The 11th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon All Star online auction, running now through Aug. 16, is offering a variety of autographed items.

For the past five years, a chef at Fenway Park has collected signatures and messages from famous Boston sports heroes and other local celebrities who have dined at Fenway Park including Pedro Martinez, Rico Petrocelli, and Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd, on their kitchen’s white board.  This unique auction item features more than 50 signatures inscribed in permanent marker on a 36×24 white board bordered by a black wooden frame. With over five days remaining, bidding had reached $1,000.
