Default O/T - BST Items Listed w/ All Proceeds Going to Charity for IDD

First and foremost, I want to thank Leon for reaching out and letting me put this post up on the main page.

Very briefly, I will be taking part in a 100km endurance cycling event through Miami this November on behalf of the Best Buddies organization, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of children and adults affected by intellectual and development disabilities (IDD), including those affected with Down Syndrome, Autism, Fragile X, Williams Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury and other related disabilities. Best Buddies' programs empower the special abilities of people with IDD by helping them secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, form meaningful friendships with their peers and feel valued by society.


As part of my commitment to the organization, I’ve pledged to raise a minimum of $10,000 for Best Buddies. So, in order to help me reach my contribution amount, I am going to be listing some items for sale on the BST pages, with 100% of the proceeds to go directly to my fundraising efforts. In addition, if you purchase an item, in lieu of paying me for it, you can pay for it directly by making a contribution to my fundraising efforts at the following link, or by paying my directly via paypal gift so that I can make the donation:

www.bestbuddieschallenge.org/miami/support/#4127


Right now, I've listed the following items for sale on the BST, but I'll be adding more as my efforts go along and I'll update this thread with any new items I've posted:
  • B18 Joe Jackson Blanket (Yellow Pennant) SOLD
  • E90-1 Cy Young PSA 2
  • 1905 Honus Wagner Advance Brands (SGC Encapsulated)
  • 1910 E-Unc Johnny Evers SGC A (1 of 2 known)
  • 1900s Cigar Box Top of Truxton Grays feat. Buck Ewing SOLD
  • John F. Kennedy Cut Signature
  • Mickey Mantle Signed & Framed Display
  • Chick Gandil Autographed 3x5 SOLD
  • 1888 Scrapps J.C. Rowe (SGC 20) SOLD
  • Lot of Assorted T206 and T205 Cigarette Packs, including Sovereign, Piedmont and Sweet Caporal SOLD
  • 1955 Bowman Baseball Unopened Pack (GAI 4)
  • Tony Lazzeri Signed Album Page
  • 1992 Little Sun Unopened Set #22/3000 - Possible Jeter Autograph SOLD
  • 1949 Bowman Stan Musial Autographed Card SGC A
  • John F. Kennedy Signed "To Turn the Tide" Hardcover Book
  • 1883 Home Run Cigars Box (Only Surviving Example)

Thanks in advance for indulging me with this post!

...

FYI - A little about Best Buddies since we all want to be sure that our donations and the charities we support have the greatest impact on the lives of those who are the intended recipients. In 2017, Best Buddies achieved a platinum transparency award (the highest possible award) with a 92/100 accountability and transparency rating, and an overall charity score of 89.09 out of 100. More independent evaluation information on Best Buddies can be found at https://www.charitynavigator.org/ind...ary&orgid=5446. Best Buddies International is a registered 501(c)3 organization, and its tax id number is 52-1614576.
