Rancho Obi-Wan Announces Fundraising Events


By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars fan community legend Steve Sansweet has announced his upcoming fundraising plans to support his Rancho Obi-Wan museum, home of his world record holding Star Wars collection.  Two events will be beginning on March 2nd (this coming Sunday), the first, the Rancho Obi-Thon, is an auction consisting of many rare and one of kind items, the second, known as Rancho Obi-Wan Dupe Deals, is also an auction this time for items which Steve has multiples of.

The Rancho Obi-Wan website describes the Rancho Obi-Thon as, 
"First up is Rancho Obi-Thon, a seven-day eBay charity auction to raise funds for the ongoing cost of running Rancho. There are original artworks and prints, one-of-a-kind fan-made collectibles, autographs, posters, prototypes and many other items. Featured is a double-sided Revenge of the Sith theatrical poster autographed by George Lucas, Samuel Jackson, Ian McDiarmid, Hayden Christensen and others.
Donors include artists such as Dan Bergren, Katie Cook, Doug Cowan, Ingrid Hardy,Adam Hughes, Erik Maell, Eli Rutten, Allison Sohn, and Jerry VanderStelt. Other contributors include Tom Nelson, Prop Store, Paula Rosenberg, Walt Crowley, Gentle Giant, Highbridge Audio, Super7 and Funko.
Rancho Obi-Thon starts on eBay on March 2, 2014 at 12 Noon Pacific Time."

If the Revenge of the Sith poster signed by George Lucas, Samuel Jackson, Ian McDiarmid, and Hayden Christensen doesn't get you excited, I don't know what will!

The Rancho Obi-Wan website describes the Rancho Obi-Wan Dupe Deals as,

"Also starting March 2nd will be a continuing series of eBay listings under the title Rancho Obi-Wan Dupe Deals. These are duplicate Star Wars items that owner Steve Sansweet has amassed over the years, usually by forgetting he already had an item and buying it again! Steve is contributing all of the items for the auctions, and proceeds will go to Rancho Obi-Wan. Each purchase will be accompanied by a certificate attesting that the item is a duplicate from the world’s largest Star Wars collection."

This sounds like a great way to make some additions to your collection!
