Using eBay to Express Yourself – Michael Vick’s Chewed up Cards

eBay Seller ballnfish has an excellent auction. Their entire collection of MICHAEL VICK (Falcons quarterback) cards were given to the dogs and the chewed up remains of the cards are being auctioned off. All the money raised will be donated to an animal shelter of the winner bidder’s choice. So far 98 people have bid the chewed cards up to $2,325.

“I AM NOT OUT TO MAKE MONEY ON THIS SINCE I AM PAYING FOR THE LISTING/INSERTION/shipping FEES OUT OF MY POCKET. THIS IS FOR MY LOVE OF DOGS/ANIMALS, ESPECIALLY THE ONES WITH NO VOICE.”

Vick is facing several charges related to a dog fighting ring he allegedly set up and funded in Virginia. The Sports Network is reporting that Vick ‘will admit that he was present when dogs were killed, but will maintain that he did not personally kill any of the dogs.’I love seeing personal expression and forms of protests done in such a tasteful clever manner as this eBay auction is.

UPDATE: Darn eBay! After reading the auction and posting about it this morning, the following message appears when you load the auction page: “This listing (200142824314) has been removed or is no longer available.”. Too bad, it was really well done.
