At the urging of a particular mod, I'm posting this week's update on the online auction to benefit a scholarship for the Michigan students who volunteer as managers and athletic trainers for the Michigan varsity sports teams. Bidding total is just over $5,000 for the week so thanks to those of you who have jumped in.

I was hoping to spotlight a couple of REALLY CHEAP ITEMS that haven't drawn many if any bids. For example:

1) '10-'11 Michigan Basketball team card set with Zack Novak card autographed - Starting Bid is $1  !!!!!   

Here's the link:

2) 2012 Sugar Bowl official game program signed by MGoBlog favorite Jordan Kovacs and Craig Roh. Starting bid is only $20

5) Michigan Basketball Package that gets you the same '10-'11 basketball team card set with the autographed Zack Novak card AND a flag autographed by Gary Grant. Starting bid is $1

6) Big Chill in the Big House official puck signed by Michigan's goalie Shawn Hunwick. Starting bid is $40.

There are a ton of other great items that haven't received any bids AND there are a six items that feature BUY NOW items that don't require bididng including autographed items from Desmond Howard, Red Berenson, Jake Rudock and Graham Glasgow. 

Don't forget, every dollar over the value of the unsigned item is a tax deductible gift to the University of Michigan and you'll get a gift letter from the University accordingly. You're not getting a tax deduction for the memorabilia you buy on ebay. Nor are you helping out a worthy cause.

Thanks for your time and I hope you'll check it out. Here's the link to see all of the available items:…
