From now until Saturday, Dec 30, we are auctioning Five Autographed Americana Music Association (AMA) t-shirts. The shirts originally cost $15, $10 of which the AMA has already donated to the Red Cross (this was done during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina). On top of that, all money from this sale will go to Childreach, a charitable organization that strives to meet the needs of the most needy children.

The t-shirts come in two varieties, blue-ringer style and the more traditional variety. All t-shirts are personally autographed (twice) by Frank Black, with a black and silver marker which looks quite nice and is definitely wearable (though you may not want to risk eating anything messy!) and are sized medium.

This auction will be for the blue ringer-styled t-shirts pictured below. There is a reserve bid placed to ensure that we're not short-changing the charity or the man behind this effort, OldManInACoffeeCan, and all bids placed here are to be considered binding (at the penalty of permanent expulsion from FB.Net for anyone not taking this seriously).

The bid price includes the t-shirt, worldwide postage, and a bonus CD. The highest two bidders in this auction will each win a shirt, with choice of which one (the autographs are styled differently on each) to go to the bidders in order from highest to lowest in this auction. The CDs will likewise be chosen by the highest bidder down, but from both auctions combined. The highest collective bid will also receive a free autographed Cult of Ray-era poster.

We will make sure you receive a tax-deductable receipt if this is possible for your specific country and the charity.

So, to place a bid, all you have to do is make a post with the amount. Subsequent bids must be at least $1 higher. The opening price for the bids will be $30 (remember, this is for an autographed t-shirt, a bonus CD, and shipping, and includes a $10 made to the Red Cross). This is the season for giving, and what better time to help needy children than at Christmas. The best of luck making your donations, and thanks to Richard for doing all this!

[from the News page here at fb.net, http://www.frankblack.net/news/ ]

"We've contacted Frank & Violet and they've asked that we donate any proceeds from the
auction to Child Reach, an organization that strives to help children in need. What could
be a more appropriate time of year to do so?"

This is so cool. Thanks to all for setting this up! Maybe it will become a holiday tradition here. I definately plan on bidding once I talk to my better 1/2. :) We have alot going on right now in terms of expenses for the new house, so I prob won't be the highest bidder but hopefully I can bid high enough to get one of the t shrits.

Thanks to all of you again for setting this up! This is such a great idea!

Dean, please let me know the email address to pay with pay pal.

I will be in and out most of the day but want to give you guys the $$ as soon as possible.

Hurray, I got me a shirt!

SOTE, I don't think it would be a probelem, but you might want to get K's opinion due to your unconventional bid. It's all good because it's for a non profit. I am guessing you would want to count your bid in here, but it probably utimately depends no what tshrit you want. We'd all get to pick the same thing anyway, but you'd just be able to pick which ones you want. So I don't really think it makes a difference. I would just go and post in the thread that you want the t shirt because of the way it looks.

Shine, I'll need to hear from you and Kathryn by email. Kathryn needs to be okay with it, which she might very understandably not be because there are only two of these shirts and your bid would mean she doesn't win anything in this auction. I think that winning in the other thread will be out of the question unless I don't hear from some of the people who joined just to bid on the auction.

As for details of payment, please send me an email and we'll get things sorted as soon as possible, basically I'll need to sort out shine first though, since I need to know who wins which auction and who the overall winner is for both auctions as far as selecting CDs goes. $100 CDN would be about $87 US which would put Shine in the number one spot for selecting one of these two shirts as well as the CD.

There'll be a new thread when I've heard from everyone, but K, K, and shine please email me.

Isn't there a second winner? You can be the second winner. Shiner doesn't count because he's bidding with inferior Canadian dollars, eh?

heehe I don't know. I just want the most money to go to the charity. I can't bid more really. So if it's you and Shine, then I am out?? I will still make a small donation if I don't get anything.

I'm afraid I have decided I can't accept any bids after the deadline as I've since received so whatever is listed here before midnight wins. I'm waiting on Child Reach to return my email before I contact everyone with info.

I just realized that last post was a little vague. I think K won that one, but I could be wrong. I'll look into this seriously when Child Reach gets back to me (I've never seen someone delay so long when people are sending them money, but...)

OK, here we are with the winners of the auction. Still waiting on the charity to return my correspondence, but in the meantime, please email me with your choices ranked in order and we'll sort out who has to choose again after if there's still a conflict after that:

Overall ranking (for use in CD selection):
`'`''`'`''`'`'`
1) The FumanBru ($80 US)
2) Majeux ($76 US)
3) Westport-ma-wusum ($75 US)
4) Daisy Girl ($55 US)
5) Kathryn ($50 US)

Auction 1
`'''``''`
1) The FumanBru
2) Majeux
3) Westport-ma-wusum

Auction 2
`'''``''`
1) Daisy Girl
2) Kathryn

All told, we raised about $350 for Child Reach which is commendable, thank you guys for participating including those who didn't win the auction. If anyone wants to make a donation anyway or up their donation that would be very generous and I am happy to do it, but it won't change the final rankings.

Thanks again, congratulations, and I'll be in touch when I hear from the necessary parties.

Anyway this really puts me in a good mood, so thanks again.

(Dean, I prob can only pay paypal from home so that means night just to let you know too :) )

Well that's ultra-generous of you, Kathryn! I may have a special gift up my sleeve anyway since you'd be getting nothing. I guess that means that Shine's bid for $100 CDN ($87 US) is also in. Let me poke around my supplies K and see what I can dig up...

Wow, these are very impressive results from the two auctions. All of you bidders
were so very generous with your bids.

Your generosity and giving spirit is much appreciated by myself, Dean, Brian, Dave,
Violet, Charles, and most importantly, the children of Child Reach.

[And Kathryn, if Shine is willing to accept your kind offer, then I, too,
will poke around my supplies of Frank goodies and see what I can find for you...]

Here are the track listings of the CDs and I've selected the 5th CD to offer (I only listed 4 because I was having a difficult time with choosing the 5th, however, after seeing these impressive winning auction bids I've decided to include one of my all-time favorite Frank Single/EP's: YOU AIN'T ME)

None of these CD's are autographed, by the way.

So, Brother fu you may want to change your selection of CD's considering the addition of YOU AIN'T ME(German edition)


YOU AIN'T ME [Germany](tracks: 1. You Ain't Me, 2. You Never Heard About Me, 3. Pray a Little Faster, 4. Announcement)



TEENAGE FANCLUB (tracks: 1. Handyman, 2. The Man Who Was Too Loud, 3. The Jacques Tati, 4. Sister Isabel)



MEN IN BLACK (non-digipak with UK Tour dates sticker and survey card included inside) (Tracks: 1. Men In Black, 2. You Never Heard About Me, 3. Pray A Little Faster, 4. Announcement)



MEN IN BLACK (digipak, UK Tour dates sticker, AND numbered limited edition #05584) (tracks: 1. Men In Black, 2. Just A Little, 3. Re-Make/Re-Model)



NADINE US Single(tracks: 1. Nadine (SMYT's album version), 2. Hermaphroditos (Live version), 3. Los Angeles (Live version), 4. Jane The Queen of Love (Live version), 5. Gouge Away (Live version) tracks #2,3,4,5 were recorded live for CBC Radio 3 on April 4, 2003 at The State in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

2. You ain't me
3. Men In Black Digipak
4. Nadine
5. Men in black non digipak

Thanks again guys!!!

OK, Daisy, you've got the first t-shirt and we'll have to wait on the others to say which CD.
