“Up for auction is a framed and autographed copy of the Legends of Ride poster. One of five in existence, this poster was never bound in the magazine, carefully rolled in with four others and sent off to Mat Hoffman, Jay Miron, Dave Mirra, Ruben Alcantara, and Taj Mihelich to be signed. It was then professionally mounted in a simple black frame, bagged, and has been sitting in one place or another since late 2004. Never opened or hung and in perfect condition.
All proceeds from this auction will go to benefit Mike Tag, who was recently diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. A legend in his own right, Mike was a huge influence to me growing up, and when I was lucky enough to meet him later in life, he lived up to every bit of the fix-all, funny, and surly-in-the-best-possible-way guy I looked up to when I was younger. Mike doesn’t have insurance and is unable to work during treatment, so I’ve decided to auction off this piece of Ride history (with the blessings of the other Ride editors) to help a fellow rider.
