Cards for a cause

A few weeks ago, I was glued to the TV as Hurricane Florence made way towards the Carolinas. With many family and friends in the area, I was particularly interested and certainly hoped that it wouldn't be as bad as anticipated. I know for some it wasn't, but others along the coast certainly got hit hard and are still recovering.

A few days later, friend of the blog and Twitter follower @CaniacCollector reached out and mentioned he was selling some lots on eBay, with all proceeds going to nearby hurricane relief effort. Of course I was interested in helping. Not only did I need some of the cards, but it was a worthy cause and something I respected him for doing.

The cards that caught my eye most were these two, as I hasn't picked up and A&G or Archives:
Nice! I still don't have many Stanton Yankees yet, and RCs of Frazier are fun.
I also liked this card a lot. This dude had quite a game last night. It was sad to see so many people give up on him this year. Yes, he struggled and dealt with injuries, but he has an explosive bat at a premium position. He showed last night how he can change the game with one swing of the bat.

Here was the rest of the lot:

Thanks to @CaniacCollector for the cards, and for his help with the relief efforts.


  1. Is your buddy still running his cards for a cause on Ebay?

  2. Very cool. Always cool to see cards being sold for a good cause. I've run several natural disaster fund raisers at my school and the best part about it is seeing the kids get excited about helping those in need. Like I tell my students... you never know when you're going to be the one looking for help.
