Interrupt With An Important Announcement

If you have been following my blog for at least a year, you know we are approaching one of my favorite months of the year, October.  Each October I like to bring awareness to breast cancer, one of the leading causes of death in all females.  

While browsing Twitter today, I came across a message from Brandon Crawford and his wife with support from Andrew McCutchen and his wife.

Here is a link to the Catch A Cure Twitter with support from Brandon Crawford, Andrew McCutchen, Buster Posey, Greg Maddux, Eric Hosmer, and many others.

Taken directly from Tiny Turnips page where you can buy merchandise to support children with cancer is this message

"100% of Profits from the sale of items in the “Catch A Cure” Collection will benefit The Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital – San Diego.  The Peckham Center is home to a full range of specialized cancer treatments and hematology services, as well as psychosocial resources, life-after-cancer programs and pace-setting clinical research. As a not-for-profit hospital that ranks among the top pediatric hospitals in the country, Rady Children's relies on philanthropy to continue to provide world-class care to more than 250,000 children each year"

I know I ask for people to donate in October, but here is a chance to not only help benefit children fight cancer, but you can also get some neat swag too.
Personally, I'm going for one of those cool mugs and maybe a t-shirt with my name on the back.  I hope I can share the story about the organization to anyone that asks "What's Catch a Cure" mean?

MLB has recently began allowing players to wear a golden ribbon on their uniform in September.

Many of the 2019 Gypsy Queen autograph cards of Andrew McCutchen feature him wearing the gold ribbon to support Child Cancer Awareness.

I am still in need of the base autograph, but have the Bazooka Back, Fortune Tellers Mini, Rainbow Foil, and Black and White parallels.  

And here is a card that features 3 of the more famous players to support the Catch a Cure program.
It is my 2018 Triple Threads booklet card with some very large patches including a sleeve patch, the R in a San Francisco grey uniform and the G in a home Giants uniform.  


  1. Excellent cause. Thanks for making me aware and sharing!

  2. Looking forward to October again!

  3. Thanks for sharing the link. That's a great cause. I ended up buying a onesie for my niece and a shirt for my nephew.
