Trade deadline approaches...
as we anxiously await the July 31 MLB trade deadline, waiting to see if any of our clients change organizations, we wanted
to update you on some changes to our site and also express our gratitude to a couple of clients who assisted us recently with
a fund-raising effort for the Ronald McDonald House in Memphis, which provides support to the families of children being treated
at St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

With regards to the site changes, we have made a few improvements which we hope
will make navigating the site and finding sought-after items easier. We are always looking to improve hte sites for
our customers, and appreciate recent feedback which notified us of a couple of programming glitches which prevented easy access
to our Authentic Collection items.
We want to sincerely thank Nick Stavinoha (Cardinals), Brett Gardner (Yankees),
Nick Swisher (Yankees), and Aaron Cook (Rockies), along with their agents, for helping us contribute a number of high demand
items to the recent Ronald McDonald House Charity Auction in neighboring Memphis, Tennessee. Partnering with 730FoxSports,
our client contributions raised several hundred dollars for this incedible effort.
We also want to extend
a special thank you to Nick Stavinoha for taking time out during the All Star break to call in to the auction and talk about
his promising career (our words, not his...he's much too humble) and his time spent in Memphis as a member of the AAA Memphis

Nearing the break...
Hard to believe the season is already half-over! Thanks to all of our customers who continue to recognize the value
of our clients' equipment and the investment potential offered. We are thrilled at the continued growth of our business
and truly appreciate our customers, clients, and other partners who keep us going!

We recently added three new
clients we are very excited about, including Chris Pettit (AAA-Angels), Joe Dunigan (Adv. A - Mariners), and Eric Thames (Adv.
A - Blue Jays). All three are highly thought of in their respective organizations and are expected to debut in the big
leagues no later than next season.
We are also thrilled to work with a number of clients who were named to their
respective league's All-Star teams, and have featured these All-Stars on the home page this month.
A new feature
we will add next month will be a "20 Questions" segment with participating clients that will aloow you to get to
know our clients a little better. We think you will enjoy the insights offered by each player.
