Pens ROOT Sports Auction/Duffle Bags

Postby PensHckyFan79 on Tue Mar 26, 2013 1:22 pm

I think they did this last year too and sold out before the end of the 1st period if I remember.

A total of 2,200 Penguins Auction Prize Bags will be available for purchase while supplies last - 2,000 online at http://www.pittsburghpenguins.com, and 200 at CONSOL Energy Center for ticket holders.

Did anyone do this last year? Is it work $250?

EDIT: better link http://penguins.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=76550

From the page:

Each Bag contains:

(1) Duffle Bag
(1) Autographed Puck from a current Penguins player
(1) Mario Lemieux “66” T-shirt
(1) Penguins Baseball Hat
(1) Penguins Yearbook
(1) Penguins Autograph Book
(1) In the Room DVD
(1) Penguins Media Guide
Mystery Item (ONE of the following):
Autographed jersey* from a current Penguins player or Mario Lemieux
Mario Lemieux or Bryan Trottier autographed puck with wooden puck stand and engraved plaque with Hall of Fame induction year
Civic Arena Ornament

*125 randomly selected Penguins Charity Prize Bags will contain an autographed Jersey as the special mystery item.


So it sounds like 125 of the bags are worth over $250 and 1875 of them are worth around $75 at best.

We loved our duffel bag last year. We didn't get the jersey, but our puck was signed by none other than Le Magnifique himself (an extremely pleasant surprise). Got a bunch of other cool goodies, really liked the melted Mellon Arena water, complete with the specks of rubber and dirt. Definitely both something we will cherish.

I would assume most that buy these don't really care what's inside, that they do it for charity, and if they end up getting something really awesome, IE something signed by Sid or Mario or Geno etc, they look at it as icing on the cake.

Apparently I had 34.90 on my paypal account, news to me, so it only cost me $215.10 than I don't really have. Gonna have to watch the next 2 games at home to balance this one out.

We got an Engelland signed puck, and another signed puck by 66. Good haul for a good cause.

Fedex says its delivered already.... So now I get to wait until I get home to find out what the mystery was!

EDIT: And hope it is still on the porch when I get home. :scared:
(Had a UPS package stolen off the porch in October 2006 - had a white Malkin jersey in it)
