Years after the musician’s passing, Wolf returned to Doug and was sold in a 2002 Guernsey’s auction conducted at NYC’s electric Studio 54, where it fetched close to $1 million, more than doubling the existing world record. Now, Wolf’s buyer, wishing to support the important efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center and its continuing fight against racism and hate groups, has returned Wolf to Guernsey’s for an unprecedented one lot auction of this most treasured guitar. The proceeds of the winning high bid on this extraordinary instrument will go to SPLC. This Guernsey’s event, additionally supported by the Relix Group, will be held on May 31st, live at the fabulous Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. Absentee bidders will also be accommodated.
From San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom to NYC’s Palladium to Egypt’s Great Pyramids, Jerry and Wolf travelled, appearing in front of massive, passionate audiences. It is no wonder that the devoted Deadhead who purchased the Wolf in 2002 has said, “I’ve been a fan of The Dead since I was a kid, and playing this iconic guitar over the past 15 years has been a privilege. But the time is right for Wolf to do some good. My wife and I have long supported the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and if ever we needed the SPLC, we sure do need them now.”
Rarely, if ever, has there been an item as memorable and noteworthy as the Wolf being sold in support of such a worthy cause. Guernsey’s is thrilled that the return of Wolf will go a long way to combat racism and injustice across the country.
Brooklyn Bowl is proud to present on May 31st a spectacular Guernsey’s auction event, where celebrated musicians will have a chance to play Wolf one last time before it finds a new owner.
