MUSIC DOWNLOAD

For the first time ever, we are offering yet another option to help increase our charity total. We will be donating 100% of the proceeds from every download of my band’s album (I wrote many of the songs, played drums like Animal from The Muppets, and supplied some backing guitar tracks). Even if our music isn’t your jam, a simple download of the album will help us raise about $10 more. To download, simply scroll past the album cover pictured below and select your preferred method of download.

Due to the popular demand of the Non-Baseball spot in our annual Allen & Ginter charity case break, I will be auctioning off a toploader pictured below (NOT including the card that appears in the toploader) with 100% of the winning bid going to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The winner of that auction will also receive any and all Non-Baseball cards pulled in our A&G charity case break—including hits!

Please consider helping us raise as much as possible and BID NOW!

Our giant annual Topps Allen & Ginter charity case break has sold out (except for the Non-Baseball spot which will go to auction later in July), and now it’s time to really start raising some good money for a great cause—Big Brothers Big Sisters!

TWO WAYS TO GIVE
Just as we’ve traditionally done in the past, we will be accepting entries for our huge charity prize pack. We’ve also added a new way that you can help raise money. All you’ve gotta do is download an album and 100% of the proceeds will be donated. You don’t even have to listen to the album if you don’t want to!
