Vice President Joe Biden seems to have gotten his hands on (or in?) a hot commodity at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic games.

Biden, seen at left, was photographed repeatedly in the bright red wool mittens emblazoned with a maple leaf on the palm.

These seemingly simple $10 mittens are going for hundreds of dollars on E-Bay. The Embassy of Canada recently gave them out as party favors at their winter Olympic games. The gloves come in small/medium and large/extra large sizes.
