I would pay top dollar for a game ripped Shane Battier poster from the Rockets game in the 2006-07 season.

Usely I don't participate this type of event, but the Grizzlies House at St.Jude Children's Research Hospital is a really good deal. I also wouldn't mind having that Darko Jersey I will admit.

Yeah, I would like to have it too, but the news of this auction has spread like a bad case of herpes and I think most of the people, like me, who really want it will be outbid by somebody with deep pockets,
who just bought it because they had the money to do so. At least it will benefit the kids at the Grizzlies House at St. Jude.

Checked the online auction today and its already up to $400.00 bucks. Its for a good cause though. Think the biding closes the 18th.

I hope the people bidding on this realize that it's NOT tax deductible. Well, I suppose you could make an argument that the price in excess of that of an authentic NBA jersey is deductible, but that wouldn't stand up to scrutiny if you were audited due to the uniqueness of the item.

The only comment I can make on these posts. Would be I really feel sorry for you OVintonFan1978.
The Grizzly house at ST. Jude is a realy good cause. A lot of parents have spent every penny they have in hopes of saving their child or love one, and don't have enough money to eat, let alone be able too afford any thing else.

I missed the part where I said that the Grizzlies House is not a worthwhile cause. I was simply trying to be informative--I've been to numerous charity auctions where the auctioneer said "come on people, it's tax deductible" which is almost always incorrect. The website correctly points out that you should consult your tax advisor. Never did I say that you shouldn't bid. At ease, soldier!

So basically you take a joke that I made in response to someone's comment about the Shane Battier posters along with a post where I was trying to convey factual information and you use those to formulate your opinion that I am one to be pitied? You lost me there brother.

Read this went back and reread the thread. Seen the Shane comment. I was wrong an you are correct. Sorry guess I was being a little to touchy about the Grizzly House. I just think it's a good cause. Again I was wrong, and I really do mean it when I say I was wrong and apologize.

No problem, we're cool. I actually put in a bid on the jersey myself but it has gotten out of hand. I'm interested to see what it ends up going for.

Just to put things in perspective a bit...early in the season, a jersey worn by O.J. Mayo and in excellent condition was auctioned by the Grizzlies and sold for about $650. With several days left, an auction for a jersey worn by Darko Milicic and in poor condition is currently at $602. Additionally, a Darko Milicic game-worn autographed jersey and shorts set from the Grizzlies' Spain tour last year can be had for $400 in the Grizzlies team store at FedEx Forum.

I'm glad it went to an actual "Darko" fan and not some rich person who cares nothing about basketball.
