The special 'heart' helmet - autographed by the seven times world champion - was used during his home Italian GP at Mugello in June 2007. Designed by Aldo Drudi, only three were ever made - one of which was thrown into the crowd by Rossi after winning the race.

Proceeds of the sale will be donated to the non-profit organisation 'Un sogno per il Gaslini Onlus' association ('A dream for Gaslini Children's Hospital').

The eBay auction is scheduled to begin at 12.00pm on Thursday, 22 November and will end at the same time on Tuesday, 27 November. The bidding will start at €1 (one euro) and direct access to the eBay page can be found via www.dainese.com.

The 'Un sogno per il Gaslini Onlus' association was started to help in the completion of a new unit at Genoa's Giannina Gaslini hospital, Italy's largest children's hospital.

As well as helping a worthy cause, the winning bidder will receive the helmet from Rossi himself in early December!

good cause and all but is someone really going to pay that much?
If I had the money to burn I would. Especially you get to meet Rossi in Italy. I'm sure there are plenty of people in this world that have the money to burn for a ticket to Italy and winning the auction.

If I had the money I would buy it just to fly to Italy to meet Rossi.

Rossi looks like such a goof ball in the pic. If one did not know him and seen him you would never think he could race.

The replicas are a little different from the real deal, if they're even real lids, as the article said, only 3 were made.
