There are lots of goofy situations where the shipping is a disproportionate amount of the item cost. Ordering any 1 item less than $25 from many places will get you a shipping cost, that if you had any sense, you'd just cancel the whole thing. This one was particularly dumb, but they aren't the only ones to do something like this.

Btw, the sleeve costs $29.99, which is more than $25.
