Need extra incentive to donate to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute? Look no further.
An anonymous donor recently gave the Jimmy Fund a Rawlings Oversized Glove, a rare handmade item of which only a few are made each year. What’s more, the 15-pound glove features autographs from 38 members of the 2017 Boston Red Sox.
Here are pictures of the glove, which will be up for auction during the 2017 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon, presented by the Arbella Insurance Foundation, on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Imagine if the Red Sox win the World Series this year.
