Four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Max Pescatori has listed one of his pieces of poker hardware on eBay.

Unlike nearly all of the previous times a WSOP bracelet has found its way onto the auction site, Pescatori is selling it to raise money for charity.

This bracelet comes from his win in the 2015 $10,000 seven-card stud hi-low eight-or-better championship. He won $292,158 in that event.

The Italian poker pro wrote on the listing that there was an earthquake in August in his home country, with a lot of damage coming to the town of Amatrice.

“This winter another earthquake plus heavy snow made things even worse,” he wrote. "100 percent of money received from eBay for this item will go to the charity “Capiricchia nel Cuore,” which will move the money as needed directly to the current project. In the recent weeks, they have been able to purchase mobile homes that were delivered and used right away to help locals who lost everything."

The bracelet was going for $5,100 as of Tuesday morning.

The sale closes on Feb. 16.

Before Pescatori’s bracelet, the last one to appear on eBay was from Poker Hall of Famer Tom McEvoy. It appears that one did not sell.
