It’s been a while since I posted anything or even sat down to write anything, but this isn’t about that right now. I will provide a minor update and it is that I’m doing a little better and I hope to be posting some content on this blog soon. Today though, I want to tell you about a Charity Auction that I’m currently holding with the help of @TnTTradingCards
TnT Trading Cards is letting me use their eBay store in order to do the first of hopefully many Charity Auctions. This current auction is for an authentic Mick Foley Autograph that I obtained at Spooky Empire in October of 2018. This autograph is personally made out to me, but I’m auctioning it for a good cause. 100% of the proceeds will go to the STOMP Out Bullying (@STOMPoutBullyng) organization and TnT Trading Cards has even offered to pay the shipping costs for shipping out this item. TnT Trading Cards is a great little eBay business that I have the pleasure of running their social media and I’m so glad they were not only willing to help me out but also excited about doing so.
The reason for this charity auction is because one it’s for a good cause and second because I have no need for an autograph that has become meaningless to me. To someone else it might mean something and I truly hope it goes to a good home, but for me this is about getting something that I feel is toxic out of my life and helping out a good cause by doing so.
I know it has my name on it, but it is for a really good cause and I hope that you guys at least take a look at it and maybe pass it on to a Mick Foley fan. The auction has no reserve and is starting at 99 cents. If this is successful, I plan on doing a few more of these in the future. You can check out the auction here.
So if you’ve read any of my blogs, you might know that I’m an old school WWE fan. Mostly because I never finished a lot of WWE games. Anyway, this was the first year that MegaCon was going to have some WWE superstars attend the show. While I didn’t necessarily know the newer people who attended, I did know this fan favorite and knew that I had to meet him because of the tremendous amount of respect that I have for him. So my last autograph session for Saturday was the one and only John Cena.
I have to say that I was once again a little annoyed at the no personalization on the autograph thing because, if you don’t get it personalized then it’s just a random autograph. I know this isn’t the celebrity’s fault, it’s mostly the event and the handlers because they have these huge people that attract massive crowds and they want everyone to get an autograph. But seriously, writing a name takes an extra five seconds. Anyway, I picked out the picture I wanted and went up to meet John Cena who has to be one of the happiest people that I have ever met. He was genuinely happy to be at MegaCon and meet his fans.
When I first met him he immediately shook my hand and this man’s hand is huge. Like his hand covered my whole hand. I let my dad take the lead on this one as well and let him tell a joke about John Cena recently losing at WrestleMania to the Undertaker. It was a corny joke, but John still laughed and said how he would have to remember that one. After a minute more of conversation we were rushed along and the session was over.
I really enjoyed meeting John Cena and it was an awesome way to end the day of autographs. Not only does John Cena do a lot for our troops and the Make a Wish foundation, but he does a lot for his fans and really takes the time to talk to them and interact with him. So a big thank you to John Cena for a pretty awesome autograph session.
