Alright, here goes. Brian encouraged me to take a run at emerging technology, something I'm not apt to do, but I'll try it. I posted a while back about an Online Auction to benefit the Bernard "Pat" Maloy Scholarship which is a scholarship given to Michigan students who either have cancer or whose direct family members have it. Every other year we hold a big online auction centered primarily around autographed Michigan sports memorabilia. The website is http://www.umich.cmarket.com
The twelve member committee who runs the scholarship include a bunch of former students of Professor Maloy, almost all of whom work or worked in sports including former Michigan running back and current EMU running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley. Anyway, point being, all of us have direct access to the people signing the stuff so while we may lack the personal finances to set up a scholarship, we do have the connections to get authentic sports memorabilia to auction off to raise the necessary funds. Obviously I encourage you all to check it out and, if you have the financial wherewithall in this foul economy to bid, please do so, the cause is certainly noble.
THAT SAID, I mentioned advice, and advice I require. Although I know how to get a hold of these players, I know next to nothing about what this stuff is worth. What I want to know from you all is whether I've overpriced or underpriced some of these items. Here are some links. I would really appreciate your opinions on our opening bids. I'm surprised we haven't gotten any action on these particular pieces:http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=91943266http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=75917044http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=91661664http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=90328532http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=91161175http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=75987434http://www.cmarket.com/auction/item/Item.action?id=68350528
Again, anything you can tell me such as what you think a reasonable price is or whether something is good, bad, cool, lame or maybe there is something you see that I don't would be greatly appreciated.
