Why this cool swag Charity Auction?

Updated: Jun 6

Sometimes I put my swag and specialty collectibles up for auction (usually to benefit the ACLU). What's different this time?


Link to auction are now included.


I have spent the past 6 weeks raising money for the Brassica Foundation for Chemoprotection Research, Inc. For those of you who know my family, my father, Dr. Paul Talalay, was an eminent cancer researcher working at Johns Hopkins for more than 60 years. His most recent significant work made it to the front page of the NY Times -- about the cancer-preventative properties of specific anti-oxidants.


The Foundation: https://brassica-foundation.org is a 501c3 charity for promoting research on cancer prevention and protection.


He was also a kind and generous mentor to many and a dedicated teacher.


We recently have been given the opportunity to create an endowed professorship at Johns Hopkins in our parents' name. We have to raise over $1M for this --- hence the auction which is a drop in the bucket, but some possible fun for passionate fans.





Items will include some of my personal collection and artwork. Highest profile items include:


Preacher: a rare, original Steve Dillon comic book page from issue #4 featuring @rse-f@ce. These are increasingly hard to find.
