New Star Steps Up to Buy Cancer Patients Sports Cards

by Associated Press posted May 28 2013 11:26PM
 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A 7-year-old cancer patient who had a trading card issued in his honor after he ran roughshod over the Nebraska Cornhuskers has found new buyers for cards set aside for his charity.
 
     Among those stepping up: actor James Denton, who was on "Desperate Housewives."
 
     Video of Jack Hoffman's run during Nebraska's spring football game was an Internet hit. The Upper Deck Co. issued a card for Jack, with signed blow-ups for his foundation to auction off.
 
     The winning bidder for the first card declined to pay, saying he hadn't authorized the $6,100 bid. Jack's father, Andy Hoffman, says news coverage prompted three buyers to offer $10,000 each for a signed card. 
 
     Denton lives in suburban Minneapolis, and the Hoffmans traveled there to meet him Tuesday. They are from Atkinson, Neb.
