Will Andrew Shaw leave you in charitable stitches?

We're a little late to the "punch" with this one, but Yahoo Sports' Greg "Puck Daddy" Wyshynski revealed that Andrew Shaw's auctioning off the stitches he earned in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final this past June--to raise funds for charity--and I'm curious as to whether your reaction involves an "eww factor"...

haw has decided to use his folk hero’s moment from Game 6 to raise money for a cause dear to him and his loved ones, in a rather unique way: Shaw is auctioning off his face stitches from the Blackhawks’ Cup-clinching victory to raise money for cancer research.

Beginning on Aug. 15, the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research will be auctioning off the stitches from Shaw’s cheek for 10 days on eBay.com.

Don’t worry, potential bidders: It’s not just a bag of used wound dressings. The stitches will be professionally framed with an autographed photo of Shaw, and the auction winner gets some other items in the lot as well.

The foundation said that 100 percent of the final bid price will be donated to breast cancer research, via Shaw’s wishes.

Definite ew factor but also a bit of a cool factor once it goes into the nice frame with signed picture and everything they mentioned.
