Marvel Comic (Signed) - AUCTION Benefiting LLS & TNT for Andy & Tranette Rose

I am hosting this Charity Auction for my friend and fellow TNTer, Andy Rose.  He and his daughter, Tranette, are on our marathon team training for Nike DC Half Marathon with us this coming April.

Below you'll see three photos. Two signed Marvel comics and one of decals, patches, bracelet, and an LLS LED light. See all details below...


About the comics: 
These comics were sent to Aidan "80" Peterson by Marvel Comics while he was in the hospital with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. After he found peace and went home to Heaven, his Mom Lawson, gave them to Andy and asked him to keep one for himself as a memento of Aidan and to AUCTION one to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through his and his daughter's TEAM in Training fundraising account. 

Both comics are in *mint* condition. THE HIGHEST BIDDER WILL HAVE CHOICE OF ONE OF THE TWO COMICS. ONLY ONE (not both)! The other as stated above is being framed and kept by Andy.

In addition to ONE of the two comics, the winner will also receive ONE LOVE 480 patches, ONE LOVE 480 decals, one "SOMEDAY IS TODAY" LED keychain light, and one CUSTOM MADE bracelet as shown made by Andy's wife, Dione. The bracelet shown is "by way of example". If you're not a runner and would rather have a bracelet made with orange (80's favorite color) or another color Dione can do that.  This bracelet is purple and green for Team in Training.
