The final Borders sign was removed from the flagship store in Ann Arbor earlier this year, and the building's owners are now offering the letters for sale to raise money for charity.

Some of the two-foot high, Plexiglas and metal letters that spelled out "BORDERS BOOKS & MUSIC" are available to bid on via eBay to raise money for the Ann Arbor-based Book Industry Charitable Foundation.

The charity was founded by employees and executives of Borders Group, Inc. to help fellow Borders employees in need, and now seeks "to strengthen the entire bookselling industry through programs that provide short-term emergency financial support to book industry employees."

At the time of writing, the letter 'O' seems a bargain at $25, with 'B' and 'R' fetching the highest bids. The auction runs until January 31st. Click here to bid.
