Football is Upon Us
This week I received yet another piece of sports memorabilia that I am able to auction off to raise money for the trip. Outback Steakhouse generously donated a very cool item. This time the item crosses over into the football realm. Click the link below the picture to go straight to the auction page!
Up for auction is the above pictured 2012 Outback Bowl Signed and Framed Poster. The frame is a custom 24x27 poster frame. This poster came directly from Outback headquarters and was donated to the charity project. This framed poster features two tickets from the game and autographs from each of the coaches above their respective school's logo. Above the Michigan State logo, Head Coach Mark Dantonio, wrote "Go Spartans!" and signed his name. Above the Georgia logo, Head Coach Mark Richt, wrote "Go Dawgs!" and signed his name. This would be an excellent piece for a fan from either school and would go great in a man cave or sports room.
On another side note the biggest impact on this project his week comes from Jimmy Traina, Sports Illustrated's Hot Clicks Writer. This past week he posted my project on his daily PM Hot Clicks. From that I received more page views than I could ever imagine. For that I would like to thank him. You can check it out for yourself by clicking here.
The Ike Davis glove is still up for trade. I need to get the trades back going again so we can send a sick child to the big game. If you know anyone that would like to trade or would like to do so yourself, please send me an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always keep following along or start following if you haven't on Twitter @TwoBlueDice.
