    Let's Turn the Jack Hoffman Card problem into a Positive

    For those who haven't heard the winning bidder of Jack Hoffman's card is refusing to pay. The full story is here http://www.beckett.com/news/2013/05/...d-goes-unpaid/

    However, I think we all can get behind Jack and let him know that many people care about him and are behind him, despite the act of one selfish person. I have created a blog with direct links and instructions for donating to "Team Jack" to fulfill this "bid". Thanks everyone and lets show Jack what being a part of the Husker Nation is truly about!!!

    Here is a link to the blog with links to give!!!

    This just goes to show you how amazingly horrible people can be. I just got confirmation my (non-autographed) card is shipped!

    I got my non autographed card in the mail yesterday. It even comes in a plastic card protector. How awesome is that? I am hoping that lil Jack has an autograph session .

    Why wouldn't the next highest bidder (and so on) get to buy it?

    They can't get in touch with them and/or they don't want it

    If you continue to have your practices open to the public, donít be surprised if they show up. All of them.

    Greatness is made in empty stadiums, but itís revealed in full stadiums.

    Got my card last Friday. My son in law (the Iowa fan) was so impressed, he ordered one.

    Well, I received my package from Team Jack! Wow, great looking card!! Will enjoy wearing the hat and shirts, and getting responses. I'll be sure to send them to Team Jack's web site.

    I cannot believe that!!! In any case, I will help defray, also. Will do it now.

    Again, what a wonderful project, hoping to cure cancer in children. Hopefully, one day, all cancers will not exist.

    Again, good luck, Jack! We all love you, and we wish you well.
