It’s another free listing weekend (eBay are surpassing themselves for once), I will be adding some more auctions online tomorrow during the afternoon, in between writing a couple of assessment papers. Fun. Oh and going to Hampden, and drinking as it is Sheena’s birthday. Busy day.
AWESOME mail in the post this morning, with Brighton & Hove Albion striker Craig Mackail-Smith adding his support to the auctions. I had written to Craig a while ago and the letter went missing when he moved house, so sent another letter at Craig’s request. It would appear both letters eventually showed up as all my items came back signed this morning. Included was this awesome Xmas Card with added doodle for the Xmas Auction. Footballers rarely take the time to doodle, so I’m delighted Craig took the time to create something for auction. He also sent some other signed items which will be included in auctions in coming weeks.
I took one of my regular trips down to Celtic Park this morning, partly to add some more general items to my auctions, and partly to get some specific items which had been requested of me in exchange for a nice donation into the charity pot. One of the items for the private buyer was this stunning 10×8 celebration photo which is now signed by six of the first team pictured. As always, if anyone has any special requests please do get in touch with me to see if there is something that can be worked out.
I also added in a couple of new birthday cards for auction including this multi signed effort from several of the first team. I also got individual cards signed by new fans’ favourite Charlie Mulgrew, Georgios Samaras and this from Emilio Izzaguire, literally THE best signature I have ever seen from him.
The birthday card will be among the cards up for auction tomorrow so keep an eye out for LOADS of awesome items as the fundraising continues 🙂
The final bit of awesome news today, so by no means the least important of the day’s updates was the addition of a new match worn item to my list of donations. Celtic ‘keeper Fraser Forster (pictured right with me earlier this season) was kind enough to agree to donate a pair of his gloves before the season ends. HUGE thanks to one of the nicest guys in the game for his generosity 🙂
Tune back in tomorrow for those auctions !
