THIS THREAD IS AN AUCTION WITH ALL PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT THE BEN & HANNAH ECTOR FUND. PLEASE BID GENEROUSLY.

My wife and dear friends Colleen and Alisa gave me for my last birthday a BEAUTIFUL, and beautifully framed, limited-edition tour poster of the Allman Brothers Band and Ratdog from the August 2007 dates.

It's hand-signed by GREGG ALLMAN, WARREN HAYNES, JAIMOE, BUTCH TRUCKS, BOB WEIR and the artist. This one is hand-numbered #2 in a series of 60. And it looks totally badass! (Pix below, and I'll try to update with better images soon too.)

We will do this informally -- simply post a bid, and any message you want to add. We'll leave this open indefinitely, till we feel we've gotten the best results for Bill's kids. I'll open the bidding at $100. Let's go in $10 or $20 increments so we can have some fun with it.

On a personal note: I have a son and a daughter and the thought of leaving them behind is a tough one. I know this community to be a generous and open-hearted place filled with good people who have seen life's highs and lows. Let's all band together and help Ben and Hannah during this stormy time.

Here's the poster in its sweet looking frame:





And here's the detail of the Summer tour dates it commemorates:



And here you can see the sigs -- Gregg, Warren, and Jaimoe first:



...and then Butch and X/S which I assume is the artist, along with the 2/60 numbering:



...and of course Mr. Bobby Weir:



OK, DIG DEEP people! And nothing but LOVE and healing vibes speeding out to the Ector clan!!!

Brother, I hear you! LOL. This is obviously not the best time to try and raise some serious money and bid this up, no matter how good the cause (and this is obviously as good a cause as there is).

I've received an anonymous bid from a generous member of this community for $260.

Can we take it higher? I'll be logging off and hitting the hay, being the tired old man I am... and it would be super cool to log in tomorrow and find we were up to 300 for Hannah and Ben...

Anyway, thanks all for the kind words to everyone, but I ain't doing anything but what my Mama raised me to do! It's you guys who are bidding that are really to thank.

People can you feel it?
