That price makes a whole lot of sense for an item like this, to be honest. Similar items, the Orb of the Sin'dorei and the Orb of Deception are both pretty rare. It's unusual that this one was so cheap, but it's probably a side effect of the item originally only having one charge in earlier incarnations of the item. Nowadays it has infinite uses but with a cooldown, so that higher price is deserved. You still have a chance to get it before the price change, and I really recommend you do. Especially when you consider the other change coming to the Relics and the Sons of Hodir.
Sons of Hodir reputation will be made a little easier using these Relics, because you'll be able to turn them in ten at a time to the Sons Quartermaster for 250 reputation per turn-in. I highly, highly recommend buying the boot flask as soon as possible at the current 10 Relic price if you want it, or you'll have wasted 240 perfectly good Relics! That's 6,000 rep you could have earned. Or, you know, a ton of gold on the auction house since they'll no longer be BoP.
