Item description

Ok Here’s the situation:
Lots of drama with ce editions of gnr. Pinside is on fire about people not getting them. I ordered direct and have confirmation from Jen that I have one. But I feel bad about having one even though it may not be a keeper for me, as I’m not a huge gnr fan.

I really want it to go to a fan, but I also know there's many fans that want them, so I'm not just going to sell it at retail to the lucky dude who hears about it first. But I also don't want to make any money or be a flipper. So, here’s my plan: There's a little Cambodian orphanage ( https://www.cicfo-usa.org/ ) I support and we visited once as a family and did free dental work on the sweet children there (it changed our lives, btw, and we were scheduled to go back in the spring, but, covid...). Anyway, I’m doing an auction style thing where the person who commits to donate the most to this orphanage wins the right to buy the pin from me at retail (you pay shipping or pick it up at the factory, as usual). The donation is tax deductible (it’s a legit US based 503-c charity) so it won't be too bad. This way the person most motivated to ACTUALLY have the pin (vs a speculator) will get the chance at a nib CE. Let the market dictate! I heard second hand about one that’s already flipped for $20k! I’m setting a reserve price at a donation of $3000 because I already had one offer at that level (total pin cost $15,500 plus shipping and tax). Any lower than that, and I’ll just donate to the orphanage and keep the pin for myself. Or flip it in good conscience.

No subjectivity about who got screwed worst by their distro or JJP. If you want it the most, commit to the highest (tax deductible) donation to a great cause. I’ll keep a running post of the highest “bidder” in the forum thread linked to this listing. If you want to post your bid in the forum thread directly, feel free. If you want to be anonymous, make your “bid” directly to me in a dm, and I’ll post it in the thread.

PLEASE remember I’m just a guy trying to do a nice thing for some of the poorest people on the planet. I’ll pay the pinside listing fees out of my own pocket too! If any of this makes you angry or cynical, please take those feelings elsewhere on pinside. There are plenty of threads dedicated to rage. We are talking about a toy that will make you happy and can hopefully make some orphans lives better.

I’ll end the listing Saturday but please don’t wait to bid till then. In the end, it’s going to be the plain old highest bidder that wins. Sniping at the last minute won’t help. Please remember this is a good cause and tax deductible, so your wife really can’t be mad, right?!!
