A Month of Monkees: Monkees For Sale
I hope you are enjoying this "Month of Monkess" here at the World of Wonder. As some of you know, my family and I have a scholarship that we started 7 years ago in honor of my late father. Each year, the scholarship is awarded to a graduating high school senior attending one of the schools located on the CT shoreline who plans on pursing a career in the arts. It is called "The Richard S Dart Memorial Arts Scholarship" and so far we have awarded six aspiring artists! To help raise funds for this scholarship I have decided (regrettably) to sell off some items from my prized Monkees collection. So, starting today, I am auctioning off these items on E-Bay in hopes that they will go to good homes! To help me on this "pledge drive", my good friend, Micky Dolenz, has donated some autographed items to put up for auction. All of the signed items came directly from Micky who signed them all personally and each one comes with a certificate of authenticity. All proceeds from these auctions will go towards the scholarship fund and I will include a receipt with each item so that you can claim the auction as a tax deduction.
Here are the items that are up for auction (just click on each one to take you to the auction itself):
The Monkees TV Series Complete VHS Box Set with booklet and collectible watch - Most of these tapes have never even been taken out of the box!
Monkees VHS Tape Collection including NESMITH LIVE, the JUSTUS promo video and two "boots" of Monkees Video appearances on television both as a group and solo. All tapes are in excellent condition!
The Monkees Greatest Hits CD personally signed by Micky Dolenz complete with a certificate of authenticity from the man himself!
An 8'X10" color photo of Micky signed by him complete with a certificate of authenticity from the man himself!
"Micky's Secret Snaps"
- a small photo book featuring pictures taken by Micky Dolenz on the 1967 Monkees tour with Jimi Hendrix personally autographed by Micky!( This item is sooo cool I had a hard time not keeping it for myself!) As with the other autographed items it comes complete with a certificate of authenticity from the man himself!
Daydream Believer Remix 1986 - This is the single that Arista released in October 1986 with a remix of Daydream Believer backed with Randy Scouse Git. It comes complete with the original picture sleeve and is in excellent condition!
Heart and Soul/MBGBT Single 1987 - Excellent condition single released by RHINO in 1987 complete with picture sleeve! This is the regular "black vinyl" release and is in excellent condition!
Heart and Soul/MBGBT Single on PINK VINYL - The same single as above only this one is on "bubblegum pink" vinyl and the picture sleeve is a more durable cardboard sleeve. This is in MINT condition.
