Whacky, but a good cause. Wonder if it still features Eton's famous wrinkle-resistant properties

The winner gets a MTM in time for New Years???
that is lightening fast.

"All proceeds will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, UK."

I think it's very noble.

I wouldn't say its "noble", as they are probably writing it off, but it is a nice gesture.

Whether you "write it off" or not, it still costs $$.

Noble is donating money anonymously, not buying a goofy shirt on eBay.

But I guess it is good marketing for Eton and after all if that's what it takes to get people to donate for a good cause, great.

I've never understood why, on high-value auctions like this, they won't just pay the extra $1.00 to get super-size pictures.
