***************************


Folks, with all the negative energy around LE flipping, time to redirect that to some good.

I was fortunate enough to score a Stern Insider Rush LE (fully paid for, being shipped to me directly from Stern). I am putting that up for charity auction.

Every penny above what I've paid to Stern ($12,282.43 USD after sales tax and shipping) will be donated to the Glioblastoma Foundation in honor of Rush drummer Neil Peart (https://glioblastomafoundation.org/news/tribute-to-rush-drummer-neil-peart/neil-peart).

To sweeten the deal, I will personally match the donation amount dollar for dollar, up to a maximum of $5000. By way of example, rounding to keep math simple, if winning bid is $16k and all in $12k goes to Stern, I will donate $8000 ($4k flip for good profit, plus $4k from me as a thank you to the bidder for digging deep) to the Glioblastoma Foundation.

If others feel moved to help sweeten the deal or donate something to the auction, drop a PM. Happy to pile on and do even more good. I will update this post with any sweeteners that folks are moved to contribute.

Yes, the whole "buy to flip" thing is way out of hand, but hopefully this is a chance for a pinball loving Rush super fan to do some good, and feel good about their LE purchase.

Let's dig deep folks, and Flip for Good!!

Ray


******** SWEETENERS ***********

An anonymous pinsider has pledged $100 donation to Glioblastoma Foundation

The team at @Hemispheres has stepped WAY up and pledge to match the donation as well (3x the premium will be going to charity)...wow! Kurt, beers on me buddy

Another anonymous pinside has pledged $100 donation for the cause

@Vino has kicked in a $100 donation in honor of Neil (my "owe a beer" list is happily growing)


********************************

Terms:

Pin is being delivered to San Diego California. Buyer to pick up or arrange shipping at own expense. I'm happy to work with you to get the pallet to your shipper. Sale complete as soon as pallet leaves my garage.

Bid by private message to me please. I will post top bid to the thread to preserve privacy of bidders (although if you want to post to the thread to show support, please go ahead...I will go by bids to my PM though)

Auction ends the moment when the pallet touches the ground in my garage. I will post with a pic to the thread so we have a timestamp set.

Payment by cash or bank transfer please (for clarity, bid is price net to me, so we don't eat into the donation value)

I will work with buyer to arrangement payment/pickup/shipping. I'll post final donation details here with a final thank you when all is said and done.

For any sweeteners being offered by others, so I'm not a middle man, winner to work directly with them.

If suggestions come through on how to improve this process, I'll check with top bidder if they're OK with the change, and if so, update these terms.

(Special thanks to Robin and the Pinside crew for signing off on this auction, and their support to help make it happen...thanks guys!)
