    Hey gang,
    Look quick!! Miss Piggy's glove is up for auction on www.missionfish.com
    It's framed autgraphed by the pig and proceeds go to "Educate the children". The auction ends tommorow (6-22) at 3:30 EST. ANo bids have been placed yet, but the item has just been anounced over at the puppetry web site so puppetry collectors will be looking at it today and tommorow. Good luck to any bidders.

    Thanks for the heads up Matt! Looks like it's for a good cause, so hopefully the bids will start rolling soon.

    I edited your post to correct the web link. Hope you don't mind. :)

    Well I'm poor, but thats what plastic was invented for. Let it be known I put in a bid for the glove (I think I need my head examined)

    Does anyone know if the glove comes with a certificate of authenticity?

    I tried the ask a question feature on the site, but it wouldn't send my question for some reason.

    Thanks!

    Why, oh why, oh why did I have to find out about this auction. I have a budget here and my money is currently going to the "Put Ken Lilly's Future Kids Through College by Buying Muppet Figures Fund", I can't afford to bid on this Glove. But still, it's so tempting, I think the urge is unstopable. Let's just hope the amount of money it's going for stays relativley low or goes above what I can afford. It is awesome, though, I hope one of us folks at Muppet Central eventually gets it. Just as long as it's not some insanely rich kid who wants to buy a pair of batting gloves and stumbles upon this... *shivers*...

    Yeah I decided to put my money more towards Muppet figures instead of this, but I figures someone on this board should have it. That's why I posted the link and BTW: Thanks Cindy for fixing it for me. I'm no good with these things. Good luck gang. I'm away from my computer this weekend so someone let me know what it finally goes for.

    Well so far I've got the winning bid for the glove. I will keep you all posted. I need this like a hole in the head, and I'm a little leary now that there I realized there isn't a certificate of authenticity with it.

    Didn't mean to make you nervous about the glove! Did you email the donar to make sure there isn't a certificate?

    It does look like the signed gloves I've seen before (wasn't there one auctioned off by the For All Kids foundation on eBay a while back?). I don't really doubt the authenticity. A certificate just increases the value and all.

    Gonna do that right now. Just to be safe. I just don't know what I'd do with a glove that small!

    Why not make a Missy Piggy to go with it???

    What I want to know is WHO signed the glove? was it Frank Oz, Jim Henson? Whooo???

    Just wondering...=)

    That glove sure looks tempting..hehehe!

    It was most likely signed by someone from the Muppet Workshop.

    Well, looks like the auction is over and won. In the end, the reserve price was met and the glove went for $120.00, does anyone know who won?

    The reserve price was met after my first bid. On my way up to Memphis today a couple of auction lurkers swept in and grabbed the glove. It went for $120.00, to rich for my blood at this point in time anyway. Don't know who won it. I really had gotten excited about it in the last 24 hours.

    I also emailed them to find out if it had a certificate of authenticity, but never got word back from them. Oh well. There's always next year. What I want is the Muppet Christmas Tree that was auctioned off ten or twelve years ago. It was an actual Muppet Christmas tree made by the Muppet Workshop. It's one of the few Muppets in civillion's hands that I know of.
