Being an Alaskan, like may others, I follow the Iditarod. From Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast, each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 10 to 17 days. It has been called the “Last Great Race on Earth” and it has won worldwide acclaim and interest.
Since people outside of Alaska like it too, I thought there might some interest in some Iditarod stuff. Since I am an autograph collector, I figured… why not… maybe I’ll auction some Iditarod autographs. The first group of items I listed on eBay were from my collection. Then I thought I would try to get every musher form the 2011 Iditarod, so I bought tickets to the Musher Banquet in Anchorage Alaska. I got two things signed by EVERY SINGLE MUSHER (62 racers) of the 2011 Iditarod for the fundraiser.
