Last week's auction for a complete set of NBA media guides has a winner: It's Bob Brown of Toronto, whose bid of $175 blew everyone else out of the water.
That'll make for a nice Christmas present for
Sportsmen's Proudfoot Corner at the Star's Santa Claus Fund (named for the late great Star columnist Jim Proudfoot). Thanks to Bob, Wes Wayne and Pete and the rest of 'em at Brown Books, where the lunch hour and the coffee breaks are filled with Raptors talk. This has some symetry too, because it was Bob who submitted the winning bid on a similar package a year ago.
Thanks fellas. Much appreciated.
UPDATE: Bob's cheque ended up at $200 to Proudfoot Corner. Fantastic. Again, many thanks guys.
