The Grammy Foundation’s new benefit auction features autographed goodies from Adele, members of Alice in Chain and more

With Christmas shopping season here and, of course, Cyber Monday, the Grammy Foundation is using the festive time of year to offer up some gift ideas for a good cause. The Foundation and MusiCares have teamed up to present various music-themed deals via eBay in an auction that kicked off Black Friday (Nov. 23) and will run through Dec. 3.

The fourth annual auction, called the Grammy Charity Black Friday Online Auction, features autographed memorabilia, ticket packages and more from the likes of Alice in Chains, Adele, former Ozzy guitarist and current Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde, Bruce Springsteen, former KISS guitarist Ace Frehley and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler. Just a few of the goodies for sale include autographed guitars, CDs, box sets, books, vinyl and concert packages. Not everything is super expensive, either, as prices start as low as 99 cents.

Some of the top items up for auction include VIP passes to the 2013 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute to Bruce Springsteen and various 55th Grammy Awards VIP packages. Other hot items include a autographed Epiphone ZV Custom Flying V signed by Wylde and a 1960 Epiphone Les Paul signed by the members of Alice in Chains.

Proceeds from the auction benefit MusiCares, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. To view the full list of items up for auction, head to the auction’s Ebay page.
