Canadian Hockey, The Beatles & Me at Rock Island Jumer’s

Tomorrow I will be shooting the annual Children’s Therapy Center Sports Memorabilia Auction, which is at Jumer’s in Rock Island starting at 5:30 p.m.

I took photos recently of most of the live auction items which will be projected on two large screens for the audience to see. Most of the autographed sports items (football helmets, baseballs, footballs, basketballs, etc…) also will be accompanied with a picture bio slide projected of the athlete or coach.

Marv Cook, former NFL player in the early to mid-’90s and former Iowa Hawkeye, will be the keynote speaker. Prior to that you can find him signing autographs at the Black & Gold Shop in Davenport.

After that, expect some hardcore bidding wars over a few unique items up for grabs – like these:

Hooters Golf Bag with 8 rounds of golf at Crow Valley; Vancouver 2010 Olympic package that includes signed hockey pucks from the Chicago Blackhawk players who were also part of the Gold Medal Canadian Hockey Team

Beatles Logo Guitar, autographed by Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney and longtime Beatles record producer Sir George Martin

Autographed basketballs by Kareem Abdul-Jabar and Bobby Knight

And last but not least, from yours truly:

Tickets are $40 per person or $350 for a Corporate Table of 10. The live auction starts at 7.

Hope to see you there!
