Around Games Time you could be able to find the one from the related games for around 400/500 USD, as there is plenty of them coming at that time on the market !

In the past Torch Bearers were able to buy torches at a cost around 300 Euros / 400 USD ! In London apparently it will be at 199 GBP (245 Euros / 325 USD)

Wow 200 pounds like 350 bucks here but do you have to be a torch bearer or can anyone buy it?

I'll keep an eye out for them on ebay and post them on here.

Do Olympic bid books pop up on ebay when it gets close to the games?

I finally got a Lillehammer Olympic Torch a few months ago when I was in Vegas. That was one awkward thing to get through an airport.

The official torch. Found it in a pawn shop, got it for 350. Had the box, holder and all the paperwork too.

^^ Funny you should say that because last year someone was selling both the Sydney 2000 torch and Melbourne 2006 Queen's Baton. They went for around 2800 AUD if I recall.

Pretty cool torch even if it is a youth olympics, pricey though, but it has interest 3 offers

Pricey because very very rare !!! At the opposite of the usual Olympic Torch Relay, the Innsbruck Youth One was not a relay of the flame from a torch to another... but a relay of a single torch.

To avoid producing a lot of torches, so to save money, they only produce a very few that mostly did the entire relay !

That is the basic relay :

That's a very rare one :

Oh wow that must be worth alot then! I didn't get to buy anything from the website about to go check if it's still open. I can't wait for discounted merchandise :D

Nope nothing, thats a shame they're hard to find my uncle went to Singapore last year and found nothing from the youth olympics!

Well here's a 2010 torch :)http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Singapore-2010-Youth-Olympic-Torch-Set-Case-Manual-Fuel-/260985450811?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc3f1f13b#ht_1741wt_1270

Worth what? If the Youth Olympics turn into squat in a few years time, then it's just some sort of historical memorabilia, a monument to an attempt for a smaller scaled Olympics style event that just wasn't popular enough to see continue.

Here's the torch for the Moscow 1998 Youth Olympics. The first such attempt to try and get such an event to become mainstream and work in a 4 year basis.

World youth games not Olympics but wow things you learn. Didn't think it'd be a hit didn't make news here one tiny bit when an Aussie won some medal that's it, then again winter Olympics aren't massive here either cause we aren't that good. Maybe the summer 2010 one was? I can't remember

I already got a Torino 2006 one, for half the price the one on ebay is going for. But for an unused one, I guess it's worth it.

Made and designed by Pininfarina, an Italian design company, well known for designing cars for a variety of car makers, not just Italian brands.
