Many many moons ago…Alexander Skarsgard sent out a personal note regarding something very near and dear to his heart…Hammarby of course!!
What’s Hammarby you ask…well in short…it’s the Tall One’s favorite fotboll/soccer team back home in Sweden…
Hammarby Fotboll is a Swedish football club based in Johanneshov – just south of Södermalm, the southernmost borough of Stockholm city center. In Sweden, the club is often referred to by its nickname Bajen (a short form of a mock-English pronunciation of “Hammarby”).~Wikipedia
So long story short…Bajen Aid was formed because the team is going bankrupt…something we can’t let happen…the Tall One would be sad : (
Bajen Aid is a non-profit society trying to raise support and money saving Hammarby Fotboll from going bust. Hammarby (also called “Bajen”) is a bohemian and famous soccer team in Sweden which currently has a huge financial deficit due to relegation from the top tier last year. ~Bajen Aid
So the Tall One was on his way to Sweden for the Bajen Aid auction back in 2010, when I asked if I could put a few of the items I had obtained over 18 months up on EBAY! He said sure and that he had more to send. And he did…with the help of the lovely Riita from the SkarsgardNews team (as our translator went to the event to get our stuff but had an appointment…the Tall One was running late that day but he did meet her at brunch the following morning…hence the handsome man on the banner above…and the pic below…Tack J and POK! : )
GQ Magazine, December 2009 Issues, were dedicated to the Men of the Year.
There were multiple covers released, each with a different subject(s) on the front.
This BOOK is a compilation of that month’s issues including the variety of front covers.
Alexander Skarsgard and his co-stars on True Blood (Stephen Moyer & Ryan Kwanten) appeared in an article on the inside. They were voted as the “Men Who Saved HBO”.
The three were photographed to appear in a cemetery…(see photo).
In November 2009, Alexander attended the GQ Men of the Year Party and received this hardcover book as a gift from Polo.
It is enclosed in a hard case which opens from one side to reveal the book (book is not attached and is removable).
The book case is 12″ x 9″ approx. and the book ends on the 316th page…so there’s a LOT of Men of the Year in this thing!
Alexander signed the front of the book, accidentally smeared the ink, then signed the inside page to make up for it. : )
The page he signed, you can see in the photos, is personally addressed to him by the Vice President/Publisher of GQ, Peter King Hunsinger.
He sent this personal party gift over to us as his desire to help save Hammarby continues (see BajenAid). What’s Hammarby you ask??? Well in short, it’s his favorite fotboll/soccer team from back home in Sweden…
Unlike a lot of signed items out there – We’ve included photos of Alexander signing the book to help prove his signature’s authenticity.
This is the DVD romantic comedy Hundtricket the Movie (The Dog Trick) – 2002 – Staring Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman – True Blood), Linus Wahlgren, Josephine Bornebusch, Ivan Nikcevic and Kjell Bergqvist.
It was personally autographed by Alexander on October 3rd, 2010 while visiting his home in Stockholm, Sweden (see pix).
As most Alexander Skarsgård fans know…his movies are hard to come by in the United States. Now is your chance to not only own a copy, but to own a copy signed by Alexander himself!
Simon dreams of finding his one true love. Until then, he spends most of his time watching chick flicks on video. He also shies away from the shallow young women that he and his friends Micke (Alexander Skarsgard) and Mario meet at bars. But Micke suggests something that is a definite babe-magnet: taking a dog out for a walk. It’s an instant success for Simon, he meets the delightful Mia who immediately takes a liking to him. But things are not always what they may look like….
This DVD is in it’s protective shell which is also covered by a cardboard sleeve of the film (cardboard has a rip on the back of the cover (see pix)). It is in otherwise new condition.
This is a great item to get your hands on if you’re a fan of Alexander Skarsgard or True Blood.
So in the spirit of Bajen…and Alexander…
Any questions or concerns…email me at JENNA@ALEXSKARSGARD.NET
NOTE: To curb a few questions early…
#1. This book/movie have been donated by Alexander and J, the winning bidder is purchasing the movie so NO…a tax receipt will NOT be given!
#2. The funds are being donated in Alexander’s name so YES…he will see final totals of auctions held and his management will be sent a copy of receipt of payment to BAJEN AID as proof! (For those who question where the funds are going…I wanted to make that clear!)
#3. Ask questions BEFORE you bid as the auction is NON-REFUNDABLE!! After I send the monies to Bajen Aid I cannot get it back…you’ll have to take my word that this stuff is what I say it is…from Alexander…from Sweden…via Riita and our J! We provide the pix of Alexander holding/signing the items as proof!
#4. YES YOU CAN HELP!! Please help us spread the bajenaid.se website link as far and wide as you can…they also have a twitter page…@hammarbysvanner
