By now, you guys know all about Rob's Unfinished City (HERE) and have seen more pics (HERE).
Something else that's awesome is the current bid: $3000! Click HERE if you got a credit card and know how to use it before Aug. 31st. ;)
The popularity of Rob's artwork is not too surprising for us but it's taken the Home Plate Project team by surprise and made them see Rob and his fans in a new light. It's exciting to see something Rob contributed his rarely shared artistic talent to making such a mark. Another fun thing has been the email conversations. I wanted to share a specific one.
Cory, from the HPP crew, emailed us a story that came in an hour after a reader, Denise, sent in the pictures of her night at a particularly special ballgame in Arizona. From Cory:
Quick story to share. We had a family attend tonight's D-backs game and said they purchased tickets just so their daughter could see Rob's plate. We decided not to initially display it since the bid is so high--more of a security issue than anything else. So, we retrieved the plate and they came back in the 3rd inning. The Mom asked if the daughter could hold it and take a photo. We respectfully declined to have her hold it just in case it was dropped (or someone runs off with it), so one of our team members held it while the daughter got up as close as she could with pride.
The power of Rob led a family to buy tickets to our game so their daughter could lay eyes on one of his creations. Not too shabby.
Enjoy your weekend...The power of Rob :)
Hope the DR enjoys the weekend as well. Hope you're proud to be a Rob fan like Denise. And I hope you're excited for that awesome guy to own it on Monday and through the week as he promotes the US release for a film he's especially proud of.
Thank you, Denise, for sending us your pictures :)
So much pride in this post....I think we need the ProudMamaSteph gif to close it out...
