SEGA New Zealand is holding a charity auction of SEGA Mega Drive memorabilia, including a Limited Edition Vinyl Soundtrack and Sonic the Hedgehog canvas print.

The auction commences today and will be available through TradeMe. You can check it out here. All proceeds from the auction will go to Starship.

Gary Russell, Brand Manager for SEGA New Zealand says he is expecting some fierce bidding for the auction. “The Vinyl Soundtrack has been stamped #0002 from a world wide production of only 3,500 which makes it unique and the Sonic the Hedgehog Canvas print has been specially created for this auction, featuring some iconic artwork from the first Sonic Videogame.

“The auction is a great way to help the kids at Starship and also give New Zealanders an opportunity to bid for some unique SEGA memorabilia,” he says.

The auction is to celebrate The SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection, an all-in-one package of over 40 classic titles from the golden era of the SEGA Mega Drive. This is the most complete collection to date of SEGA first party games ever offered. Featured games include; Sonic the Hedgehog 1, 2 and 3, Columns, Alien Storm, Ecco the Dolphin, Space Harrier, and cult classic, Streets of Rage 1, 2 and 3.

The SEGA Mega Drive Ultimate Collection will be available on the 28th February for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Trade Me auction featuring the Limited Edition Vinyl Soundtrack and Sonic the Hedgehog canvas print will commence today and will run until Thursday February 26th.
