Casey Anthony Halloween Mask Sparks $24K eBay Bidding War

| by Kate Wharmby Seldman

A rubber Casey Anthony Halloween mask is on sale on eBay, and it's currently going for $24,200.

The mask, which looks remarkably like the acquitted killer, has already been bid on by 84 people. The item's billed as "CASEY ANTHONY LATEX RUBBER MASK EXT. RARE," and is being sold by a seller whose screen name is "prophunter." The seller has 357 feedback items and 100% positive feedback, so it's very likely this mask exists, rather than the auction being a joke.

According to the seller, the mask was sculpted for a parody video, and nine exist. The one on sale is numbered six of nine. In the description portion of the eBay listing, the seller says he kept one of the nine masks for himself because he knows they will become collectors' items.

Casey Anthony was acquitted earlier this month of the crime of killing her daughter, Caylee. She was released from jail two weeks ago after a judge reduced her sentence based on time served and good behavior.

The auction ends on Wednesday, July 27, at 9PM ET.

The description from the seller: Halloween is only a few months away. Forget Freddy, Jason, Meyers, here's your chance to scare the *#&% out of everyone and win every costume contest with this amazing Tot Mom latex rubber mask, possibly the most frightening mask on the planet. And I can almost guarantee it's the 'only' Casey mask on the planet. Sculpted to precision for a parody video by enigmatic pop artist / sculptor Torro, only 9 of these film props were made for production and I got my hands on a few after the video wrapped. One of the best Halloween masks I've ever seen. This one is in excellent condition and it is numbered 6 of 9. I kept one for myself because I know these will be priceless. A significant piece of crime history. No matter what your opinion of the trial is, this is still one heck of a conversation piece. I bet Nancy Grace would love one of these. Fits most heads sizes comfortably. Let's never forget poor Caylee. Production used prop, item sold as is. Free shipping in the Cont. U.S. Feel free to ask any questions.
