To raise money for the South River Youth Athletics (SRYA) 10U travel baseball team, the team raffled off a one-of-a-kind signed copy of A Philly Special: Christmas Special vinyl record donated by Connor Barwin, former Eagles linebacker and current Eagles director of player development.
The front cover of the LP was signed by Connor Barwin (in black Sharpie) as well as the following current Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman (in gold Sharpie):
- Jason Kelce
- Lane Johnson
- Jordan Mailata
As far as I know, this is the only signed copy like this in existence and here's a photo of the album that was donated.
100% of the proceeds from this raffle went directly to the SRYA 10U travel baseball team to help reduce costs of new equipment, uniforms and league fees, and the money will also help the team make progress towards their long-term goal of playing a tournament in Cooperstown!
The lucky winner of the raffle was the Denney family, who's son Tripp (depicted in the photo below between his younger brothers Chase and Drew) is on the 10U travel baseball team. Congrats to the Denney boys for winning the prize and seeing it under their tree on Christmas morning. It's fitting the signed record went to the only Philly fans on the team!
