    Great cause! The skates are an autographed pair of new girls skates - not ones Michelle has skated in BTW. I had to read it twice b/c after I looked at the picture, I thought they looked too small and new to have been used by MK.

    bidding is up to $1025. I've seen other MK autographed skates on Ebay before and they usually get pretty high bids.

    Here's a link to the auction if you want to check out the bidding..

    Interesting, bidding started at a modest $50 and has so far reached over $1,000. Evan Lysacek's skates had a starting bid of $250, modified to $200, and no one bid.

    If you go to MK's forum there is a thread "Michelle supports Teen with a Dream" there are two videos of a MK interview on this subject totaling almost 12 minutes. Enjoy.

    I hope so because once bidding hit $950, Mr. Kwanford put his foot down by showing me the final bill for our son's soccer fees... How skating parents do it is beyond me...

    I put two bids in but when it hit the $1800.00 mark that was it for me.
    There was a consistent bidder screen name "Steinway" who won the
    skates. Whomever he/she is they really wanted the skates because every time a a bid came in higher than his/her he would up the bid. I hope it was you Mathman

    I'm afraid I was just a little Spinet compared to Steinway Grand.

    Just think waking up in the morning with an autographed pair of ice skates on the wall in front of you and the signature is Michelle Kwan.

    Does this mean Michelle is retiring?
