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.
