Default A nice member story....

...though I am not at liberty to disclose their name I want to tell you what they did.

When I listed the 5 Star Russel Wilson for Team Conner this member PM;s me and asked if I would sell some cards for them and donate the $$ to Connor's family.

Read about Connor and his family here-
Prayers and Positive Thoughts needed stat ... Please Read

Also I won't post it here but you can also donate directly. PM Me for details.

I told them I would be happy to.

Well today comes a Medium Flat rate box I open it up and unwrap all the cards and I see the card on the back of 1 of the 4 piles.

There are 51 total cards

I am not ashamed to tell you that these items brought a tear to my eyes.

A list would not do this justice so I will be scanning and listing the cards in this thread before I list them for sale.

Here is a picture of 2 of the cards in the lot....

Yes, that was a very nice story Jon. Thank you so much for sharing. Connor is in my thoughts all day everyday and I tip my hat to the member who sent those to you for the cause.

What a fantastic gesture for a brave little boy. This is what I call sacrificial giving. If I was to ever write a book on this topic it would be called "The poor do not like Lima Beans Either".
