V.I.P. tour (FOR YOU AND A GUEST!) will consist of a bratwurst cookout, a selection of canned craft beers, and, of course, a museum souvenir prize pack consisting of your Certificate of Beer Can Appreciation, refrigerator magnets (the new batch came in and they are STYLIN'), postcards, and some collectible cans for you to cherish.
If you bid on the museum tour but don't think you can actually make it to East Taunton (since airfare is not included), I will be including in the deal a collection of new print books from my office, including 'Knuckler' by Tim Wakefield, 'Hitter: The Life and Turmoils of Ted Williams' (By Ed Linn), and a fantastic variety of other books (Mysteries, Cookbooks, Sports, History, and more) that will not disappoint you (I will ship to the winner). OK, the Ted Williams book isn't hot off the press, it's been in my office for years, but it's still a good read! The retail value of the books alone will be at least a couple hundred dollars.
Some additional titles in the book package:
-The Perfect Reclpe (cookbook) by Pam Anderson
-The Lower Rlver (Paul Theroux) - hot off the press.
-T0 End All War (Adam Hochschild)
-October Men (Roger Kahn) : Reggie Jackson, George Steinbrenner, Billy Martin, and the Yankees' Miraculous finish in 1978
-Big R0ads (Earl Swift) Untold Story of the Engineers, Visionaries, and Trailblazers who created the American Superhighways.
-Arnle & Jack (Ian O'Connor) : Palmer, Nicklaus, and Golf's Greatest Rivalry.
-'Are You My Mother' (autographed) - by Alison Bechdel. This graphic novel hit #1 on the New York Times list.

-'T0 End all Wars' : A Story of Loyalty and Rebellion, 1914-1918 (Adam H0chschild) - New York Times Bestseller
- Some cool Hobbit books to tie in with the upcoming film! And some Curious George books for the kiddies!
Good Luck. I think a fair starting bid is $50.
