Blizzard Charity Auction Benefitting St. Jude

General Discussion
Want to own a piece of Blizzard Entertainment history? After a series of World of Warcraft infrastructure upgrades, we’ve preserved the retired HP server blades that once hosted many realms in our archives. In the near future a selection of these blades will be made available for auction, and the net proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

So I am about to own a server blade..
Im so in.
Question. Can we get VIPs to sign the blades?
I'm excited to see how this plays out, I'm sure the servers will go for crazy amounts, which is good considering where the money will go :)
For everyone wanting Vanilla servers, well, here you go.
lol!

so true
Just out of curiosity are these the old servers that were upgraded back in '06ish? I remember getting quite a few days of game credit for downtime back then during that whole ordeal..

This. x1000
Very cool, and good choice on St. Jude.
Blizzard took a discarded piece of junk and turned it into a collector's item.

Then they turned that collector's item into an asset that will help a very deserving cause.

I approve.

haha
Some folk's call em server blades. I call em a sling blade.
St. Jude's footed the bill for my brother-in-law's treatment and care, and also made his last year good for him. I'll definitely be throwing down some bank for this!
