    Pledge US$ 3,000 or more About US$ 3,000

    SPECIAL OFFER: This is a very unique incentive that will be offered as an auction to only the 3 highest bidders, beginning with a minimum pledge of $3000. As the curator of the Ebbets Estate Collection of photographic archives, I oversee a magnificent collection of Charlie Ebbets’ original negatives, prints and personal memorabilia covering his 50+ year career as a professional photographer. In support of this book project, the family has agreed to allow the first-ever public release of 3 of his ORIGINAL 1930-1950s VINTAGE 8” X 10” SILVER GELATIN PHOTOGRAPHS that were hand-printed by the artist between 1936-1955. The 3 prints to be offered are: Bird Rookeries of the Florida Everglades, 1937; Baseball legend Ted Williams out for a morning jog in the Florida Keys, 1955, and Seminole Indian tribal elder and story teller Charlie Billie in his chickee hut in the Florida Everglades, 1937 (see images to the left on this page).
    The prints will be given out with first choice going to the highest pledge bidder, second choice to the second highest bidder, and third choice to the 3rd place bid. Each print will come with a signed Certificate of Authenticity and a personal note of Thank You for your support from the artist’s widow.
    Here’s how it works: the minimum bid will be $3000. Bidding begins on February, 18 and ends at midnight on March 10th. If you want one of these Collector’s photographs, do not pledge for it on the Kickstarter website. Instead, send us a message from the site, telling us what you wish to bid as your pledge and we will keep track of all bids received. On March 10th, I will contact the 3 highest bidders and ask you to make your pledges at that time. Once you have made your pledge, you will be offered your choice of the 3 antique prints based on your standing among the top 3 bidders. Don't miss out on this rare chance to acquire a true collector's piece.
