I can't open the Buzz link on my work computer, but I really hope Topps is donating ALL proceeds instead of capitalizing on a tragedy.

"Look for a #TOPPSNOW card commemorating MLB's team[s] wearing Stoneman Douglas caps coming soon ... with proceeds donated to the Broward Education Foundation," the company said in conjunction with a Chicago Cubs tweet and the photograph you see here.

Thanks for this!

Of course, the cynical old man in me notices that the lack of specificity on the word "proceeds" can be interpreted so many different ways. Is it 1% of the proceeds? Is it 50%? I'm assuming we'll never know. I'm also assuming Topps is going to make a lot of money off of the deaths of 17 people.

The cynical old man in me wonders if they'll do this every time there's an incident like this.

I just got an email from the Orioles. They/MLB are auctioning off their caps with 100% of proceeds going to the Broward Education Foundation. This C.O.M. likes that the wording on these auctions is that specific: https://auctions.mlb.com/iSynApp/all...512-1055368043
