Current bids: $100-$350, Rookie Relief for St. Jude
Now this is swag my wallet can get behind ...
Wolves rookie Kevin Love has helped kick off the inaugural Rookie Relief for St. Jude, a fundraising campaign to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer centers.
As ambassador of the campaign, Love has rounded up more than 40 of the NBA's top rookies and veterans to donate autographed game jerseys for an eBay auction. Participating players include Derrick Rose, O.J. Mayo, Michael Beasley, Greg Oden, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, just to name a few.
To entice you even more, Love has committed to matching funds raised through the auction up to $12,500. Well played, sir.
Anyway, if you can afford it, I strongly suggest you jump over to the auction page and bid on your favorite threads. I'm actually placing my bid on an "Epic Vale" jersey right this second. Merry Christmas, boss!
The auction ends at 10 p.m. EST on November 20.
