I wanted to help them out so I selected a few cards.
Who doesn't like a Cub in uniform? Well, probably a fair amount of people. But I wanted one.
|1994 Pinnacle - Jose Guzman|
|1990 Upper Deck - Bill Sampen|
I like that Sid Bream signs his cards with a scripture reference.
|1991 Topps Stadium Club - Sid Bream|
|1993 Topps - Sid Bream|
|1989 Bowman - Sid Bream|
I'm not at all familiar with Rob Ducey. All I know is that he played in Japan for a while for the Nippon-Ham Fighters. I had to have this card.
|2013 BBM - Rob Ducey|
These cards were either $2 or $3 each. A fair price and the funds go to a good cause. The process was rather straightforward. I contacted Tim Virgilio, let him know which cards I was interested in, used Paypal to complete the transaction and in a few weeks (this was over Thanksgiving) the cards showed up in my mailbox. In just over a year Tim has raised over $5,750 for MMIA.
Nick Diunte has a nice interview with Tim from earlier this year at his Baseball Happenings blog.
