Beginning tonight and running through the remainder of the Yankees home games during the regular season, fans can bid online (yankees.auction.mlb.com) for the replica WWE wrestling belt that was passed around the clubhouse and awarded by the Yankees players to that day’s player of the game.

The one-of-a-kind collector’s item has been signed by the Yankees and will be on display at the guest services booth at Gate 6.

Proceeds from the auction will be donated to HOPE Week participants Camp Sundown, a year-round camp in upstate New York for children suffering from Xeroderma Pigmentosum (XP), a rare genetic disease which causes the body to be unable to repair cells damaged by UV light.

A.J. Burnett organized this effort. Here’s hoping the Yankees raise a pile of dough for a good cause. If you’re at the game, go take a look at the belt. The guys really have had a lot of fun with that all season.

UPDATE, 6:07 p.m.: Here is the direct link to the auction.
