I have been given a signed Scotland shirt from David Goodwillie to raise funds for the Five Sisters Zoo in West Calder who have recently rescued 3 circus bears, these bears are now at their new home but funds are still required to pay for the amazing enclosure which has been built for them.

I can confirm the shirt is genuine and it is the yellow top from the Liechtenstein game on the 8th October. I can get photo if required.

I need advice on best way to raise money and if anyone can suggest how I should "auction" shirt or any other way this would be very much appreciated.

Info on bears can be found at www.fivesisterszoo.co.uk

Thanks

Annie

Annie,

Cant help with best way of raising maximum cash, but i will be more than happy to bid when you have sorted that side of things out.
If you can post a photo of the top that would be good.

Good luck with raising the cash



BTW, brace yourself for some sarcastic posts about bears & circus's from the non Rangers posters on here! ;)

One bit of advice Annie, to maximise the money made from the sale, you should obtain a letter from Goodwillie confirming its authenticity.

If you listed it on Ebay (as a charity item) you'd get worldwide exposure so I'd recommend going the Ebay route.

Also, if you obtain some proof of authentication then it'll boost interest, it's not essential, though.

ebay probably is the best route. You could always post a link on here when it's up on the site. Most TA clubs are reasonably small so for anyone to take it off your hands and offer to raffle it, you'll probably be - at best - only exposing it to around 150/200 people.

By the way - read the coverage about the bears when you took them on. Good for you! I'm hoping to get through to the zoo at some point as it looks like you are doing some really good stuff there. Only difficulty is me fining the time as all my spare time is taken up with my dog, horse and fitba!

How much do you think you'd get for it at auction?

I think it's possible that some sort of raffle might well raise more money.

I'm not sure how much it would raise on eBay, my problem with a raffle is where would I sell tickets ? I am going to try and arrange for David Goodwillie to get photographed holding the shirt to prove its authenticity, I will just need to find out next time he is home then I can get something sorted. I think eBay sounds a good way to hopefully raise lots of money for the circus bears.

The beauty of Ebay is that it's universal, which means that it'll be in the shop window around the world.

I have 500+ rating on Ebay so I'm quite experienced, but I've never listed signed. If I were guess I'd say that you'll be looking at £75-£100 for the shirt, but that's just a guess.

Good luck.

Lol.

I'm not perfect, no one is.

If I win the auction, will the bears do a wee dance for me?

We just sold a signed Scotland strip at an auction for my teams player of the year night. It went for 375 to a well known tartan army member so just an idea of how much you could potentially get!

I am going to get a photo of David holding the shirt then put this on eBay and hope for the best. Thanks for all the comments and advice. I will post a note when I get this done,
