Ever wanted to own Meg White's drum kit from "The Hardest Button to Button"?

Have you ever admired any of the gear strung across Jack White’s shoulder in the White Stripes, Raconteurs or solo? The auction is to raise money for Clark Park, a hub for youth in Detroit who operate a hockey rink, summer programs and food for 100 youth daily.

While the auction includes some interesting vintage, antique and mechanical oddities, it also features White’s own equipment used during his time in the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, as well as some Third Man Records equipment, Jack’s record pressing plant.

Stars of the show include a Framus acoustic guitar used during his time in the White Stripes, a blue Ernie Ball Music Man St. Vincent guitar, and Meg White’s famous Ludwig Accent Drum Set. Besides this there’s some interesting Korg keyboards, a Fender Rhoades, road cases used for specifics tours as well as some Sears equipment including a Silvertone head.

If none of the music equipment tickles your fancy, Jack’s own Tesla is available for purchase, as well as the the Sebring-Vanguard Jack drove when he broke the world record for “World’s Fastest Record”, managing to record, press and deliver a vinyl record in under four hours under the watch of Guinness World Records.
