A great weekend with friends and a new charitable direction!
7:20 pm cdt
We had a great weekend last weekend in Nashville, TN meeting with clients Jai Miller, Michael Taylor, Jemile Weeks, Jordan
Brown, and our newest client, Eric Farris. My boys were so excited to have breakfast with Michael, Eric, and Jai and
to learn what great guys, in addition to great athletes, each of them are.
The weekend helped to renew our
focus on providing the best service available in the industry to both our clients and our customers. We are excited
to announce that over the next few weeks, we will work to have every item in our inventory updated both on our site and on
eBay. In addition, we will be working to bring new items to market from a number of our clients, both existing partners
and new players whom we have not previously carried items for.
We are also excited to be working towards the launch
of client-specific sites for two of our leading Major League clients, Drew Stubbs and Jason Bartlett. We will be meeting
with both during the next two weeks to discuss details and hope to have both sites up and running by the All-Star break.
The sites will feature game used inventory from each player, along with the opporunity to purchase limited edition signed
items and other surprises down the road.
Finally, we are excited to be working on two new charitable efforts.
"Luke's Lineups" will raise funds for research into leukemia, with proceeds donated directly to St. Jude's Children's
Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. "Homeruns for Heroes" will raise funds for both The Miracle League, a wonderful
charity funding the construction of special baseball facilities for children and young adults with disabilities, and The Wounded
Warrior Project, providing funds to assist those who are injured in the defense of our great country. We are proud to serve
as the driving force between both efforts, as we believe a key part of our mission is to "Go Beyond" our day-to-day
activities to make sure we make a difference in our world.
I am excited about the new focus and direction
within our company and truly appreciate the continued support of our clients, partners, and customers.
Bless and Go Beyond!
