A new batch of Topps Project 2020 cards autographed by Don Mattingly are on the auction block, with proceeds to benefit young people in his hometown.
Mattingly Charities has several of the Gregory Siff-created cards, signed by the former Yankees star and current Miami Marlins manager, who added a few different inscriptions to each card.
Mattingly Charities provides support to organizations who administer educational advancement, social development, and athletic programs for underserved youth in Evansville, IN.
The auctions are being conducted via eBay and continue until Saturday. Several other Mattingly-signed Project 2020 cards sold in previous auctions, generally in the range of $450-$550.
