Schwartz/Cuban Autographed Jersey up for auction

It's been a wild year since Jonathan Schwartz was a baller at our annual Customer Engineering Conference. After he agreed to go along with my sight gag, he graciously autographed the jersey and then we got Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, to autograph it as well.

At the time, I promised that we'd auction the jersey off in support of our work with ONE.org, the organization fighting poverty and AIDS that has been most closely associated with U2's Bono and his TED prize from 2005.

Quite honestly, the jersey project got side tracked when my family decided to move cross-Jersey last spring, and I only recently uncovered it while digging through my home office "supplies" closet (looking for glue sticks, if you need the unvarnished and sticky truth).

Today, I put the jersey up for auction. 100% of the proceeds will go to Oxfam America, one of ONE.org's partners in fighting hunger. Getting the auction set up was made trivial by eBay's work with MissionFish, allowing me to select the recipient, build the listing, and set up the flow of funds with a few button clicks. The hardest part of the whole thing was getting sharp pictures of the Sharpie work.

The auction runs through the end of March. If you want to check out the goods (and hopefully make a bid) you'll find the auction action here.
