I'd like to offer up for bid, a 16x20 print of this photo taken during last year's Red Sox World Series Victory Parade:

 
And, to sweeten this auction just a little bit, the winning high bid will also receive a gift...a 10x20 size print of this photo taken prior to the start of Game 1 of the 2013 World Series:

 
The auction will end at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15th. 
 
Kate, Steve, Clayton, and Sean are doing the hard work of putting feet to the pavement on Marathon Monday...I know there are lots of us here who have been affected by cancer and welcome the chance to help support this fight.  It's also an opportunity to realign how we honor this day...focusing on the power of strength and healing over something else. 
 
SoSH is an amazing community...it's never surprising, but always inspiring to see how folks come together.  I hope you bid often on all of the upcoming auctions...and, if anyone has questions, please let me know...
 
Shall we start the bidding at $50?

If anyone wants the parade picture, add $100 to my bid and it's yours. I really want the Game 1 shot.

Thank you for the interest and support, BtP & Rooster!  Not sure if there's interest, but I'd be willing to offer a 2nd pair of these photos if you wanted to match BtP's high bid, Rooster...otherwise, happy to work it this way too...whatever you'd like.
 
Thanks again!

Yes - I'd definitely take both for $300, unless someone bids higher.

Reminder of the rules:
 
1. It is the job of the auction starter to close the thread and declare the winner.
2. Anti-poaching - If someone bids in the last 5 minutes before closing, the last two bidders will make final "sealed" bids via PM - copy amh03 and me.
3. Once a winner is declared, PM me and I'll give you donation instructions.
4. I will confirm that the donation has been received.
5. It's up to buyer and seller to negotiate delivery.
 
Please DO NOT donate without talking to me first. I'm going to have the winner donate directly to one of our individual fundraising pages, which will save us both time and GoFundMe's fees, allow me to divvy the donations evenly among the four runners, and allow winners to take the charitable deduction and/or do an employer match.

Well, I'd just like to say thank you very much to everyone as I close this auction!
 
It looks as if we have 2 winners - behindthepen & Rooster Crows.  Thank you both very much!  Please work things out with TallerThanPedroia and then let me know where/how I can get some prints to you both! 
 
And thanks again!!  ~Anne
