Select Hart and Huntington tattoo artists from the Las Vegas, Orlando, and Niagara Falls shops have put their artistic abilities to good use, designing custom New Era 9FIFTY snapback caps that reflect their personal style, and will be auctioned off in support of the Athlete Recovery Fund (ARF). Each cap features a seal of authentication and originality signed by the artist and Carey Hart, and will come in a satin-lined custom New Era hat display case.
Starting February 8th, and running until February 18th, the public will be able to bid on the custom caps directly on the Hart
and Huntington website. Each cap will be awarded to the highest bidder once the auction closes at Noon on February 18th.
The caps will also be on display in the RCH Racing team’s activation area at the San Diego Supercross event, held at Qualcomm Stadium on February 9th, 2013. Fans will have the opportunity to see the caps and bid on them in real-time at the event.
Additionally, fans will be able to weigh in on their favorite design by casting their vote through a custom application on the Hart and Huntington Facebook page. Once the 17 caps have been narrowed down to 3 finalists based on the highest number of votes, Carey Hart will personally choose the cap he likes best of those three. The winning design will be put into production and be exclusively sold online at HartandHuntington.com and at all three Hart and Huntington Tattoo shop locations.
One hundred percent of the funds raised from the online auction, and 5% of all future sales of the produced cap, will go directly to ARF to help injured riders get back on their feet and get the care they need.
