Along with that golden ticket and wristband the lucky 17,500 people received to attend today's memorial service was the golden program book. Inside, it is simple, basic and touching: large photos cover pages with messages from La Toya, Tito, Rebbie, Evvy and other family and friends.

"You taught me how to smile. You taught me how to dream. You taught me how to live. Uncle Michael, I will always cherish all of our special moments and blissful time together. I love you much," wrote Jackson's nephew TJ.

On auction-crazy eBay, it didn't take long before the book was being hawked for prices as high as $1000, but with zero bids so far. The second most expensive book has 18 bids and was going for $415 as of 2 p.m.
