that this is the Virgin Mary Mother of God,” she posted on her auction site. At press time the cheese sandwich has brought in 9 bids at almost $19,000.

    american culture rules. thank you jesus. you died for your sins, and as a result we give you these blessed works.

  • Ken

    Amazing and to think this lady is published in some book called “The Bible”

  • K

    Never knew it was possible to pay for my university tuition with a piece of bread.

  • Joe

    Maybe it’s not the sandwich that’s blessed… the cotton and plastic baggie MUST truly be from the King of Kings.

  • Loren Baker

    If it’s not blessed, how could of it have stayed in the same condition for so long.

    I wonder what would happen if you ate it?

  • Lisa

    I don’t know what’s more ridiculous…the fact that someone would pay $19,000.00 for a grilled cheese sandwich when that money could be used to feed several thousand truly needy and starving people, or the fact that a ten year old grilled cheese sandwich has not decomposed.

  • Ken

    Yea but look at the people who are bidding on it. SOme have no previous bids or their ebay rank is negative.

  • hmm

    yah, but ebay is screening all the bidders

  • Toni

    How can she prove that it is ten years old anyway?

  • Dou9

    Since no one knows what Mary really looked like, how do we know the image looks like Mary?

  • Help me pay my bills

    FOR SALE: and . Please send an email to the address you are interested in with your offer. Thanks.

  • Terry

    Maybe we should get the sandwich carbon dated 🙂

  • tommo

    Ahem.. Most American white bread has enough sugar and preservatives to keep it from moulding. The fact that it was toasted tells us that most of the moisture was removed, leaving little for bacteria/mould to grow on. Cheese does not “spoil”, it is already spoilt.

  • Bubba

    it is just bread and cheese so lets just eat it … give it to me ill eat it maybe ill be blessed i am kinda hungry anyways(ten year old sandwich made by a kook fills a mans stomach.

  • virgin mary

  • Father Merrin

    At what point does the Almighty decide that the ultimate representation of the Holy Mother is a cheese sandwich. Coming next on eBay, the Apostle Paul Ham Hoagie!!

  • Nick of the Holy Cheese Grail

    My opinion is that this is an CIA based plot to take over the World. A similar religion based hoax was cast on European society in the 7th century. munster cheese comes from “monasterium” or Monastary cheese. The cheese spread throughout Europe. Now American cheese will influence and conquer the world.

  • Cheese Lover

    It really is freaky that there is a face on the grilled cheese, but I don’t think she can possibly think it is Virgin Mary! Just because there is a face does not mean that it is Mary! Nobody knows what Mary looks like! And anyway, why would anybody ever spend that much money on a 10 year old grilled cheese sandwich? I love… cheese, and I know that grilled cheese does not smell good after one week! What I mean is, in just one WEEK the cheese starts to smell moldy and get all brown. Thats why in the picture the cheese is NOT SHOWING! Have’nt any of you people noticed that? I am only in 4th grade and it seems like I know more than some of you!


    Yeah, Cheese Lover is right, the cheese is not showing at all! I am with you all the way cheese lover!

  • Cheese Lover

    See, at least somebody has a brain. Look, NO CHEESE IS SHOWING! There is a reason for that! Read the 20th comment for more info about this comment.

  • Cheese Lover

    Before I make this comment, I would just like to say that I love god, jesus, and mary very very much. Now the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese is becoming a big thing for some people. If you go on Ebay you will see tons and tons of t-shirts that say stuff about the sandwich and many people are selling grilled cheese they say looks like jesus and mary. Many people are probably not pleaseing Mary and Jesus right now. In the name of the father, son, and the holy spirit, Amen

  • David Springer

    I mentioned in a later post the question why am I busting my a@# everyday on my website when I could simply be carving carrots to look like one of the apostles and selling it?

  • Mark

    Type in cheese sandwich at and see the wild diversification going on.
