Then again, the price tag has been generally higher on the auction site, going as high as $599. NBC News reported that the prices ranged from 99 cents to $9,995 and said it found 387 offers for the magazine.

After the presidential election was won by Republican candidate Donald Trump, multiple news organizations reported that Newsweek magazine had published 125,000 copies of a commemorative magazine with Clinton’s photo on the cover and the headline “Madam President.” The price tag was $10.99.

Those copies were recalled, replaced by an issue commemorating Trump’s victory. Topix Media, a Newsweek licensee, designed both a Clinton and a “President Trump” cover before the vote. Topix is a specialty publisher from New York that produces special editions for several media companies. Topix published a commemorative issue for Newsweek after golfing great Arnold Palmer died on Sept. 25.

Since many major polls had predicted a Clinton victory, Topix decided to print and ship 125,000 copies of the Clinton edition ahead of the election. Only 17 copies were actually sold.

Tony Romando, Topix's CEO, told the  New York Post , “Like everybody else, we got it wrong.”

Newsweek wrote a disclaimer on Twitter, tweeting that “ commemorative covers were produced for both Clinton and Trump "by a Newsweek licensee, Topix Media, and not by Newsweek."

“All wholesalers and retailers have been asked to return any issues they have as we need to clear room for [150,000 copies of] the President Trump issue,” Romando told the New York Post. “We expect it to sell very well as there is obviously a great demand.”

  • A Texas woman is recovering after a life-threatening ordeal in the Arizona desert. Texas college student Amber VanHecke, 24, ran out of gas on a sightseeing trip to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon on March 12. >> Read more trending news She was traveling by herself and told ABC News that she made a wrong turn based on directions from her GPS. She ended up in the middle of nowhere and making matters worse she couldn’t get cellphone reception.  But she was prepared because she had traveled alone before. 'I planned out my itinerary, had it posted on Facebook and stuff and off I went with some non-perishables and water,' ABC News reported. As one day turned into two, she started writing messages on notebook paper and created a “help” sign out of rocks. It wasn’t until the fourth day that she decided to start walking to try and get a signal for her cellphone. She managed to talk to a 911 operator briefly before she lost the call, but it was long enough.  An air rescue crew from the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office was sent to look for her. The crew found her car and a note she had left explaining that she had started walking east, media outlets reported. They also spotted her “help” sign from the air. They eventually located her based on all the clues she left behind. The Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a statement Wednesday on its website that VanHecke had run out of food and was almost out of water when she was found on March 17, five days after her ordeal began. 'When she left the vehicle, she left notes so we knew where to find her. She did everything right,' trooper paramedic Eddie Bissonette said. 'She was treated at the scene for exposure, placed in the helicopter, and transported to the trauma center in Flagstaff,' according to the statement. VanHecke managed to stay positive about the harrowing experience, posting about her ordeal on Facebook. “I must be Irish because the luck was definitely with me today to get found.”
