If you're like me, you've spent a good amount of time with a heavy heart this past week thinking about the millions of people affected by Typhoon Haiyan. We want to help, but what good can our individual donations do? Well, not that much. But I got to thinking, what if the card collecting community teamed up? I bet we could do a lot of good together! So I reached out to the fine folks at Steel City Collectibles and they were just as excited. Together, we're hosting the Typhoon Haiyan Relief SUPER-MIXER Baseball Group Break!
Here's how it works. For $38, you can pick any of the available teams here to claim for the break. If you don't see a team you want or just can't decide, you can purchase a random team for just $35! The teams will be randomized on the day of the break.
We'll be breaking TEN boxes of baseball products from 2009 to today. Check out the list below!
|2013||Topps Series 1 Hobby - 1 Hit|
|2013||Topps Series 2 Hobby - 1 Hit|
|2013||Topps Archives - 2 Hits|
|2013||Topps Mini - 1 Hit|
|2013||Panini Triple Play|
|2011||Panini Contenders - 6 Hits|
|2011||Topps Lineage - 3 Hits|
|2010||Topps National Chicle - 3 Hits|
|2010||Topps T-206 - 2 Hits|
|2009||Upper Deck X - 1 Hit|
That's a total of at least TWENTY (20) hits! Not to mention inserts, parallels, etc..
So now you're wondering how buying into this awesome break will help with the relief effort? It's simple. Steel City Collectibles has put together such a great deal, that with your help filling up the entire break, we'll raise nearly $500 for children in the Philippines through ChildFund International. How incredible is that? ChildFund International has been on the ground in the Philippines helping children received basic necessities, but they're in critical mode right now and don't have everything they need to ensure the safety of all of the children who have no home or family to return to after this devastating storm.
By raising this money we will be responsible for clothing and feeding dozens of children, effectively saving their lives. When was the last time you could take responsibility for that? Talk about some good karma...
All you have to do to sign up is click the button below and select either the "Pick A Team" or "Random Team" option in the drop-down menu prior to checkout. If you select the "Pick A Team" option, make sure to include a note saying which team or teams you're claiming. Please also include your name and address if you aren't prompted to do so already.
The kicker is that we have GOT to fill this bad boy up and fast. I'm aiming to do the break on Thanksgiving weekend. It will be live on a video streaming site TBD. That means we have two weeks to spread the word and make this happen! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE share this post on your own blog or with others you know who might be interested. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below and I'll get back to you ASAP. Thank you everyone!
