American punk rockers Blink-182 are following guitar legend Eric Clapton's example, and selling their memorabilia for charity on auction website eBay.
Among the original pieces for sale are handwritten lyrics to the group's song "Rock Show". With six days left to go, the lyrics have already attracted $20,300 with 79 bids.
Elsewhere, a promotional CD for the band's What's My Age Again single currently stands at $2,025.
Meanwhile, the value of an orange shirt worn by bassist Mark in their 'Dammit' video has been pushed to $2,226 with 57 bids.
According to reports, proceeds from the sales will be donated to help victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, specifically the efforts of charity organisation the Red Cross.
Yet another example of now the bankability of collectibles can do much to help and raise funds in times of crisis.
