Jack Hoffman card lands on eBay

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

One of Jack Hoffman’s blow-up rookie cards from Upper Deck has landed on eBay with the proceeds from the auction going to the Team Jack Foundation.

Upper Deck created five of these cards for the Hoffman family. According to the auction (view here), one went to 7-year-old Jack while the other four were signed. Just one of the cards is up for auction. UPDATE: The card finished at $6,100.

In this auction, one of the cards signed in silver pen is being sold. With three days left, the auction is already at $2,300.

Hoffman is fighting pediatric brain cancer. The money raised through this auction and other avenues will go the Team Jack Foundation, which will in part support pediatric brain cancer research.

Hoffman entered the media spotlight in April when he ran for a 69-yard touchdown in the University of Nebraska’s spring game. Hoffman had befriended one of the Cornhuskers, Rex Burkhead, after he was diagnosed in 2011.

The card is currently on display at Prep 2 Pro Sports in Norfolk, Neb.

I noticed this earlier today and all I can say is it’s just great. With 3 days left it will do well and the proceeds are going to a great charity. Go Jack!

i have a theory that doctors and scientists already discovered a cure for any cancer. those docs are making so much money from government funding and private donations and if they let the public know that a cure has been found, that funding will vanish. so instead we get drugs that will only give cancer patients an extra few years or months to live

Bart why do you insist on trying to ruin the great story of Jack? Try your theory in a more relevant forum. Yes cancer is a horrific tragedy affecting nearly every American in one way or another but this is for one of the better moments in a cancer patients life!

Lol @Bart, no offense, but my initial reaction to all conspiracy theories is usually a chuckle.
The particular nonsense of THIS one is that the accolade of being the person that cures (any) cancer would far exceed any temporary monetary gain (by hiding that cure).
(That should be obvious to anyone, however, I continue to underestimate the influence of the ‘conspiracy’ virus that apparently some people catch.)
