Man In Hat Monster Auction of Signed Music & Memorabilia

Valued by Whyte’s  – Auctioneers of Art and Collectibles – at €5,000++

BACKGROUND: This is a unique opportunity for any music collector to be part of Irish history. What became an idea born at a meeting only in late March 2015 turned into something that caught the eye of not only the Irish music industry but the media and the press alike. Man In Hat presents to you autographed music and memorabilia of different types of genres of music donated by Irish artists and the Irish public since April 2015.

Some rare pieces, some international pieces and all being sold in one lot with the full proceeds of the final bid going to The Society of St Vincent de Paul and Inner City Helping Homeless to provide them with immediate access to funding for tackling homelessness in Ireland.

To see this collection in more detail please visit our ‘Collection’ page where we promoted the contribution from each artist to social media and thanked each contributor individually. 

In our collection you will see contributions from some of Ireland’s biggest acts in the form of Hozier, The Strypes, The Coronas, The Riptide Movement, Snow Patrol, Imelda May, Kila, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Glen Hansard, The Frames, Mundy and The Fatima Mansions. We also have signed albums by international artists, Nirvana “Nevermind” album signed by David Grohl, “Hot Fuss” signed by The Killers, “Only Revolutions” signed by Biffy Clyro and more.

AUCTION: We now present all of this gathering of music by Irish musicians and the Irish public in one massive lot of signed music and we will continue to collect more and add to this lot right up to the 18th June.

Bids will be entered into Whyte’s auctioneers book and the auctioneer, Mr Ian Whyte will bid for the highest bidder against the room and phones in Whelan’s night of 18th June 2015.
