Well, it is certainly true that some fandoms are more active than others. In the space of a day, the Elijah Wood fans had bid his photo from its starting bid of $99 to more than $300.
Our thanks go out to all the fan sites, blogs and Yahoo! Groups list owners that responded to our email with a post to their members.
And a personal thank you from me to my marketing/PR colleagues who have blogged about the auction so far: Elisa Camahort of Worker Bees, Jill Fallon of the Business of Life, Yvonne Divita of Lip-Sticking, Toby Bloomberg of Diva Marketing, Wayne Hurlbert of Blog Business World, and Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz who covered it on the 19 September For Immediate Release podcast.
I learned this week that the photo of Kate Hudson and Kurt Russell is actually a personal photo taken by director Cameron Crowe during the Festival, which means it won’t be available anywhere else but this auction. The picture and the printer are autographed by all three of them. This really would be a special gift for a fan of either actor. If someone wanted to buy it for me, that would be fine too 😉
Seriously, even if you have no desire to own an autographed picture and printer, these photos are really suberb, and it’s fun to see how the stars signed their names. Check out Alan Cumming and Richard E. Grant in particular. You have to click on the slide show, roughly in the middle of each auction page, to see the autographs.
