Olympic torches are some of the rarest and most desirable of all Olympic collectibles.
Unlike Olympic pins, which sell for fairly cheap and are easy to come by, an Olympic torch can cost an obscene amount of money.
According to Fusion, right now on eBay, there are hundreds of Olympic torches for sale—some of them at astounding prices.
Torches from the 2012 London Olympics are listed anywhere from $3,000 to $6,500.
Last year an Olympic torch carried by Caitlyn Jenner at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics sold at auction for $24,000 which is well over its tangible worth.
The 1952 Helsinki Summer Games torch sold for nearly $400,000 at auction in Paris in 2011.
Meanwhile, torches used just this year for the Rio Olympics are already being listed at $4,000.

The most expensive watch ever sold at auction fetched just under $24 million in November 2014. The gold pocket watch was made by Patek Philippe, and is the most complex ever made without the use of computer technology.
The Henry Graves Supercomplication was commissioned in 1925, and took eight years to make.
The world's most expensive stamp sold at auction in 2014 for over $9 million.
The British Guiana One-Cent Magenta is as rare as a stamp can get. British Guiana was one of the first countries in the New World to start issuing stamps, but in 1856, they ran out, and asked the local newspaper printer to produce extras.
There were two denominations: the four-cent, which is very rare, and the one-cent - of which only one has ever been discovered.
In May 2015, an anonymous London businesswoman snapped up the licence plate KR15 HNA for £233,000, making it the most expensive standard number plate ever to be sold in the UK.
Queen Victoria's bloomers sold at auction for £6,200, along with a pair of her silk stockings.
They have a 52-inch waist, and belonged to the monarch in the 1890s - "towards the end of her life when she had eaten a lot more than most people could afford to," said auctioneer Michael Hogben. In today's sizing, they'd be a size 26.
In 2014, a three-year-old slice of cake sold at auction for $7,500 (£4,800). The reason the stale cake was in such demand was that it was from the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton in 2011.
The buyer said he intended to give it away as part of promoting his Silicon Valley start-up.
A British coin sold at auction for a record-breaking £430,000 in 2014. After fees, the buyer paid £516,000 - making it the most expensive modern British coin ever to be sold.
The coin is only one of two in existence. It was a 'proof' for a gold sovereign which was meant to be produced to commemorate the coronation of Edward VIII in 1937. However, Edward abdicated in 1936, so the coronation never happened and the coins were never made
