Autographed Baseball Auction

Well, I’m all done tinkering with all the baseballs I could identify. I have about 22 signed baseballs that I will put up for purchase, and all proceeds will go to my charity. You can check out the details here. The charity is called, Snagging Baseballs for Puppies. Some rules that you need to know: I will not accept cash. There is no exception to this rule, whatsoever. Also, all prices are negotiable but understand this; once you donate and receive the baseball, I will not accept the baseball back. It’s yours to do whatever you want with it. And in the event that you do not like what you’ve received, this is a tax-deductible charitable organization. So in other words, if you are unhappy with what you’ve essentially donated for, you can get your money back at the end of the year (most of it, anyway). Or whenever you do your taxes next. I’m not trying to be unreasonable, I just wanted to point some of these things to you so we are all on the same sheet of music.

So without further ado…

First row from left to right: Troy Glaus, Alex Gordon, Dave McKay, Gary Mathews Jr

Second row from left to right: Brian Moehler, Bruce Chen, Max Scherzer, Dusty Baker

Third row from left to right: Mario Soto, Jose Cruz, Jerry Lynch, Brian Moehler

Fourth row from left to right: Melky Cabrera, Torii Hunter, Kevin Seitzer, Edison Volquez

Fifth row from left to right: Rick Hacker, Bud Norris, Colby Rasmus, Brian Moehler

Last row from left to right: Jim Maloney, Ryan Hanigan

Here’s how this is going to work. I’m going to make things fairly simple to reduce any kinds of problems that may arise. All you have to do to get a hold of one of these prized possessions is leave a comment below claiming which baseball(s) you want (first come, first serve). Secondly, send me an email with your name and address and I’ll take care of the rest! Make sure you go to Crowdrise.com to make your donation! Don’t worry about shipping costs and all that jazz. I’m not really prepared to set up any kind of auction system if someone comes to me with more money for a baseball. It’s simple ,first come, first serve. So if you see a ball you want, jump on it.!I’m not sure how fast these baseballs will go. Also, the Dusty Baker ball and the Ryan Hanigan ball, the signatures are a little faded. And none of these baseballs are on authentic Major League balls.

Now for the best part. I have a 2009 Cincinnati Reds team ball up for purchase as well. And here’s the kicker; since I got Joey Votto on a separate baseball, I’m combining the two! Here, take a look:

The team ball with all those signatures that you see? That’s on an official Major League baseball. The Votto signature isn’t. The reason why I didn’t use authentic MLB balls is because they’re like $15-25 dollars a piece and these Rawlings balls, although, just as good for signatures, were quite a bit cheaper. So I could get more of my favorite players on many more baseballs. I just want you to be aware of what type of baseballs these signatures are on.

Anyway, to wrap this up, I’m listing the prices below:

Troy Glaus: $20.00 (No longer available)

Alex Gordon: $20.00 (No longer available)

Dave McKay: $10.00

There’s your prices, folks! Throw some bids my way in the comments section and we will see what we can work out! Remember, shipping is free, and this is a tax deductible charitable organization! All proceeds go to my charity and I thank you for looking!

I Like Doing Things For Charity, But I Don’t Have Access To A Bunch Of AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALLS!!!
So I Figured A Reblog AND Shout-Out Could Always Help
-BRAD

Brad- Everything is appreciated! Spreading the word is very useful and effective. Thank you so much, and I did get back to you via email. Thanks again!

Dusty Baker please

Rose,

Great! Please send me an email to WaynePeck@yahoo.com with a good mailing address and if you need help with the donation page on Crowdrise.com, let me know! I can walk you through the steps! Thank you so much!

Hey Wayne,
Thanks so much for all you do for puppies. My dogs, besides baseball and my kids and grand kids are my life. Would do anything for shelter dogs. I can’t send my donation until Monday , is that going to be okay? I really want to help out bit just got knocked for a loop when a “check in the mail” didn’t show up. I am good for the money I promise. Let me know. Thanks, Rose

Rose-

That’s perfectly fine. Things happen in life. Just let me know and if you haven’t already, send me your address so I can be ready next week. Thanks again!

Can I just reserve the Max Scherzer ball. Due to my schedule these days, I might not be able to get to actually donating to Crowdrise, or any of the other people’s charities this weekend, but I would like to buy that ball, when I have time enough with both a credit card and a computer, to do so.

Mateo,

I know you’re good for it, man. I’d be more than happy to reserve this baseball for you. Drop me an email at WaynePeck@Yahoo.com with your address and whenever you’re ready and I’ll drop it in the mail.

I’m now not sure the place you are getting your information, but great topic. I needs to spend a while learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for excellent info I was searching for this information for my mission.

Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

Hello there, I discovered your site by means of Google while searching for a related subject, your website came up, it looks great. I have bookmarked to favourites|added to bookmarks.

Still got Volquez?

JARED-

Nope. Sorry, bud. I’ll be putting up a new blog post of autographed baseballs soon, though. May not happen for a while. I’m waiting on a friend to drop more off. I’ll keep you posted on Twitter. :)
